Things Manchester is a community of people who are building a crowdsourced Internet of Things network for the benefit of anyone who wants to explore and create, products and services for themselves, their communities and business. It is an open community that encourages everyone to participate, share knowledge and ideas, and help build a resource for everyone.
Things Manchester is part of The Things Network. Started in 2015, it crowdsourced a city-wide public Internet of Things data network for Amsterdam in six weeks using a new technology named LoraWAN™. This community endeavour has inspired people around the world to do the same and build networks for their communities.
Our network in Greater Manchester covers the city centre, south Manchester, Salford, Trafford and Tameside and is expanding all the time. We build infrastructure, devices and run workshops for communities, businesses and the public sector alike. In June 1017 as part of ThingsNorth, we were awarded The Big Chip IoT Impact Award.
