We have build in a global simcard in each Spiio sensor. Your data is automatically transmitted via the strongest network operators in your area/country. In the US we use both Verizon, T-mobile and AT&T and Sprint. See our global coverage here.
You can access your data 24/7 through Spiio's browser based app via app.spiio.com Bookmark this link for quick access to your Spiio data.
- The soil moisture sensor data is a capacitive sensor measuring the volumetric water content in the substrate (%VWC)
The temperature sensor effectively measures in-ground temperatur when below grade and air temp when above grade.
The salinity sensor measures the Electrical Conductivity (EC) in the substrate.
The light sensor measures LUX or Foot Candle values when placed above ground.
The wireless Spiio sensor collects data every hour and transmits data 3-5 times a day as a default. You can customize and adjust when you want data according to your workday and routines.
Your data is securely stored on Google Cloud servers. We are taking all precautions and measures to secure and backup your data continuously so it is safe with us. You can always. download your data in our app on an ongoing basis.
The estimated average lifetime of a Spiio is 5 years. Now that might vary due to environmental conditions such as network strength, how deep it is buried and how often you would like data. In fact, you don't have to worry about this as we offer a lifetime warranty on the battery, which means that we will ship you a free replacement when the battery is dead.
The best way to look at this is that your Spiio connects like your cellphone via cellphone towers. In fact, it is like putting a cellphone in the ground. This cellphone service is already built into your Spiio so you don't have to anything else than turning it on. Also, we offer our service in more than 200 countries globally.
Your data is yours and always accessible via our web-based app: app.spiio.com You can download you data or build integrations with our API. Your entire history of data is available as long as your subscription is active.
Spiio's wireless sensor
The Spiio wireless sensor has four sensors in one wireless device:
- Soil moisture sensor
- Temperature sensor
- Salinity sensor
- Light sensor
We recommend placing 1-2 sensors per green as a standard in order to get a wide data set from all microclimates on your course.
Alternatively, placing 6-8 around your course will allow you to capture specific microclimates and reference greens that you can benchmark performance from.
We also recommend using Spiio for fairway irrigation monitoring.
The best way to think about this is that your Spiio sensor takes a spot measurement in the near proximity to where it is placed. You would ideally choose reference spots that represents multiple areas or an either dry, average or wet reference greens.
The battery is rated for five years of standard usage with five customized data transmissions per day. Now, conditions and cell service varies a lot from place to place so this is a guide. When battery runs out, Spiio will send you a completely FREE new Spiio sensor as long as you are still subscribed to the Spiio Service.
This might vary significantly according to network coverage, but the rule of thumb is that the Spiio sensor can be installed at a max depth of 2 feet (50cm). There's no guarantee we can go this deep as it requires good cell service in your area.
This Spiio wireless sensor has the highest IP ratings on the market: IP-68 and IP-69K.
In fact we have gone way beyond these global certification standards; accelerated lifetime tests show that the Spiio can last 20+ years in the ground.
