I want to add some sensors around my small farm. I think Lora or LoraWAN is the solution I am looking for but I can not find information about a few issues.
Preface: Internet is pretty much non existent, I have a HA server looking after many devices (electric fence etc) with no reliance on the net at all - everything is contained on the internal network.
In my mind I want to do the following.
Use a LoraWAN device to connect to a gateway on the house and then have it send the data to my HA server. TTN is NOT an option
Protocols supported are just about anything, MQTT has recently been introduced and if need be a custom driver can be written if the protocol the gateway uses is not currently supported.
Is this possible or do I need to look at a different method (zigbee etc)
