Sensefarm AB started as a project within the consultancy firm Videocent AB 2011. Videocent helped a major European sugar producer with mobile applications and web-technologies for their contracted farmers at that time. When asked if it was possible to use a mobile phone to measure temperatures in sugar beet piles we simply said yes, researched the market, contacted a few companies who could provide parts of the needed technology and developed some on our own. We started cooperating with local farmers associations and researchers at the local agricultural university and this resulted in more products. Eventually, it was time to separate the consultancy and product businesses and 2013 Sensefarm AB was started.
From 1-wire and gsm we have now moved to LoRaWAN-technology.
