What we're about

We are building a free and open-source wireless LoRaWAN IoT network, owned and operated by its users in Ithaca and Tompkins County!

Our work is based on The Things Network (TTN), an alternative (crowd-sourced, non-cellular) wireless connectivity medium for low-cost IoT sensors connected to user applications via the cloud. TTN gives a real alternative for entrepreneurs, researchers, hackers and hobbyists to deploy wireless sensors without having to figure out the complexities of cellular service or finding a Wi-Fi access point suitable for each sensor at each location.

In the fall of 2017, Tompkins County passed a budget funding Cornell Cooperative Extension to deploy the network across Tompkins County in 2018: http://ccetompkins.org/community/internet-of-things . Join us to help with deployment, siting, outreach, or just to learn about this exciting technology and how you might use it yourself.

Anyone is welcome to participate, regardless of level of technical expertise.

TTN Ithaca Oct meeting

Online event

This is our monthly meeting. We'll discuss activities for the previous month, and we'll plan for the next month. People of all technical skill levels are welcome.

We'll be doing this by Zoom meeting, as we don't think face-to-face meetings will be advisable.

TTN Ithaca Oct Hacking Office Hours

Online event

We'll meet online to work informally on IoT/LoRaWAN projects and kibitz.

Bring stuff to your computer that you want to work on, or bring questions, or just drop in to see what we're doing. Depending on who's there and what's in the queue, we may have impromptu seminars on LoRaWAN or The Things Network.
