October 10, 2023
Welcome to Spring, where the sun shines a little brighter, and your farm gears up for another productive year. Just like you give your paddocks some TLC, it's essential to ensure that your monitoring equipment is in tip-top shape. Here are some user-friendly tech tips to help you get started:
1. Clean out those rain buckets
First up, your trusty weather station. It's been through rain, snow, and the harshest of weather over the winter months. Make sure it's ready for action by cleaning out those rain buckets. A quick check and a gentle cleaning will keep your weather data flowing smoothly.
2. Clean solar panels
If you notice excessive dust or layers of dirt on your solar panels, it's time for a little spring cleaning. A simple wipe-down with a clean, damp cloth can significantly boost their efficiency.
3. Recharge your irrigator batteries
Keep an eye on that text alert warning you about low battery levels. Take a moment to recharge batteries overnight to prevent potential hiccups with GPS, geofencing, and other crucial functions.
4. Check your Halo Dashboard
Last but not least, check your Halo dashboard. Pay special attention to any alerts and related tiles. If anything seems amiss, don't hesitate to reach out to our Halo Support team. A quick fix now means more time for you to enjoy the summer months without worry. Contact Halo Support here
