DPIRD research officer John Paul Collins examines a new automated weather station at the Katanning Research Facility, installed as part of the department’s ag-tech upgrade.

The IoT network specialist, which began its partnership with Enzen in the summer of 2019, will be installing and maintaining a LoRaWAN network and IoT sensors at two research facilities run by the Western Australian Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development (DPIRD).

The IoT solutions at the Katanning and Merredin sites will cover sheep tracking, grain level sensing, grain silo temperature and humidity, fuel and water tank levels, gate opening and closing, soil moisture, worker safety trackers, weather stations, water flow and irrigation control.

Rob Zagarella, NNNCo Founder and CEO, said: “The project is designed to remove cost and risk and enable farmers to more easily access the latest technology for their operations.

“Providing connectivity through our open carrier-grade LoRaWAN network and N2N-DL data platform gives DPIRD, and in turn farmers, access to a global ecosystem of IoT devices and solutions. This open system has the potential to accelerate adoption of IoT in Australian agriculture for the benefit of the whole industry.”
