FarmHQ: How It Works

FarmHQ instantly adds real-time remote monitoring and automatic pump shutdown to any irrigation reel or water pump with one simple installation you can do yourself.

FarmHQ consists of two key components:

  • A small device that can be retrofitted to any irrigation reel or pump.
  • A web-based application that can be used on any smartphone, tablet, or computer.

 

Once installed, FarmHQ constantly monitors the status and speed of your reel and pump: tracking run progress, watching for equipment failures, and letting you know when problems occur. When the reel stops retracting for any reason, FarmHQ sends a shutdown signal to the pump automatically. Our mobile app and online dashboard give you easy access to this status information and detailed irrigation records at the tap of a finger or the click of a button.

Yes. FarmHQ provides monitoring for reels and pumps regardless of whether or not they are paired to another device. However, to take advantage of our automatic shutdown feature, you must have FarmHQ on both the reel and the pump, and the two must be paired in the FarmHQ app.

Our FarmHQ devices and app provide huge savings on your farm. It lets you get updates on your reels in real time, so you know when a run is complete - and when it’s not. FarmHQ automatically stops water flow any time your reel stops moving. That prevents crop damage, saving water and reducing pumping costs. Better monitoring and control mean big savings.

 

It also means a lot less stress and better sleep. FarmHQ lets you check on your reel no matter where you are. You can get immediate notifications anytime something goes wrong with your equipment. Our automatic pump shutdown feature means you can take care of the problem when it’s convenient for you. Stop wondering what’s going on in your fields. FarmHQ keeps track of it for you.
