In 2015 true remote telemetry devices did not exist. Ontoto’s Managing Director, Tim Blake, decided it was time for that to change and started designing and manufacturing data loggers that provided data to cloud telemetry solutions to the environmental monitoring industry.
The Ontoto solutions are designed and manufactured in-house and over time we have learned many things. Data loggers should be easy to install and use; they should be cost effective; they should have a long technology life; they should have long battery life; and, most importantly, they should be reliable.
The Ontoto range includes data loggers for groundwater monitoring, vibrating wire loggers, water metering, tipping rain gauges and environmental monitoring. Our devices now utilise 4G, NB-IoT and satellite communications. Couple this with our Ontoto Data Management, Ontoto provides the entire solution for managing your data.
The current standard telecommunications network cannot guarantee reliability of coverage across Australia, let alone across the world. Many of our clients are operating in areas that are remote and do not have cellular coverage. This is why the Ontoto devices are all designed with a satellite connectivity alternative. It provides a guarantee to our clients that they can get their data to their desktop from anywhere in the world, and it offers a solution with longevity. We have also ensured that the costs of our satellite solutions are comparable to cellular costs.
We are extremely proud of our products and the customer service we offer. Our team is always ensuring our products are cutting edge and maximising the technologies available.
