Netmore Group, a leading international LoRaWAN network operator, has partnered with Finnish real estate company Stena Fastigheter to implement LoRaWAN technology across Stena’s properties in Stockholm, Malmö, and Gothenburg. This initiative aims to enhance energy efficiency and modernize Stena’s real estate operations by deploying Netmore’s LoRaWAN connectivity. Up to 42,900 meters and sensors will be installed for sub-metering, temperature, and humidity monitoring, improving energy management and living conditions.

Eric Collinder, Country Manager Nordics at Netmore Group, emphasized LoRaWAN’s importance for property owners, expressing satisfaction with Stena Fastigheter’s choice. Peter Mikulic, Head of Digital Transformation at Stena Fastigheter, highlighted the benefits of continuous consumption monitoring and reducing excess use. The partnership also enables future applications like water leak detection, HVAC monitoring, waste management, smoke detection, and radon measurement. Netmore’s solution ensures flexible deployment, comprehensive coverage, and up to 15 years of sensor battery life, making it a future-proof choice for smart property management.

Netmore Group and Stena Fastigheter Collaborate to Connect 27,000 Apartments with LoRaWAN Technology

Netmore Group, a leading international LoRaWAN network operator, has entered into a agreement with Stena Fastigheter, a Swedish real estate company to implement LoRaWAN technology across Stena’s property portfolio.

This initiative aims to improve Stena’s real estate operations ‘ energy efficiency and modern capabilities.

Project scope and implementation

The project involves providing Netmore’s LoRaWAN connectivity to apartments across Stockholm, Malmö, and Gothenburg. The implementation includes the installation of a large number of LoRaWAN gateways to support Stena’s rollout of submetering ( IMD) and temperature/humidity sensors, including up to approximately 42, 900 meters and sensors.

First attention was put on improving energy efficiency and living conditions.

The use of technology for energy optimization is a crucial component of the partnership. The main applications include sub-metering made possible by the use of temperature and humidity sensors as well as water meters, which are anticipated to improve Stena’s properties ‘ energy management. Also, this scientific integration is anticipated to enhance the quality of living for residents, offering a more secure and lasting living environment.

We are then in a phase where LoRaWAN becomes the preferred method of access technology for property owners, according to Eric Collinder, Country Manager Nordics at Netmore Group. We are particularly pleased to have Stena Fastigheter, a leading property company in the Nordics, as our customer. They are a perfect example of this by choosing Netmore LoRaWAN as their main component when constructing their portfolio. Offering connectivity for solutions of this size is in line with our corporate objectives and reflects our proven knowledge of the property industry.

Peter Mikulic, Head of Digital Transformation at Stena Fastigheter, expressed,” By equipping our properties with meters and sensors, we can constantly coincide with the consumption patterns of the buildings and the needs of our tenants, while ensuring that any excess consumption is minimized. We made our choice after evaluating the numerous access technologies and connectivity providers thoroughly. With the help of Netmore’s connectivity, we can continue to adhere to the high standards of innovation and climate consideration that our tenants have come to expect from us.

Prospective for future modern integration

The partnership and LoRaWAN technology, which has its initial focus on energy optimization, even allow for the development and use of more modern applications in real estate management in the future, demonstrating the breadth of Netmore’s LoRaWAN solutions.

Possible applications include:

  • Water Leak Detection: Sensors to identify and alert about water leaks, preventing damage and conserving water.
  • HVAC System Monitoring: Advanced monitoring and control of heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems for efficient energy use and resident comfort.
  • Waste Management Optimization: Effective waste collection strategies to reduce economic impact and resource use.
  • Smoke Detection: Use of smoke detectors to improve safety and quicken fire response.
  • Radon Measurement: Utilization of radon measuring devices to monitor and ensure healthier indoor air quality.

Naturally connect Netmore LoRaWAN to your real estate portfolio.

A streamlined, trustworthy, and affordable LoRaWAN offering that enables flexible deployment of sensor networks in both personal properties and extensive property portfolios throughout Europe has been developed by Netmore in collaboration with property owners and application developers. With Netmore LoRaWAN, property owners gain a number of advantages:

    Large-scale Sensor Projects: Property owners can quickly and easily set up huge sensor networks.

  • Properly Monitored Dedicated Network: As the operator, Netmore provides property owners with their own network, which is properly monitored and maintained.
