SenseCAP LoRaWAN Soil Moisture and Temperature Sensor

SenseCAP LoRaWAN Soil Moisture and Temperature Sensor




Wireless soil moisture and temperature sensor can help in automatic irrigation systems, greenhouse control, fine agriculture, soil monitoring, and other scenarios. Use this wireless LoRaWAN soil sensor to better manage the soil in a scientific and efficient way. 

S2104 wireless soil moisture and temperature are based on FDR technology with the advantages of simple, safe, fast, and accurate, long-term measurement, wide range, and simple calibration. It is a kind of soil moisture measurement instrument worth recommending.

Highlighted Features

  • Wide measuring range: it can detect temperature range from -40 to +80 °C, soil moisture range from 0 to 100%

  • Industrial design: -40 ~ 85℃ operating temperature and IP66 rating, suitable for indoor, outdoor, and harsh environments such as high UV exposure, heavy rain, dusty conditions, etc.

  • Bluetooth configuration in 1 min: scan the QR code on the device and finish the configuration work in just a few clicks

  • Easily get data, no clunky software interfaces: smooth data flow to cloud servers or other IoT data management platforms

  • Visualize data and monitor with SenseCAP Mate APP: you can set threshold values (just focus on the data you need to take action for), time intervals (improve the battery efficiency), and set alarms if data is out of the safe range.

  • LoRaWAN wireless transmission: ultra-low power consumption to support Max.10 years of battery life and ultra-wide-transmission range of 2km in urban scenes and 10km in line-of-sight scenes

  • Supported by Worldwide LoRaWAN Networks: can be used with different types of LoRaWAN gateways and is compatible with multiple LoRaWAN Network Servers (Helium, TTN) to enable our sensor quickly join your current LoRaWAN networks



Scan-and-Play Simplicity, Easy Configuration via Bluetooth in Just 1 min

Built-in Bluetooth avoids time-consuming configuration works to bring no code experience to individuals with less or no technical background to quickly get started with CO2, temperature, and humidity sensing detection.

Minimal Maintenance Cost: power-conscious battery, IP66 rugged enclosure, and Bluetooth for remote data acquisition and device management

This sensor can cover a transmission range of 2km in urban scenes and 10km in line-of-sight scenes while keeping the transmission process low power to support years of usage. Remote monitoring can also benefit large-scale deployment, it gives you the biggest efficiency by saving time and manual labor needed to deploy and manage devices. Together with a replaceable battery that supports Max.10 years of usage and an industrial IP66 enclosure, it meets the need for LoRaWAN-based IoT Solutions in the real world.

Powerful SenseCAP Mate App: data visualization and remote device management

Compatibility with multiple networks and platforms: easily integrates with existing LoRaWAN networks

We have an article in Learn to introduce the separate network architecture when you choose different LoRaWAN network servers and platforms.

How to Select Gateway:

LoRaWAN network coverage is required when using sensors, there are two LoRaWAN network options.

Option 1: Sensors work in areas covered by Helium Network(Check on Helium Explore Map).|
Option 2: Sensors work in a standard LoRaWAN network, like The Things Network, Loriot, Chirpstack, etc.

SenseCAP Performance Guarantee: robustness and stability

Tips: The battery is a standard Li-SOCl2 battery (type: ER34615) that can purchase from Amazon and other platforms.

Multi-Scenario Application

  • Agriculture Irrigation

Accurate monitoring of soil moisture in the depth of soil is essential for efficient and effective agricultural irrigation techniques. Thus, soil temperature and moisture sensors can help improve yields by preventing plant stress days. A suitable percentage of soil moisture also keeps nutrients in the root zone.

  • Greenhouse and Garden Planting

Soil moisture and temperature are highly related to farm productivity. Too little moisture can lead to yield loss and plant mortality. Too much can lead to root disease and water waste. Using the S2104 soil temperature and humidity sensor can help you gain control of your greenhouse root zone environment through the accurate digital display on your phone and laptop.

  • Turf and Lawn Management

The successful implementation of soil moisture and temperature monitoring is also applied to turf/lawn management. Soil moisture and temperature sensor can help turf managers to achieve actual savings and benefits through scientific and accurate analysis of the wetness of turf and lawn.

  • Drought Monitoring

Regional droughts can severely impact economies and even lead to famine in some parts of the world. Soil moisture is critical to understanding the interactions between the atmosphere and the earth's surface. Accurately knowing soil temperature and humidity sensors can help predict and characterize harmful droughts.
