Circle ScoutFor growers who prefer do-it-yourself options, Net Irrigate is excited to announce the launch of their new brand, CircleScout.  As the industry’s first self-installable remote monitoring product, CircleScout eliminates the need for professional installation generally associated with high-volatage pivot irrigation systems.

In fact, its simplicity is unprecedented.  The new system is completely wireless.  A palm-sized piece of hardware can be magnetically attached to any intermediate tower on the pivot.  It is self-powered and can intelligently detect the motion patterns of a pivot to offer real-time notifications.  Complete the DIY process with a user-friendly mobile app.

“We’re proud of this technical innovation and the fact that it fosters an entirely new category of pivot monitoring solutions,” said Eddie DeSalle, CEO of Net Irrigate. “CircleScout is the industry’s first direct-to-pivot product, paving the way for the do-it-yourself farmer. Today, the majority of pivots still remain unconnected due to the complexity of existing solutions and labor bottlenecks. However, CircleScout finally offers farmers the opportunity to safely take their equipment installation into their own hands.”

Developed by Net Irrigate—the creators of the agriculture industry’s best-selling patented copper theft alarm, WireRat—CircleScout is presently available for lease at the introductory price of $119 a year to reflect an economic alternative to upfront capital expenditures associated with telemetry hardware. Each CircleScout is fully warranted with every lease.
