Farm Gate Open/Close

NNNCo's Farm Gate IoT solution enables farmers to efficiently monitor opened and closed gates, set alarms for gate opening events, and provide real-time data on open and closed status, frequency of use and time of day use. This enables farmers to quickly respond to events that could impact the safety of farm assets and livestock.

The solution uses LoRaWAN connectivity and the LoRaWAN-enabled Netvox Outdoor Gate Sensor which offers low battery consumption, easy installation and a wireless range of 10 km.

Pricing model

There is a network provisioning fee where there is no pre-existing coverage. Devices are priced per unit with economies of scale. Connectivity costs are based on the number of devices connected with a minimum connectivity pack, which includes device management via N2N-DL platform.

Installation process

Where there is no pre-existing LoRaWAN coverage, a local gateway is professionally installed by either NNNCo or a third party service provider. The IoT device for this solution is generally self-installed by the farmer with NNNCo providing installation instructions and phone or email support as needed during normal working hours. This device is easily installed and doesn't not require an electrician for installation.

Ongoing maintenance required and support provided in Australia

NNNCo maintains and operates the LoRaWAN network, with no work required on the farmer's part. Devices are low maintenance and can be self-maintained by the farmer. The device operates with very low battery consumption and batteries can be replaced by the farmer as required. The solution comes with a device management platform (N2N-DL) which gives farmers visibility of device status and performance.
