01. Feed Ordering Hub
BinSentry’s platform gives you visibility to the controllable costs in the feed supply chain. We help your organization drive increased profits by managing the most time-consuming and error-prone tasks within the livestock feed supply chain. Streamlining and automating the feed ordering processes enables you to enhance your operational efficiency; eliminate paper-based and manual processes, reduce costs related to inaccurate feed inventory data, feed outages and waste, late, missed and last-minute orders, transportation, and inefficient communication with your customers.
10 minutes and there is no on-site installation required since it’s a cloud-based software. Having an account running is as simple as signing up and importing your bins into our platform.

02. Sensor Technology
It’s 9,000 times better! BinSentry 3D sensor uses machine vision technology, providing you with a 3D image of your feed level surface, allowing you to literally view a representation of the interior of the bin from any angle. Unlike single-point sensors, which just read 1 data point, BinSentry’s 3D sensor measures 9,000+ points on the feed surface (even when rat-holes occur), equipping you with the most accurate data even with the most challenging feed products.
Mounted to the lip of the feed bin hatch (no bin modification is required), our solar-powered and self-cleaning sensor measures the distance to the feed surface and converts this data into volume and tonnage. This information is then sent to our software so you can easily access real-time sensor data & insights and make smarter decisions.
Seeing is Believing. Watch here how the sensors work.
Our 3D sensor is 9,000x more accurate than other technologies on the market. BinSentry’s 3D sensor approaches the accuracy levels achieved by load cells at a fraction of the cost.
03. Sensor Installation
$0; our SaaS monthly subscription covers the installation costs, any future service requirements, and device upgrades when available.
