Reliable water sensing! This Multi-phase water sensor for reliable water presence detection. A surface water depth of approximately 1cm is all that is required to trigger detection.
Each BaySensor is securely connected to the TecaLink Cloud platform allowing you to monitor and control your BaySensors from a Mobile Phone, Tablet, or PC. You are able to customise your BaySensors from the Cloud:
Set the mobile phone number for SMS notifications
Give each BaySensor a personalised name
Adjust your email notification preferences
Portable, the innovative tripod design allows for easy deployment in thick vegetation. There is no need to cut out or lay down vegetation to allow sensor to operate properly.
GPS enabled! Know the location and status of each of your BaySensor . Notification SMSs and emails include the map to help you locate the BaySensor that notified you.
The monitor pictured is fitted with the optional FarmEye camera. This can be used to remotely observe the Bay.
Designed to run on very low power. With ample solar charging capacity, there is no need to charge the BaySensor between deployments. Being Solar powered it will operate for many days in low sunlight conditions.
To deploy the BaySensor , simply extend the legs and place it on the ground. To pack up, drag unit forwards and the legs automatically fold in.
Built to stand up to use in harsh farming environments:
Tough PVC housing and legs
Legs can be bent an any direction without breaking
Recessed solar panels to avoid damage
No external antenna to break, snag, or poke you in the eye
Sturdy and stable in windy conditions
On the unit it’s possible to check battery charge and confirm network connectivity at the deployed location using the built-in display and menu system. Additionally, if network coverage is low then a test SMS can be sent from the BaySensor to confirm operational connectivity.
Easy to locate at night! The locator light will flash when water has been detected, helping you to locate the BaySensor during night waterings. Locator light can also be activated via the TecaLink Cloud when required.
Notification preferences can be set for Water Presence, Low Battery, Network Disconnect and Predictive Watering Time. Notifications can be delivered in multiple ways:
