Automate Watering Schedules Based On What Plants Need

Water Content Sensor

While the typical grow room employs the use of irrigation controls timers to maintain a consistent watering schedule, their main drawback is they’re based on timing rather than the plant’s actual water needs. The result of this can be a highly-inaccurate system resulting in poor plant yields.

Thankfully, SmartBee Irrigation Controls have been specifically designed to combine the benefits of timed feedings while considering the volumetric water content of your grow medium. Making sure your plants are properly monitored is one thing, but do you know how much water your plants actually use? It’s mitigating the potential for disaster by keeping your plants out of the danger zone that is the basis for SmartBee’s irrigation controls. Once set points are put in place, the Hive Gateway gathers and interprets sensor data and waters accordingly, thus maximizing the efficiency of your current irrigation system.

SmartBee’s irrigation control system utilizes smart water content probe technology that initiates or postpones timed watering based on your plant’s actual requirements.

SmartBee Irrigation Controls supply plants with the correct amount of water and provide growers with an increase in the consistency and profitability of their yields.

SmartBee Water Content sensors measure moisture levels within the growing medium and will alert the grower if the levels fall below a set limit. This sensor can more simply be used as an automated watering timer that turns watering systems on and off at set times and durations.
