Partners Keep An Eye On Soil Moisture

Senet, provider of connectivity and network management for the IoT, and Sensoterra BV, a provider of wireless soil moisture measurement sensors, announce a multi-year partnership to operate Sensoterra’s soil moisture system on Senet’s standards-based IoT network. Monitoring soil moisture allows farmers to make effective irrigation decisions. However, most sensors are wired and expensive with limited deployment range, making them unsuitable to monitor multiple points in outdoor farm fields.

 

Sensoterra addresses these issues with a rugged, self-sustaining, low-cost, wireless solution purpose-built to operate on LoRaWAN infrastructure and capable of meeting the most demanding use cases at the lowest possible total cost of ownership. Ease of installation and operation are significant differentiators of the Sensoterra soil moisture system. Sensors can be installed in a matter of minutes and data is viewable online less than one hour after installation. A free app is available for download and can operate on a laptop, tablet or mobile phone. Users have the ability to manage their installations through an easy to use dashboard and an open API is available for data integration.
