While the typical grow room employs the use of irrigation 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-accurate system for 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.
