I am want to buy an Outdoor gateway to cover a wider area than possible with an indoor version. But what to buy ? My criteria are coverage, price, design and energy consumption. The last is barely fround in any document. Of course I don’t want to run an additionaly server. I started with the TTN indoor gateway, which covers for about 3km.
For an Outdoor gateway like the Dragino DLOS8, which is 250€ and consumes about 6 Watts. But, what’s it coverage ?
An alternative could be The Things Outdoor gateway, which is stated to cover about 10km, but no info is provided about energy consumption and it costs some more. Here a setup is provided at TTN, which is missing for the Dragineo gateway.
So, what do you recommend ? Which low cost gateway is the best ?
