Is your hay barn at risk of burning down?
Thousands of hay fires are recorded every year costing farmers hundreds of thousands of dollars through lost revenues and replacement of buildings and feed. Fermentation can cause bale temperatures to rise to dangerous levels in less than 24 hours.
Are you doing enough to protect your farm?
Join the fast-growing group of cautious farmers who have already trusted hay temperature monitoring to HAYTECH, the wireless solution that guards your hay 24/7.
HAYTECH is a wireless temperature monitoring system for your hay. The handy probes are connected to the internet, allowing you to follow the real-time temperature of your hay effortlessly.
Keeping your farm safe
You can check the temperature of your hay whenever you want through the free Quanturi online service. You will also receive alert messages to your phone if temperatures rise to unsafe levels.
Control hay quality
Rising temperatures can have catastrophic effects to hay quality, but with HAYTECH you can always be sure you are selling top quality hay and reduce the likelihood of product damage.
HAYTECH temperature probes
The HAYTECH system uses robust bright orange easy to spot probes. With a spike length of 40 cm, they were designed for use with square or round bales. The starter system contains 10 HAYTECH probes, but depending on the size of the farm, a single HAYTECH system can contain up to 500 probes.
Base station & repeater
The HAYTECH probes communicate with a base station and a repeater. The base station transmits the temperature measurements to the Cloud from which you can check the temperatures at any time. The repeater is an extra security device to guarantee good signal transmission between the probes to the base station.
Install in 3 easy steps
The probes of the HAYTECH system measure the hay temperature and you can see the temperature status on the www.Quanturi.app monitoring application. In case of any overheating, you will receive SMS warning and alert messages on your mobile phone.
NB The system requires an Internet connection to Quanturi Cloud Server

3. Don't worry
That's it. You can check on your hay whenever you want from your phone, tablet or computer. If temperatures start rising, you will receive an SMS alert.
The HAYTECH probes
Each HAYTECH probe measures the hay temperature regularly every hour. The Repeater unit which is located inside or nearby the hay storage, collects the measurement data and transmits it wirelessly to your HAYTECH base station. The base station forwards the data to the secure www.Quanturi.app server, which sends warning and alert messages to your phone and displays the temperature status on www.Quanturi.app.
The safest plan is to place one sensor probe in every bale. Every additional sensor probe improves situation awareness. However, even monitoring a portion of the haystack will increase security compared to manual temperature sampling.
Standard base station
The standard base station is connected to the internet via an ethernet cable. It is suitable for indoor use only and should be placed in your office or home, not further than 200m form the hay storage.
The repeater collects the data from the probes in the storage area and passes it on to the standard base station.
3G/4G base station
The 3G/4G base station contains a SIM-card (your choice of provider) and is able to communicate directly via the mobile network with the Quanturi secure cloud. You can install this base station anywhere there is no fixed internet connection. A repeater can be used to cover a second hay storage on the same property. NB. The 3G/4G base station requires a 240VAC power connection or you may chose to purchase our additional Solar Base Station Kit.
www.Quanturi.app is our web service for visualising the measurement data from the wireless probes. Here you will access an instant overview over all your HAYTECH probes and will be able to set the alert levels that will trigger the SMS alarms. Quanturi FREE includes the web interface and the SMS alarms - all for free!
PREMIUM is an affordable service plan that allows you to follow the temperature history of your probes, change the display name of each probe, make notes and place your probes in a handy virtual storage locator to find them easier in case of danger.
