This report was prepared by DEOS.AG and published on May 1, 2022. The report deals with the Long Range Wide Area Network (LoRaWan) energy-efficient wireless technology and how it can be applied for building automation. Key components of LoRaWan are examined from networking and device perspectives. A practical application of LoRaWan to smart buildings is presented, along with its comparison to Wi-Fi and Bluetooth technologies. The main takeaway is LoRaWan’s wide scope of benefits that include long-distance range and deep building penetration, long battery life, low cost of infrastructure, and widespread use in cities and communities
