The SenseCAP Wireless Soil Moisture & Temperature Sensor measures soil volumetric water content (VWC) and soil temperature at the range of 0 ~ 100% (m³/m³) and -30 ~ 70C respectively. With a high-quality soil moisture and temperature probe, this IoT sensor features high precision and sensitivity regardless of soil variability, making it widely applicable in industrial scenarios such as water-saving irrigation, outdoor fields, greenhouses and more.
This device incorporates a built-in LoRa transmitter based on the SX1276 for long-range transmission, a 2-in-1 sensor, and a custom battery. It is specifically designed and optimized for use cases powering end devices by batteries for years. To minimize the power consumption, the device wakes up, transmits the collected soil moisture and temperature data to the LoRaWAN gateway, and then goes back to sleep.
Under the best of circumstances, the battery is expected to last for more than 6 years, depending on environmental factors and the data transmission intervals. Please kindly note that the default interval is once per hour
