By The Things Industries

What are smart farming and agriculture solutions?

Smart agriculture technologies help farmers improve all areas of agricultural productivity, including asset tracking, smart irrigation, soil moisture monitoring, and much more.

How does LoRaWAN® enable smart asset tracking and logistics solutions?

LoRaWAN, an IoT communication protocol, stands out because of its wide coverage in rural areas. Using a very small amount of energy to transfer bits of information ensures long battery life. This makes LoRaWAN the perfect technology to track their soil and animals and make better decisions to improve their operations without worrying about maintaining the devices and gateways often.

The Things Stack for animal tracking and smart agriculture solutions

The Things Industries network server, The Things Stack, allows setting up the technology for real-time monitoring. Its features like firmware update over the air allows you to reconfigure your devices remotely, which is convenient for rural and wide areas of farms.

Check out the Device Repository for LoRaWAN, where you can search for sensors and gateways by its features or particular use case.
