Product Description
WatchDog Retriever and Pup Weather Stations

Wireless sensor network that allows growers and researchers the ability to…

Monitor crop and soil microclimates for:
Soil moisture/irrigation scheduling
Insect and disease pressures
Frost/temperature alerts
Plant growth
Additional sensor inputs
Transmit data in rolling/complex topography
Collect site specific data with one system
Mesh networks are "self-healing," since the network automatically finds the fastest and most reliable paths to send data, even if nodes (Pups) are blocked or lose their signal

Applications for Plant Management

• Monitor frost temperatures for real-time decisions to protect crops
• Track soil moisture and EC in numerous locations for better irrigation practices
• Record temperature and humidity for decisions regarding disease and insect pressure


Network Components
