Helium Hotspots are small devices powered by ultra-secure blockchain technology that you place in your home or business. Each hotspot has a 1 to 3 mile signal range that allows IoT (Internet of Things) devices to connect to the internet via the hotspot. Connected devices like bracelets for elderly or vulnerable populations, collars for pets, fire monitors, logistics trackers, and even scooters can use the Helium network to send small packets of data back and forth to update their location or provide other useful data.
Helium Hotspots are hosted by individuals or businesses to create ‘The People’s Network’ – powered by the communities rather than large corporate entities like cellular network providers.
KOWOP covers the expense of purchasing, installing, and maintaining the Hotspot, and you get $10/month for allowing our hotspot to use a very small amount of your electricity and internet access.
