NFC RFID LoRa Button new on the market


More than just a button!

Sometimes it can be a bit more. If a simple acknowledgement or alarm via button alone is not enough, but a unique identification of the person who has pressed the button is also required, then the NFC RFID-LoRa Button is the right choice. With the newly developed button from Mutelcor, the market now has an NFC RFID reader with button function for a wide range of applications.

The new Mutelcor NFC RFID LoRa Button combines contactless NFC identification with innovative LoRa technology. The IoT solution offers your employees a fast, intelligent and smart way to uniquely identify themselves at the respective location and send LoRa messages at the same time.

The dual function of the NFC RFID LoRa button enables both contactless identification of users by NFC/RFID and sending an uplink message via LoRaWAN by pressing the button:

This can involve service requests, calls for help, reporting emergencies, or even notifying first responders - depending on the application.


One button - many possibilities

The button can be used in a variety of ways - at the top of the list are applications that require identification. The devices are particularly suitable for care and cleaning staff, security personnel, services of all kinds, admission controls, access control, reporting of information of all kinds, and much more.
TheMutelcor NFC RFID-LoRa Button can also beusedfor personalized handovers or pick-up and delivery services. Likewise, the button can function as a patient call and via an activated NFC/RFID reader, the caregiver can then additionally confirm the care of the patient. The NFC RFID-LoRa Button can be used to record the essential W's: Who, When and Where.

Museums, educational institutions or hotels and restaurants can also be effective fields of application for the new button. Ultimately, the application determines which button makes sense and should be used. What is new about the NFC RFID-LoRa button, however, is that clear identification and acknowledgement are possible.

The individual devices have a battery life of up to 5 years, are dustproof and waterproof (IP67), can be used both indoors and outdoors, and regularly send a status message with their battery status. Due to the LoRa frequency used, data transmission is encrypted and secure.

The button signals local confirmation via a beep when the button is pressed, which minimizes any false readouts. In addition, the NFC RFID-LoRa Button is offered in two variants - with one or with two buttons. Thus, depending on the type of use, an acknowledgement or other event can also be registered in addition to reporting.

A dedicated configuration website is available for configuration: Via a dashboard, the set values can be digitally changed at any time, conveniently and from any location.
