SenseCAP Wireless Soil Moisture and Temperature Sensor - LoRaWAN EU868MHz
SenseCAP Wireless Soil Moisture and Temperature Sensor measures soil volumetric water content (VWC) and temperature. It's designed with a 2-in-1 sensor that integrates soil temperature and soil moisture, a custom battery and an IP66 enclosure, optimized for outdoor use cases that need reliable data collection over years.
Among the first launch of Seeed industrial IoT (IIoT) product series, SenseCAP is focusing on wireless environmental sensing applications: smart agriculture, precision farming, and smart city, to name a few. It consists of hardware products (sensors, data-loggers & gateways, etc.), software services (SenseCAP portal, mobile App, open dashboard), and API for device & data management. SenseCAP supports different communication protocols, such as LoRa, 2G, 4G, NB-IoT, and more.
Please send email to sensecap[at]seeed[dot]cc to request any technological support for this product.
SenseCAP Wireless Soil Moisture & Temperature Sensor measures soil volumetric water content (VWC) and soil temperature at the range of 0 ~ 100% (m³/m³) and -30 ~ 70℃ respectively. With the high-quality soil moisture and temperature probe, this sensor features high precision and sensitivity regardless of soil variability, making it widely applicable in industrial IoT (IIoT) scenarios such as water-saving irrigation, outdoor fields, greenhouses, and more.
SenseCAP Sensor is fully compliant with LoRaWAN specifications and can be used with standard LoRaWAN gateways. Please choose the corresponding gateway according to the sensor frequency.
Seeed also provides SenseCAP LoRaWAN Gateway for you to use with SenseCAP Sensors seamlessly without extra huge workload for provisioning.
