Smart Sensors for Small Farms
Our firm is dedicated to helping farmers succeed. Farming is an inherently risky business:
A greenhouse heater goes out at night,
A meat freezer trips a circuit breaker,
A hoop house overheats in the summer, or
The power goes out in a walk-in cooler.
Our goal is to reduce these risks and bring peace of mind to our farming partners. We provide professional level wireless sensors to monitor environmental conditions, upload that data to a web-based dashboard, and send alerts when critical thresholds are exceeded.
Our equipment is for professional businesses, not for home use. We do the research to match the equipment to your farm and set up the software before it arrives, at no cost, so that you don't waste time or money on systems that won't work for you. All you have to do is plug the equipment in and its ready to go. With your annual software renewals we are always here to help you adjust settings, set up alerts, or trouble shoot problems because we want you to be successful,
How We Do It
By combining sensors with low battery consumption, wireless communication, and cloud based data storage, a farmer can use a smartphone to check a cooler, freezer, hoop house or green house while in the field, at the farmers market, from the house, or on vacation.
Your farm's dashboard doesn't just wait for you to check in, it will email, text or call you if any of the sensors exceed critical thresholds. You have full control over how the thresholds are set, when they are active, and how the dashboard communicates with you. It's like having an employee watching over things when you can't.

This holiday season, we visited Calvin Nolt of Woods Edge Farm in the Shenandoah Valley. Calvin runs a livestock and produce farm with two green houses and three hoop houses. He also operates a farm store with a huge walk-in cooler, and seven freezers and refrigerators for meats, prepared foods and produce. The farm store is a 10 minute drive from the farm so, having a monitoring system tracking temperatures there is really valuable. During our visit we added a few sensors to the system, and helped trouble shoot a few issues. It was a joy to see houses full of greens this time of year with temperatures outside in the 20s at night.
