Netvox R718PB15A LoRaWAN Soil Moisture Sensor

Netvox‘s R718PB15A soil moisture sensor offers a 3-in-1 sensor. Providing readings for temperature, moisture and electrical conductivity, the R718PB15A soil moisture sensor uses LoRaWAN to transmit data.

This LoRa soil moisture sensor is ideal for smart agriculture applications where soil conditions are of paramount importance. For easy installation, the sensor base can fixed to metal objects by an attached magnet.

Compatible with all leading IoT platforms, Netvox’s soil moisture sensor can transmit data to a compatible gateway over a range of up to 10km. Alerts can be set at pre-defined intervals via SMS and email through the sensors configurable parameters.
