THE ULTIMATE TOOL FOR NEW ZEALAND FARMERS
The Mavic 2 Enterprise, also known as the ‘Barking Drone’ has been proven to be an effective alternative in managing livestock in New Zealand farms.
It can provide farmers with visual status of all farm assets.
Kit comes with an extra self-heating battery.
The Barking Drone is similar to the DJI Mavic 2 Zoom, which is popular for its portability and high-quality camera, but it is designed with a smart port on top of the craft that allows the addition of modular accessories, such as a loudspeaker and a spotlight. The loudspeaker can be used to record any audio, including a siren sound or dog barking, to play back at a sound level able to be heard from hundreds of metres away. Stock respond quickly and effectively to the sound.
The Barking Drone also sports a 12-megapixel camera with 2x optical zoom and is capable of capturing 4K footage. Farmers already utilise the camera for a range of tasks from checking stock to examining troughs to assessing hard-to-reach fencelines. The addition of the zoom for closer inspection, the spotlight for low light operations and GPS timestamping for accuracy, makes these operations even easier than before. In cold climates, self-heating batteries ensure the drone will perform, even in sub-zero temperatures.
