Soil Scout massively optimizes Water & Energy usage by providing permanent buried wireless monitoring. Understanding what’s happening under the ground is critical for many industries. Current solutions for measuring environmental data are primarily based on wired technology, which is often impractical or inefficient; or requires expensive & labour-intensive manual sampling. Soil Scout does what no one has done before: sending data signals out of the ground wirelessly, from much deeper than previously possible. The solution was originally developed with farming & agriculture in mind; and with the worldwide market for wireless agriculture sensors expected to reach almost US $3 billion by 2016 , the potential is great. Benefits can include the ability to save up to 20% on irrigation water usage, reduced fertilizer costs, and early problem detection. We are already receiving interest from the environmental, forestry, utilities, construction & sport sectors.

Soil Scout provides critical insight into data from deep below the surface wirelessly. Our small buried 'Scout' sensor transmits moisture, temperature and salinity in near real-time from up to 2 metres / 6 feet below the surface, for up to 20 years, maintenance free. Enabling 365x24 insight and profiling allows our customers to reduce water and energy use by up to 50%.
Multiple industry sectors are benefiting from the ability to easily and continuously monitor what is happening under the ground.
Understanding what’s happening under the ground is critical for many industries. Current solutions for measuring environmental data are primarily based on often-inefficient wired technology, or on expensive & labour-intensive manual sampling. Soil Scout provides critical insight into data from deep below the surface – wirelessly.
Through the creation of two patent-pending innovations, we have developed a small, cost-effective wireless sensor platform that depending on conditions, transmits near real-time data for up to 20 years, and at a depth of up to 2m (~6ft) underground: maintenance free. Now you can easily measure at the correct depth for your needs!
The solution was originally developed with farming & agriculture in mind, but multiple industry sectors are benefiting from the ability to easily and continuously monitor their own below-ground environments, regardless of season or weather conditions.
Benefits of the Soil Scout solution can include:
- Water and energy savings of up to 50%
- Decreased fertiliser loss
- Optimised soil conditions
- Reduced pollution
- Lower maintenance costs
- Increased land utilisation
