- Cost-effective, real-time local flood alert system
- Easy to install and set up
- Robust and reliable system
- FloodAlert® sensor sends SMS and email alerts to give you time to take evasive action to protect your property
- Live monitoring on a cloud-based portal, via any device with internet connectivity
- Tracks surface water levels for up to 15km from a gateway
- Can communicate with an unlimited number of designated users
- Three alert levels, tailored to each installation
- Communication via a low-power LoRaWAN network
- Multiple FloodAlert posts can interconnect to form a network for flooding hotspots.
FloodAlert is the ideal early warning system for single and multiple properties at risk of flooding through rising groundwater
The posts can be strategically positioned to give maximum warning to allow for evasive action.
Easy to install and set up, the posts transmit warnings and real-time monitoring of water levels to a cloud-based portal, accessible from any internet enabled device, with no necessity for special software. FloodAlert uses a robust, ultrasonic LoRaWAN level sensor and integrated radio, encased in a recycled, watertight and shatter-resistant outer casing, ensuring consistent reliability. The posts can be installed up to 15 kilometres from the gateway in some cases and each gateway can connect to an unlimited number of users.
FloodAlert Ultrasonic LoRaWAN Sensor is a battery operated water level sensor with integrated LoRaWAN radio. CE Conformance and RoHS Compliant. 24/7 monitoring with up to 15km range.
The sensor is integrated inside the top part of the post and monitors groundwater levels below and inside the post. The top of the post can be removed to give access for maintenance, for example battery replacement, however batteries will last for 12 years and no routine maintenance is generally required.
Easy installation and set-up
FloodAlert posts are buried in the ground in 0.5m post holes and back-filled with gravel to allow groundwater to enter the post through rows of holes. The sensor monitors groundwater levels below and inside the post.
In many cases a single FloodAlert post will suffice, however a number of posts can also be deployed to protect a larger risk area and multiple properties.
The post is constructed from robust, 100% recycled post-industrial plastic waste with 30mm thick walls. Rows of holes allow groundwater to enter the post for the sensor to monitor the water levels. The posts are available in grey or brown with reflective red and white strips, they are robust and easy to install.
Depending on ground conditions and following a groundwater survey, three alarm levels will be programmed into the system. Each time an alarm level threshold is breached, the designated property owner/s will receive email and SMS warnings.
Users will be supplied with LoRaWAN gateway hardware and software as part of the network, receiving data from FloodAlert posts and transferring the data to the cloud-based monitoring software and alerts to designated users. Indoor and outdoor options are available, specifications vary depending on installation.
The web portal is available via any device with a web browser and provides real-time live data showing current water levels, up to the last 30 days of water levels and information about signal strength, temperature and battery life, all displayed in a graphic format.
