Talk: What I learnt by standing in a ditch

Over the past 4 years Flood Network has developed from a hackday project into a sustainable business which provides the equipment and expertise to help you monitor water levels to reduce the risk from flooding. Their systems let you monitor water levels every 15 minutes and take action when levels become problematic.

This talk will cover 8 lessons about LoRaWAN to help your strategy, from network selection to tools and target markets. Wellies not required!
