How it works

The Orion Data Network is a system of active Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) and GPS technologies combined with tags, gateways and IoT-enabled sensors. The covert, weatherproof tags attach to vehicles, equipment, gates, fencing and walls, with specially designed collars and boluses for livestock. The gateway plugs into your farmhouse for network coverage of around 5-7km, giving you real-time alerts on the location and security of your farm assets, even in the most remote parts of your farm.

Real-time visibility and farm management come together in the Orion Data Network.

Transform your agricultural management.

Fast and effective reactions

Think of the money you could save by the early detection of pneumonia, bovine viral diarrhoea virus (BVD) and bovine respiratory disease (BRD)—long before your herd begins to show outward symptoms?

Placed in the rumen of cattle, Smarter Technologies’ bolus provides early notifications of disease challenges and can be used as a precise management tool to help detect breeding and performance benefits.

The rumen bolus is designed to provide continuous and reliable temperature measurement of the rumen. All data is transmitted automatically, first to the gateway, and then to a cloud-based system which allows farmers, vets and scientists to process the information and deal with unexpected issues.

Our rumen bolus allows farmers:

  • To track and monitor the temperature of every animal in the herd.
  • To detect diseases early on.
  • To assess stress factors such as housing density, overheating, and barrier feed-point overcrowding.

“Having seen the temperature was lower than normal for a few hours in cow 109 pen 6, I warned the guys on site that calving may be imminent. She calved later that day… 100% success rate! ”

GPS Tags

Small, battery-powered device which requires minimal installation and will last up to four years before it requires a battery change. The device is ideal for moveable assets such as farm machinery and trailers. The tag will notify you of unlawful movements via text and email.

Tractor Guidance GPS Tags

Criminals have wised up to the installation of GPS trackers on tractors and have been known to remove them to prevent tracking and recovery. Our tractor tags will sense any tampering or removal of GPS tractor tags and send an instant alert to your device.

Perimeter Protection

Protect your farm from trespassers. Our light beam sensors are battery-powered and easy to deploy, protecting gateway openings or your whole perimeter. You’ll get instant alerts via SMS and email.

CCTV

Our cameras are easy to install and can operate via 3/4G sim cards or WiFi. Get alerts and view the incident via the Smarter Technologies’ camera app.

Electric Fence Theft Monitoring

Ensure that you can act to save any livestock that may no longer be contained. Receive an alert if an electric fence is powered down or stolen.

Monitoring and Recovery

Our monitoring and recovery service has a 90% + success rate of returning stolen assets.

Motion Sensors

Our motion sensors are designed to monitor and notify you of any unauthorised movement of fixed or mobile assets.

Pressure Pads

Install our pressure pads for peace of mind when storing feed, fertiliser and machinery in open and unsecured locations. You’ll be notified by SMS or email if an item is moved.

Door/Gate Sensors

Easy-to-install, wire-free, battery-powered sensors that attach to a door or gate to notify you instantly via SMS and email when unauthorised personnel or potential intruders enter.

Safety Monitoring

Our smart sensors give you real-time data on variable factors such as temperature; location; pressure; tilt; movement; moisture; toxicity; unauthorised entry; shock and impact; gas, solid and liquid levels and more.

Water/Fuel Level

Remotely monitor and manage fuel and water levels within tanks. Our battery-powered sensors can be installed in minutes, giving you real-time visibility on tank levels on your customised dashboard. You’ll also be sent notifications when critical levels are reached.

Temperature/Humidity

Monitor temperature and humidity on your farm using our smart sensors that report into your customised web-based monitoring dashboard. Set low- and high-level thresholds to alert of potential temperature issues.

Noxious Gases

Our sensors monitor levels of different gases which could be potentially harmful to humans and livestock. Set thresholds and be notified via SMS and email if dangerous gases accumulate.

PH Levels

Sub-optimal PH levels can be very harmful to livestock. Our sensors notify users of high pH levels via SMS and email. View averages on a daily and weekly basis via your web-based management dashboard.

Smoke Detectors

Fire can devastate a farm or home. Our battery-powered smoke detection warns you of smoke buildup, allowing you to react quickly to evacuate people, livestock, assets and equipment.
