How Farmbot unlocks connectivity options for primary producers

Primary producers around Australia often find that a roadblock for adopting digital technology on-farm is connectivity. To combat this issue Farmbot has partnered with leaders in Cellular and Satellite connectivity to ensure every location in Australia, from the edges of the Tanami Desert to the Great Australian Bight can benefit from using remote water monitoring solutions.

To make this happen Farmbot has partnered with telecommunication and satellite leaders, Telstra, Inmarsat and Pivotel to connect farmers and drive forward a more productive and profitable industry.

Farmbot’s new product, the Duplex Satellite Monitor and Camera, is powered by Inmarsat’s IsatData Pro (IDP) service. Enabling two-way messaging via satellite, elevating the Farmbot platform from a monitoring solution to a management solution. The Duplex Satellite Monitor forms the backbone of a connected farm ecosystem, enabling farmers to take an image all without physically changing locations, saving time, money and enabling more focus on other matters.
