Pygate is an 8-channel LoRaWAN gateway. Connect your WiPy 3.0, LoPy4 and GPy and hook up any other Pycom devices and voila – a decentralised IoT network.

NOTE: Just add a WiPy, LoPy4 or GPy to provide the processing capabilities as well as the ability to connect to the Internet, radio control and baseband processing.



Pygate is Pycom’s latest hardware tech portfolio addition.

This is a new super low-cost 8-channel LoRaWAN gateway that comes in the shape of a shield. It’s got the well-known form factor from our other shields and you can connect your much loved WiPy3, LoPy4 or a GPy to it. Hook in your Pycom development boards up and you have yourself a nifty little decentralized IoT network in one go. Pygate also fits inside the Universal IP67 Case so you don’t have to limit yourself to indoors.
