I have read an interesting article about partnership with the American operator Senet and pest control product maker Woodstream Co. Their products are actually rodent traps with LoRa connectivity that gives these traps mobile and web monitoring, real-time alerting and multi-year battery life. The major benefits are faster emptying of the traps, disease control and no manual servicing of all the traps i.e. less people needed to do the job. More information here. This is really one interesting IoT application.
