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.

Greenhouse Automation

Benefits

The solution implemented by Industrial Shields brings the following benefits:

Cost savings


Ease of wiring

with screwless connector

The possibility to program in several languages

or to use free tools such as the Arduino IDE.

Goals

This project allows remote control of the values below:

Discover how >>

Humidity

Humidity

The relative humidity is monitored at the climate station inside the greenhouse and acts on the operation of fog systems or cooling systems.

Ventilation

Ventilation

Without proper ventilation in a crop, there would be areas with temperature and humidity differences, causing a decrease in the production of the harvest.

C02 level

C02 level

It controls CO2 application systems, based on measurements of the content inside the greenhouse.

Luminosity

Luminosity

By controlling the lighting, burns on plant leaves are avoided.
