CaipoRain - Rain and Soil Monitoring System
CaipoRain is the smallest, most accurate and inexpensive rain and soil monitoring system. CaipoRain measures precipitation and uploads data on the web server. Data can also be downloaded directly to PC via standard USB plug. Internal flash memory allows storing data for up to 8 years.
To minimize the energy consumption, CaipoRain sends data to the web site only when precipitation intensity is changed. This makes CaipoRain perfect instrument for disaster monitoring and alarm system. It immediately alerts when precipitation reaches predefined threshold.
