Installation process

The solution is designed to be plug n' play with the sensor easily connecting to the Blue Node through the sensor join. (in this case the sensor is the Davis Weather Station and this product is an optional add on to that device) Commissioning the device to activate reporting through the Incyt Dashboard is either automatic or done through scanning the QR code on the product. LX can provide a paid installation service to install any of our devices. The sensors are generally plug n' play but some sensors or solutions such as the inversion pole or soil moisture probes may require specialist equipment to dig holes, or attach to fencing. We can supply this equipment and labour or the farmer can install/hire equipment themselves.

Ongoing maintenance required and support provided in Australia

The software for the device allows for OTA (over the air) updates and the Professional grade Lithium Battery in the Blue Node can last up to 10 years*. Battery refurbishment is available through LX if required and both the LX Blue Node and the smart sensor join have been developed to withstand the elements. Any maintenance requirements are supported through the Incyt App and our online support team. We also provide support by phone during normal working hours.
