Legal Nevada Cannabis Crop Is Saved by SmartBee Wireless Sensors

Las Vegas, NV – (August 10, 2015) – SmartBee Controllers announced today that their SmartBee Controllers system installed in the Alternative Medicine Association (AMA) grow facility in Las Vegas was the major factor in saving their crop when an A/C unit failed. The AMA is the first Nevada state medical marijuana approved growing site.  The installed SmartBee® products includes The Hive™ controller, the LTH (Light Temperature Humidity) and CO2 sensors, plus a Water Content Sensor and several Stinger™ Smart Strips in which each socket is programmable and allows associated devices to be controlled.  The complete SmartBee® system integrates all the SmartBee® wireless sensors into a mesh networked system that enables the AMA to benefit from a Networked Garden™.  The system allows for remote monitoring and control of various environmental aspects of the grow room using a smart phone, tablet or PC.

According to Paul Churchill, the AMA master grower, the SmartBee® system in the first month has already saved their crop when an air conditioning unit in a grow room failed late at night.  The SmartBee® LTH sensor alerted when the temperature reached a preset threshold and sent an email notification.  “The SmartBee system paid for itself in the first month by saving our crop at a critical stage of its growth” said Paul Churchill.   As the AMA facility is built-out, they plan to continue to use SmartBee® systems to enable remote monitoring and control.  “The SmartBee User Interface is easy to understand and use, plus the system gives us all the data we need to effectively run our facility, protect our crop and increase our ROI”, commented Churchill.  “The User Interface was easy to set up, understand and gives us the data we need to maximize our grow”.  The 10,000 sq ft facility has 160 lights which are divided among 8 flowering rooms plus a propagation & veg room, drying/processing/curing area and a production facility.

SmartBee Controllers has been installing SmartBee® systems in greenhouse & grow facilities in California, Colorado, Michigan, Nevada and Washington through its Commercial Consulting Division.  Commercial operations from several dozen lights to 1000-light facilities are working with SmartBee Controllers to install the SmartBee® system for more control of their grow environment.  With the mesh network, SmartBee® systems get stronger as more sensors and smart power strips are employed.  Interested commercial growers should contact the SmartBee Controllers Commercial Division for more information and a free quote.

The products are sold under the SmartBee® brand through all major grow stores in the U.S. and Canada or directly through the www.smartbeecontrollers.com web site.

The Smartbee handheld meter accurately measures water levels and temperature in substrate to aid hydroponics growers

LAS VEGAS, NV – November 10, 2014 – Swarm Technologies LLC announced that its SmartBee Controllers™  Group today launched a Handheld Water Content Meter (WCM) that allows hydroponics growers a new tool to accurately measure grow media moisture levels as a percent of saturation from 0% to 100% with 1% resolution and 5% accuracy.  Additionally, the SmartBee™ WCM measures substrate temperature from 35°F to 120°F.  This assists the hydroponics grower to control their dry-down so that plants are not too hydrated and not too dry.

The SmartBee™ WCM delivers highly accurate real-time water content measurement which is critical for growers who want to use precision irrigation tools to achieve optimal yield and quality.  This allows growers to customize and implement an irrigation strategy that best suits the needs of the plants.  The system includes a Li-Ion battery with a USB charging port for extended use.   Additionally, the SmartBee™ WCM has an LCD dot-matrix display, user calibration and a low-battery indicator for ease-of-use.

According to Skye Hanke, Chief Product Officer with SmartBee Controllers™, “Over-watering and under-watering is the most common reason for plant stress, leading to crop loss.  The SmartBee™ WCM offers a cost-effective tool to indoor gardeners for irrigation efficiency, increased Return-On-Investment and its good for the environment.”

The SmartBee™ WCM retails for $395.00 and includes one SmartBee™ Water Content Sensor Probe.  Additional sensor probes retail for $99.00 each or a probe five-pack for $449.00.

The SmartBee™ WCM is available now on the SmartBee Controllers website at www.smartbeecontrollers.com or soon at grow stores throughout the U.S.   The Company will begin shipping the first week of December.  To become a SmartBee Authorized Retailer, visit the SmartBee Controllers website and click on the Dealer Sign Up button.

Other SmartBee™ products include the Hive Gateway which wirelessly communicates in real-time with the SmartBee™ sensors including the Light Temperature Humidity sensor & the Light Temperature Humidity/CO2 sensor and the SmartBee™ power management devices such as the Smart Strip 1 (SS1) & the Smart Strip 4 (SS4).

About Swam Technologies LLC

Swarm Technologies LLC is headquartered in Las Vegas, NV.  The company is committed to designing, manufacturing and delivering the most advanced and highest quality wireless sensor technology for the hydroponics and other markets.  Swarm Technologies LLC is a privately-held company.

Las Vegas, NV – (PRWeb – April 13, 2015) – Swarm Technologies LLC announced today that their SmartBee Controllers began shipping its innovative wireless controller & sensor systems to the hydroponics market.   The product line includes The Hive™ controller which integrates all the SmartBee™ wireless sensors into a mesh networked system that all work together giving the hydroponics grower a Networked Garden™ for more control of an indoor or greenhouse garden.

The product release of the SmartBee Premier Environmental System includes the Hive™ controller, the SmartBee™ LTH (light Temperature Humidity)/CO2 sensor and the Smart Stinger™ 4 power strip.   All of these and future products are operating on the Zigbee Pro mesh network that allows The Hive™ to wirelessly communicate with up to thousands of SmartBee sensors.   A custom designed Graphical User Interface (GUI) allows for remote monitoring and control from any smart phone, tablet or PC.  The SmartBee™ GUI includes customizable alerts, thresholds and notifications via text or email for timed zoned irrigation control, lighting control and environmental control.  This gives horticulturists complete remote control, whether it’s a 10 light grow room or 5000 light commercial operation.  The SmartBee Controllers system can expand as an operation grows, giving flexibility to start small and easily increase environmental control as needed.  Plus it is made in the U.S.A.

The Hive™ is the center of the system and is the main portal for all wireless communications with the SmartBee™ sensors and through the internet to the gardener’s mobile device or PC.  The Hive™ delivers continuous, secure data from the sensors which allows the gardener to monitor and control based on the User Interface graphics.  The Stinger™ Smart Strip 4 has four independently controlled outlets that allow a gardener to turn on or off each connected devices that are controlled by the SmartBee™ Hive Gateway via a smart device.

Another SmartBee™ product includes a wireless Water Content Sensor Module (WCSM) with up to six connected probes.  The wireless WCSM assists growers to monitor their plant’s irrigation needs based on actual water content rather than just watering time.  The WCSM gives the grower the data needed to determine the amount of water the plants are using.  Once the set points are in place, the Hive Gateway gathers and analyzes the sensor data and can water as required.  This maximizes the efficiency of the irrigation plan, saving water and enhancing results.

The Company has begun installing SmartBee™ systems in several large grow facilities in Colorado, Nevada and Washington through its Commercial Consulting Division.  Commercial operations should contact the SmartBee commercial consulting group for a free evaluation and quote.
