SSEN RainMan Project was the first UK real-time field monitoring system installed with a Low Power Wide Area Network communication medium (referred to here as LoRa). The LoRa network gathers real-time information from monitoring equipment using an Internet of Things (IoT) platform to collect data. The SSEN RainMan Project specifically developed pole movement detection IoT, to monitor the status of the wooden poles across the Isle of Skye.

To prove the assumption that LoRa enabled IoT monitoring equipment can be;
·       purchased for less than £50 per unit
·       is easily installed onto a LoRa Network
·       Real-time field data can be readily accessible
