Which platform can you recommend for a LoRa/LoRaWAN remote sensor node, which fulfills the following criteria?

  • Detects presence of people in 15-minute interval (e.g. with a RCWL-0516)
  • Reports the data also in 15-minute interval (alternatively 1x/day)
  • Battery life approx. 1 year: 10 x 5 cm top surface can accomodate a solar cell, but energy harvesting also okay. We were thinking of using TP4056 with 18650s.
  • Location (see elevation profile below): Sensor at the top of a hill (altitude ~400m) with
    • Option 1: Nearly line-of-sight to an urban location (antenna at ~10m above ground)
    • Option 2: Line-of-sight to an urban location (antenna at ~150m on the roof of a building)
  • Cost around 50 EUR/60 USD

Option 1 Option 2

    have you done any research? .... if yes, then what was the result? – jsotola Feb 16 '19 at 19:59
