Greenhouses have evolved into modern production facilities with the need to monitor product-critical environmental parameters.
Maintaining optimum environmental conditions, in particular temperature and humidity, is extremely important for plant breeding. Permanent and comprehensive monitoring allows a significant increase in productivity. To comprehensively cover a greenhouse, a large number of measuring points is often required. A wired solution would make such a system expensive and time-consuming.
Here, a central monitoring with integrated, wireless data loggers (Airosensor) offers enormous advantages. The easy to install sensors record parameters in defined cycles and send measured values to a base (AccessPoint) via a wireless network.
Even monitoring of remotely located greenhouses is possible without problems. In this instance, all data are collected via the GSM network and each individual measuring point can be read out and parameterized remotely.
What to look out for?
The minimum requirement for monitoring temperatures in greenhouses is the use of a Min/Max thermometer, which displays the respective minimum and maximum temperatures between two manual checks. However, such a Min/Max thermometer also bears its risks and inconveniences.
For one, the thermometer must be read very consistently each day, and in addition, the staff in charge of the recording must be reliable and trustworthy.
The principle disadvantage of a Min/Max thermometer, however, is the inability to send out a reliable alarm in the case of threshold violation (preferably before any damage occurred)!
How do I check if the required temperature, humidity and CO2 levels are maintained in my greenhouses?
Nothing easier than that. The SenseAnywhere monitoring system allows you to keep on top of these parameters on your premises. The system is easy to install and extremely intuitive to use. Keep track of the continuously recorded data at a glance - on site, at home or even while on the road. Configure temperature thresholds and get warned on the PC, by e-mail or SMS if these thresholds are violated - this is the only way to avoid damage before it occurs. On request, the system creates fully automatic reports for documentation and possible submission to external organisations.
And the best thing is... ...it doesn’t generate any extra work for you! Position the Sensor Modules where they need to monitor conditions, and after a simple and quick set-up phase, the monitoring system runs completely automatic and reliable - only drawing your attention when you need to step in.
