IoT Gateway HAT for Raspberry Pi (868MHz/915MHz) with LoRa®
LoRa® (Long Range) is the smart, long-range, wireless transmission technology that is enabling the future of IoT (Internet of Things).
Our IoT Gateway HAT with LoRa® allows you to create an inexpensive LoRa® gateway, compatible with The Things Network, in conjunction with a Raspberry Pi or other single board computers. The HAT allows you to set up your IoT LoRa® gateway in minutes rather than hours for a third of the price of traditional gateways.
LoRa® (Long Range) is the smart, long-range, wireless transmission technology that is enabling the future of IoT (Internet of Things). It's very low power but is only suitable for very small amounts of data. Making it ideal for sensors such as weather monitoring, air quality etc.
Our IoT LoRa® Raspberry Pi HAT allows you to create an inexpensive LoRa® gateway, compatible with The Things Network, in conjunction with a Raspberry Pi or other single board computers. The HAT allows you to set up your IoT LoRa® gateway in minutes rather than hours for a third of the price of traditional gateways.
The IoT LoRa® Gateway HAT utilises the RAKWireless RAK2247 LoRa® gateway concentrator module which is provides a fully LoRaWAN Compliant gateway listening on 8 channels at the same time.
The HAT is available in two different frequency variations:
The 868MHz version also supports:
EU 863 - 870MHz
IN 865 - 867MHz
The 915MHz version also supports:
US 902 - 928MHz
AU 915 - 928MHz

Low power consumption
Fully soldered and assembled. Plug onto your Raspberry Pi, install our software and you’re ready to go! No waiting for compiling.
HAT form factor means that it is more compact to other solutions on the market
Industrial standard reliability
Suitable for low power wireless sensor network applications such as irrigation systems, smart metering, smart cities, home automation etc.
Real time monitoring
What is a LoRa® Gateway?
A LoRa® Gateway is the piece of hardware in a LoRaWAN Network which is setup to primarily receive packets from LoRa® Nodes and bridge them to a LoRaWAN Network such as The Things Network. These are usually able to receive from hundreds of nodes at the same time and provide LoRaWAN coverage for both your devices and others within range of it. This is most similar to your Wi-Fi Router in a home network.
Pair your IoT LoRa® Gateway HAT with one of our LoRa® Nodes
We have a variety of LoRa nodes that will work with your LoRa Gateway hat such as our...
Installing your LoRa® Gateway outside? Try this case...
The industrial design with heavy-duty double hinges and spring-loaded captive screws sees the case a premier solution. Designed to withstand the toughest environments, the outdoor enclosure is a light, yet very solid wireless outdoor enclosure that fits most boards in today's market. Being NEMA-67 rated, it provides complete protection against ingress of dust as well as protection against immersion in water. View this case.

What is The Things Network?
The Things Network Is a rapidly growing LoRaWAN Provider that is increasing coverage constantly throughout the UK and Worldwide, the benefit of using a public network is devices that you build in one area of the UK will work in any area of the UK or even the EU as long as you're within Coverage! Not got coverage? You can setup your own gateway (such as our IoT LoRa® Gateway HAT for Raspberry Pi) for you and others to use and increase the coverage at the same time. The Things Network offers a commercial plan but more importantly the free to use community plan as standard.
Originally shipped the wrong item. Corrected their mistake promptly and with zero hassle. Gateway was operational within 15 minutes of opening the box. Instructions were much clearer than other pi-based gateways I’ve tried.
Until the PiSupply gateway hat came along I was running a Single Channel Gateway from my Raspberry Pi as other gateway products are very expensive, however the PiSupply gateway offers a very affordable way to run a fully fledged multi channel gateway. The product itself is very high quality and well designed and the software for the Raspberry Pi provided by PiSupply is easy to use and keeps getting regular updates. If you are looking to get started with LoRa then this gateway is perfect, simply pair up with a Raspberry Pi and external antenna, put it in an IP rated box and you are ready to go.
