Prevent poultry heat stress with this temperature meter for your poultry farm.
Poultry, in particular a chicken, is susceptible to overheating. When your cooling system fails on a hot summer day this can quickly result in many casualties. Poultry monitoring using a poultry alarm lets you know when temperatures are approaching the temperature limits of your flock.
As assembled by Crodeon for professional use in poultry farms, the kit measures, monitors and logs temperature and relative humidity, CO2 concentration and atmospheric pressure in your coop. Measurement data is streamed to the cloud (Crodeon Dashboard) in real-time through the GSM network.
What makes Crodeon's chicken monitoring stand out is the utter ease at which the system goes live. You don't require any prior technical knowledge to operate Reporter. Simply plug the poultry sensors into the module, and start logging and monitoring your project.
As all customisations happen in the cloud, you can adjust the settings of your alarm notifications and measurement intervals here. Receive alarm notifications for exceeding CO2 limits, temperatures, atmospheric pressure or humidity. Reporter also comes with a built-in power failure alarm that warns you about power outages in your building.
This user-friendly kit is easy and efficient for gathering reliable data while guaranteeing to keep your flock safe.
The sensors of the Poultry Temperature Monitoring kit should be installed in your chicken pen in the most representative places. Do not place Reporter inside the barn, as the high ammonia concentrations will damage the device.
Reporter is IP67 and therefore can be mounted to an outside wall without any problems.
The chicken monitoring kit consists of a sensor module with three indoor temperature sensors that measure dry bulb and wet bulb temperature, as well as relative humidity and dew point. An additional CO2 sensor is included to monitor the air quality inside your poultry farm to prevent CO2 poisoning. The kit is completed with the corresponding adapters, extension cables, grid power supply and a one-year data subscription to make your kit fully functional.
We trust in industry-leading technology, which is why we bundle our strengths with existing sensors from high-end sensor producers. Our temperature and humidity sensors use industry-leading Sensirion SHT35 chips, the CO2 sensor uses a Sensirion SCD30 chip.
All hardware has been made compatible by Crodeon to ensure a smooth plug & play installation process for you.
Reporter works on grid power or its own solar panel, supported by a built-in battery that can last for multiple days to weeks depending on your measurement interval. When connected to the power grid, Reporter functions as a power outage alarm, keeping you up to date about the grid power supply in your building.
Data streams to our cloud platform, the Crodeon Dashboard through the GSM network (2G or 4G).
Other commercial livestock monitoring systems work on WiFi or local networks that can quickly become unreliable due to power cuts. A power outage, in this case, will not only kill your ventilation system but also your monitoring system when your data connection goes offline.
This is where Reporter as an autonomous and robust solution becomes the obvious choice for livestock monitoring to prevent heat stress and suffocation in poultry.

Reporter requires a yearly subscription to operate. The subscription covers things like connectivity and use of the Crodeon Dashboard. The Poultry Temperature Monitoring kit has a 12 months subscription included.
Birds are extremely sensitive to overheating as they cannot sweat or easily decrease their body temperature, which is why they rely on their environment to maintain a comfortable temperature. In times of heat stress poultry has less of an appetite and laying hens produce fewer eggs. In the worst case, overheating can result in death.
Poultry, just like humans, can asphyxiate due to high CO2 concentrations. CO2 monitoring with a poultry sensor system therefore also helps to keep your flock safe.
