I. INTRODUCTION
The LoRa® SPY is a recorder capable of measuring 1 or 2 physical quantities (T / TH or other quantity depending
on the model) and transmitting by radio to monitoring software hosted on a platform. The radio transmission
uses the LoRa® long-distance network.
The LoRa® SPY complies with EN 12830 with temperature probes only, and is compatible with EN 13486
which defines procedures for periodic verification.

Symbols
RECYCLING: do not dispose of in a refuse dump or waste disposal bin. Comply with existing legislation for disposal.
Power source: this device is powered by a 3.6VDC type AA lithium battery (§ ch. V).
CE LABELING: this device is certified to conform to European regulations for electrical safety, flammability, disruptive
electromagnetic emissions, and immunity to environmental electrical disturbances.
Do not use the device under conditions other than those described in the technical
characteristics
Risk of fire or explosion in the case of improper use:
- Recharging of the battery
- Short circuiting of the battery
If the device is used in a manner not specified by the manufacturer, the protection
provided by the device may be compromised.
II. INSTALLATION RECOMMENDATIONS
The LoRa® SPY is a recorder which communicates by radio with software hosted on a Web platform via the
LoRa® long-distance network. To ensure optimal radio transmission, a certain number of recommendations
must be respected, as any wireless transmission is subject to disturbances.
a)
Sources of disturbances or attenuation

©JRI
The presence of obstacles in the wave path between the LoRa® SPY and the LoRa® SPY Link (wall,
furniture, people…) or near the antenna.
3

The thickness of an obstacle in the wave path. The attenuation is greater diagonally than
perpendicularly

A solid metal wall will not allow transmission by radio. A perforated metal wall will allow waves
to pass while attenuating them.
b)
Positioning

The LoRa® SPY units can be placed either inside or outside the enclosures.

For installations outside the enclosure, mount the units sufficiently high on the walls to avoid
interference with obstacles and foot traffic.

The LoRa® SPY uses the LoRa® public network.

Never place the LoRa® SPY unit horizontally.

If difficulties persist use the LoRa® SPY with remote probe in order to position it in a zone of radio
coverage.
To ensure your safety during installation or an intervention on a device placed in a high
position, use proper equipment which is in good condition and provides adequate
stability, wear appropriate, non-slip shoes and install warning signs around the work
area if the intervention takes place in an area of foot traffic.

Le LoRa®SPY T1 is equipped with a detector of presence or absence of light.
When the LoRa®SPY unit is enclosed (in the dark) the measurements are no longer
displayed (wheaeas the battery level, the RSSI and the network indicators still are) and
its status LED continues to flash.

X. GUARANTEE
Our material is guaranteed for one year, parts and labor, against any manufacturing defect, functional
failure or abnormal wear. This guarantee covers only the replacement of parts recognized to be defective
as well as the repair of the material in question returned shipping paid to our workshops, and excludes all
damages and interest or incidental expenses.
The starting point of the guarantee is the date of invoice of the concerned product. The invoice must be
provided for any request for application of the guarantee. Repairs under guarantee in no way extend the
guarantee period accorded to the product at the time of sale. Deterioration due to any abnormal usage or
to storage under adverse environmental conditions is excluded from our guarantee.
XI. MAINTENANCE CONTRACT
How best to optimize your radiofrequency installation?
Radiofrequency measurement systems communicate through Hertzian waves. Many factors (change in
installation, moving, supplemental wall, interference with another radio system…) can nonetheless modify
the radio pathway previously defined. The use of radiofrequency thus requires periodic monitoring by
recognized specialists.
It is for this reason that JRI has developed for you the maintenance contract. We simplify your procedures
by offering you a fully-integrated solution. This global service offer includes both maintenance and a
metrological service, ensuring the optimum functioning of your devices or of your installation.
You'll no longer have to worry about the maintenance of your devices!
This maintenance contract allows you to benefit, for a minimum period of 2 years, from a variety of
services such as:
- annual or biannual verification of the material
- an extension of the guarantee
- telemaintenance
- telephone assistance +33 (0) 892 680 933 (0,282 € HT/min)
- replacement of the material onsite or by a return to the factory
- verification of measurement accuracy (metrological certificate)
- battery replacement
- access to new software versions
- intervention within 48 working hours following identification of the fault by our experts
XII. ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION
JRI recommends to its customers the disposal of their unusable and/or irreparable measurement and
recording materials in a manner compatible with the protection of the environment. As the production of
waste materials cannot be avoided, these should be reused through the recycling process best adapted to
the considered materials and to the protection of the environment.
RoHS Directive
The RoHS European directive regulates and limits the presence of dangerous substances in
electronic and electric equipment (EEE).
All new electronic equipment designed, developed and manufactured by JRI are in compliance
with the aforementioned Directive 2002/95/CE.
