Semios Technologies decided to create a product that radically changes how orchard growers handle pest control. The key to the product is the use of new pesticide-free pheromones. To turn this idea into reality, they needed to create a system that could sense where the pests were breeding and automatically dispense the pheromone-based pest control in response.

Semios realized their largest challenge would be getting a system that worked in an environment with no dedicated power and where wireless signals needed to travel through the hundreds of acres of dense foliage. That is where SNAP-based technology from Synapse provided the answer.

Semios decided to use SNAP-based RF modules and gateways as the foundation of their product. The SNAP-based RF modules gave Semios the ability to collect and transmit data using batteries to power their devices and without needing the batteries replaced for over a year.

Semios discovered they could leverage the mesh networking capabilities of the SNAP-based RF modules to relay signals from their devices to SNAP-based Gateways. This allowed them to deploy thousands of devices over hundreds of acres without having to rely on longer-range devices that weren’t capable of sending large amounts of data.
