Netmore Group and Stena Fastigheter Collaborate to Connect 27,000 Apartments with LoRaWAN Technology

Netmore Group, a leading global LoRaWAN network operator, has entered into a agreement with Stena Fastigheter, a Swedish real estate company to implement LoRaWAN technology across Stena’s property portfolio.

This initiative aims to enhance energy efficiency and digital capabilities of Stena’s real estate operations.

Project scope and implementation

The project involves providing Netmore’s LoRaWAN connectivity to apartments across Stockholm, Malmö, and Gothenburg. The implementation includes the installation of a large number of LoRaWAN gateways to support Stena’s rollout of submetering (IMD) and temperature/humidity sensors, including up to approximately 42,900 meters and sensors.

Initial focus on energy optimization and enhanced quality of living

A key aspect of the partnership is the use of technology for energy optimization. The primary applications include sub-metering enabled by the deployment of water meters, along with temperature and humidity sensors, which are expected to contribute to more efficient energy management in Stena’s properties. Additionally, this technological integration is anticipated to enhance the quality of living for residents, offering a more comfortable and sustainable living environment.

Eric Collinder, Country Manager Nordics at Netmore Group, stated, “We are now entering a phase where LoRaWAN becomes the natural choice of access technology for property owners. We are particularly proud to have Stena Fastigheter, a leading property company in the Nordics, as our customer. They are a prime example of this, opting to equip their portfolio with Netmore LoRaWAN. Providing connectivity for solutions of this scale aligns well with our strategic goals and reflects our established expertise in the property sector.”

Peter Mikulic, Head of Digital Transformation at Stena Fastigheter, expressed, “By equipping our properties with meters and sensors, we can constantly align with the consumption patterns of the buildings and the needs of our tenants, while ensuring that any excess consumption is minimized. After a thorough evaluation of various access technologies and connectivity providers, we chose Netmore LoRaWAN. With Netmore’s connectivity, we can continue to maintain the high level of innovation and environmental consideration that our tenants have come to associate with us.”

Potential for future technological integration

While the initial focus is on energy optimization, the partnership and LoRaWAN technology also allows for the exploration and deployment of additional technological applications in real estate management in the future, demonstrating the versatility of Netmore’s LoRaWAN solutions.

Potential applications include:

Water Leak Detection: Sensors to identify and alert about water leaks, preventing damage and conserving water.
