Lora Alliance, members for all you've done for the world, for the planet, for our help, for our safety, and for making businesses better at what they do. Alright, let's move on. I'm honored to introduce our keynote speakers today from AWS. Michael Mackenzie is the general manager of AWSIOTAWSIOT device management. And a WS IoT device defender in Karthik Ranjan is responsible for driving Lorawan ecosystem strategy for AWSIOT. He is currently the North America Regional Vice Chair for Lora Alliance and board member for the Lore Alliance. Thank you for joining us today. Michael and Karthik, thanks, Donna. Hello and welcome to everybody. I'm very excited that you could join us today. So IoT spends many use cases, an many verticals ranging from manufacturing to healthcare to agriculture. Let's take a look at some examples. You know we've got a lot of predictive maintenance for factory equipment, for example, coming out of manufacturing for healthcare. It might be remote, patient monitoring and predictive maintenance for humans. If you take it like that for agriculture, maybe it's about maximizing crop yields. And for worker safety, it's about reducing accidents and increasing productivity and keeping our people safe. So nobody comes to us and says hey, solvent IoT case for me customers come and say hey I need to solve a real world problem and I I need technology and I need architectures that can support that real world problem and often IoT can be the answer to that. So IoT architectures span from the very simple to the very complex. And it requires the right ecosystem from day one, from device to cloud customers, you know they want to quickly get to those business outcomes I just mentioned by having solutions like predictive maintenance of factory equipment before breakdown or again in agriculture. Maybe it's addressing plant dehydration before it stunts plant growth in healthcare. Again, you know, by being able to predict or offset a major health event and to get there we need to be in a position where we've collected an analyzed. All the data that make make our decisions more clear, and so you know we have to be able to have that data collected before we can plan and figure out how to react and eventually get to that goal of prediction. And it's also important to note that there's really no one size fits all solution for IoT connectivity. There's really a number of factors here to consider, like distance or bandwidth and power consumption. So depending on your application, you really need to pick the right tool. Wi-Fi is high bandwidth, and it's a short range technology, so this is great for things like smart home cameras. And you know, other applications like that, but our remote and indoors. But you know the high power consumption also means that they might need to be plugged into a wall or recharge frequently. 5G and LTE offer great long range, but their high bandwidth also means that they use a lot of power. So again, these might need to be plugged in or recharged frequently, and this relies on having a really stable signal. You know, we could also use Zigbee and Bluetooth user lower bandwidth and that's great, but they also operate in a 2.4 giga Hertz range, so that can be somewhat limiting depending on the application and that brings us all to the LP Wan technologies. The low power, wide area network technologies that can deliver small data over a really long range and this is the basis of LP when that we want to talk about and that we're looking at, and this is particularly useful when devices or sensors. Are located in remote areas where cellular connectivity might be spotty. Or maybe you want to transmit message data over really long distances or when you want to augment an existing sensor or control application with wirelessly installed battery powered stick in place sensors. Lora Wan in particular provides an excellent alternative here and in many cases you need these sensors to last several years. In these IoT architectures. And again this is where Laura win is great because it can provide. A really long battery life because the energy consumption of Laura when is quite ideal for these applications. And I guess it's also important to note that customers don't have to just pick one connectivity mode. In fact, a lot of customers who deploy IoT solutions have multiple types of connectivity so that they can pick the right tool for the right job at the right time. So you know, Lora Wan in particular has some great benefits here. Lorawan can provide coverage of 1 to 3 miles in urban areas, so it's really ideal for applications like rideshare bicycle tracking or reading data from utility meters on the sides of houses or buildings, or even used for predictive maintenance on something like a wind farm. It's also a great fit for indoor use is you know cases like thermostats and door locks or light bulbs, other connected home or connected smart building products because it can penetrate between walls and floors of building. You know from the top floor to the bottom floor through multiple layers of concrete Lorawan can do that. So this is a great technology for this and the load data rate of Lora Wan means that Laura sensors can have a battery life of up to 10 years. I've mentioned this earlier and this makes them really really cost effective. Because when you install a Lorawan sensor, there's little to no battery replacement, which means you don't have to roll trucks is off and you don't have to go to the site as often and this makes it really really cost effective. And finally, you know, Laura when is based on a secure standard, so it only allows legitimate devices to be connected to the network. It checks that that network traffic is not been altered, and it ensures network traffic can't be listened to or captured or replayed. So it's got a lot of great benefits for these IoT applications. I mentioned earlier that customers deploying IoT often have more than one type of connectivity, and as it a great example, one that I am personally love this case we're working with a company called Halter Halter has a cow monitoring solution for dairy cattle where they utiliza connected collar which includes both Wi-Fi and Laura. When using the solution, the farmers are actually able to track and geofence the cows as well as it being able to steer them. With little actuators and vibration to where they need to be on the farm, whether it's to get them to a watering hole or have them come into the barn for milking, they can actually use these to steer cattle. Halter uses Wi-Fi in the barn for any of their high bandwidth operations, like perhaps updating the colors on the cattle. Or you know doing an over the air update. Things like that, even updating some of the machine learning models that are used to help steer the cattle. But Lora Wan is used for the cows out in the field to do the active monitoring of the cattle, figure out where they are, how they're doing, things like that, and the combination of these two connectivity types is actually what gives halter this really low cost solution compared to using something like, you know, cellular devices for the same application. Now there's there's different ways to deploy Lorawan network. For one, you know Laura wins supports both public and private networks. Public networks are similar to cellular, so these run by operators who deploy and maintain gateways as well as the Lorawan network server in the cloud. This provides the simplest way for customers to just purchase devices, purchase a plan from the operator, an access that data via the cloud to to their cloud APIs. Not all of these are created equal an. And sometimes operators may not have coverage or customers might want to choose to deploy their own private network for a variety of reasons. In this case, there's two methods to deploy private networks. One is LNS in the cloud and the advantages of an LS in the cloud, or that it it allows the deployment of multiple gateways in the field to enable wider coverage. It also simplifies the role of the gateway and enables customers to harness the power of the cloud to analyze and act upon the data. There's another way, which is Ellen S on the gateway and this is great for situations where you have spotty or no network coverage. You know, such as in oil and gas or mining and remote locations, and you need to have that ability to process data immediately at the edge. So we're working with global oil and gas Company whose continuing their journey of digitising their manufacturing support and their retail systems, and some of this equipment is located in remote areas, so they are constantly evaluating new ways of gathering data, getting more data, getting data in new ways to optimize their maintenance schedules. And recently this company decided to add temperature and vibration sensors to some of their equipment, and they're evaluating all sorts of different Lora Wan technologies to do this. Now Lorawan provided a really excellent low-cost solution here because using the Laurel and sensors, they can replace a lot of ad hoc data, checking and maintenance with predictive maintenance reports. By automating data collection an integrating this with machine learning and so that this allows them to provide operators better insight into their assets, reduce unplanned downtimes an get to that magic line of predictive maintenance. Yesterday at AWS, we launched a fully managed LNS capability to enable you to connect wireless devices that use Laurel and technology and we're pretty excited about this. So this is called a WS IoT core for Lora Wan. Using this you can set up a private Lorawan network by bring your own devices and gateways and connecting them directly to a WS IoT with no Lorawan network server setup required and this capability is now generally available. It it's great because what what? This allows us to do is provide a fully managed LNS, and we've illuminated the undifferentiated work and the operational burden that's required to set up and manage an LNS and the associated infrastructure. We've also provided built-in integration with other AWS services like Dynamo S3, the IoT core rules, engine, analytics machine learning so that you can take advantage of the full awos application ecosystem. We've also made it really. Easy for you to on board your devices and gateways with support for the lower Wan standard. Also an open source gateway software and a Gateway qualification program. And maybe best of all, you only pay for what you use. We've provided consumption based pricing that we believe will save our customers a lot of money with this offer. An you know through our beta program we've been working with some great customers and I want to call out one of them, called compliance mate compliance May provides food safety systems for quick serve. Restaurants like Chick-fil-A, Shake Shack and five guys and they enable quick serve restaurants to maintain compliance with food safety regulations and perishables. Compliance mates using a WS IoT core for Lora Wan to connect, temperature sensors and humidity sensors in restaurant refrigeration units and in freezer trucks, an freezer units. These Laurel and device signals can penetrate the thick walls of these refrigeration units and they can last for years without battery replacement because you know they've got such a low power consumption, so this overall reduces the operating costs of the solution. The combination of the wirelessly connected temperature sensors and the real time access to the temperature data. Means that compliance makes customers can quickly identify opportunities, quickly identify problems, and prevents food safety mishaps before they occur. So I really wanted to thank compliance made for being part of our beta program and learning with us through this Laurel and journey. The primary goal of a WS IoT is to bring the power of the cloud connectivity to devices so that customers can reason on top of the data from that device, and it's desirable for them to do so without having to learn or manage any new infrastructure or without having to, you know, manage different cloud platforms for connectivity, an application development, our integration in particular with the KWS IoT core rules engine solves a lot of these problems. So when you register a device with a WS IoT core for Lora Wan, you'll also specify the name of a rule that would process the messages coming in from the device in real time. And again, you know this allows you to take advantage of that entire awos ecosystem. Our rules engine can transform the messages based on the expressions you define and will route them to other WS services. For example, you know reading from a temperature or vibration sensor could be tracked in a Dynamo DB table, but an abnormal reading that exceeds a value could trigger a notification using Amazon Simple Notification service. So one thing to note is that your payload sent by Laurel and devices are encoded due to the need to optimize. The bandwidth used by these devices, so as you set up your rules, you can also include a decoder step using a Lambda function and then wrote the decoded message to downstream AWS services. So I'm going to pass it over to Karthik who's going to talk a little bit more about the ecosystem that we've built around this Thanks alot, Karthik, thank you. Michael Soda company. Our launch for a WS IoT core for Lora Wan. A WS has worked with the ecosystem to qualify a variety of different hardware options for customers to choose from for their Lorawan deployment. So the AWS Device Qualification program is designed to help customers find the right hardware that's compatible with AWS Services. It involves hardware partners integrating required a WS or other compatible capabilities into their hardware and go through rigorous testing by both a WSM the partner to ensure a robust and secure implementation that customers can have confidence will work with a WS services the hardware once qualified as listed in the AWS Device Catalog where customers can filter, browse and find the most appropriate hardware. For that use case where pleased to announce that for a WS IoT core for Lora Wan, a WS has qualified 12 Lorawan Gateway's from five partners, Multitech Curling Bro an. And layered there are many choices for gateways ranging from low-cost indoor gateways running microcontrollers to robust outdoor gateways with cavity filters designed to work in harsh environments, qualified gateways and starter kits, or pre tested to make sure that they integrate the basic station software an include step by step guide by the manufacturer on how to connect the gateway to AW Sitecore for Lora Wan Awos will continue to work with additional hardware partners to offer increased selection. In addition to the Gateways, a WS is also pleased to announce the availability of four starter kits, so these kits include both the gateway and the sensor in the box, but they also include simple step by step instructions on how to connect that sensor and the gateway to the service, and also they provide simple instructions on using downstream AWS services, such as the simple notification service to send a text message with the sensor data received or render the data in a cloud dashboard using a WS quick site. These kits are available for purchase today and cost around $300 and offer customers the fastest, simplest method to learn how to use the new service and create a simple application using a WS cloud services. We're also pleased to share that we've collaborated with tensor IoT and Semtech to offer two solutions starter kits. Now these kids are different than the developer kits I just spoke about in that they contain complete set of sensors required to build a proof of concept based on our AWSIOT core for Lora Wan solution, Starter kits provide a cloud hosted dashboard which is built on top of a WS IoT core. The first gets a smart building kit Anet include sensors like temperature. Humidity leak detection desk in room occupancy and people tracking it also includes Lorawan gateways and a Wi-Fi hotspot so you can get started with everything you need right out of the box. The second kit is focused on asset tracking and it includes an outdoor long range Lorawan gateway combined with six industrial GPS trackers which allows customers to be able to deploy these assets and quickly view them on a cloud dashboard. Rendered in a map, these kits are available today and they are available from Mouser, Digikey as well as Amazon.com. Customers can easily customize their application using the source code, or engage with tensor iot's consulting services. Let's now take a quick look at an example deployment. Here we have quest who allows property managers to offer smart home solutions to their tenants, thereby increasing building security as well as efficiency. Each property is equipped with a single Lorawan gateway to enable connectivity for all wireless devices installed on the property. Ahw Sitecore for Lora Wan has enabled quacks to connect their smart thermostats and door locks, thus allowing them to focus on improving customer experience. The solution enables property managers to provide ease of use for tenants while lowering operating costs for owners. To try out a WS IoT core for Lora Wan, you can purchase a qualified starter kit in the partner device catalog. An log into your management console and immediately get started. You'll also find sample Lora Wan Solutions from our partners and solution architects within the AWS GitHub repository. So finally we spoke previously about the many modes to connect blur when devices from public and private networks, in addition to a WS own native service which Michael mentioned. We're also pleased to announce that Abss partnered with leading at LNS. Vendors who are on a WS specifically activity and things industries to make it easy to connect devices using their LNS TWS IoT core. For examples, there's customers who may be in geographic areas and not want to deploy and manage their own gateways and prefer to use a public network. In this case they can easily connect to those networks if they use activity or TTN and use the cloud formation templates available from these partners to then connect from there L and S2AW SIOT core. In addition there's some customers who may want to choose to deploy an LNS on Prem. An AWS has worked with activity to develop a connector to a WS Greengrass which allows customers such as mining or oil and gas to be able to process local sensor data at the edge and upload to the cloud. When connectivity comes available. So this concludes our presentation. We hope you have enjoyed learning about how to use a WS to deploy your next Lorawan project. Thank you and have a great day. Hello everyone, my name is Derek Wallace and I'm the vice president of marketing. Put the lower alliance and it is my pleasure today to talk to you about the Lore Alliance member companies that we're going to recognize where their contributions to our lower went for good campaign. Now the lower one for Good Campaign is a campaign that we created an ran earlier this year and support of the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals. This program was adopted by the United Nation members in 2015 and it's part of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, and it provides a road map for more sustainable planet now and for years to come. The Lore Alliance very much believes in Ann wants to support this program, and so that's why we created this. Are lower one for good campaign. And today as I said, we're going to recognize four of our members that you see here and their submissions for four of the categories of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals and going from left to right, we have zero hunger by a mile site. Good health and well being by caravan. Clean water and sanitation by carelink. And sustainable cities and communities by multi tech. Now the graphics that you see here at the top and for the four categories. Those are from the United Nations themselves. And if you'd like to learn more information about the this program, I encourage you to visit the United Nations website. But for now, we're just going to go ahead an introduce the companies that we are recognizing this year. So to start off, we're recognizing member Company Mile Site or UN Sustainability goal number 20. Hunger and Today Mile site is being represented by Jessica Yao. Jessica is a manager of brand marketing from outside and before jumping into the IoT industry. Her background wasn't sales strategy, global channel management and sales, team management and the boy chemistry. Jessica is fueled by her passion for learning technology and considers herself before ever student. Jessica over to you. Hello everyone, this is Jessica Yao from outside marketing Department. Today I'd like to share with you a real story that happened in Australia. In Australia, is a country on the brink of a world crisis and is struggling with a massive massive labor shortage. So funny is still the biggest usage of Australia's water supply. Nearly 70% half of Australia's agriculture profits comes from irrigated farming, so this has lead to more efficient irrigation schemes and in our customers farmland, electricity cost and funeral costs. Our relative high and machine to machine connectivity has always been an issue for the rural areas, so our customer is looking for a new solution to reduce the weight of water cost, reduced labor costs, and improved efficiency. So to 1st technology, jump to our mind is Lola, so we take use of Lola one enabled sensors. Lola Wayne enabled controllers and Gateway to build up this automation monitoring system. Here is the top typographic diagram. The traditional submersible fuel level sensor was integrated in the lower one based seasonal system. This system can works as a sensor for so young monster for the temperature and humidity. And also works as a actuator on a valve to regulate the drip irrigation. So the lowering enabled sensors in the field communicates to the remote monitoring center through the mouth site Lola 1 Gateway. Once the gateway receives data from the irrigation nodes, is passed to chops back the network server through the cellular network and then forwarded by MQTT to the AWS IoT platform where the monitoring center. Is hosted for farmer access by both web and mobile apps. The lower one network is dynamically designed so when change happens in the network, sensor nodes are able to reorganize by themselves and water level sensors are diploid into base are diploid into water supply channels. Sensors send water level data to remote monitoring center. Then according to the pre configuration on the cloud the efficient and effective word control is provided through the wireless communication between the sensors. And remote center. Any you know finalize this project becomes part of Australians government smart irrigation for profit phase two and we are trying to use of the roller one based automation system in layout and working with Lola one sensors to work out the best time to irrigate and in this project we can see the primary economic analysis shows the smart irrigation automation control. Has positive economic benefits across a range of different water and label price or scenarios in different applications and water savings were biggest driver for the war. Biggest driver and biggest purpose for our customer to introduce the loan based automation system for the economic benefits accounting for 74% share of the total benefits. And you know, sometimes we think automation plays a very big role in bed, and in this case our customer. They are able to get the full automation and to control their irrigation around world and getting feedback from sensors and knowing exactly what's going on their farm lands and get as much information as possible. And to make the best decision on their day by day business. And you know, during the Millennium Draught Australian government release a water crime water. Restrictions you know which resulted in the cotton production quote ate meat production, haft and rice farming stopped almost entirely so the lower technology can be applied to the smart agriculture to reduce water waste and in improved productivity and finally eliminate hunger. So I think that's a wonderful and perfect technology that we can apply Lola one into the smart agriculture into the smart. Watering system, so that's what I want to share with your guys today. Thanks very much for joining with me. Thank you Jessica. And now the next company that we're going to recognize is member company Care Band or UN sustainability goal. #3 good health and well being. And today caravan is being represented by Adam Sobel, CEO and founder of Care, Matt. Adam is driven by making people's lives easier, healthier, and more sustainable through emerging technologies and machine learning. He is currently, as I said, the founder and CEO of Care Band Aid, Location based Health and Safety. Wearable solution for people living with dementia. Adam over to you. Hi, my name is Adam Sobel and I'm the founder and CEO of Care Band. I'm excited to be here to share how Care Band is improving the health and safety for people living with dementia. Today we are witnessing a dramatic change in the world's population due to the baby boomer generation. More people are reaching 65 years and older, all at the same time. This transition of demographics is putting a huge strain on the care economy and on our government. Today there is about 600 million people that are 65 years and older, yet by 2050 that number is expected to triple to nearly 2 billion. Moreover, people are having fewer children meeting less caregivers as that population continues to grow. If we look specifically at dementia though, there's about 50 million people today, and that number will also triple to about 150 million people in 2050. Scarier than that though, in the US1 in three of us will develop dementia. Caribbean is a patent pending wearable solution that keeps people living with dementia safe and healthy as well as provides Peace of Mind to caregivers and family members. Care Band offers a whole host of features on the safety side. It offers real time indoor location to know what room someone's in and potentially where within that room they are so we can save someone's in their bathroom or their bedroom or their kitchen and for how long they've been in that room. Additionally, when somebody walks over a geofence or perimeters such as exiting a door. We can send an immediate alert to a caregiver, triggering outdoor location tracking in order to keep them safe and and get them back into safety. There's also a sensor on the bottom of the device to know if somebody is wearing the device or not. This can be important in terms of understanding what's actually happening in the home of that individual. On the health side, care bans focused on understanding early changes in condition and monitoring nuro psychiatric symptoms of dementia. These include agitation and depression and apathy, and other symptoms that are exposed by people with dementia. We're also able to measure, measure, social engagement. This is around the frequency in the duration of those social engaged socialization and Contacts with other residents and staff and family members. Using all this data, reports can be generated to give families more understanding of what their loved ones are doing in facilities. It can also help the facilities to catch changes early. They could be indicative of urinary track infections or falls. Lora Wan is the base of our system. It powers the entire system and takes out the barriers of our connectivity in complexity for our customers. Many seniors at living at home today as well as senior living facilities still don't have Wi-Fi. With Lora Wan, the system can operate indoors and outdoors without having that Wi-Fi infrastructure. It can also operate in transition between private and public networks, which can be very valuable as the person is getting farther away from that facility. The system is very easy to install and doesn't require much support from it. Together, this provides an end to end solution that combines a robust device with agnostic connectivity and a serverless infrastructure. In, companies are starting to take note of this innovative solution. It's clear that there's a massive need to use low power wearable technology to keep people safe and healthy. Since launching in 2016, Caravan has been working to do just that and is starting to make an impact. Today we've deployed to five facilities, both assisted living and nursing home facilities. We've kept 200 people safe and we have 4 government funded research studies. We're excited to continue our mission of keeping people living with dementia safe and healthy. We're actively looking for system integrators, value added resellers and network operators to join the caravan family in the USEU and in Australia. Our suite of solutions can be found at our website at caravan.co and I'm excited to talk with you about how we could support you and work together to help keep people safe and healthy. Thank you. Thank you very much, Adam and now the next company that we're going to represent his member company Carelink or UN sustainability goal #6 Clean Water and Sanitation and today carelink is being represented by Jeremy. They're communication team lead at carelink. Jeremy graduated from the University of Britannia and Languages and International Management, and he comes with 12 years of experience in communications, public relations, ships and event management. Jeremy over to you. In early 2019, Canning Gas powered a pilot project for UNHCR, which is the I, the United Nation High Commissioner for Refugees. It is responsible of protecting refugees running away from local wars and fights. The purpose of this project was to improve their water management stem in refugee camps. To give you a bit of context and background. UNHCR is charged with providing water to million people worldwide, but is also in charge of water supply monitoring and building surveillance. At the moment, the best way to bring the water to the camp is tracking because it is fast and safe. But unfortunately is very is very expensive and hard to monitor. That's why. You wanna share responsible or rest charge to find a ground level solution. To answer this challenge, it has to be easy to deploy robust and solar powered. 22 sites have been chosen to welcome these POC one in Uganda, the other in Syria, but today I will. I will focus on our airfields in Uganda. For you to grasp this challenge and will give you some figures, there is approximatively 470,000 people on this comp. And each day around 6300 cubic cubic meter of water has been has been used. To give you a skate, it represent the population of fuel. The serve biggest city in France and Tuna. Half swimming or a big pool. That here were lower one comes into the game. The solution we wrote is that killing Gateway I've been diploid over the camp and gather the data from seven types of monitors and seven types of sensor that have been brought at the reservoir. There were there were monitoring the water level an the detect water leakage. All the sensor sends their package to the station and the wind station via Internet buckle, Internet, Ethernet or 4G directly to Green Citizens Server. Green Citizen is a French startup which partnered with UNHCR to develop dashboard. Found in units 40 units are to have a clear and right view on the assets. As you can see, the results where I where are hyper positive. Ranch later wash. Officer Wash is the is the program dedicated to water at the UNHCR found the technology mature and extremely cost effective. They were so happy with the solutions at the that they decided to extend the PRC 2 feedback solution. For example to manage the water quality West collection and even to a feedback on welcoming condition and the decided as well to extend it to other camps in Africa and in Asia. So to conclude, I would say that's a UNHCR named Lora Wan as a game changer technology for the monitoring in a refugee refugee camp. And we are very proud of it. Thank you very much. Jeremy an now for the last but certainly not least company that we're going to recognize stay and that's multi tech for UN sustainability goal. #11 sustainable Cities and communities. And today Multitech is being represented by Neil Carey, Regional sales director. Neil is an experienced sales professional focused on enabling the adoption of wireless communication technologies in the industrial IO T space. With a strong ethos, an ecosystem collaboration, and mutually beneficial working relationships. Now over to you. Hello, my name is Neil Kerry. I'm one of the regional sales directors within multi tech systems. Today I'm going to talk about the use case for good based around social housing and this is how Lorawan is enabling better outcomes within this space. So before I do that, I just like to draw your attention to a recent UN report that this report is projecting that 70% of the world's population within 30 years is going to be living in urban areas. Now with this mass migration of people. This is going to have some profound implications, and one of those implications is the need for social housing. So we believe there's a new era for public housing. There is a challenge and we faced that challenge, so I'm going to talk a little bit through what that challenges and some of the issues that have been reported currently. So within the UK there are registered providers. These are often known as social housing landlords. Well, they have to manage social housing. These providers are often responsible for managing 10s of thousands of properties and they have to ensure that the properties and the tenants are safe and well managed. So poor property conditions can introduce some serious problems, not just for the property but for the tenants and cells in their health and also managing this amount of properties. There is a constant need for refurbishment and this can run into many millions of pounds or euros or dollars. You know every year, so some of the common issues that are reported. Are below this is not a definitive list, but these are some of the more common issues, so fuel poverty, poor air quality, things around, black mold under and over, occupancy, non or late reporting of housing repairs and the overall deterioration of tenants well being so I'm not going to run through all of these but I'll just pick a couple just to give you a little bit more detail about what I'm referring to here. So fuel poverty this typically is in two categories. One of the categories is actually driven by the tenants themselves, so this is when they may be. Their financial circumstances have changed or their mental health, their state of health has changed and so they will not heat the property to an adequate level for a period of time and this has knock on consequences to their actual health and well being. One of the other areas is over or under occupancy. Typically the housing stock owners they rent their property based. On the size and the amount of bedrooms. So as an example of one bedroom property potentially can host up to four people. So you got the bedroom and the front room is often utilized as a second bedroom. Now if that property is massively over occupied then there are some potential serious health and safety consequences to that, so those are some of the areas that are being reported. So there is a challenge. We have accepted that challenge. With some of our ecosystem partners. So let me give you a breakdown of of how this how this actually looks. So from a from a goal, what is the goal? The goal here is to create a digital property management solution that gives real time data or near real time data to the housing providers. So that is critical to the well being of the tenants and the overall well being of the property. So how do we do this? So this is about strong ecosystem partner collaboration. That is helping to drive this digital transformation. In this instance it was around creating a Lorawan end to end solution, so this is set the sensor to the IoT network. So the gateway infrastructure and this is where we have a big influence here as multi tech to the application dashboard. So we link in the sensor to the application dashboard. So this was enabled and it was enabled. It was easy to deploy, it was sympathetic, it was unobtrusive and gave remote monitoring. Of four particular characteristics, and these were humidity, temperature, CO2, and movement. Now when I talk about sympathetic and unobtrusive, what do I mean when most people don't like to be, seeing that there being monitored, so we had to make sure that the senses the gateway placement were in keeping with the environment and was sympathetic to the environment and that was diploid. Now it's still at relatively early stages, but the signs are positive and these are some of the signs the positive signs, the insights that have come out. Of this particular Alora for good deployment, so the housing associations, the housing stock owners themselves have said that there actually I've got now a much more insight and they can target their approach to remedial property maintenance. So this means they can bring a property back up to its healthy state sooner, and on a more regular basis. And that has positive impacts, not just for for them as the housing stock owners but also the tenants are like. I've also now got enhanced budget management and their staff utilization is actually a lot more effective. Now, if they can utilize their staff more effectively and they got early insight into what needs to be done, then for organisations that our own many thousands of properties, often their budget for refurbishment runs into many millions of pounds or euros or dollars. So if they can save 1015%, that's not an exact insignificant amount to save. They've also found that the more vulnerable tenants are actually being more. I've been better catered for, So what do I mean around that? So if a vulnerable tenant is not answering, the phone is not answering their door often one of the next actions for the Housing Association, the social housing stock owners is that they would phone the next of kin. Now that's often quite an anxious time. You receive a call that one your relatives is not responding as they should be, or as expected. It's actually can be quite an anxious time, but if the housing. Store owners are actually seeing that the humidity, the temperature to see 02 the movement characteristics are in normal boundaries. Then maybe that call doesn't mean need to be made quite as early, so overall they're getting positive outcomes from that, but also one of the other areas is the data is visible, it's monitored and it's regulated. So there's actually a positive impact on that clarity of data for maybe some of the less scrupulous landlords and some of their activities that have been known. Previously, so we've accepted the challenge we believe we're on the path to creating this new era for public housing. So in summary, you can see here on the left is a tunnel, and those lights at the end of that tunnel. We believe there is light at the end of the tunnel for public housing. As I mentioned earlier, the housing demographics the landscape is changing, so the supporting associations and companies need to. Also real time Laurel and monitoring of this social housing and housing stock is here to stay. Now it will evolve. It will continue to enable positive outcomes. To the housing store. Owners and tenants alike, but I think one of the other areas that it's going to start to emerge and is already emerging is around assisted living. So what we're seeing, certainly UK is that population is is aging more people are entering into early signs of dementia. The mental health state is maybe not always what it should be, and typically when this cannot be catered for then these people would go into care homes. But being able to give them more independent life for longer. Been remotely monitored I think it's a positive aspect aspect of how lorawan has helped in this instance, so hopefully this gives you a reasonably good insight to the power of lorawan thanks.
