Wireless soil moisture and temperature sensor can help in automatic irrigation systems, greenhouse control, fine agriculture, soil monitoring, and other scenarios. Use this wireless LoRaWAN soil sensor to better manage the soil in a scientific and efficient way. (If you also want to test the soil salinity, please check our S2105 which also monitors soil electrical conductivity)


S2104 wireless soil moisture and temperature is based on FDR technology with advantages of simple, safe, fast, and accurate, long-term measurement, wide range, and simple calibration. It is a kind of soil moisture measurement instrument worth recommending.

Scan-and-Play Simplicity, Easy Configuration via Bluetooth in Just 1 min 

Built-in Bluetooth avoids time-consuming configuration works to bring no code experience to individuals with less or no technical background to quickly get started with CO2, temperature, and humidity sensing detection.

Minimal Maintenance Cost: power-conscious battery, IP66 rugged enclosure, and Bluetooth for remote data acquisition and device management

This sensor can cover a transmission range of 2km in urban scenes and 10km in line of sight scenes while keeping the transmission process low power to support years of usage. Remote monitoring can also benefit large-scale deployment, it gives you the biggest efficiency by saving time and manual labor needed to deploy and manage devices. Together with a replaceable battery that supports Max.10 years of usage and an industrial IP66 enclosure, it meets the need for LoRaWAN-based IoT Solutions in the real world. 

Powerful SenseCAP Mate App: data visualization and remote device management

Compatibility with multiple networks and platforms: easily integrates with existing LoRaWAN networks

We have an article in Learn to introduce the separate network architecture when you choose different LoRaWAN network servers and platforms. 

How to Select Gateway:

LoRaWAN network coverage is required when using sensors, there are two LoRaWAN network options.

Option 1: Sensors work in areas covered by Helium Network(Check on Helium Explore Map).

Option 2: Sensors work in a standard LoRaWAN network, like The Things Network, Loriot, Chirpstack, etc.

SenseCAP Performance Guarantee: robustness and stability

Tips: The battery is a standard Li-SOCl2 battery (type: ER34615) that can purchase from Amazon and other platforms.

Multi-Scenario Application

  • Agriculture Irrigation

Accurate monitoring of soil moisture in the depth of soil is essential for efficient and effective agricultural irrigation techniques. Thus, soil temperature and moisture sensors can help improve yields by preventing plant stress days. Suitable percentage of soil moisture also keeps nutrients in the root zone.

  • Greenhouse and Garden Planting

Soil moisture and temperature are highly related to farm productivity. Too little moisture can lead to yield loss and plant mortality. Too much can lead to root disease and water waste. Using S2104 soil temperature and humidity sensor can help you gain control of your greenhouse root zone environment by the accurate digital display on your phone and laptop.

  • Turf and Lawn Management

The successful implementation of soil moisture and temperature monitoring is also applied to turf/lawn management. Soil moisture and temperature sensor can help turf managers to achieve actual savings and benefits through scientific and accurate analysis to the wetness of turf and lawn.

  • Drought Monitoring

Regional droughts can severely impact economies and even lead to famine in some parts of the world. Soil moisture is critical to understanding the interactions between the atmosphere and the earth's surface. Accurately knowing soil temperature and humidity sensors can help predict and characterize harmful droughts.

**  This wireless LoRaWAN Temperature and Humidity sensor support up to 10 years of battery life, but the actual battery life varies from data upload interval, data payload, and distance between gateways. If you want to optimize the battery life, you can choose to send a smaller amount of data, send messages less frequently, and keep spreading factor as low as possible. 


LoRaWAN Frequency

Note: No Frequency limitation. Sensor switched to other frequency plans at any time.

S210x Devices are manufactured to support the universal frequency plan from 863MHz ~928MHz in one SKU. That is to say, every single device can support the frequency plans below:

Frequency Plan

Common Name







Sub-band from 1 to 8



Sub-band from 1 to 8



AS923_1, AS923_2, AS923_3, AS923_4










The frequency plan setting is none by default and it will not transmit RF signal until it has been set by App via Bluetooth at the first power-up. And it can be changed to other frequency plans at any time.
