Hi WildLabs community,
I support a few wildlife areas in the Eastern Cape, South Africa. The terrain can be very challenging here with deep narrow valleys and thick vegetation. Cellular signal is therefore very patchy and ops rooms are having trouble receiving live location information from their APU or patrol teams that are using otherwise great apps like EarthRanger Mobile. I'm therefore reaching out for recommendations of reliable, durable, affordable personnel trackers. Extra points if they can be integrated into EarthRanger! Some of these sites have LoRa but it's a proprietary network for specific animal tracking devices only, not LoRaWAN. This is not my area of expertise but I'm going on the assumption that 100% satellite/GPS devices are our only option....?
Please let me know if you've got any recommendations that have been successful in limited connectivity.
Thanks in advance.
