This proof of concept kit will allow you to get your smart farming system off the ground. We’ve put together a LoRaWAN® agricultural monitoring kit that includes some key sensors and an outdoor LoRaWAN® gateway to get you started. These products are pre-provisioned and ready to use so you can start using them straight away.
The smart farming PoC kit allows you to monitor:
- soil conditions; moisture levels, temperature and electrical conductivity
- tank levels for storage or waste
- outdoor air temperature and humidity
- identify gates or doors left open (using a reed switch sensor)
All of the sensors and gateways included in this proof of concept kit are suitable for outdoor use. Sensors transmit data to the gateway, which sends the information on to a cloud-based server. LoRaWAN technology is perfectly placed to send small amounts of data over large distances (up to 10km), so can be used across large areas of farm land with few gateways.
What’s in the box?
Our proof of concept kits are designed with simplicity in mind. They include a small selection of sensors to get you started. You can test your project on a small scale, before introducing a wider range of sensor functionality and add gateways to cover a larger area. The Smart Farming PoC kit includes:
- Soil moisture sensor (Netvox R718PB15A)
- Ultrasonic tank level sensor (Tekelek TEK839)
- Outdoor temperature and humidity sensor (Netvox R712)
- LoRaWAN reed switch sensor (Netvox R718F)
- Outdoor LoRaWAN gateway with 3G/4G/ethernet backhaul (Kerlink Wirnet iStation) with external antenna, POE injector and surge protection
- Sensor and gateway provisioning
- LoRaWAN Network Server (LNS) access for 3 months
- Dashboard to access data
- Technical support
- Batteries included
- IoT SIM plans available
- server subscription
This proof of concept kit will allow you to test your smart farming system. You can add on then scale up the LoRaWAN IoT project to cover multiple sites, or add further sensors that are relevant to your business. We have a wide range of sensors that are suitable for agricultural monitoring applications. Alternatively, speak to our technical team about custom-selected PoC kits.
All of our LoRaWAN starter packs are preconfigured remotely by our in-house technical experts. Our team will help you to get the most out of your products, and allow you to easily access the data that you need through an intuitive data dashboard. This can be linked to an application server of your choice.
