SmartBee wireless mesh networks are implemented using IEEE 802.15.4 ZIGBEE wireless technology. Our wireless mesh network is a special type of wireless ad-hoc network. SmartBee systems are deployed to provide dynamic and cost effective connectivity within greenhouse and grow room environments. The more sensors you have, the stronger your mesh network will be.

Today’s grow rooms are often made up of various controllers that don’t work together as a team, which provides for an inflexible and incomplete solution for the Indoor Gardener. The SmartBee Control System is made up of several custom wireless sensors and remotely controlled outlets which are designed to work together. No bus cables or Ethernet lines, just power the devices and the control begins. The hardware cases allow for easy mounting, hanging and installation. With the SmartBee Control System your lighting, irrigation and atmospheric controls are all working together allowing for total control with an integrated solution.
A wireless mesh network is a communications network made up of radio nodes organized in a mesh topology. Wireless mesh networks consist of a client, nodes, routers and gateways. The clients are often laptops, cell phones and other wireless devices (i.e., iPad) while the nodes and routers forward traffic to and from the gateways which may or may not be connected to the Internet. A mesh network is reliable and offers redundancy. When one node can no longer operate, the rest of the nodes can still communicate with each other, directly or through one or more intermediate nodes.

Besides the superior quality and ease of use of our products, they are also outstanding in their flexibility and expandability. You build the system to fit your needs whether a giant grow area with 100 lights, or a room in your closet. Our Base or Premier Environmental Systems are affordable and we offer simple to add hardware if you wish to expand on the systems functionality. The SmartBee Software is the first of its kind giving you the freedom to manage your garden efficiently not to mention take that vacation you’ve been wanting to take. No other company offers this quality of life, or kind of customization and flexibility.
The SmartBee products were designed for indoor gardens. However, we don’t discourage the use of our products inside greenhouse applications. If you would like to know how SmartBee Controllers can benefit your greenhouse contact our sales team.
Yes. Our Sensors are designed for easy installation in most if not all grow tents, provided you have a way to hang or mount the sensors.
Yes. You can use SmartBee products in aquaponics systems to control power, irrigation and various environmental conditions on most devices in your system.
For cooling, we suggest using our SmartBee Environmental Base System. It couples the Smart strip 4 together with our LTH Sensor to provide maximum control of your environment. Plug in a exhaust fan to the smart strip and it can cool your room. If temperatures still get too high, our software will turn some lights off and will turn them back on when the temperature drops below your chosen set point. In most indoor environments, lighting is the major source of heat. Our system will let you know when it gets too hot by sending you crucial data alerts via email and or text messages. We believe this software feature will save you money and help you avoid potential problems.
Yes. SmartBee gear is compatible with most other manufacturer’s equipment currently on the market today. It is designed to interface with any equipment that’s 120 & 220 Volts and uses a standard NEMA 5 plug configuration.
We use digital and analog sensors on our sensor and control boards, but simplify the use of them by providing you with technology forward, state-of-the-art software to operate the devices. This eliminates the need for you to be in your grow room. All of our devices are wireless and provide you with no more knobs and switches to interface with. Most importantly, no more cables and no more complicated installation. Just touch and adjust.
No. You can access and control SmartBee products locally via the Hive’s built-in wireless hot spot.
