What is Growduino and how it works?
Growduino is a system based on the Arduino platform, created for a complete remote control and monitoring of closed indoor growing areas such as growrooms and greenhouses. It's also possible to use the system locally/directly.
The system works by reading series of sensors and output devices and then processing the data according to the user's settings to achieve the best possible outcomes. The user interface can be accessed from web browser in your PC, smartphone or tablet (no installation of dedicated application needed), and you can access the interface from anywhere in the world. You can go on a vacation without worries and still be in total control - Growduino will take care of everything.
Another incentive to buy the system is it's cheap price. Industrial level equipment of this type often can't display the data or control the workspace remotely and yet costs thousands EUR/USD, usually 1500,- EUR/USD and more.
Create your own Growduino - how to buy
Growduino is composed of modules, customize it to your needs. There are just four steps.
1. Go to page Outputs and choose equipment to be driven at your growing area. Every device takes one output socket. Note also which of them draws 250W or more, You will need this later.
2. Then choose a Main unit - it's version depends on device count.
3.Go to page Sensors and choose what do you want to measure. Every sensor can be added only once, but You can have all of them. There is a detailed description at sensor's subpages.
4. Decide to have or not to have internal UPS (uninterruptible power source) at the system. Output devices will not be powered during power outage, but You will get the option to continue measurements and also be alerted via email.
