MySensors if support LoRa sx1276 / sx1278，and how to use that
Welcome to the MySensors community @maolintao !
The library has support for RFM95 in LoRa mode,
but there is no support for sx1276/8.
EDIT: Yes there is, see below
LoRa isn't very useful to many home automation use cases, due to the long send times, limited ack support and the 1/10% duty cycle limits though. Could you describe how you want to use it?
not rechecked, but if remember well, hoperf is using semtech sx1276 chip for their rfm95..
So if i'm not wrong, you can use it in LORA mode with Mysensors.
@mfalkvidd We are doing a test to achieve the school energy (such as water, electricity) data collection, but each collection point is about 1-2 kilometers away. Do you have any good suggestions? Thank you very much
@maolintao for that use case LoRa should work well.
It is more the interactive stuff (turning lights on an off for example) that LoRa isn't very suitable for.
@scalz yes, you are right. The library does have SX127x support.
RH_RF95 Works with Semtech SX1276/77/78/79, Modtronix inAir4 and inAir9, and HopeRF RFM95/96/97/98 and other similar LoRa capable radios
Sorry for the confusion.
@mfalkvidd thank you，yes It's very good

@maolintao did you have any working code for mysensors that works for the sx1278?
