Monitoring and alarm solutions for Livestock Farming

Monitor climate computers, air washing systems and automated feeders

These processes, whether in poultry houses, hatcheries or pigsties, are critical and can literally be a matter of life and death for the animals concerned. Good mechanical ventilation maintains adequate oxygen and the harmful gases are extracted via an air washer. This reduces the environmental impact.

Key technical systems such as automated feeders and climate computers control these critical processes. Aided by this modern style of livestock farming, our cattle farmers play an important role in our food chain. A safe and reliable alarm system gives them insight into those critical processes which, in turn, gives them more confidence and peace of mind.

  1. Reporting technical failures to the farmer's smartphone or pager
  2. Reporting power failures at the plant
  3. Switch alarms and/or sections on/off for cleaning or maintenance
  4. On-site alarm with a buzzer and flashing light
  5. Insurance companies recommend this solution

Do you still monitor your processes with an ...

... Octalarm-T or Severa Webmeter?

This dialler is maybe more than 15 years old and no longer guarantees a reliable alarm. Electronics are aging, the risk of failure increases and it is impossible to predict when the detector will fail. Waiting for this to happen will lead to a situation in which you will be temporarily without alarm and risk financial damage. That is of course not an option!

’It still works’ shouldn't be a reason to have your assets, with a value of many thousands or even millions, protected by equipment that may be 15 years old or even older.

What are the risks of old diallers?

... Octalarm-IP

As of January 2022, the 3G network in the Netherlands will NOT be supported by Dutch telecom providers. In the UK, Vodafone and EE have both announced that they will close their 3G network next year (2022) and BT Group has announced that 3G services will be phased off for all EE, BT Mobile and Plusnet customers by 2023. Our diallers have an automatic fallback to 2G. However, because all installations with a 3G GSM module fall back to the 2G network at the same time, the communication speed/coverage will decrease drastically. This may cause communication problems for installations with a 2G and 3G module.

In addition, the 2G network in the Netherlands will be discontinued in April 2025 as well. No official phasing out data has yet been released by UK providers such as BT, Vodafone, EE (BT), O2 and Three. According to news sources, a phase-off period from June 2023 to 2025 is mentioned. We recommend you to contact your provider for clarity in your 2G and 3G delivery guarantee. After the networks expire,

  1. alerts with the Octalarm-IP will then only be possible via analogue connection (PSTN) and fixed internet. The GSM versions of these diallers no longer work.
  2. All Severa's and Octalarm-T GSM versions will no longer work.

In order not to jeopardise the safety of your technical processes, these diallers must therefore be replaced (possibly prematurely) by Q1 of 2025 at the latest.

In order to avoid delivery problems due to a run on 4G modules during this period, we advise you to switch to solutions with a 4G LTE-Cat M1 module (4G for M2M) as soon as possible. We will be happy to advise you on choosing the right product.
