Image/Video Capture Sensor Enhances Edge Computing Platform

Polysense Technologies announces commercial availability of image and video capturing on its LoRa-based WxS end node and iEdge computing platform with patented image and video analysis. The Polysense WxS 8800 universal sensor node series incorporates Semtech’s LoRa devices and wireless radio frequency technology (LoRa Technology) and LoRaWAN open standard from the LoRa Alliance to support ranges of 3 km to 5 km in none line of sight (NLOS) urban environments, and over 15 km reach in LOS (Line of Sight) open environments.


With nine integrated internal sensors and connectivity for an external analog and digital sensor, the WxS 8800 enables a wide range of IoT applications.  Reportedly, with the new image and video capture capabilities on WxS 8800, Polysense is thought to be the only vendor that provides smart triggered capturing of event detections for applications such as asset protection, perimeter security, and senior care.
