Remote Monitoring Solutions for Agriculture and Livestock

Monnit Sensors alert you when crops need water, a barn door is open, or your coop has lost its cool.

Let Sensors Monitor Operations 24/7 & Even After the Cows Come Home

Add agtech to help manage production, ensure safety, and protect livestock.

Minimize Risk & Maximize Yields with Data

There are many benefits to implementing smart agriculture monitoring solutions. These remote crop, orchard, facility, and livestock monitoring systems can help agriculture managers, farmers, and ranchers know in an instant if something is wrong from real-time data alerts on their mobile devices. Plus, with valuable insights from trending data, they can reduce costs, optimize maintenance, boost efficiency, bump up crop yields, keep livestock healthy, and much more.

It’s easy to keep an eye on operations, crops, and livestock with Monnit Sensors connected to the Internet of Things (IoT). By monitoring what matters most, Monnit’s award-winning IoT sensors are your reliable ranch or farmhands. If something goes wrong, the sensors alert you via text, email, or call.

Secure valuable assets and livestock by knowing doors or gates are closed. Check temps and airflow in enclosures, like coops and barns, to ensure livestock well-being. Monitor photosynthetically active radiation (PAR) light in greenhouses to make growing conditions just right. Let your soil tell you when to water your crops with strategically placed ALTA® by Monnit Soil Moisture Sensors throughout your fields and orchards.

Monnit’s 80+ sensor types can do all of this and more—efficiently and economically.

Remote Monitoring for Business - How Monnit Works

Optimize Agribusiness with a Wireless Monitoring Solution

Know everything’s safe, efficient, and growing anytime, anywhere.

Growers' Favorite Sensors

The continued health and well-being of livestock and crops are at the top of any farmer’s mind. With all types of equipment, animal care buildings, and agriculture facilities on a farm or ranch, there is a lot to be concerned about when it just comes to temperature monitoring. Indoor environmental and covered outdoor livestock enclosure conditions can vary widely as the weather changes and doors open and close. The ALTA Wireless Standard Temperature Sensor is just one way to ensure that no matter what space you’re monitoring – livestock pens, greenhouses, or barns – you’ll be alerted the second climate conditions rise or dip beyond an acceptable level. The sensor monitors temperatures between -40°C to +125°C (-40°F to +257°F), automatically logs data, is equipped with 10+ years of battery life, and transmits up to 1,200 feet.

Did a gate not latch properly? Did a door close securely? A key part of a farm monitoring system, installing an ALTA Wireless Open-Closed Sensor, could be the answer to these and many other questions you ask yourself daily. An Open-Closed Sensor registers removal and contact with a magnet to deliver an alert via email, text, or voice call when a door is open or closed. Monitor access points throughout your agricultural facilities 24/7 and get alerts about activity in restricted or high-traffic areas when a door or gate is left open. The sensor helps you watch over remote facilities with important equipment, valuable livestock, and even vacant buildings.

Monitor humidity and temperature levels anywhere on your farm, ranch, or commercial agriculture business with an ALTA Wireless Humidity Sensor. This easy-to-install device adheres to any wall or level surface to accurately report and digitally log readings in our cloud software. Quickly access sensor data from your mobile device or desktop PC. Monnit Sensors can operate in remote areas without the Internet, so you’re alerted to problems when they arise wherever you are. This livestock monitoring sensor measures relative humidity (RH) and climate conditions in virtually any facility. The sensor can also help you determine the dew point.

It’s important to measure airflow or velocity in a heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system to optimize performance, increase energy efficiency and cost savings, and maintain proper airflow rates to ensure occupant comfort. An ALTA Wireless Air Velocity Senser installed in a ventilation system will send automatic updates on airspeed. This is instrumental in deciphering the health of your agricultural facility. Slow-moving air could signify a filter needs to be replaced, or another issue prevents efficient operation. The Air Velocity Sensor works by assessing the pressure difference between its lead’s two ports, plus ambient temperature and altitude, to read the airflow speed.

Measure photosynthetically active radiation (PAR) saturation from sunlight in your fields or orchards, and grow lighting in greenhouses with our ALTA® PAR Light Meter. With this crop health and plant monitoring solution, you’ll know the intensity and the amount of light within the PAR spectrum (389 to 692 nanometers) your crops receive during the day. Get valuable photosynthetic photon flux density (PPFD) and Daily Light Integral (DLI) measurements instantly with the PAR Light Meter. Then you can optimize the conditions of the canopy to maximize crop quality, yield, and ROI.

Water troughs, tanks, and grain silos are three places the ALTA Wireless Ultrasonic Sensor can help you achieve greater knowledge about your operations and efficiency. The Ultrasonic Sensor uses sonar to detect the presence of objects in its path and compensates for temperature and humidity. It’s a radar system for your farm. The sensor can detect liquid and solid levels, track inventory, or monitor traffic. If the status of these measurements changes from preset thresholds, you’ll receive instant alerts via text, email, or call. Additional ways Monnit provides you with the tools to manage your business and gain peace of mind.

If you have a stationary propane tank with an R3D® Remote Ready gauge on your property, the ALTA Wireless Propane Tank Monitor is an ideal sensor for you. The monitor works by inserting a buoyant device into the tank and allowing the sensor placed on the outside of the tank to detect the magnetic pull and estimate the gas level. This sensor will replace time-consuming, manual check-ups on your propane tank level. Just monitor the tank in the cloud on your mobile device or office PC. This industrial sensor will withstand ice, wind-driven dust, snow, and hose-directed water. Portable tanks are not suitable for this device.

Is your power bill too high? Could there be a machine on your ranch or farm that’s consuming more energy than it should? Our ALTA 20, 150, or 500 Amp Wireless AC Current Meter can solve that problem in a hurry. These wireless agriculture monitoring systems can help you predict problems before they occur. You’ll get current use data by root mean square (RMS) and amp hours to help you manage performance. Excessive power consumption levels in machinery are often signs that the equipment is being overworked and may experience failure. An AC Current Meter enables you to predict maintenance and saves you time and money for costly repairs in the future.

Measure soil water tension and temperature in your fields with our ALTA Soil Moisture Sensor. You’ll know how much and when to water your crops to prevent water stress and increase yield throughout your growing operations. The two-in-one wireless crop monitoring sensor features a resistive granular matrix element to measure soil water tension and a thermistor-based temperature element. The Soil Moisture Sensor lets you measure within a range of 0 to 240 centibar (cb) or kilopascal (kPa) and is highly durable in hot and freezing temperatures. It’s easy to install and use compared to traditional tensiometers and works within a broad spectrum of environments and temperatures in fields, orchards, and greenhouses.
