FARMING smarter is made easier with the range of mySmart Farm data collection and decision-making tools.
We’re using IoT to collect data to help us make informed decisions about our livestock, water and asset management, security and biosecurity.
MySmart Farm works using Internet of Things (IoT), with sensors around farms to monitor livestock and water, to allow farmers to identify issues and improve management based on data collected.
The Sydney-based business made its AgQuip debut this year, with an interactive display of sensors that can be used on farms, including on water tanks to monitor levels and identify any leaks, gates for security, and remote weather stations.
There was also a display of walk over weighing systems which can be used at watering points or in rotational grazing systems to monitor animal performance and identify any health issues.
MySmart is an Australian company at the forefront of creating intelligent environments, and has been creating smart solutions in the building and hotel industries for the past 19 years, and expanded into agriculture about three years ago.
The business was established to develop low cost, effective technology solutions, with sensors used to monitor farm assets and collect data, and also allowing producers to automate farm practices, such as using sensors on water tanks to pump water remotely, or as it reaches a specific level.
MySmart Farm now has a vineyard, olive groves and cattle at Pokolbin, in the Hunter Valley, and runs cattle at another property at Bulahdelah on the Mid North Coast. All mySmart Farm sensors are trialled at the 280-hectare research and development farm Silverdale 1 on the outskirts of Sydney.
“We’re using IoT to collect data to help us make informed decisions about our livestock, water and asset management, security and biosecurity,” managing director Scott Warren said.
“This is technology that solves problems, because our sensors collect regular, accurate data and create real-time alerts to issues on the property.”
