What we’re doing to prepare for COVID-19

Coronavirus – What we’re doing to prepare

Given the current status of the Coronavirus pandemic, we would like to share some information on the measures we have put in place this week to ensure the long term reliability of Alliot as a distributor. We feel that our key function is to keep our warehouse operating, receiving stock and shipping out our customer orders, we have therefore taken the decision to physically isolate our warehouse operation team from the rest of the business and have enforced a remote working policy for all Alliot employees who are able to perform their roles outside of the office.

Our thinking is that the majority of our staff are trained to be able to work in the warehouse, should one of our existing warehouse team catch COVID-19 we may be forced to send the whole team home. In this instance, we would deep clean the area immediately and rotate our home working staff to cover these roles and maintain operation.

We would like to reassure our partners that there are no current stock issues and no current personnel issues. We are taking this bold and early step to mitigate the future risk to our staff, our business and our customers.

We maintain focused on providing the very best services and fast delivery times to support you and your business. The intentions of these measures are to:

  • Protect our employees from being put at risk of catching COVID-19
  • Provide continuity to ALL of our operations, protecting our customers from supply issues
  • To continue to provide you with an outstanding level of service

Like everyone else, we are currently in unchartered territory, but as part of ProVu holdings, we are well accustomed to utilising the technologies available and are in a strong positionto adapt to this work methodology. Our move to send everyone home to work has been in place for two days and has gone extremely well with no disruption to our operations.

We will keep you updated with further changes as and when we have more information.

Thank you for your continued support.

The Alliot Team.

Can IoT healthcare devices help in a pandemic?

As the NHS battle to save thousands of lives across the country, we’re looking to how technology could help. Could IoT healthcare devices be the future of patient care? This blog post looks at some of the LoRaWAN devices available, and how they could benefit the NHS.

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic we’ve seen technology take centre stage as we try to continue life as normal. From online PE lessons for kids who aren’t at school, to Zoom conversations with family members; we’re all using the internet more than ever.

LoRaWAN sensors don’t use wifi (so you can save your bandwidth for your video calls and streaming). They use a completely different network. They also use very little data, and very little power. These devices are also relatively affordable.

iot healthcare lorawan medical devices

So how could we use them to develop an IoT healthcare strategy to help the NHS?

1. Emergency buttons for the elderly and vulnerable

COVID-19 has very serious health implications for over 70s and those with existing health conditions. Many of our most vulnerable members of society have been asked to self-isolate for up to 12 weeks.

But how do we check on them? What if they’re unable to get to a phone? Providing those at home with an emergency button that they could push if they needed urgent care could potentially save lives. LoRaWAN technology means that these devices could have a battery life of up to 5 years (based on transmitting data every hour).

2. Asset tracking for medical equipment

One of the biggest issues with the COVID-19 crisis has been lack of ventilators. Manufacturers around the world are scrambling together to produce enough ventilators and respirators to enable our doctors and nurses to care for their patients.

Ventilation equipment is very expensive (£120 per mask and £4,000 per machine, according to 2016 figures from Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust). Keeping track of all of these machines using GPS would allow the NHS to find out whether there are unused ventilators available across the country. LoRaWAN asset trackers could also be used to alert staff when a ventilator machine is removed from hospital premises.

3. Parking sensors for ambulance bays

Parking sensors have been developed for smart cities. The sensors detect whether or not a parking space is occupied.

The same technology could be used in an IoT healthcare setting by identifying empty ambulance bays. You could then direct ambulances to the nearest available bay. This could have a huge impact on time-critical emergencies, helping to save lives.

4. Desk sensors adapted for hospital beds

Lack of available beds is an ongoing issue for the NHS. During the COVID-19 pandemic we’ve seen thousands of extra beds provided in emergency hospitals. Having a better picture of where beds are available could help many hospital departments.

Desk sensors have been developed to monitor desk occupancy in a commercial environment. They measure motion, temperature, light and humidity. But they also have a thermopile sensor that can detect body heat. Perfect for patients who aren’t able to move around.

5. Temperature sensors for medical storage

Some medications need to be stored at specific temperatures. Installing temperature sensors in fridges and freezers can alert staff to any changes in temperature. If a fridge door is left open accidentally, an alert will be triggered when the inside of the fridge goes outside the normal temperature range. This could prevent vital supplies from being spoiled, and ensure medication is kept under the right conditions.

There are hundreds of ways that technology can be used for IoT healthcare applications. LoRaWAN technology is so versatile thanks to it’s long battery life, affordability and low data usage. If you’d like more information on how we could help you to develop IoT healthcare solutions, get in touch with our technical team.

Cyber Essentials Certification ✔

We’re delighted to have received the Government-backed Cyber Essentials certification. Illustrating our compliance with the cyber security standard.

What is the Cyber Essentials Accreditation?

Cyber Essentials is a UK government led scheme that was originally launched in 2014. Designed as an assessment strategy, the Cyber Essentials standard confirms our systems comply with essential cyber security controls.

What does Cyber Essentials Cover?

The scheme covers five control categories which cover the most prominent cyber risks organisations face. These include:

  • Firewall Security: Acting as a buffer, firewalls allow incoming internet traffic to be analysed to assess whether or not it should be allowed on to your network.
  • Secure Configuration: Devices and software should be securely configured to minimise the risk of unauthorised access to data. All devices and accounts should always be password protected. We use two-factor authentication where applicable.
  • User Access Control: Access to data should be controlled – accounts with administrative privileges should only be used to perform administrative tasks.
  • Malware protection: Certified companies are required to demonstrate that they have a robust anti-malware solution in place. This helps to prevent servers and end-user devices from being infected by malicious software.
  • Keeping up to date: Also known as ‘patching’. In order to maintain optimum levels of cyber security it is important for companies to ensure all devices, operating systems and software are kept up to date at all times.

We take our data security very seriously, our recent certification offers assurance for this. To discuss your IoT projects and any upcoming tenders, please contact our team on +44 (0)1484 599544 or email contact@alliot.co.uk.

Bosch LoRaWAN Smart Parking Sensor

smart parking sensor

Bosch’s LoRaWAN Smart Parking Sensor has been designed to detect and report parking space occupancy with incredible accuracy and high reliability. Carry on reading below for the what, how, why and when (literally) of this game changing product.

What is smart parking?

Smart parking is the future. Are you tired of searching endlessly for a parking space before work? Would you love to know where the spaces are when you arrive? Smart parking can facilitate this. Smart parking usually involves installing embedded devices in parking spots to determine whether the bays are free or not. Information is then collected via real-time data collection and transmitted to smart parking apps or websites, for you to communicate information to end users.

What is a Bosch Smart Parking Sensor?

Developed as a smart parking sensor to detect and report parking space occupancy with the highest reliability and accuracy. The Bosch parking sensor can be used, not to just check if there is a someone parked in your favoured shady spot, but to monitor the use of the car park to better understand the ebb and flow of traffic to your site.

With simple and fast deployment, the Bosch parking sensor is a perfect solution to add to any smart city project, helping to alleviate time spent searching for parking spaces and even reduce traffic jams.

How it works

I could get into the technical aspects but here’s the simple version:

The sensor uses radar and a magnetometer to know whether there is a car parked above it. It checks for a state change every 35 seconds (depending on configuration) then if the state has changed it send a message to the LoRaWAN network. The LoRaWAN network can then send information about whether the parking space is occupied or not to an application. This application can let drivers know where the empty parking spaces are.

It’s adaptive algorithm means that the sensor is super reliable. If you would like to see the inner workings of the sensor, you can find them in the datasheet and user guide.

We are genuinely impressed with how the Bosch sensor looks, let alone how it actually works. It’s a sleek design that, placed right, would not look out of place on a landing bay of the Starship Enterprise.

‘Boldly parking like no one has parked before.’

Why do I need it?

Why do you not! Bring your car park into the future of parking analytics. Monitor traffic in and out of car parks, tie into a smart city network for better and safer parking.

  • Up to 5 years battery life
  • Self-learning calibration
  • Real-time reporting of parking state changes (typically < 35 seconds)
  • Easy and fast installation
  • Low maintenance
  • Weatherproof and dust resistant (IP67 rated)

Where can I buy them?

Right here! All of our products are available to customers throughout Europe.

We’re currently the only distributor of Bosch Smart Parking Sensors in the UK. We’re looking forward to easier parking in our city centres! Get in touch to find out how smart parking sensors can bring more customers to your car park!

Netvox Payload Decoder for The Things Network

I’ve published an example payload decoder for Netvox sensors using The Things Network. It’ll also work with Chirpstack with some simple modifications.

What is a payload decoder?

A bit of background, LoRaWAN is an open protocol that defines communication between low powered sensor devices and the Internet. It is great but it does not define data payload formats. It’s much like HTTP, it defines a mechanism for communication but not what that communication is.

The current state of play is that the various sensor manufacturers devise their own payload formats for data sent from or to their sensors. There are some efforts to define standards (such as Cayenne LPP) but none are widespread. The difficulty is that there are so many different types of sensors that designing a protocol to fit inside a few Bytes and yet cover all eventualities isn’t simple.

So at the moment when you add a sensor to a LoRaWAN network, you need to translate the payload into something useful.

Netvox Payload Decoder in The Things Network

If you want to get started with Netvox sensors then you can start off with this Netvox payload decoder Javascript code, it’ll load straight into The Things Network.

I will keep adding more sensors to it as time goes on.

LoRaWAN Security

This week, a security company called IOActive published a white paper on security vulnerabilities in LoRaWAN. You can read it here. I was also in the audience at a talk they gave during the Things Conference 2020 in Amsterdam last week on the same subject of security in LoRaWAN.

This report has caused a slight stir in the LoRaWAN community, to that end the LoRa-Alliance published a blog post on security. You can read this here.

I’ve read both and having been involved in security conscious areas of computing for many years (Voice-over-IP before IoT/LPWAN), there’s nothing in either report that I can’t agree with in some way. I do feel the IOActive report is a little bit sensationalist but hey, they’re a business trying to get their name out there so I can let them off. Plus, everything they talk about I have seen before in the VoIP world so it’s not new to me. Here’s my own thoughts on this subject.

There’s really two aspects to the report, the first is that LoRaWAN version 1.0 AppKeys are brute forceable. This is true, any encrypted or hashed password is brute forceable given enough time and resource. This information is neither new or surprising. The problem here is that it’s not that hard to do in a lot of cases, often due to poor management of these keys. LoRaWAN 1.1 adds extra security to mitigate this risk, I wont go into details here, the spec is published by the LoRa-Alliance if you want to read it plus these reports cover it too.

The other aspect the reports deal with are implementation issues and human factors. These are frequently the cause of cyber security problems in all areas, certainly it is the case in the Voice-over-IP world as well as IoT.

With respect to LoRaWAN, the issue is one of management of the AppKeys. Here’s a run down of the problems. I have seen each and every one of these problems in the real world several times!

  • Keys sent and stored in a non-secure fashion. I’ve seen both manufacturers and end user emailing spreadsheets or text files containing AppKeys in plain text. Then keeping hold of these files on their computer in case they need to refer to them later on. This is bad. If someone ever got hold of these files then they have a copy of the keys. Keys should be treated in the same way as passwords (although many people are terrible at that too). There’s an old saying, if you wouldn’t write something on the back of a postcard and drop it into a post box, then don’t send it in an email, there’s no way of knowing who might see that email.
  • Poor quality, non-random or non-unique keys. The most common one is where devices all share the same AppKeys, either from the manufacturer with little consideration given to changing them or installers being lazy and provisioning the same AppKey to all devices because it’s quicker. Also, non-random keys such as the DevEUI repeated twice, 32 zeros, “1234” repeated etc… These are all similar to using “password123” for a login password, they are easily guessable and not secure.
  • Hard-coded keys which can’t be changed. This one is down to manufacturers of devices. Would you sign up to a social media website and post your photos on it if they forced you to use a set password with no way of changing it (especially if they’d emailed it to you in plain text)? Hopefully the answer is no.
  • Insecure out-of-band management. Some devices are configurable over Bluetooth or NFC using a mobile app. It seems in some cases, there’s no security on this. You can download the manufacturer’s free app and connect to a device if you are close enough to it, then read the AppKey from it. Personally I think this is a limited attack vector, it requires the attacker to be physically close to the device. Having said that, if you’ve also used the same AppKey on all your devices, now your entire system is compromised because someone got hold of a single sensor.

So what should you do? Should you rip out all your LoRaWAN systems and hide in a cupboard for the rest of the year? Absolutely not, in fact mitigating these risks is not very hard. I can confidently say that I’ve been implementing these measures and instilling secure ways of handling LoRaWAN keys in all our staff for a long time. What this means for us and what I would encourage anyone reading this to do is as follows.

  • Use unique AppKeys on each and every device you install. Don’t even use common ones for testing, it’s just a bad habit to get in to. This website can be used to generate random 128bit keys for use as AppKeys. When we provision devices for customers, we always use this or similar tools to generate unique keys and securely load them onto the devices.
  • Keep your keys safe. Don’t email them, an Excel spreadsheet with a password applied is still pretty poor security. We provide a securely encrypted portal to allow our customers to submit keys to us (or for us to send keys to our customers). This software generates a single-use obscure link, without the link it’s not easily possible to decrypt the keys even if someone had access to the server the portal is hosted on. We can also provide a password as an extra layer of security which is sent separately to the link itself. We use open source software called PrivateBin to do this. We also never store keys and I regularly train staff on the virtues of key security.
  • Keep your infrastructure secure. Your LoRaWAN Network Server has copies of all your keys stored on it. Make sure this is secure, use secure random passwords to log in to it. Make sure any other access to the server (e.g. ssh access) is secure. I wont go into details here, if you’d like to talk about this then feel free to get in touch.
  • Communicate. If you see someone doing something you feel is bad practise, say so. If you deal with us and we advice you that you are doing something we feel can be improved, don’t take it personally, we are trying to help. Similarly, we are very open to discussion and suggestions you might have for us. We keep in touch with our suppliers and manufacturers to advise and take advice on security. We also actively lobby manufacturers of devices to improve security and keep developing firmware to implement new standards.

I encourage the LoRaWAN community to openly discuss these issues so they can be debated in an organised manner. I have seen the IOActive report being dismissed as FUD, this is counterproductive, there are real issues to address, defensiveness and an unwillingness to debate are not helpful in my opinion (although it’s a reaction I have encountered many times in the technical/computing industry). I am always happy for anyone to talk to me about an issue they feel they have found and I am always willing to assist in talking to device manufacturers about fixing problems and improving security in an open and honest fashion.

Best LoRaWAN Sensors for 2020

After last week’s visit to The Things Conference in Amsterdam, our technical team gave us a little run down of the “ones to watch” for 2020. We talked about the best LoRaWAN sensors on show at the conference, and how they might change our lives in the not-too-distant future!

Smart Parking Sensors

The latest addition to the smart city scene is smart parking sensors. We’re currently testing a product made by Bosch. It works using radar and a magnetometer to detect whether or not there’s a car above it. It then reports the parking space status as “available” or “occupied” using LoRaWAN technology. The best bit for car park operators? The battery lasts for up to 5 years, so minimal maintenance!

We envisage the best use of this LoRaWAN sensor will be guided parking systems. We all know how frustrating it is when you’re looking for a space. In busy city centres, you can spend up to 20 minutes searching for a place to park. That’s 20 minutes of clogging up the traffic and the air with your engine running. This sensor could combine with a lighting system to highlight available spaces, or direct you to a multi-storey level where there are spaces. It could also be used to highlight available eCharging stations for electric cars.

People were impressed by the small size and overall design of this product when we displayed it in the flesh in Amsterdam. We have these available now.

Waste Monitoring

We’ve been talking to Tekelek about their waste bin sensor. We think it’s great for a range of applications; from waste management companies to local councils, and even charity collection bins.

The LoRaWAN sensor can be positioned inside the bin and uses ultrasound to measure the level of waste. This allows you to optimise waste collections, adding or removing collections when you need them. This type of LoRaWAN sensor is already being trialled in the Netherlands and promises to cut costs and improve accountability for hazardous waste.

This particular sensor boasts a battery life of up to 14 years, thanks to LoRaWAN technology. It also has a communication range of up to 15km to the nearest gateway. We think this is one of the best LoRaWAN sensors for waste management and recycling.

Air Quality Monitoring

There are a wide range of air quality monitoring sensors on the market. Which is the best LoRaWAN sensor for air quality depends on what you want to measure:

  • CO2. We already offer a carbon dioxide monitor that also measures temperature and humidity. Measuring carbon dioxide can give you an idea of how well your ventilation systems are working. Research suggests that increased CO2 levels in the workplace can decrease productivity!
  • Carbon monoxide. Carbon monoxide can be toxic in high concentrations. Many homes and commercial buildings have carbon monoxide monitors surrounding equipment such as boilers or heating equipment. This is a safety precaution, but using LoRaWAN CO sensors can help your systems to alert you more quickly to changes in carbon monoxide levels.
  • VOCs. VOC stands for volatile organic compound. It’s a measure of potentially harmful substances in the air, and a fairly standard method of defining air quality.
  • Particulate matter. This is a useful way of measuring pollution levels in an outdoor environment. Particles from car exhausts, smoke and other sources can reduce the quality of the air we breathe.

At The Things Conference there were a few different manufacturers who supply different air quality monitors. We’re looking to collaborate with some of them over the coming months to supply sensors to our European client base.

We loved the concept of adding air quality sensors to street lighting; another tool for smart cities of the future. They can also be a great method for monitoring and improving air quality in workplaces, hospitals and schools.

LoRaWAN People Counting Sensor

Knowing how many people are visiting your premises or passing by the front can be really helpful. You can actively measure your busiest times and ensure that staffing levels are adapted accordingly. You can measure footfall in specific areas accurately and tailor your marketing strategies. There are all sorts of possibilities for commercial applications.

We liked the idea of being able to measure the number of people without using cameras. And, like all LoRaWAN sensors, we love the long battery life. We liked the look of the PCR2, made by Swiss company Parametric. They have a range of indoor and outdoor sensors that we’re launching now.

Conference Highlights

We had a great time at last week’s conference and we’re really excited about the future of LoRaWAN technology. We particularly enjoyed a presentation by Edge Impulse, which involved Johan Stokking (CTO The Things Industries) dressing up as a sheep:

Not only was it an engaging presentation, the concept of a programmable activity tracker that can “learn” different activities and transmit data via LoRaWAN is pretty amazing! We look forward to seeing it at work in the world of smart agriculture – just hope we don’t catch our sheep drinking beer!

If you met us at The Things Conference 2020, we’d love to hear from you again. Get in touch to find out more about the products we have on offer and our in-house test methods.

LoRaWAN GPS: Technology Options

We stock a range of LoRaWAN GPS asset tracking sensors including Abeeway’s Micro Tracker (plus their industrial version) . Each of them list a variety of tracking technologies and how they can be used. But was do these different types of location monitoring actually mean? And which one should you be using? Here’s a list of the different types of geolocation technologies.

Here’s an overview of the different geolocation technologies available for LoRaWAN asset trackers:

1. GPS

The same technology as your sat-nav in your car or your smart phone uses. It relies on receiving signals from multiple satellites in orbit around the planet.

Location accuracy can be as good as a couple of metres. But this depends on getting signal from a lot of satellites. 10m accuracy is the generally accepted level for standard GPS.

GPS can be quite “power hungry”. Even though GPS is a “receive only” system, it uses more power because it takes a long time (minutes rather than seconds or even milliseconds) to lock on to multiple satellites.

It’s free to use and there is global coverage.

GPS works best outside. If you are inside a building it sometimes works near a window, but GPS is generally recommended for tracking over long distances; for example monitoring fleet vehicles or keeping track of a runaway pet.

2. LP-GPS (low power GPS)

This is a proprietary technology developed by Abeeway, specifically for their micro tracker. It requires the use of Abeeway’s own software platform.

Most of the location processing is done on a server instead of the device itself. This means that time, CPU usage and battery power is saved. I can’t comment on the operation of this at the moment as I am yet to give it a try.

3. Wifi Sniffing

Technically this isn’t LoRaWAN GPS. But it does provide pretty accurate device locations using surrounding wifi networks.

Because there are wifi networks literally all over the place these days, you are usually within range of several of them anywhere (except really remote or rural areas). Companies such as Google or Apple collect the IDs and locations of wifi networks and store them anonymously.

Your smart phone makes use of this data to determine it’s own location quicker than waiting for a GPS lock. Your smart phone also collects this data and sends it back to the databases of the likes of Apple and Google. I find this technology really interesting and yet a bit scary at the same time.

The Abeeway tracker makes use of this technology as a way of getting a pretty accurate location by simply “sniffing” for wifi networks in range. The tracker sends the IDs of nearby wifi networks to the LoRaWAN Network Server. It is then up to you to convert this into a normal location (latitude & longitude) on your own application. The raw data looks like this:

wifi sniffer data vs lorawan gps

That’s a list of wifi bssids and rssis my tracker has sniffed. It doesn’t connect to any wifi network, it simply scans for their IDs. Any wifi network broadcasts these ID numbers (along with the SSID you more commonly see in a list of networks to connect to on your computer). The RSSI numbers are the signal strengths for each network which can optionally be used to get a more accurate location .

To do something useful with this information you need to convert that raw data into a location. Google provide an API to their mapping system called GeoLocate, it does many things but one of them is converting these wifi networks into a real location just like you’d get from GPS – a latitude and longitude.

‘True’ LoRaWAN GPS

The Abeeway Micro Tracker is a pocket sized geolocation device that supports multiple location technologies. It’s a small battery powered unit that can either be put in your pocket, attached to a key-ring or put inside something else.

This LoRaWAN GPS tracker has an internal rechargeable battery which gives a couple of weeks of life depending on how you are using it. It is recharged by connecting a micro-USB cable. It has a single button on the front of it which is used to switch the device into different modes or trigger a geolocation event.

A simpler alternative

At Alliot Technologies, we also stock a simpler, more affordable asset tracker for indoor use. This one is manufactured by Netvox (Netvox 718MA) and relies on Received Signal Strength Ratio (RSSI) and Signal to Noise Ratio (SNR). It basically alerts your LoRaWAN network when the device leaves the network. Perfect for making sure your equipment stays on your business premises, but not really a ‘true’ asset tracker.

If you’d like information or advice on choosing the right LoRaWAN GPS trackers for your IoT project, get in touch with our technical team. We’re passionate about IoT products and how they can create help your business run more smoothly!
