Pawel & Edward from Valarm went to Nebraska this spring to help the North Platte Natural Resources District (NPNRD) deploy more water flow and water usage monitoring stations! To do this water monitoring we deployed additional Valarm systems with the following:

We teamed up with Vistabeam (a local, long-range WISP) to securely connect the remote Valarm sensor monitors to the Valarm Tools Cloud. The water monitoring units are powered via solar panels and make the water flow sensor data available from anywhere in the world with an internet connection. In southwestern Nebraska the North Platte NRD monitors the aquifer and how much water is being used. In the past they’ve spent substantial time and money driving to thousands of water monitoring sites to manually read the meters once a year then input the water data into their Esri ArcGIS (Geographic Information System) platform.

Valarm sensor solutions remotely monitor this water flow and water usage information in real-time – saving lots of time and money. Additionally, if a pump or meter stops working or starts leaking then notifications won’t have to wait for the once a year check-up. These Valarm water monitor units are deployed at:

  • Agricultural sites
  • Feedlots
  • Feeds
  • Center pivot irrigation units
  • Fish farms
  • Any other location that needs remote environmental monitoring

Once the Valarm sensor data is uploaded to the Valarm Tools Cloud it’s available for mapping, graphing, download, and analysis. See this page for step-by-step guided video tutorials on how to connect your Valarm sensors and connector devices to the cloud.

Using Valarm APIs (e.g., JSON & CSV), all geo-enabled sensor data is available in real-time at any webpage or internet endpoint of your choice.

Below are a few more pictures from of this recent deployment in the field, we’re loving Nebraska more on each trip. Note that this is a next round / follow-up to a previous blog post for water flow and usage monitoring, which you can learn more about by clicking here.

We’re looking forward to more water and liquid monitoring in addition to thousands of other types of sensors we can monitor! You can get an idea of the Valarm compatible hardware, connector devices, and sensors available in the Valarm Hardware Shop at shop.valarm.net.
