Doug Stewart, Lichen Estate, Anderson Valley, Proprietor/Winegrower, "The temperature data this past week has been great. Having solid data on the upper and lower zones saved a bunch of water (hundreds of thousands of gallons in our first three frost events this year). Please know I very much appreciate your superb service and hope for your success on future systems." 3/24/13
Edgar Lantz, owner of Sam Brannan Vineyards, "I saved 60% on my water use in the first year.” 2009
You have a lot invested in your vineyards. Just like your financial portfolio you've got to monitor that investment. Camalie Networks can help. Whether you are a grower, an owner, a vineyard manager or even a winemaker you can benefit greatly from knowing exactly what is going on in the vineyard, in the air above it, in the canopy and in the ground below. Get a handle on the water in your soil and use only what you need where you need it. Our products not only monitor but also enable control of irrigation either by remote control or fully automatic soil moisture/ET based control. The system self documents its performance providing verification that your directives such as irrigation sets, have been carried out and resulted in the desired soil moisture levels. We have found that this technology can be a distinct differentiator when it comes to selling your product. Having a monitoring system shows your technological savvy and attention to detail in growing. Give us a call at 650-799-6571.
This subscription-free wireless monitoring and control technology brings precision control to growing at an affordable price for the first time. Compare our prices and you'll find our costs 1/2 to 1/3 of theirs. This price enables sampling at 2-3X higher density which makes precision farming practical for the first time. The system is scalable and extensible which means it can be adapted to use other sensors and provide customized interfaces and control using open source code that comes with the system.
Weather, soil moisture monitoring and valve actuation provide the capability to "set and forget" soil moisture levels. This new capability meets the requrements of California state law for large landscapes. See section 492.7 that states "Automatic irrigation controllers utilizing either evapotranspiration or soil moisture sensor data shall be required for irrigation scheduling in all irrigation systems. " Call us and get the full story.
2012 marks the 4th year Camalie Networks has been in business, now with over 200 stations at 10 major installations from Hollister to Hopland including Stage Coach Vineyards in the Napa Valley where 17 nodes measure soil moistures at 42 locations and ambient temps and humidities at 12 locations spread out across 1500 acres of vines.
Camalie Networks is a value added reseller of Memsic's eKo Pro wireless sensor network products and its own add ons and cusomizations supporting Napa and the California North Coast Region. Camalie Networks provides added value with its line of add-ons and upgrades developed at Camalie Networks including software, sensor and valve interfaces designed to enhance and extend the eKo Pro system's functionality. In late 2012 Camalie Networks embarked on development of an open architecture wireless agricultural network with costs roughly 1/3 of any currently available technology including eKo Pro. Camalie Networks is currently seeking participants for its alpha program for this system.
