Samea and Sequans Partner on Smart Building IoT Monitoring Solution

By Ken Briodagh

In a recent release, Sequans Communications announced that Samea Innovation, provider of wireless products, is set to use its Monarch GM01Q module to provide the LTE connectivity for the new Sensoriis Smart Building Wireless Sensor.

The Sensoriis device is designed to monitor, collect, and analyze building status information, including temperature, humidity, air quality, pressure, light, color of light, sound, noise, and movement for a wide range of applications, including smart, home, smart building, home automation, and security/alarm systems.

“We selected Sequans’ Monarch GM01Q to provide the connectivity for the Sensoriis because of its ultra-low power consumption and its 17-band coverage, enabling us to deploy it globally,” said Sebastien Amiot, director, Samea Innovation. “With Monarch GM01Q’s high level of efficiency and other advanced features, we are able to address sustainable and green business applications in the smart home, smart city, and smart building market segments.”

Sensoriis reportedly now combines the Sequans LTE-M connectivity with Zigbee and Bluetooth 5.0.

“Building facility managers are gradually leveraging multi-sensor IoT hardware to augment their existing building management systems and offer new value-added services to improve occupant experience and reduce operational expenses” said Adarsh Krishnan, Principal Analyst, ABI Research. “This growing demand for wireless sensors and actuators in commercial buildings will drive annual revenue from field devices to exceed US$ 684 million by 2026. As a leading provider of modules that are optimized for smart building and smart home IoT, Sequans is addressing the opportunities of this market.”

These partnerships are critical to the success of the IoT as an industry, and to its growth. Plan now to continue these lines of strategic thinking at the IoT Evolution Expo, coming in February 2021 in Miami.
