Revolutionizing Agriculture: How Unique Aussie Design is Winning Awards and Helping FarmersRead now
The Water Rat from Farmo is revolutionizing the way farmers monitor their water supply. Designed by a farmer, the device uses a GPS system to monitor water levels in troughs and tanks and sends real-time alerts to your phone or PC when levels drop. It's cost-effective, with no need for multiple devices, and has won several design and sustainability awards. The Water Rat is a critical tool for farmers, providing historical data that can be used to improve herd management and reduce water waste.
Why is LoRa an optimal choice for on farm connectivity?LoRa, the top choice for on-farm connectivity, offers impressive range up to 15 kilometres, even reaching over 25 kilometres in some projects. With a single gateway, LoRa can manage data collection from hundreds of devices, serving as the sole backhaul point for the network. Unlike NB-IoT and Satellite technologies, which require each device to provide its own backhaul, LoRa allows for more frequent and cost-effective data transmission. It enables data transmission from multiple devices at a reduced cost per packet. Read the benefits of LoRa for your farming operations.Read now
