What is EnviroMonitor?
Have you ever wished for an assistant who would roam your fields, day and night, and keep you informed of changes that might affect your plants? Or maybe a time machine that would let you go back a day or two before an unusual cold snap damaged your crop? EnviroMonitor lets you add almost any sensor you need (dozens of the most popular industry standard sensors) anywhere you need it in your microclimate. As your needs grow and change, you can add or move sensors to create an affordable field system with Cloud-based data and user-friendly software.
Davis has been providing precision agriculture solutions for the farming and growing communities for years. EnviroMonitor, a natural extension of Davis’ capabilities, harnesses the power of precision agriculture. The platform combines weather data with intelligent software to help you determine the best time to plant, spray, fertilise, and harvest.
How Does It Work?
1. You choose the sensors you need. Select from Davis and third-party sensors.
2. Install the sensors and connect them to Nodes (up to four sensors per Node).
3. Pair Nodes to the Gateway (up to 20 Nodes per Gateway) using easy, step-by-step directions in our EnviroMonitor configuration app.
4. The Nodes form a secure, self-optimising, self-healing network, transmitting data from sensors to the Gateway or another Node. Data flows automatically from your fields to your smartphone, giving you the information you need to make important decisions.
5. Manage your crops with personalized software that offers custom alerts, team set-up, and more–all to help you streamline farm management processes. Access your data on WeatherLink.com as well as through Mobilize, our powerful management app.
The EnviroMonitor Gateway: Your data transportation centre
The EnviroMonitor Gateway collects all data from the Nodes and pushes it securely to the Cloud using cellular connectivity. From there, the data can be accessed on your smart devices and computers. The Gateway is encapsulated in a weather-resistant housing and is solar-powered with a battery back-up to keep your data flowing.
You can gather data from up to 20 Nodes per Gateway. That’s up to 80 Davis and third party sensors per Gateway! And because the Nodes can communicate up to a 4,000 feet (1200 meters) in ideal conditions, you can cover a lot of ground with one network.
The EnviroMonitor Node: Your sensor data collector
Connect Davis’ accurate and reliable sensors, as well as third party sensors such as flow meters, pressure switches and more, to an EnviroMonitor Node. You can connect up to four sensors per node.
Nodes gather data from sensors and communicate with each other (up to 4,000 feet, 1200 meters). They connect over a self-optimising mesh network that feeds your data wirelessly to the EnviroMonitor Gateway. Every Node is a self-contained, weather-resistant, solar-powered unit that comes with mounting hardware. You can have up to 20 Nodes in one network.
The EnviroMonitor Configuration App: Your key to an easy setup
We’ve created the Configuration app to make setting up your system painless and quick.
The EnviroMonitor Mobilize App: Your weather data wherever you are
Easily access your data with Mobilize, our free, intuitive, decision-making app (available for iPhone and Android devices) that puts field data in your hands. Designed with your needs in mind: customize screen views, quickly browse sensor data, view forecast, frost info and more.
The EnviroMonitor Website: Your Data, Your Way
Your data can be easily accessed via WeatherLink.com, a secure site dedicated to your weather-viewing needs. It displays current conditions, sensor status, and makes running reports a snap.
Our WeatherLink.com site allows you to customize your dashboard, perform in-depth analysis with reports, charts and graphs, export data and much more. Customize the dashboard to your preferences; even share data privately with others.
