Development

We develop custom environmental monitoring and irrigation flow-control solutions.

We adopt a policy of continuous improvement to our systems and networks of systems, always looking for better ways to acquire and deliver data to our customers.

During the development phase, we look at ways to improve operational efficiency by standardizing our equipment so that, as far as possible, as many parts of a system are the same. This simplifies and reduces the cost of spares carried by technicians. It also means that as many sites as possible are made to appear 'familiar', reducing time and minimizing the number of unsuccessful site visits.

For long term development of commercial systems such as irrigation systems we recommend an annual support contract. NIWA would then make any necessary changes as required to keep the system operational and current.
