A Fence Monitoring Solution is made up of Gateways and Fence Nodes. A starter kit consists of 1 x gateway and 3 x nodes, but up to 50 nodes may be included in a system.

The Gateway provides the internet/cloud interface to the on-farm network. A fence monitoring solution requires a gateway to collect information from the nodes and pass it to the cloud.

Each Fence Node communicates to the gateway through radio frequency. The system works like a mesh, where each node can talk to all other nodes within 500 m (1/3 mile) to relay information back to the gateway.
