Maximize your yields by preventing unnecessary losses with Monnit Remote Monitoring Systems.
Your greenhouse, hydroponic, and aquaculture farms need to be cared for, just like your plants and aquatic life. Greenhouses and these types of farms and facilities require regular upkeep to maintain compliance standards and foster optimal conditions for growth. Water leaks and open doors are easy to handle, but it’s easy to get overwhelmed working to maintain consistent, optimal temperature and humidity levels. This is where Monnit Wireless Sensors connected to the Internet of Things (IoT) can help with the best solutions for remote greenhouse monitoring, hydroponic monitoring, and aquaculture monitoring.
Monnit Wireless Sensors unburden you from worry. Gone are the days when concern over excessive humidity, soil moisture, and temperatures keep you up at night. Monnit takes greenhouse, hydroponic bag and bottle, and aquaculture cage and tank conditions off your mind and puts them on your phone.
Monnit Sensors deliver alerts via email, text, or voice call according to thresholds and settings you set within a secure cloud-based software in the event of an issue. Monnit keeps your growing facilities as healthy as a flower in full bloom.
Remote Monitoring for Business - How Monnit Works
What is greenhouse monitoring, or how do you monitor conditions in a greenhouse? A versatile wireless sensor system can help you monitor and control many parameters of greenhouse conditions and environments. You can measure critical conditions such as temperature, humidity, light, air quality, soil moisture, irrigation water leaks, fan failure, HVAC system performance, and more.
Then, suppose any condition moves beyond your preset sensor settings in cloud greenhouse monitoring system software on your mobile device or computer. In that case, you’ll get an instant alert via text, email, or call on your smartphone.
What is hydroponics? Hydroponics is a planting or cultivating process without using soil but with water, nutrients, and oxygen. It’s possible to produce higher production quantity and quality. Hydroponics is cleaner, and fertilizer and water use tend to be more efficient.
What is a remote hydroponic monitoring system? A remote hydroponic monitoring solution features temperature, humidity, light, electrical conductivity, air quality, water detection, and other wireless sensors to help farmers stay in the know on their mobile devices and keep crop growing conditions optimized. Hydroponic sensors are critical to monitor the electricity, water, and power at every farm and ensure each system—from irrigation to lighting to distribution—is working correctly.
Aquaculture, aquafarming, or fish farming involves the breeding, raising, and harvesting of fish, shellfish, and aquatic plants. Aquaculture is recognized as an environmentally responsible way of increasing food resources and commercial products with healthy habitats. Aquaculture also helps replenish the stock of threatened or endangered aquatic species.
A remote aquaculture monitoring system is easy to install and continuously monitors tank pump performance and important water conditions like temperature around the clock. Adhering to environmental and health standards is essential as a food producer. If conditions such as water temperature move outside of preset thresholds, instant phone alerts can help farmers take corrective measures to avoid fish fatalities and loss. Aquaculture monitoring is crucial to aquatic life.
The benefits of Carbon Dioxide (CO2) in greenhouses and hydroponic systems are clear. It supplements photosynthesis and production. As your plants use CO2, that will cause gas levels to drop, and a significant enough drop could significantly affect your bottom line. You can receive instantaneous alerts and 8-hour, time-weighted average readings. The Monnit Wireless CO2 Sensor will alert you if levels are detected above or below ideal settings whether you’re in the workplace or sound asleep at home.
Maintaining a strong seal on doors and windows is key to keeping environmental conditions in your greenhouse, aquaculture, or hydroponic operations steady. The best way to accomplish this is with a Monnit Wireless Open-Closed Sensor. Connectivity with a magnet sends an “open” or “closed” alert immediately to your phone. Monnit is the key to keeping your greenhouses and hydroponic and aquaculture farms operating at peak efficiency with easy-to-read charts and adjustable settings.
Monnit provides a wide assortment of temperature sensors for any environment. The Monnit Standard Temperature Sensor delivers readings in even the harshest of weather conditions with a measuring range of -40°C to +125°C ( -40°F to +257°F ) and optional weatherproof housing. It’s not only an ideal greenhouse temperature sensor; it’s an essential sensor in aquaculture and hydroponic monitoring solutions too. Readings are digitally logged, time-stamped, and graphed for easy assessment in compliance with any regulation.
Managing relative humidity (RH) and maintaining optimal 50% to 70% RH levels is difficult. Trusting remote monitoring of your greenhouse and hydroponic and aquaculture facilities with a Monnit Wireless Humidity Sensor is the best way to foster healthy environments. The Humidity Sensor monitors RH with a +/- 3% accuracy, plus temperature and dew point.
Monnit Wireless Voltage Detection Meters detect power flow, displaying data as “Voltage Detected” or “No Voltage.” Batteries, ventilation fans, pumps, filters, and other equipment in your facilities are the best applications for our 0–200 VDC and 0–500 VAC devices. You can quickly connect the Voltage Meters to round out your wireless monitoring system. If you have electrical equipment that you need to confirm is on or not, this is the Monnit device for you.
Long-day growers or “summer plants” like California Poppies and lettuce require more than 12 hours of light. Wireless Light Meters deliver readings on light intensity in lux (lx) from 0 – 83,000. Light Meters are an essential part of our wireless environmental monitoring solutions. Now you can not only grow summer plants offseason and maintain natural light patterns, but be assured that you’ll be alerted if the light intensity thresholds change.
Everything that transports water is prone to leaking or cracking at some point in its lifecycle. Using a Monnit Wireless Water Detection Puck to monitor your pipes and irrigation equipment raises the alarm whenever water is detected. A Wireless Water Rope Sensor can be placed along walkways, walls, and pipes to detect water and help prevent damage from a leak. Our Water Detection Sensors can be configured to detect the presence or non-presence of water.
Are there areas of your operation that are off-limits to all but a select few? Or are you just worried about unapproved activity after hours? A Monnit Wireless Motion Detection sensor uses passive infrared (PIR) technology to sense movement. The sensor’s a perfect addition to our monitoring systems. You can set the device, so it is only active during off-work hours. That’s the security and peace of mind Monnit can bring you every day.
Measure soil water tension and temperature in your greenhouses with our Soil Moisture Sensor. You’ll know how much and when to water your crops or plants to prevent water stress and increase yield throughout your growing operations with this ideal greenhouse monitor. The two-in-one sensor features a resistive granular matrix element to measure soil water tension and a thermistor-based temperature element. It’s easy to install and works within a broad spectrum of environments and temperatures.
The Monnit Wireless Resistance Sensor works as an electrical conductivity (EC) sensor to measure hydroponic water solutions' electric current and conductivity. With a corrosion-resistant submersible lead, the sensor reports analog data calculated into a resistance measurement. This helps you determine the availability of nutrients like salts in hydroponic water solutions. The Resistance Sensor is also helpful in monitoring batteries and equipment used in greenhouse and aquaculture management.
You'll receive an instant alert anytime conditions fall below or exceed predefined thresholds.
