Remote monitoring for irrigation

Updated: Sep 10, 2019


Storing fresh water supplies on farms is important for ensuring productivity is maximised. Knowing exactly how much water you have in ponds, dams and tanks can be difficult to calculate and manage at the best of times. Add to the mix council consent compliance and it feels impossible.


Waterwatch provides a cost effective and time saving solution. Waterwatch sensors can be installed on tanks, dams, ponds, rivers and streams to monitor water levels and usage. Using our online platform or smartphone app, live measurements can be viewed to see exactly how much water you have as well as being able to track changes over time. Historical data can be exported to gain seasonal insight.



With environmental instability, monitoring water systems is becoming increasingly important. Secretary for regional economic development Fletcher Tabuteau stated "The water supply is becoming unpredictable in [New Zealand] , particularly during the summer months. Without it local businesses relying on water could be increasingly impacted, limiting their ability to operate and grow."

With all Waterwatch products, high level, low level and rapid change alarms can be configured to identify leaks, overflows and pump failures immediately, before valuable resources are wasted. All sensors can be viewed on one device and access can be shared with others.


Maximising the potential of irrigation, water management and effluent can boost productivity and profitability. Monitoring these assets is the first step in understanding how they operate and gaining maximum value from them.
