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 if 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 LoRa connectivity. 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. 

How many sensors can be connected to one Verdmo Pro?

Verdmo Pro allows you to order one unit with up to 5 separate sensors. This means you can measure soil moisture, salinity and temperature in 5 different locations. Each sensor comes with a 5 foot connection, but you can order longer connections separately here.

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

When ordering Verdmo Pro 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.

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

The Basic subscription provides you with access to your own Verdmo Pro dashboard and on going updates in the future. The Pro subscription gives you the same access, but also includes additional dashboard options, free battery replacements (shipping fee may apply) when required, and on going express warranty which means Verdmo will ship a replacement unit to replace any issues right away for as long as the subscription is up to date.  

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.

Does Verdmo Pro connect to any other services?

We will have an API available at launch and will be adding more connection options soon after. All of these will be included in your subscription fee.
