About the App
AgSmarts FNS was our first experience to get ourselves skilled at IoT implementation, work with sensors & bluetooth. The agenda was to get lower the operational expenses of farmers and optimise crop yields. We had a firm plan to use Bluetooth to connect field-based, internet-enabled sensor and controller networks gave unprecedented crop specific, predictive recommendations, and automated control through mobile apps.
Internet of Things
AgSmarts had the hardware which could capture the soil moisture and sunlight intensity. Vrinda helped them to log the data to the IoT cloud at regular intervals which can be a data source for the analytics engine. We helped hardware team on how the BLE module could be configured by the user by setting the Customer ID from the app.
The app acted as a main user facing utility. The farmer would also have the provision to find out the crop, temperature, latitude & longitude. In essence, it would be a one-stop information desk for the farmer about his agriculture land.. Vrinda team interacted very closely with the client during design phase which had multiple iterations based on user feedback.

Plug & Play support
This application is used to easily monitor and configure the AgSmarts FNS. Crop consultants, producers and any user can use the app to monitor all AgSmarts FNS devices installed on their fields. There is no pairing required. No subscription required. When the app first starts, it searches and retrieves all AgSmarts FNS sensors within range. Once a sensor is selected the device can be monitored for real time information that is relative to the crop grown. Easy configuration allows for settings to be adjusted from your phone without having to drag a laptop into the field. The application is able to retrieve the last 14 days of data from the AgSmarts FNS device and display it in a easy to review graph. This data can be saved for review later when not connected.
The application will not work without an AgSmarts FNS device.
