Designing SensorsGardening

Welcome to the Biotasphere

Intro to BiotaNet

Have you ever wondered how your garden responds to microbes in the soil, moisture, fertilizers, and fugi ?  Would you like to be able to monitor these soil conditions to produce the greatest health in your plants? Would you like to be able to respond to threats from disease and insects in a more timely fashion?     BiotaNet is developing products to help you do just that!  

Our goal is to develop sensors with long range (LoRa) capabilities which will transmit data about soil conditions and plant life to a receiver up to a kilometer away. This data will then be accessible through mobile phone apps and desktop software; helping you to manage your garden, vineyard, or orchard.

We are also developing a community of “makers” who, through collaborative invention, will create new uses for our sensors, including things like monitoring bee populations and other pollinators through the frequency of their wing vibrations.

Are you interested in being either a user or developer? Become part of our community, investigating the biotasphere!
