Environmental Sensors

Environmental sensors are small, eco-friendly devices enabling farmers to monitor weather, water, irradiation, and soil moisture levels to improve field management and prevent crop and plant disease.

As concerns about Climate Change keep rising, science and technology are committed to finding new solutions that can help tackle pollution levels, water and energy shortage and global warming.

The advancement in IoT technologies represents a unique opportunity to drive actions to help keep our planet healthier and safer and to realize Smart Farming. Thus, systems that monitor the environmental parameters lead to the collection and analysis of a whole set of data which can be used for farming, energy saving, water and irrigation management.

Embedded in the ground or placed under water, sensors collect data from the environment around them and use it to alert farmers to specific weather or soil conditions which might impact crops.

Stetel’s sensors provide farmers and botanical gardens with first class solutions to support agriculture.

Placed in the water, Stetel Water Monitoring Sensors monitor water eutrophication in lakes and closed water basins, detecting the percentage of nutrients in water and ensuring proper re-oxygenation.
Stetel’s Weather Monitoring Sensors check temperature, climate and plant status and combine data to identify conditions that precede the outbreak of crop and plant diseases.

How do Water Monitoring Sensors work?

Place the Water Sensor
on floating devices
in closed water basins

The water sensor connects
to solar panels, probes
and actuators
for reoxygenation 

The back-end collects
and analyses data 
from controlled components

If the water sensor 
detects an issue,
an alarm is sent
to the back office

How do Weather Monitoring Sensors work?

A suite of sensors
checking weather conditions
 is placed
on soil

Another suite of weather sensors
checks plant conditions
(humidity of the ground)

Weather sensors
collect and combine data
to assess wheather conditions

An alarm is sent
if the weather conditions
favour disease outbreaks

What can I use Environmental Sensors for?

Sensors can be used on plenty of occasions, in order to facilitate and support Smart Farming and Sustainable Agriculture:

  • Monitor water conditions and re-oxygenation levels;
  • Monitor weather conditions to prevent pest and disease outbreaks;
  • Monitor soil and plant humidity to ensure proper irrigation;
  • Monitor air and water pollution level;
  • Improve water management and irrigation of the land.
