Description

What does GroLab™ Hydro Kit allows me to control?

Example Configuration

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 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 a water pump to PowerBot allows the control of irrigation, 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.

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!

In this configuration, there are still one output available in the PowerBot and another one in the TankBot. You are free to use them for whatever device you may find suitable, from a second water pump, more light power, a humidifier, solenoids, 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™ Hydro 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, dosing pumps, solenoids, power relays, dehumidifiers, 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.
