Smart Barn Sensors Quick Look

Smart Barn serves the poultry, hog, crop, greenhouse and dairy industries, making it easy for you to monitor and protect your investments, no matter what you’re farming.

Below is a quick look at each of our sensors and their capabilities.

Temperature Sensor

Smart Barn wireless temperature sensors can be used to track the temperature in your barn, or send an alarm if the temperature gets too high. This is very important for poultry farms, because hens, pullets, layers, and turkeys can die quickly because of high temperatures. A temperature spike could also indicate that the ventilation has failed, and thousands of birds can suffocate within a short amount of time. Dairy bulk tanks also require precise monitoring, and we supply our sensors with a variety of custom probes that allow you to manage and track your dairy products. The permanent data record ensures regulatory compliance, and allows you to generate historical charts and reports.

0-500 Power/Voltage Sensor

Smart Barn’s 0-500 volt sensor is versatile, and can be used for a wide variety of applications. The power in your barn can be monitored, and alerts can be set depending on the voltage. If a power outage occurs, the sensor will send an alert and notify you immediately that there’s a problem. Smart Barn’s 0-500 volt sensor can also monitor generators, motors, and the operation of any other powered equipment. You can check Smart Barn’s data log to see if your generator ran its test, or monitor the operation of motors and augers on your grain dryer.

Door Open Closed sensor

Smart Barn’s wireless door open/closed sensor allows you to keep your farm secure. Install the door open/closed sensor and magnetic contact on the exterior doors of your facility, and you’ll receive an alert if someone breaks in after hours. If there’s a shop or garage nearby, you can mount the sensor on an overhead door, and receive an alert if the door has been opened.

Dry Contact sensor

Smart Barn’s dry contact sensor is multi-purpose, and lets you easily monitor any alarm or switch output. You can connect the dry contact sensor to relays, door contacts, motion sensor outputs, thermostat and controller alarms, and generator alarms.

Pulse counter

Smart Barn’s wireless pulse counter lets you monitor the outputs of water meters and power meters. Attach the sensor to the pulse output of any pulse water meter, or pulse kWh meter, and you’ll be able to track your power and water usage. You can also set an alert, and immediately receive a notification if a pipe bursts and the water usage is too high. You can track the amount of water you’ve used in your greenhouse, or in your irrigation system, and receive an alert if the system fails to operate at the right time.


All of these sensors are wirelessly monitored using a wireless cellular gateway. The data is uploaded to our cloud-based server, and you can view the status any time of the day or night. Smart Barn’s wireless sensors are a reliable, affordable solution for your monitoring needs.
