"Emergency data transmission is extremely important in a fire scene and
Semtech's LoRa Technology helps us to build a more stable solution,"
said Hsiao-Mei Lin, General Manager of HEX SAFETY. "LoRa Technology not
only brings a new vision of fire prevention to the industry, but also
creates an innovative IoT application use case that better serves cities
and communities. We hope to use this technology to make public space and
large-scale buildings safer and more comfortable."

HEX's Dynamic Exit Signs integrated with LoRa Technology intuitively
help people navigate complex hazardous zones in real-time by indicating
the quickest and safest direction out of the premises. The conventional
exit signs only signal where the closest exit is, which may mistakenly
lead people into hazard zones. The HEX Dynamic Evacuation System
communicates with the building's existing fire alarm system and sends
the safest direction to every HEX exit sign in the building. By
enhancing people's decision making and shortening the egress route, the
HEX Dynamic Evacuation System significantly increases chances of
survival. Since power outages are common during a fire, LoRa Technology
provides the long range and low power capabilities in an IoT platform
that is needed for operating HEX's exits signs.

"With its flexibility and easy deployment, Semtech's LoRa Technology is
ideal for emergency evacuation solutions," said Vivek Mohan, Director of
IoT for Semtech's Wireless and Sensing Products Group. "HEX's innovative
application is a perfect example of IoT technology solving real-world
challenges that create a smarter planet."
