Smart Water

Agricultural Irrigation – like other potential water-saving applications – is an essential component of sustainable development.

The Problem
One of the most common problems with farm watering systems is irrigation scheduling. Irrigation scheduling is simply answering the questions “When do I water?” and “How long do I water?”.
Starting an irrigation cycle too early and/or running an irrigation cycle too long is considered over-watering. This not only leads to more expense and water wastage, but it can also cause crop damage if done on a prolonged basis.
Likewise, starting an irrigation cycle too late or not running the system for a long enough period of time, is considered under-watering and can cause reduced yields and poor crop quality.
The Solution
The STREGA LoRaWAN time-controlled emitter helps farmers to simplify their installation, by:
– providing a limited number of components
– long-distance operation capability, and
– appropriate scheduling.


The STREGA LoRa wireless smart Emitter can not only open or close your valves from kilometres away: it can directly embed the necessary irrigation schedules, without even having to communicate with the gateway/concentrator or your platform.

Daily scheduled schemes with start periods and length can be uploaded directly into the emitter’s memory – its processing capability and the real-time clock will take care of the rest.

Strega have also used the same technology to start your remote pump – connected to a bi-stable relay, the STREGA LoRa wireless smart Emitter will operate your pump at the right moment. It is designed to perfectly synchronise with the status of your valves, to pressurise your pipes only when needed.

You have no easy access to power at the pumping spot? Your pump is running on a genset? No problem – the STREGA LoRa wireless smart Emitter will trigger the start/stop function of your generator accordingly.
