AgrioValve: Irrigation automation
This device controls two latching valves via Internet. Valves can be switched on / off directly from Agri Commander web platform either manually or automatically by software. Except valves, it has 2 water pressure sensors and one any kind of sensor (like soil moisture or phytosensor). Powered by solar panel and rechargeable battery, it provides energy independent functionality under all weather conditions. LoRa Internet connection does not require SIM card and GSM contract. Small form factor, low price and low energy consumption makes it perfect solution for small and middle size farms using drip irrigation.
