For the supervisor, instead of relying on old or insufficient data due to costs or the inconvenience of manually gathering data, with our cost effective wireless sensing network and its data analysis along with automated precision control, the rapid return on investment becomes quite obvious.
Using our products and solutions to apply just the right amount of heating, cooling, water, humidity, and CO2 control create the ideal environment for the best crop using fewer resources.
Cool Nodes ™ are a ZigBee network with many types of sensors and can detect light, motion, temperature, soil humidity, pressure, water flow, water level, etc. When set points are exceeded, ON/OFF messages are broadcast from sensor nodes throughout the network ranging over 300 yards.
Cool Nodes ™ output actuators (wireless relays) can switch on/off AC equipment up to 4000 Watts.
We operate under a zero data loss model so that readings from the sensors are logged locally until successful transfer has been achieved. Stored readings in gateways are kept until transfer to the local system via LAN or to the cloud have been confirmed.
Users can analyze the data and manage their system in real-time, using their own customized or third party software; a standalone or cloud software for simple integration making it equally accessible on desktop computers or mobile devices.
Simplified Wireless Control System
Water Management & Environmental Control
In addition to being able to set limits for early warning (such as soil humidity levels or room temperature), our gateways have an added advantage of being able to control systems via our wireless relay output devices; for example turning on the heater to raise the temperature when it begins to get cold or start the irrigation pump when the soil is dry to ensure it does not go beyond acceptable limits.
We use profiles to simplify the setup and control of micro climates within larger spaces ex.; growing different plants for experimenting or discovering more effective growing environments.
Our gateways can work independently so there is no delay in managing the environment because the necessary control signals are sent as soon as the sensor data arrives at the gateway. If the gateway loses connection to the data cloud or local system, it can continue to log incoming data from the wireless sensors and control the wireless relay outputs.
The remote alert, monitoring, and control frees up time to be focused on the complete solution. Agriculture site owners and supervisors all over the world are all seeing the value that simple wireless solutions with integrated management can bring to improve their operations and realize a rapid return on their investment in the process.
As information and communications technology is applied to growing, an age of remote farming that can manage facilities with less people has begun (leaving less to human error). This era of remote agriculture is directly linked to efficiency and economics. In fact, since greenhouses and farms have adopted a smart agriculture system, labor costs have shown to fall 20% while production and income surges roughly 50%.
