We build "smart scarecrows" so people can see how there food grows and help farmers track the weather. The device is solar powered and connected farm to cloud via cellular network. Internal sensors measure key weather points and take photos on an interval recording the seed to harvest story of plants. Devices are leased to clients and completely maintenance free with connection capabilities in over 125 countries.
