WHAT WE SOLVE

Monitoring soil moisture helps farmers manage soil moisture and plant health.
Irrigating the correct amount at the right time can lead to:

HIGHER CROP YIELDS

The average crop yield is directly associated with practices that increase soil moisture at the depth of the root system. Our soil moisture probes have up to 6 sensors and can measure up to depths of 1.5m ensuring that you can always measure at the correct levels.

FEWER DISEASES

Excessive soil moisture can cause several diseases which are dangerous in all development stages of the crop. We help prevent crop failure by monitoring the moisture levels in real-time and sending alerts straight to your phone when the soil becomes oversaturated.

WATER SAVINGS

Overwatering is not only dangerous to the crop, but also waste money and the precious water resource. By monitoring the soil moisture levels closely you can make informed decisions on when, and how much to irrigate.

REDUCED IRRIGATION COSTS

The ever-increasing electricity expenses can be reduced by irrigating for shorter durations, and only where and when it is necessary. We keep all historical data on our cloud dashboard, so you can use it to decide how much irrigation is required for each crop.

THIS IS HOW WE DO IT

DIY installation: We have made the solution simple to save on installation costs. All our sensors are plug-and-play and can easily be installed yourself using cable-ties, pop rivets or drill screws. No internet connection, airtime or power needed. Our battery powered sensors make use of Sigfox, a global IOT network infrastructure that provides affordable, reliable, and secure communications to our cloud server. This means that our sensors operate without using your site's power or internet connection. Because it communicates using the Sigfox radio network, there is no SIM-card or air-time management required on your side. Transmit frequencies can be changed from every 10 minutes, to once a day, where battery life can be extended up to 10 years on a single battery.

ACCURATE PROBES

We use the market leading, capacitance based Aquacheck probes.

EASY TO UNDERSTAND OVERVIEW

We map all your probes on a map of your farm(s), highlighting any problem areas.

HIGH AVAILABILITY

Our data is available to you 24/7, from any device, anywhere in the world.

OUR SOLUTION

Our soil moisture, and temperature and humidity monitoring system makes use of digital probes to monitor and log the temperature and humidity of anything, including cold storage rooms, chillers, freezers, and their electrical motors.

SIGFOX

Our battery powered sensors make use of Sigfox, a global IOT network infrastructure that provides affordable, reliable and secure communications to our cloud server.

REPORTING

We log and store all readings to our cloud servers in real-time and display the data on a user-friendly dashboard. You have access to your data from any device, anywhere in the world. Quality control reports can be customised and sent out automatically.

CLOUD SOLUTION

Our temperature and humidity monitoring solution records readings periodically and logs them directly to the cloud, where they cannot be manipulated, and the management team has access to all historical readings. Our cloud dashboard can be accessed from any device anywhere in the world.

ALERTS Alerts are sent via WhatsApp, SMS and email
