IoT Connectivity

LoRaWAN Device

The Helium Hotspot enables anyone to own and operate a wireless network for low-power Internet of Things (IoT) devices. The Helium Hotspot provides hundreds of square miles of connectivity and can transmit data at a fraction of the cost of a cellular network.

Helium uses an open-source LongFi architecture, which combines the LoRaWAN wireless protocol and the Helium blockchain. Hotspots also acts as miners on the Helium blockchain so owners can earn a new cryptocurrency (HNT), for building the network and transferring IoT device data.

Smart pet collars, environmental sensors, bike trackers, or any compatible IoT device can connect to Helium Hotspots without Wi-Fi or cellular networks, inspiring innovation and enabling new use cases. The Helium Network is present in North America and Europe.
