To ensure you can monitor all of your stock water points, Observant provides two variants of the Remote Tank Solution:

  • Are either poly or steel roofed.
  • Receive at least 4 hours of direct sunlight a day.
  • Have a roof in good condition, that is accessible with a ladder.
  • Are within UHF range of either the Ethernet Gateway Kit or 3G Gateway Tank Kit**.

Remote Tank & Bore Management – Mt Riddock Cattle Station, Northern Territory, Australia. 

Located 200km north east of Alice Springs in the Northern Territory lies “Mt Riddock” Station, the 2,633 square kilometer property is run by Steve & Rebecca Cadzow. Several years ago they installed Observant's Remote Tank & Bore Management System, their aim was to reduce the impact of fossil fuel and carbon output whilst reducing the labour costs associated with bore runs.

The Observant product allows us to remotely (From anywhere in the world, most importantly our house) to check watering points and tank levels for the cattle without having to drive to the troughs every day, sometimes these trips would be over 200km per week. This together with the solar bores reduced significantly the amount of diesel fuel we purchased and we believe helped in a very significant way to help the environment in the short term, as well as into the future.
