Ghirardelli Square: LoRaWAN Innovations provide a path to preserve a sweet piece of American history

Dean Fung-a-Wing, Founder and CEO of Kairos, shares how Kairos uses LoRaWAN sensors to detect potential issues in commercial and multifamily buildings. The case study of Ghirardelli Square, a unique layout converted from an old chocolate factory to apartment units and retail, highlights the success of Kairos' deployment of only 3 LoRaWAN gateways in detecting and preventing a major water damage event and 2 block power outage, compared to the typical deployment of over 50 wifi gateways. The presentation will explore the cost and efficiency benefits of using LoRaWAN gateways in building management, as well as the potential for preventing costly damages and improving overall building safety.
