LoRa is a radio frequency protocol used by many different Internet of Things applications, including some ERMs used in pest control.

While LoRa, as the name would suggest, provides long range sensor connectivity like Trapmate does, LoRa gateways require a power connection, which limits where you can place them at a site, and, by extension, reduces your ability to set up good connectivity between your gateway and your ERM sensors.

Since Trapmate Hubs are battery-powered, you’ll be able to place them on walls, rafters, rooftops and other areas which will ensure you can monitor hundreds of traps at a distance in practice, not just in theory.
