Why use wireless sensors?
Extra measurements are important
Did you know that in most cases the climate conditions are not the same everywhere in the greenhouse? For example, there may be slight differences in temperature or relative humidity. To acknowledge and react to these possible deviations, you will need (more) sensors on site. However, installing more wired sensors involves high costs because it requires new cabling and installation by a service technician.
Benefits of working with wireless sensors
Wireless sensors give you the flexibility to place them in any location in your crop production facility. Whether to measure the microclimate around the top of your plants or around the fruits in the lower part, you’re free to decide which additional data you want to obtain to gain more insight into the crop environment. Extra sensors enable you to identify any anomalies quickly and tackle the cause immediately, without having to check everything yourself manually.
Benefits with wireless monitoring:
- Easy installation: Wireless sensors are easy to install yourself. You can place them wherever you want to take measurements.
- Flexibility: You can move them to a different location whenever you want to obtain data in a different spot. This gives you the flexibility you need.
- Low cost: Installing or replacing a sensor requires no additional cabling or support from a service technician.
- More insight: The extra data you obtain will give you more details about the growing conditions. This helps you to optimize your control strategy.
