What does GroLab™ Pro Kit allows me to control?
Get rid of all the timers, triplets and messy cables hanging in your growing area, and ensure a proper feeding solution for your plants, with precise nutrients dosing and auto pH correction. With the smart irrigation based on substrate's moisture, you will even save water and keep the perfect conditions for your plants.
With this configuration you get precise control of your lamps, configuring the growing days from 18h/6h to 12h/12h in one click, allowing even to make an 8h/8h day if you wish so.
The PowerBot's temperature and humidity probe enable the control of the ventilation, lowering the consumption for this device while optimizing the climate in your growing area.
Connecting two water pumps to PowerBot allows the control of irrigation (hydroponics and soil), from the basic weekday's selection (one hour in the morning every other day) to the enhanced recurrent schedule (5 minutes every hour). The GroLab™ Software allows the creation of schedules to feed any kind of grow type with extreme precision.
Thanks to the SoilBot, you can keep the substrate under control (both soil or hydroponics), constantly monitoring and performing any correction you desire. For example, you can create an alarm that triggers a timed drip irrigation whenever the percentage of moisture in the soil drops to a minimum value, or even use some device to heat or cool the soil based on the SoilBot's temperature sensor. In the hydroponics you can use the substrate moisture sensor to warn you if the bed is getting too dry, meaning a pump might be broken. Not only it can warn you, but it can also take action and stop the pump. The same happens with the detection of a flood or a leak. Notifications, selective shutdown, are just some of the procedures you can configure.
TankBot will ensure the perfect health of the nutrients solution, automatically adjusting your pH, while dispensing the correct amount of nutrients every time a refill is made. It can even handle a full tank refill on its own. Due to the ability to control solenoids, you can use TankBot as an irrigation path creator, with one single water pump feed different grows at different times.
TankBot is also a powerful security tool since you can sample any universal switch sensor, like smoke or motion detectors, allowing, for example, to shut down all your room or the whole system, and even send you an e-mail when, someone gets too near, or smoke is detected. All of these procedures and options are fully customizable!
This configuration easily manages an area with two distinct growing systems, ensuring a complete automation of lighting, climate, nutrients dosing, auto pH correction, and smart irrigation for each growing system independently. If you use this configuration you will still have two inputs available for moisture sensors in the SoilBot and one input available in the PowerBot (universal switch sensor, that can be used for a motion/smoke detector or water level sensor).
In this configuration, there are still one output available in the TankBot. You are free to use it for whatever device you may find suitable, from a solenoid to dosing pump, or a power relay that handles lights, ventilators, etc.
GroLab™ offers data-logging and data-storing, these features ensure that all the information about sensors/devices is collected and stored over time! Thanks to these and to the data-visualization features, it is possible to do a detailed analysis of the life cycle of your plants, enabling you to maximize their growth and efficiency!
This is a scheme designed to show some of the GroLab™ Pro Kit possibilities, nevertheless, you can rearrange the devices, or even replace them, with any other device you may find useful, like lamps, fog makers, fans, heaters, dehumidifiers, dosing pumps, relays, etc. Since a single GroNode supports up to 4 modules of each type, if at some point, you need to add more sensors or devices (e.g. to control another growing area), you will only need to add the desired extra modules expanding your control.

But, what I get with a GroLab™ Pro Kit?
This is the exact package that will arrive at your doorstep. It comes with a Starter Kit composed by GroNode and PowerBot, a TankBot, a SoilBot, all the necessary cables, sensors, and connectors. It also includes a USB Pen that contains the GroLab™ Software, instruction manuals, and video tutorials.
PowerBot, TankBot, and SoilBot are capable of handling more peripherals than the ones included in this kit. Check the Peripherals & Extras section on our shop and take your GroLab™ Pro Kit to its limits.
It can be installed in no time, and will fully automate your growing area in a matter of minutes.
GroLab™ Software is always under development. If a newer version is available, the system will automatically update. The same happens for any of the included modules, this means that your GroLab™ Pro Kit will have access to any improvements that our development team implements in the near future.
Remember, one GroNode supports up to 4 PowerBots, 4 TankBots, 4 SoilBots, and 4 UserBots. You are free to spread them between 4 different areas with two different grows each. Whenever you need a new vegetative, cloning or flowering room, simply extend your GroLab™ system by adding the desired extra modules.
