Environmental Monitoring Technology Will Help Boost Production at Ontario Winery
Premier Kathleen Wynne was at Henry of Pelham Family Estate Winery today in Pelham in Niagara Region, as Bell announced a new partnership with Ontario-based BeWhere, an Internet of Things (IoT) solutions company, and China-based tech company Huawei, the world’s largest telecommunications equipment maker.
Together, the companies have developed an environmental monitoring solution to help improve the health and quality of plants at the vineyard. The product will use sensors connected to Bell’s LTE-M wireless network to remotely monitor temperature and water levels, automatically adjusting as weather conditions change. The innovative IoT solution will help lower costs, keep more vines alive longer and promote greater sustainability.
