To purchase our Stoock multi-sensor you only need to request a quote on our website and/or contact our partner network HERE.
One of the main advantages of purchasing our product is that you don’t need to invest in your own weather station. With our solution, you will have immediate access to more than 250.000 weather stations available all around the world. As soon as you define your land in our app, you’ll get access to the […]
The data from your nearest weather station will give you the most accurate available information about your land. However, it is not Agroop’s responsibility to ensure the maintenance and proper functioning of the station.
Yes, you can install it yourself. Stoock was made to be easily installed, without the support from a technical team on site. Read our manual HERE.
To install the Stoock, you need to drill a hole in the soil with the same length as the sensor, remove a sample from the soil, mix it with water in a bucket and put it back into the hole. Place the sensor in the hole, guide the solar panel towards South if you’re in […]
To turn the Stoock on, just click the upper left side button with the ON/OFF symbol. Wait 5 seconds until a sound is heard and the green led light turns on.
After the sensor has been installed, you must create your account in our platform, Agroop Cooperation. Just go to www.agroop.net and click “Register”. Then, you can create your account with all the information about your farm. If you need help, watch these tutorials or contact Agroop or one of our partners.
The device has a 1 (one) year warranty starting on the day of purchase. More information here.
The number of sensors per farm depends on several factors, like the homogeneity of the land, the crops and the watering sectors. If you want a custom budget, just contact us at (+351) 214 240 126 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The sensor communicates via GPRS and it comes with a M2M SIM Global card.
No, the value is included in Agroop Cooperation’s Yearly Software Fee.
No, the system has a card that can support any network.
If it is a one-time issue, the sensor will record the date. In case the sensor never got any network and is turned off, it will be impossible to access the data.
No, however, we always recommend specialized technical support. Our platform’s recommendations are only a suggestion meant to support the farmer – a specialized human validation is always needed.
Yes, Agroop complies with data protection laws. Your data is protected.
Stoock has been subjected to several tests and we estimate that the battery lasts about 3 years.
At the moment, we have our sensors monitoring over 40 crops. There are no limitations, crop-wise, for the sensor, however, i tis not yet adapted to hydroponics systems. They have been used in both outside farms and greenhouses, and in both permanent and temporary crops.
Although this service is not provided by Agroop, you can purchase this kind of insurance with insurance companies we have agreements with.
The insurance company will give you a quote based on the number of sensors you have.
It depends on the irrigation system that you have. An analysis to understand the possibility of integration would have to be made.
No, at the moment you can only use Agroop Cooperation with Stoock.
Our sensors are robust and low-maintenance. However, if they do need it (such as to replace batteries), Agroop will give you documents to guarantee the Stoock’s proper functioning. You could also acquire an extra hardware support service from one of our partners.
23 – In tal crops, like maize, if the sensor isn’t exposed to the sun, can the battery still charge?
Yes, Agroop has several sensors installed in such crops or places in the shade and the battey still charges.
Stoock is very portable. We recommend you remove it from the soil, turn it off by pressing the ON/OFFA button for 5 seconds and store it properly. In the next season or year, it should be ready to be installed again.
25 – If I already have sensors and want to purchase yours, can I see the data from all my sensors in your app?
No, for now we only show the Stoock’s data, as far as sensors go.
Capacitive sensors – like our Stoock – are devices that receive and respond to chemical/physical stimuli or signals. This technology is based on the principle of the capacitor – it can detect the presence of objects without touching them. The sensor is triggered when it detects the presence of the object at a certain distance. […]
No, Stoock measures: air temperature and moisture, soil temperature and moisture at many depths and solar radiation.
Precipitation is a value obtained through the weather station nearest to your land. However, we can also infer an approximate value based on the entry of water in the soil detected by the Stoock.
The dew point is the temperature at which the water vapor present in the air becomes liquid in the shape of small drops via condensation. This is dew.
Wet leaf hours happen when the difference between the air’s temperature and the dew point value is less than 1,8ºC. Otherwise, they’re considered to be dry leaf hours.
Yes. All values below 7,2ºC we consider to be cold hours and, above that, heat hours.
After the sensor has been installed, you must wait about 8 days so that it can adapt to the soil. Then, an analysis of the results obtained by the Stoock is performed in order to assess their accuracy.
The client can report the matter to us and the sensor will be deactivated. In case you purchased the insurance for the equipment, you should contact your insurance company.
