Get clear visibility into your ranch water wherever you are
No more trekking out to manually collect the insight you need. With a simple install, (unbox, set-up, activate) you can receive reliable, low-cost data about your critical ranch water infrastructure — giving you peace of mind not to mention a more efficient and sustainable operation. Yes, it even works in far, remote areas with limited connectivity.
Producers, we hear you
You rely on a complex water system to keep your operation moving. But natural water can be scarce, and you don’t want to have to worry about managing the pumps, troughs, pipes, or whatever you use to move water. You live it day in and day out.
On top of everything else, you have to check water fluctuations daily—and manually, at that—which increases both labor and fuel costs. And let’s face it: that method doesn’t really let you stay ahead of potential issues, does it?
So here's how we can help
It’s time to take back your ranch from the wondering about water. The water level monitoring solution from FreeWave measures the depth of water in any tank, river, dam, bore hole or pumping station—with low-cost satellite connectivity in remote areas, including those with limited or no connectivity.
By receiving early warning notifications, you can easily monitor things like: cattle use of troughs, water leaks, pump failures, water intake and availability, soil moisture, animal health and welfare, and workplace safety.
Best part? You can deploy it quickly and easily without having to worry about a costly, long implementation or set-up. Plus, it comes with an on-board battery for uninterrupted operation, no matter the weather conditions.
The data doesn’t go directly from the equipment to your phone. The Water
Level Monitor routes the data to FreeWave servers via satellite where it’s stored
and accessed via your device or computer just like any other website.
The Bluetooth connection can serve two purposes. It can connect to Bluetooth
enabled sensors and/or it can connect to another FreeWave satellite-enabled
gateway if the Tank Level Monitor is deployed in an area that cannot access the
Measurements are taken every fifteen minutes and logged using onboard
memory in the gateway. Every hour (satellite coverage dependent) these
measurements are transmitted back to the cloud platform for processing, resulting
in near-real-time alerts and trend reporting to help you identify changes in the
environment being monitored.
The sensor is supplied as two cables connected by a junction box: a sensor cable
and a signal cable. The length of the sensor refers to the length of the sensor cable
(between junction box and pressure sensor). The sensor (sensor cable) can be
ordered at pre-built lengths of 3M, 5M, and 10M. Let us know if there are needs
beyond these lengths. The sensor cable is calibrated to the specific length by the
supplier. It cannot be cut into a shorter length when a shorter sensor cable is
There are several factors to consider for cold climates where temperatures
regularly fall below 0 C / 32 F. We can discuss options to consider in cold climates,

The Tank Level Monitor is made and tested in the United States in our Boulder, CO headquarters facility.
