Outdoor WiFi for Farm, Ranch, and Rural Home

Ayrstone AyrMesh Hub2x2AyrMesh Hub2TAyrstone Productivity® introduces the AyrMesh® System of Wireless Farm Networking for your farm, ranch or other rural property. The AyrMesh system is designed for easy set up and use by people with farm backgrounds. It uses standard WiFi signals and standard Ethernet connectivity, so it can connect a huge variety of household and industrial equipment. All Ayrstone devices come with a 90-day limited money-back guarantee and a 1-year replacement warranty, so you can confidently join the thousands who have already adopted the AyrMesh system on their properties.

Get WiFi Outdoors Across Your Property with the AyrMesh Hub2x2

The first thing that the AyrMesh system allows you to do is have WiFi outside the house – first into the immediate farmyard, then into your outbuildings, and across your fields. Step one is to connect an AyrMesh Hub to the router inside your home or office, and mount it up high outside, clear of any obstructions. It should be 25′ above obstructions for maximum range, but, to just get WiFi around the farmyard and into nearby buildings, it only needs to be up above the roof of the building where it’s mounted.AyrMesh Hub2x2

This will allow you to bring WiFi for your devices outdoors in the farmyard up to half a mile away, or to connect buildings and other stationary farm equipment up to 2 miles away. By connecting additional AyrMesh Hubs, you can extend the WiFi signal much further away. Read this article to understand the Hub’s extraordinary range.

The best way to get started is to get a Hub2x2 today and mount it up high outside in the clear. Make sure to get an Ethernet cable long enough to connect it to your router. If you want to get your Internet connection to buildings on your property…

Connect Out-Buildings with the AyrMesh Receiver

You can then use an AyrMesh Receiver to bring the network into various buildings around your properties. The AyrMesh Receiver mounts easily outside with an Ethernet cable going into the building. The Ethernet cable plugs into a power supply that provides an Ethernet port to connect any Ethernet device. You can use the AyrMesh IndoorAP to provide WiFi inside the building, and the AyrMesh Switch to provide additional Ethernet ports.

The AyrMesh Receiver can also be used to connect stationary equipment like irrigation controllers, grain dryers, and network cameras (for security or just to keep an eye on operations).

Extend your WiFi into Your Fields and Across the Farm

You can extend your WiFi data network using additional AyrMesh Hubs – the Hubs can be placed up to 2.5 miles apart, and  you can go up to three “hops” in every direction. This means you can cover a contiguous area of about 150,000 acres. You can also use the AyrMesh Bridge to jump to distant fields over distances of up to 5 miles – like a wireless Ethernet cable. The AyrMesh Bridge can be used, for instance, to connect a Gateway Hub on top of a tower or grain leg for maximum range and effectiveness, or to even use an Internet connection miles away and bring it on the farm. Here’s an article about planning your AyrMesh network, and here is a slideshow (or in video form from an Ayrstone webinar) about how the AyrMesh network can extend to your distant fields.

AyrMesh devices can be used where there is no power, using simple solar panels and batteries. Such a system, for instance, can power a stand-alone AyrMesh Hub in the field and even a Hub + Bridge combo to beam the WiFi signal to another field 5 miles away. This way an entire farm’s fields can be put onto the network.

Finally, the AyrMesh WiFi data network can be brought into mobile farm equipment – tractors, combines, sprayers, pickups, and even ATVs and utility vehicles using the AyrMesh Cab Hub. This operates like our AyrMesh Hub with a special cable that plugs into the 12 volt utility power outlet inside any vehicle and includes a special magnetic-mount antenna easily placed on top of a cab or ROPS system.

The on-the-cab WiFi signal can be used with a smartphone, tablet, or laptop, as well as with in-cab computers such as AgLeader and Topcon, or any other WiFi or Ethernet-equipped devices.

Simple and Future-Proof – the Basis for Modern Ag-Tech

Unlike other outdoor WiFi products, the AyrMesh system is built for farmers, not networking technicians. All you have to do is connect each AyrMesh device to your network so it can download its configuration information from AyrMesh.com, and then mount it up high and out in the clear. The AyrMesh system is self-configuring and each device is monitored on AyrMesh.com, so you can tell at a glance that each device on your wifi data network is connected and working properly. You own and control your AyrMesh network – there is no monthly or annual subscription.

Your investment in AyrMesh is protected because AyrMesh is built on open technologies – 802.11n and 802.11s WiFi and meshing, and 802.3 Ethernet. That means there is a rich variety of devices that just work out-of-the-box with AyrMesh, from smartphones, tablets, and laptops to security devices like the Ring doorbell and Nest Cameras to entertainment systems like Sonos to farm-specific products like GSI’s Watchdog controller. It also means that, as people build more and more networked “AgTech” farming equipment, you’ll be able to easily put it on your network. In fact, if someone builds a better farm networking product, you’ll be able to replace AyrMesh with their product and use all the same devices.
