Capacitive Sensors for parks and green spaces
Used by municipalities and landscapers, the SmartVEGE solution, developed by Sinafis, is a complete kit of robust and precise measurement tools. The system collects data using capacitive hygrometric sensors that monitor soil, air and leaf conditions to manage the irrigation of public parks and gardens and other landscaping featurres.

Why deploy this system for park and municipal green spaces?
To measure the level of leaf humectation
To anticipate diseases linked to the persistent presence of humidity on the leaves and reduce the usage of organic phyto-sanitary treatments.
To measure soil temperature and humidity at two different depths
To monitor root-level humidity and and the development of root structures.
To measure the temperature and humidity of the air
To detect frost and anticipate the life cycle of insects and diseases.

What does the SmartGREEN solution bring to municipalities and landscapers?
Optimization of water resources
By irrigating parks and green spaces only when necessary based on the needs of the plants.
Improving the quality and quantity of production
By anticipating known risks (diseases, pests, etc.).
Refining annual predictions by tracing the evolution of climatic cycles
By analyzing the data collected with precision.
Managing budget constraints
By equipping yourself with high-performance, low-cost technology.
How does this connected sensor system for parks and green spaces work?
Ultra-local data measurement
The sensors can be placed as close as possible to the vegetable foliage or the roots to benefit from ultra-localized data.
Secure data transmission
The sensor integrates a communication module for the Sigfox network. In France, 94% of the territory is covered.
alerts and online history
The Sinasens application supplied with the sensor makes it possible to configure and receive personalized alerts as well as to consult the data collected. You can also use the API to download your data in an “open data” format for integration with plot management and plant life-cycle software.
The advantages of the SmartGREEN all-in-one sensor system
Designed to last, the sensor system is specially designed for parks and green spaces.
Mobile sensor system
Easily move the sensor to where you want it, when you want it.
GPS positioning makes it possible to precisely locate the systems and also to deter theft.
The battery life is approximately 2 years and their condition is monitored to anticipate their replacement.
The entire system was designed to be deployed in less than 5 minutes.
Sinafis products are made in France, in the Tarn in the Occitanie region.
Sensor systems tested and recommended by municipalities and landscapers
City of Cahors (46)
Denis Pomier was able to deploy his team using SinaSens SmartGREEN to monitor the irrigation needs the the suspended planters in Cahors.
SinaSens SmartGREEN allowed us to monitor the planters to see if we needed to water them. An activity that requires a snorkel truck and 3 municipal employees if necessary. We also used the system in our municipal greenhouses to improve the quality of our plants.

Frequently asked questions
Yes, as precision equipment, this sensor is eligible in 2021 for State funding from the FranceAgriMer recovery plan for a minimum order amount of € 2,000 (group purchase included). More information on the website: www.franceagrimer.fr
The number of sensors to install depends on the slope and the type of soil of your plot and not on its surface. For a sloping plot, it is better to deploy 2 sensors: one at the top of the slope and one at the bottom of the slope. Contact us to help you decide.
The battery life of the system depends on the frequency of the data transmission. The lifespan is up to 3 years with a frequency of one transmission per day. With a frequency of 6-12 transmissions per day, the autonomy is approximately one year.
Yes, the Sinasens application is available on your computer but also accessible from your web browser on a smartphone or tablet, at the same address.
