Hi all, I wondered if there was a known implementation of using LoRa for either emonTx (or emonPi) using LoRa modules to transmit sensor readings over longer distances. I’ve found a peppering of older posts relating to Lora over the past four years but involve v. specific situations or more complex/advanced LoRaWan projects.
I have a particular use case where our village would like to obtain and publish energy/solar data from multiple, remote community buildings within 300m radius. A powered emonTx + RFM95 combination would seem perfect for the job but checking if there was a working example of an elegant approach somewhere before i embark on this adventure (with inevitably less elegant code). I understand the emonTx RFM69 processes things differently and uses different libraries so not an obvious solution to switch out?
The receiving end seems more straightforward being a Lora receiver converting to MQTT or posting to emonCMS directly.
Grateful for any thoughts, ideas, misadventures shared. Ta
