Real-time monitoring now possible from devices anywhere in the world with DeLaval’s wireless Farm Monitoring Camera FMC-IP1

Stockholm (August 28, 2014) - With the launch of its wireless Farm Monitoring Camera FMC-IP1, DeLaval now offers farmers the possibility of true real-time monitoring over their livestock and buildings from smartphones, tablets or computers. By giving farmers the freedom to monitor without being on-site, activities such as calving can be monitored more efficiently, and alarms can be checked visually.

In an industry where cow comfort and welfare are vital to productivity, the ability to efficiently monitor the herd, from wherever the farmer happens to be, is important in maintaining a well-functioning operation,” says Eva Ramvall, Product Manager Farm Supply at DeLaval.

The Farm Monitoring Camera system has been specifically designed for ease of installation and to withstand the dirt and humidity of barns as well as outdoor weather conditions. It also provides a night vision function and sound, in addition to motion detection and a recording function. This makes it ideal for a wide range of monitoring tasks, from animal and property monitoring to checking grain driers during harvesting.

The camera will be made available during the coming twelve months in all  our main markets and below please find the schedule of countries and launch dates we currently have available:
