PAR light meter

New on our Sensor Shelves—Introducing the ALTA PAR Light Meter

The ALTA® by Monnit Photosynthetically Active Radiation (PAR) Light Meter is now available to order. It’s here to deliver valuable data to professional growers about how much light their crops are getting.

You don’t need to be a professional grower to appreciate the importance of the ALTA PAR Light Meter. Especially when it helps agritech experts ensure your favorite crops grow their best in greenhouses, grow houses, and more.

The new full-spectrum, scientific-grade sensor is an essential tool for growers to accurately measure photosynthetic light levels that directly affect plant health and growth. Using the ALTA PAR Light Meter, growers can:

  • Monitor and manage grow light performance to reduce operating costs.
  • Optimize lighting in various environments to maximize growth and harvest quality.
  • Track plant light exposure and duration to maintain saturation levels, preventing damage and inhibited or excessive growth.

Ultimately, growers can reap the value of monitoring PAR light reactively and reach the exponential returns of their predictive and transformative light management methods—according to Walters’ Law of the Internet of Things (IoT).
