LoRaWAN Solutions – LoRaWAN Devices: Gateway and Sensors

Standard Wireless Technologies for Smart Buildings


LoRa is a wireless modulation technique derived from Chirp Spread Spectrum (CSS) technology. Encodes information into radio waves using “chirping” pulses

LoRa is an ideal technology for connections over long distances, where information is communicated that involves little volume of data and the sensors do not have network power.

Due to its high penetration and low cost of implementation, this technology is increasingly used to transmit information inside buildings.

LoRaWAN is a Medium Access Control (MAC) layer protocol built on top of LoRa Modulation. It is a software layer that defines how devices use LoRa hardware.

A typical LoRaWAN network architecture is made up of nodes and gateways .


  • Ultra low power  – LoRaWAN end devices are optimized to operate in low power mode and can last up to 10 years on a single coin cell battery
  • Long range  – LoRaWAN Gateways can transmit and receive signals at a distance of 10 kilometers in rural areas and up to 3 kilometers in dense urban areas.
  • Deep indoor penetration  – LoRaWAN networks can provide deep indoor coverage and easily cover multi-story buildings.
  • License free spectrum  – We do not need to pay a license for the use of the frequency spectrum to implement a LoRaWAN network.
  • High capacity  – LoRaWAN Network Servers can handle millions of messages from thousands of Gateways
  • End-to-end security – LoRaWAN ensures secure communication between the end device and the Network Server using AES-128 encryption.
  • Firmware updates over the air  – Firmware can be updated remotely for a single end device or group of end devices.
  • Low cost  – Minimal infrastructure, low cost end nodes and open source software.
  • Certification program – The “LoRa Alliance certification program” certifies end devices and gives end users the confidence that the devices are reliable and compliant with the LoRaWAN specification.

Smart Building

Building an efficient and sustainable future

Smart Building

What is a smart building?

A Smart Building is a structure equipped with innovative technologies that allow communication, management and control with all its systems so that they are automated and monitored.

Through these technologies, all the variables that intervene in and configure the building are controlled and monitored, collecting information on different parameters: air conditioning, lighting, electricity, security, telecommunications, computing, access control, etc.

The data obtained is used for the control and correct operation of the facilities, increasing their safety, usability and accessibility , allowing efficient maintenance and monitoring of incidents. Thus, an intelligent, more sustainable and ecological building is created.

Benefits in a Smart Building

  • Energy saving. Thanks to the intelligent management of the building, better efficiency and the desired comfort are achieved at a lower energy cost, achieving considerable savings through the control of lighting and ventilation.
  • Thermal and light control. They adapt the temperature and intensity of light in the environments according to a schedule to suit the needs of the user.
  • Safety. Smart buildings offer their users security mechanisms and access levels to be able to manage and view the different types of alarms that occur in their different systems, such as fire alarms, existence of high concentrations of harmful gases, floods, unauthorized access, etc. etc.
  • Comfort. The set of technologies that it integrates manages to create a pleasant environment for users in an efficient way.

IoT Wireless Solutions for Smart Buildings

  • Intelligent handling of information.
  • Integration of different magnitudes such as air conditioning, lighting, electricity, security, multimedia telecommunications, computing, access control, etc.
  • Interaction with users.
  • Anticipation of the needs of the occupants.

Connect any Modbus device to your LoRaWAN network

Connect any Modbus device to your LoRaWAN network – easy and fast commissioning, with the unique MLB gateway



Huge remote monitoring possibilities are opened up for building automation projects by turning Modbus-based field devices into IoT devices by connecting them to a long-range wireless LoRaWAN network. The Low Power, Wide Area (LPWA) network protocol connects all kinds of devices to the Internet, on a public or private network. Our new and exclusive MLB Modbus LoRaWAN gateway is a flexible way to connect any Modbus RTU device from Produal, or third parties, to LoRaWAN.

With the MLB gateway, you can convert Modbus RTU messages to LoRaWAN wireless communications, and read and write registers, to transmit messages such as low weight loads over long distances. Commissioning is conveniently done with the Produal MyTool® mobile app, where you will find ready-to-use description files for the most common Produal Modbus devices. It is also easy to create definition files for any other Modbus device.

The MLB Modbus LoRaWAN gateway is available with an internal or external antenna. Configuration is quick and easy using Produal’s Mytool app for Android systems, which allows various ready-made device profiles and description files to be used in the configuration.

The MLB gateway acts as a Modbus master device and can read and write 32 freely configured Modbus registers via the Modbus RTU bus, allowing two-way communication. Based on the 868 MHz frequency band, the MLB gateway is suitable for European markets.


Matrix has more than 30 years of experience in the distribution of technological products for the industrial sector and system integrators. Contact us and we will find the best solution for your project.

New modem MTX-IoT-S with 8x digital I/O and 2x ADC

The new MTX-IoT-S is a 4G (LTE), 3G and 2G modem programmable in Java and characterized by its 8 digital inputs/outputs and 2 ADCs that convert analog signal to digital (at 4-20mA). In addition, it includes other interfaces such as RS232 and RS485, relay, USB 2.0, possibility of working in Ultra Low Power mode, backup battery, etc. All this, together with the option of adding GPS or RF communications through its expansion port, make it a benchmark in its segment, both in terms of capacity and power, as well as the number and variety of interfaces. MTX-IoT-S is fully compatible with Cervello IoT Platform and with MTX-Tunnel, which makes it a powerful gateway without the need of further programming skills.

What can I do with the new MTX-IoT-S?

Sending alarms by SMS or voice call

MTX-IoT-S is able to send alarms by SMS or voice call with changes in the devices connected to any of its 8 digital inputs.

Sending telemetry up to 8 digital inputs

MTX-IoT-S can send real-time measurements from up to 8 digital inputs via MQTT to, for example, Cervello IoT platform.

Remote management of up to 8 relays or digital outputs

MTX-IoT-S allows you to remotely manage via MQTT, Telnet, SMS or voice call up to 8 relays or digital outputs.

Automatic activation of relays/digital outputs based on the Modbus registers collected

MTX-IoT-S is capable of automatically activating or deactivating up to 8 relays or digital outputs depending on the Modbus registers collected. In addition, you can automatically notify this status change to the Cervello IoT platform using MQTT.

All this examples add up to everything you can already do with MTX-IoT, MTX-Java-T and MTX-Java-T2.
