Through sensors installed in your water tanks, dams, troughs, and turkey nests, you can monitor water levels in real-time on the Farmdeck app.
Sensors, networking hardware and installation services are priced via quote. Access to the Farmdeck application to see your data is subscription based depending on the number of farms and users you need. See more details on pricing here: https://www.farmdeck.com/pricing/
The solution is installed by Farmdeck, and the team also adds the water assets to the customer's Farmdeck account on the app. Our team is also composed of wireless and networking engineers who can design and deploy the network required for your farm to do IoT. Alternatively, we can install Farmdeck on any network already available at your farm.
We have technical staff on the ground to provide support for hardware set up and maintenance, software training and data interpretation. We also provide support by phone during normal working hours.

Farmdeck helped Red Hill Farm owner, Luke Bowman, solve his water level monitoring challenge. Red Hill Farm is located in Barraba, a town 90 kilometres north of Tamworth, NSW, a region deeply affected by the drought after two years without rain (from 2017 to 2019). Luke sees technology as the best way to optimise the 2,400-hectare farm and their practices before passing it on to the next generation. To sustain their 700 breading cows, the farm has 8 water tanks, and up to 50 active troughs at any given time. To ensure utilised paddocks have enough water and there are no leaks, a daily water run is required. This task is estimated to take roughly two hours out of their morning. Luke felt that the way he and his family had been operating was inefficient and could be improved with technology. Read the whole case study here: https://www.farmdeck.com/stories/red-hill-farm/
