Sensors and Devices
Installing sensors to collect data from your environment.
Farmdeck was founded in Australia in 2016 by a team of farmers and engineers coming from Outcomex, a successful technology company operating in Australia since 2006. A few years ago, the team decided to combine their two passions, technology and farming, to help other farmers like them increase their efficiency while reducing their costs. Since the foundation of Farmdeck, Outcomex ensures that all features and sensors are field tested at their testing farm site located in Bathurst NSW, Australia.
Our team is composed of over 90 employees based across Australia and provides installation and support services nationally. We are very proud to have a dedicated farm testing facility, which gives us a unique perspective on how Farmdeck can help our customers.
Farmdeck is different from most other AgTech solutions because it provides an all-in-one offering that includes the sensors, the network connectivity and the Farmdeck application available online or downloadable on any android and ios devices. Having the expertise to take you through all the phases of an agriculture IoT project allows us to offer tailored solutions as well as direct support in case of problems with any of the components.
Farmdeck provides a private network solely for farmers and all data is kept within Australia, unlike various other offerings where data is collected by sensors in Australia, but then processed overseas and sent back for visualisation in Australia, allowing overseas providers to mine and get insights into the data. With Farmdeck, the data is owned by the farmer and not made available to any other organisation without prior consent by the farmer.
We follow a strict quality assurance program for the IoT sensors; analysing factors such as their range, sensitivity, battery life, security, manufacturing quality, dust and waterproofing, and ease of integration. Every sensor recommended in Farmdeck has been selected following this program which ensures they are secure and follow the best practice design principles.
Through the technology company Outcomex, our organisation has over 3 decades of experience in networking technologies and security, which form an integral part of the underlying architecture required for IoT networks. Our expertise is a great advantage when deploying solutions in remote areas with low connectivity and limited power options.
