Frequently Asked Questions

Pricing starts from just $4500 for a complete SCADAfarm pivot system. Subscriptions start from $40 per month. Special pricing is available from WaterForce when ordering a new Valley pivot irrigator.
SCADAfarm has all the same controls that you will already find on your pivot or pump, and they are clearly labelled. Most people who can operate a pivot and have experience with a smartphone will be able to use the App with ease.
SCADAfarm is built on proven SCADA hardware and software and delivers over 99% uptime.
In such cases the equipment can still be controlled manually like normal, it does not require SCADAfarm to run. Once the cellphone signal is restored, SCADAfarm will automatically start working again, but it will not override any pivot or pump settings changed while it was offline.
Yes, you can have as many pivots as you want on your system, even across multiple farms. Logins are flexible, for example a manager could see all units at once, while a farm worker might only see the units they are responsible for. Different access levels are available to restrict controls to certain users, so you can have users that are only able to view information but not make changes to the system.
Yes, SCADAfarm can work on any device with an up-to-date web browser. We currently only offer an App for Apple iOS devices, but an Android App is planned in the future. Customers with Android, Blackberry or Windows devices can still access full functionality through the website, provided they have internet access and a recent web browser.
Our system is extremely flexible, there are a number of options available.
We provide comprehensive user manuals for both the website and the App. The controls are intuitive, and anyone familiar with the controls on a Valley pivot will recognise these same controls on the SCADAfarm system. If you have any issues, our dedicated New Zealand-based support team are available Monday to Friday and can be reached via phone, email, or through the Live Chat feature on the website and App - just click the icon at the bottom of the screen to start talking to us!
No, SCADAfarm is billed annually and in advance like a prepay service meaning there are no contract periods, and no hassles if you sell the property where the system is installed.
SCADAfarm uses robust, proven Schneider Electric hardware and requires little ongoing maintenance if looked after. The system is housed in IP rated industrial cabinets to protect it from the elements and provide years of hassle-free use.
