LoRa WAN is a newly emerged game changing communication technology for sending small data packets of size 50 bytes or less, wirelessly over an area of up to 10 Km without the need of an internet connection. LoRa WAN has its own frequency band and the band is different for every country. This technology is now starring to boost WSN technology better than ever before. This paper aims to, power up a LoRa Enabled Device or a LoRa Gateway by using a reliable dual mode non-conventional energy resource for storage and utilization, find peak performances altering the data rate that can be achieved in a LoRa WAN Communication (using Indoor RAK Gateway), make use data compression techniques, data packet encoding / decoding, Coding Apple Shortcuts, setting up Siri and Google Assistant for voice control and future scope.
