LoRa (Long Range) technology is designed to provide long-range communication, but its ability to pass through buildings depends on a number of factors, including the building materials, the thickness of the walls, and the location of the LoRa devices.
In general, LoRa signals can penetrate certain types of building materials, such as drywall, wood, and glass, but they may be blocked or attenuated by other materials, such as concrete or metal. The thickness of the walls can also affect the ability of LoRa signals to pass through buildings.
If LoRa devices are located inside a building, the signal strength and range may be reduced due to the attenuation and reflection of the signal by the building materials. In this case, it may be necessary to deploy additional LoRa gateways or repeaters inside the building to ensure reliable communication.
Overall, the ability of LoRa to pass through buildings will depend on the specific environment and deployment, and it’s important to perform site surveys and signal testing to determine the optimal placement of LoRa devices and gateways.
