Soil Moisture

Capacitance Based Probe

The AquaCheck Sub-Surface probe is a capacitance-based soil moisture and soil temperature monitoring device offering up to 6 sensors per probe. Our loggers provide reliable and secure communications through the national and global SigFox network.

The logger can be configured to transmit the readings once every 30 minutes, or once every hour, and provide alerts when soil moisture is too high or too low.

Probe lengths available in 200mm to 1600mm
Up to 6 sensors

Applications and Benefits

Typical Applications:

Smart Agriculture

Easy Installation

The logger is small, compact and easy to install using screws, pop rivets, cable ties or double sided tape.

The probe should be installed using an Aquacheck auger.

Long Battery Life

Our 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.


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


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.


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
