How Growtronix Works
The great part about Growtronix is that you can use the monitoring of sensors to control the devices in your grow area. For example; you can set your fans to be turned on and off based on the temperature or turn off a pump if a flood is detected. The control can be as complex or as simple as you want or need it to be. This gives you a tremendous amount of control over your environment. Many novice and expert growers fail to produce a decent crop just because they don't have adequate control of the environment.
Growtronix gives you the ability to monitor your growing climate, and gives you the option to continuously graph the data from the sensors. Most growers use some form of a temperature and humidity sensor which tracks the highs and the lows. Although these are helpful, they can’t tell you when it reached that temperature or humidity or for how long it remained that way. And it certainly can't show you how your system interacts with the environment. With the graphs, you can see exactly when a fan turned on, see how long it took for the temperature to drop, and then see how long it takes for the temperature to rise again. The information generated is extremely valuable to any grower, it cannot be stressed enough. With the graphing feature of the software, you can easily analyze your environment down to the smallest detail. This will give you valuable insight into the true nature of your environment.
If you own a cell phone you have a great opportunity to put it to good use. You can have The Growtronix System send an email or text message for any reason you like. Here are some of the common text messages, but it is only limited by your imagination:
• If a flood is detected
• If a door or window is unexpectedly opened
• If motion is detected
• If the temperature or humidity is out of range
• If Co2 is low (bottle runs out)
• If reservoir is low on nutrients
• if pH is high or is low
• if the reservoir water level is low
• A message just saying all systems are up and running
• And many more
With the Growtronix Quick Control web server you can check the current sensor readings, the sensors min max values, view charts and manually turn on and off the Controllable Power Outlets all available at the tip of your fingers. A fancy smartphone isn't necessarily needed, just about any cell phone that has a web browser will be able to connect and control the system.
Easy installation :
Growtronix base systems are extremely quick and easy to install. Many customers decide to customize their system with add-on hardware. Any of these additional devices can be added in a matter of seconds. Once the system is installed and the devices are plugged into the Controlled Power Outlet(s), you are ready to set up your control policies.
Intelligent Control Policies:
Control Policies are the BRAINS of The Growtronix System. A policy consists of a set of Conditions (the time of day, a sensor reading above or below a set point, an outlet being on or off, etc.) and a set of Actions (turn on or off a device, send a text message, etc). You can customize your policies to meet your automation goals. The control policies can be designed as simple or as complex as you need them to be. And you can include as many control policies as you want. The control policies support your grow room as an around-the-clock employee would, maintaining the environment as it naturally changes.
