What is LoRa and why do I need a gateway?

LoRa stands for Long Range and is a low power long range wireless connection that allows Verdmo Pro to work over much further distances than WiFi or other usual wireless technologies. Because it is a different wireless technology it requires a gateway (router) in order to connect to your Verdmo Pro to your dashboard. You only need one gateway to handle all of you Verdmo Pro's as long as they are within wireless range of the gateway.

How many Verdmo Pro's do I need?

This depends on where you are using your Verdmo Pro's. If you are using them in a neighbourhood, then we would recommend one per location and utilizing the additional sensors that can be added when ordering to monitor different areas of the yard. If you are using it in a large field we would recommend several Verdmo Pro's, one in each location you want to monitor because the distance between them would be further. If you need help in planning how many Verdmo Pro's you need please contact us below or at pro@verdmo.com.

How far will my Verdmo Pro work?

Verdmo Pro uses WiFi, LoRa or Cellular connection. WiFi range will vary based on a number of factors such as obstructions. Average WiFi connection is around 100-150feet, you may achieve further or shorter range. We do not guarantee WiFi connection distance. LoRa's range depends on the environment, urban locations will have a shorter range than rural locations. You should be able to achieve a range of at least 1mile (1.6kms) with your LoRa setup, but a much longer range is possible. For cellular connection you need to be within a coverage range. Please contact us to discuss of your location is covered. Both versions can be buried under the ground to a specific depth.

How many sensors can be connected to one Verdmo Pro?

You can order up to 5 soil sensors with Verdmo Pro SOIL and up to 3 soil sensors with Verdmo Pro COMPLETE. This means you can measure soil moisture, salinity and temperature in 5 or 3 different locations. Each standard sensor comes with a 5 foot connection. To extend the length of a sensor please contact us, or order a Flex sensor which allows for wire extensions to be added on site.

Do I need to order anything else for Verdmo Pro to work?

When ordering Verdmo Pro with LoRa you will need to also order a Verdmo LoRa Gateway. You will only need to order one Gateway even if you order multiple Verdmo Pro's, as long as they are within range. For example you could have five Verdmo Pro's all within range of your LoRa gateway, and you would only need one Gateway for them all to function. You may also need to order extension wires depending on how you plan on setting up your Verdmo Pro. Contact us to discuss.

What's the difference between the Basic, Plus and Pro subscription?

Each level of subscription offers you different features on your dashboard, different date retention times, different connection types, and different warranty terms. You can choose what option works best for your needs, and you can upgrade or downgrade at anytime just by contacting us. Find out more information about the differences here, or contact us to discuss what would work best for you.

Why do I need to pay for a subscription?

Verdmo Pro requires a subscription so that we can continue to provide you with high quality data that will continue to improve over time. Verdmo Pro's dashboard gives you more information and more flexibility than a standard app. Find out what you get in your subscription here.

Does Verdmo Pro connect to any other services?

We will have an API available at launch which will be available at certain subscription levels. We also allow unlimited webhook connections so you can easily trigger actions on any service that has an API and allows such connections.
