Strega Technologies Smart Valve / Emitter

Strega Technologies began operations in 2011 and their team are experienced in Automation, SCADA and communications. They are Remote Monitoring experts, creating solutions for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).

A particular focus today is on the smart control of valves used in irrigation and flow control. Using their in-depth knowledge in this area, Strega have built a solution integrating LoRaWAN technology into smart valves to provide wireless remote control and management of the valves. Strega's solution is a smarter way to control the valves thanks to their Scheduler, allowing the solution to overcome the issues of LoRaWAN being a best efforts network for data (i.e. some data packet loss).

Besides being able turn ON/OFF a valve from a platform, the scheduler is locally stored in the device memory for controlling the valves at a predefined interval avoiding under or over watering the crops.
