The Farmbot monitor has two connectivity options that unlock endless opportunities enabling farmers to be connected no matter their location within Australia. Farmbot offers Duplex Satellite or Cellular (3G / 4G) monitors.
The Duplex Satellite monitor works anywhere in Australia and enables two-way communication between farm infrastructure and a mobile or computer via Inmarsat satellite connectivity. The Duplex Satellite has the capabilities to connect to Farmbot’s range of wired and wireless sensors. Plus enables farmers to take an image via the Farmbot Camera, and in the future, close a gate or turn on a pump, all without having to change locations, saving time and money.
The Cellular monitor works on Telstra’s mobile network enabling farmers to be connected if they have one or more bars of mobile coverage at the desired site. The cellular monitor connects to Farmbot’s range of wired and wireless sensors.
