Smart Irrigation Strategies with Milesight

Posted on

Solenoid Valve

Many factors contribute to the growth, productivity and quality of crops, but water supply is perhaps the most vital one. Soil moisture deficiency will lead to a reduction in growth and longer production times, while over-irrigation will cause water waste and damage to crops. So farmers need a smart irrigation system that implements smart irrigation strategies based on crop’s needs to maximise crop yield and reduce resource waste. Powered by a solenoid valve controller, Milesight offers a smart irrigation solution to improve crop productivity, crop quality and cost control through a wise water supply strategy.


Milesight offers the whole solution including soil moisture sensor; LoRaWAN® gateway which can cover the whole farm and connect to hundreds of end nodes; solenoid valve controller which can be connected to flow meter and control solenoid valve; and Milesight IoT Cloud which is forever free to use. With the help of smart controllers and sensors, the solution helps farmers to make data-based decisions to ensure the supply of the right amount of water at right time, which was previously difficult to achieve.
