Hattersheim, located along the picturesque river Main, is a testament to forward-thinking digitalisation. In 2019, the city boldly embraced innovation by opting for state-of-the-art IoT wireless technology for remote sensor management. This visionary step materialised thanks to a robust collaboration between HEY iiOOTE, a leading authority in smart consumption meters, sensors, and dashboards, and melita.io, the German LoRaWAN radio network operator, extending nationwide coverage. The radio network covers the entire city area.
Guided by Alexander Schwarz, spearheading the Economic Development Department, and Guido Faust, the IT Manager of Hattersheim, the city embarked on a transformative journey by adopting cutting-edge LoRaWAN-based wireless technology. This strategic choice positions Hattersheim strategically to confront the digital challenges of the future. Guido Faust, expressing his enthusiasm, remarked, “Our initial strides involve the installation of water meters and smart radiator thermostats, which signify our inaugural contributions to resource conservation in Hattersheim. The synergistic collaboration among the three parties involved has been truly exceptional.”
The adaptability of this wireless technology ushers in a plethora of opportunities, ranging from river and watercourse level monitoring to streamlined car park management, precise radiator adjustments, and dependable smoke alarm systems, all within the expansive domain of the Internet of Things (IoT).
Tobias Stiepak, the visionary CEO of MIOT melita.io Technology GmbH, underscores the transformative potential of this technology as more sensors are integrated and additional applications are introduced. Stiepak points out, “This technology stands out not only for its remarkable adaptability but also for its substantial capacity to enhance efficiency and drive cost savings. Resource conservation has emerged as a paramount concern, and by managing heating thermostats via LoRaWAN, we offer a sustainable means to reduce CO2 emissions with manageable effort.”
