HOBOnet System

The NEW HOBOnet Field Monitoring System from Onset provides a cost-effective and scalable solution for web-enabled monitoring of field conditions for applications such as crop management, research, and greenhouse operations.

Onset's wireless sensors are ready to deploy and easily link to the network, and data is accessed through the new version of HOBOlink®, Onset's innovative cloud-based software platform.


Key advantages:

  • Lowest cost-per-measurement point
  • Wide coverage with wireless mesh technology that can communicate through vegetation
  • Scalable, with up to 50 wireless sensors streaming back to a central, cloud-based weather station
  • Remote access to data and current conditions with a customizable dashboard for analysis
  • Alarm notifications when conditions reach user-set thresholds

Powerful Visualization in Real Time


More powerful than ever, Onset's cloud-based HOBOlink software makes it easy to view your data and manage your HOBOnet Field Monitoring System remotely. With new dashboards and Google Map integration, your field monitoring data is more accessible and more meaningful.


Complete system view via Google Map integration

Customizable dashboards across multiple measurements

Easily-configurable sensor alarm thresholds and notifications

Ability to select calculated parameters such as evapotranspiration


How Can the HOBOnet Field Monitoring System Help with Your Research?

With HOBOnet's wireless sensors you can monitor your research site without running cables.

Protect Your Crops and Reduce Costs


The HOBOnet Field Monitoring System helps growers reduce water use, save costs, improve crop quality, and protect against climate hazards such as frost and heat.


How Can the HOBOnet Field Monitoring System Help You Manage Your Farm?


  • Save Water: Use soil moisture sensors or calculated evapotranspiration to irrigate just when needed, saving water and energy costs
  • Manage Frost Protection: Use temperature sensors to send frost warning notifications to you and your workers, or to turn on frost protection systems
  • Reduce Pesticides/Fungicides: Track conditions such as temperature, humidity, and leaf wetness to determine the risk of disease or pest emergence for intelligent spraying 
  • Improve Crop Quality: Monitor conditions such as temperature, rain, light, and relative humidity to develop models to optimize irrigation and harvest timing
  • Meet OSHA Requirements for Safety: Use temperature sensors to trigger excessive-heat notifications to your farm managers, and maintain complete records of conditions
  • Manage Labor Costs: Monitor critical conditions on a single dashboard, so you can prioritize where to deploy workers


With HOBOnet's wireless sensors you can monitor field conditions without running cables that would interfere with your operations. 

Monitor Greenhouse Conditions with Real-Time Notifications


The HOBOnet Field Monitoring System provides data for crop and irrigation management, and helps growers protect plants with real-time notifications in case conditions reach user-set thresholds.


How Can the HOBOnet Field Monitoring System Help You Manage Your Greenhouse Operations?


  • Centralized Monitoring: Monitor all your greenhouses from your desktop or mobile device with Google Map and dashboard views
  • Protect Your Plants: Receive immediate notifications of system failures or if conditions reach user-set thresholds, so you can respond faster
  • Disease Management: Monitor conditions and adjust systems or apply controls as needed 
  • Irrigation Management: Cost-effectively monitor soil moisture at many points to optimize irrigation
  • Maturity Timing: Monitor growing conditions so that you can make adjustments as needed for optimal market timing
  • Reliable Coverage: 900 MHz wireless mesh self-healing technology provides the range and reliability needed to cover all your greenhouses. The network is solar- and battery-powered, so it continues to operate if the power fails


With HOBOnet's wireless sensors you can monitor your greenhouses without having to run cables around your facility.
