Our solution helps to Quantify the
Values of IoT Technologies for
Poultry Farming in Sudan


Quality and safety of broilers are always as main concerns for consumers and affect the strategic future of poultry industry. According to research, chickens are mostly hardy but can be brought low by confinement, poor air quality, darkness, poultry diseases and related problems. Considering all analysis on the well-productive meat chicken grow-out houses, an indoor controlled-and-monitored-environment is definitely necessary for farmers.


  • Ensure Indoor Environment with Higher Welfare of Poultry
  • Highly Maintain Good Quality and Safety of Broilers
  • Meet Project Budget and Build up a Sustainable IoT System
  • Get Real-Time Data Analysis and Report and Make Informed Decision

Project Details

Recently, IoTNVR and Inmaa deliver an animal poultry solution based on IoT and LoRaWAN® technology to Sudanese markets. To alleviate the negative effects associated with indoor broilers housing environment, we unlocks technological capabilities of the IoT and enables the flexible wireless connectivity with presenting a solution consisting of LoRaWAN® Gateway, LoRaWAN® Sensors and IoT Platform.

Project Layout

The Inmaa Farm contains 8 sites and 56 small animal housings and covers an area of 6000㎡. The LoRaWAN® based solution is deployed in the Room 7 of Site 12 to save time and stay informed with automated temperature, humidity, light and door status monitoring. The installation of all devices only takes a few days for our customers (2 people) to complete and make them function properly.

Project Goals
  • Real-Time Monitoring for Climate Monitoring (Temperature, Humidity, Light)
  • Monitor Door / Window Status
  • DashboardSettings
  • Farm Visualization (Location, Name, Information)
  • Enable Notification System (SMS, Email)
  • Real Time Analysis and Reporting
  • Integration with IoT Platform

Device Installation


The LoRaWAN®-based system tackles a number of pressing challenges. It is designed to solves unique and complex remote monitoring challenges by combining efficient wireless sensors and gateways to perform industry-leading monitoring, real-time reporting, and instant alerts.

The comprehensive off-site monitoring of poultry housings and performance are coming from G67 Outdoor LoRaWAN® Gateway, IOT-S500-MCS Magnetic Contact Switch, IOT-S500-TH LoRaWAN® Temperature and Humidity Sensor, and IOT-S500-LGT Light Sensor. With featuring high IP67 rating enclosure and multiple mounting methods, the UG67 is able to be deployed outdoors and even operates normally in the harsh environment. The industrial-grade and innovative design enable the G67 to offer a wide network coverage for up to 15km in rural area and transmit data collected from sensors deployed within the area.

Later, the sensors, including door sensor (IOT-S500-MCS), IOT-S500-TH, and IOT-S500-LGT, have been installed indoors to detect and collect values of temperature, humidity, status of door, and light status. To keep the housing environment of poultry industry steady with the suitable temperature, humidity, and light status, the IOT-S500-TH is set to send real-time measurement for every 5 min over LoRaWAN® network, the IOT-S500-LGT can detect and collect values of light and transmit to LoRaWAN® Gateway instantly without any delay and the door sensor has monitored the status of door in case any chicken running out from the housing or being confronted with unexpected intruder.

All the sensors and gateway are around 2km away from the Inmaa headquarters and all the data can be transmitted successfully and reported on the IoT platform (tested for 12 times already). The sensors and gateway support two-way communications and offer good performance in both short distance and long range connectivities. Users can get real-time data and measurements of broilers housing environment on the IoT platform and identify critical issues causing process inefficiencies, making decision towards the holistic improvement of the production chain.

To offer more streamlined and enjoyable user experiences, our customers have arranged some testings for this IoT-based solution for poultry industry. The testings for this pilot project have lasted for 8 months from summer to autumn and come with various satisfied results. It is an acknowledgement of IoTNVR and Inmaa insights that have brought greater flexibility and autonomy to the life cycle management of animal husbandry.
