When I started the application 4 years ago, it was defined as a LoRa-based measurement system with a 100 Hz sampling rate, it compresses the data and stores it for the time when a center/gateway requests a part of the compressed data, then transmit that part. As you know, this is better than just transmitting all the data frequently in terms of payload size and power consumption, etc.
Recently, I added taking the photo by nodes to the scenario. In addition to monitoring, the system can do anomaly detection.
Now each node can connect to at least five sensors to store 5 series of sensory compressed data together with taking a photo (every 10 sec or so). Every node can locally analyze the data and also can transmit compressed data if requested. Meanwhile, everything in the network is under the control of the center/gateway.
The only question mark was: if the system can be commercialized as it is now? or the regulations don’t allow this, either in the form of the public/private node-to node or LoRaWAN. I use 433 MHz as allowed in my region.
