In most leak detection systems, gateways run on networks with fairly limited ranges. This is why it is standard to place one on each floor to ensure no detections of leaks go unnoticed. Since the K1 Gateway runs on a LorAWAN network (Wide Area Network), a leak on the 16th floor was detected after installing only 2 gateways. Rather than having to install 16 devices, the leak was identified at the very beginning of the installation process and addressed immediately.
