Mote Net has a range of sensors for on-farm monitoring by long-range wireless data collection. Our sensors monitor farm security, water level measurement and asset GPS tracking.
The system provides farmers with time and money savings, improved farm security and peace of mind.

Our Solutions

We have developed a number of sensor modules that address some of the most common issues facing farmers today:

  • Farm security
    • A gate open/closed detector that provides an email and/or SMS alert on the gate opening.
    • A passive infrared (PIR) motion detector that provides an email and/or SMS alert on motion detected.
  • Water for stock or irrigation
    • A tank or trough level detector that provides an email and/or SMS alert on low water level.
  • Asset GPS tracking
    • A solar powered tracker module that provides a continuous position update for a mobile asset (e.g. tractor) to an online map and an email and/or SMS alert if the asset leaves the property.

Who We Are

He graduated from the University of Western Australia with a Bachelor’s degree in Electrical and Electronics Engineering and is now pursuing a Masters of Commerce at Curtin University. His main focus is on the commercialization and business development of Mote Net.

LoRaWAN Technology

Our technology uses a long-range wireless system known as LoRaWAN (Long Range Wide Area Network), it is a network protocol based on a new wireless technology to communicate up to 15 km in outdoor locations. This technology allows for a low cost way to collect and display remote data. The protocol is a global standard, it is encrypted and highly secure. You can find out more about this technology here:

You will need reliable mobile phone network coverage over some part of your farm for our system to be viable.

Our Services

Mote Net is currently focused at delivery of its Smart Farm System to WA farmers.

We also have diverse skills in other applications for LoRaWAN wireless communication, including sensor development, gateway design, LoRa middleware, backend and website development.

Please contact us if you have a relevant application that our skills might be you able to assist you with.
