About the customer
A smart greenhouse has the ability to control the environmental variables that affect the crop, such as irrigation or lighting control.
Our customer, in charge of the management of a greenhouse, was looking for an open source solution to implement all the desired technical specifications, with unlimited options, something difficult to achieve with a turnkey solution.
The solution implemented by Industrial Shields brings the following benefits:
Ease of wiring
with screwless connector
The possibility to program in several languages
or to use free tools such as the Arduino IDE.
This project allows remote control of the values below:
The relative humidity is monitored at the climate station inside the greenhouse and acts on the operation of fog systems or cooling systems.
Without proper ventilation in a crop, there would be areas with temperature and humidity differences, causing a decrease in the production of the harvest.
It controls CO2 application systems, based on measurements of the content inside the greenhouse.
By controlling the lighting, burns on plant leaves are avoided.
