Greenhouse Environment Monitoring System

- Dec 22, 2020-

Why should the greenhouse be "smart"?

Plants that are usually placed in greenhouses have strict requirements on the growth environment, and indicators such as temperature, humidity, and carbon dioxide concentration need to be maintained within a stable range. In the early greenhouses, various sensors were arranged to check manually at regular intervals, and to adjust the temperature controller, humidifier and other equipment in the greenhouse. However, with the increasing number of greenhouses and the need for more and more sensors in a single greenhouse, the wiring of communication cables between sensors has become very difficult, and it has become increasingly difficult to manage the greenhouses manually.

What is included in the smart greenhouse?

The smart greenhouse solution is based on accurate agricultural sensors to monitor the fields in real time(use 4G LTE Industrial Router solved transmission questions), using cloud computing, data mining and other technologies to perform multi-level analysis, improving the ability of agricultural production to respond to natural environmental risks, and turning the disadvantaged traditional agriculture into a highly efficient modern industry . Agricultural environmental monitoring mainly monitors and captures air temperature, air humidity, ultraviolet intensity, total solar radiation, PH value, wind speed, wind direction, wind force, rainfall and insect status. The agricultural field can be monitored in real time through meteorological equipment.

Real-time monitoring of the greenhouse environment: remotely view the real-time environmental data of the greenhouse through a computer or mobile phone, including air temperature, air humidity, soil temperature, soil humidity, light intensity, carbon dioxide concentration, oxygen concentration, etc. Remote real-time viewing of greenhouse video surveillance videoes can save video files to prevent crops from being stolen (4G LTE Industrial Router is widely used on remote surveillance).

The greenhouse environment alarm record reminds in time, the user can directly handle the alarm, the system records the processing information, and can remotely control the greenhouse equipment. Users can visually view the real-time graphs of greenhouse environmental data and grasp the growth environment of greenhouse crops in time.

Intelligent control: When the environmental data collected by the sensor exceeds the set value, the controller brakes (or remotely manually) starts the relevant hardware equipment to heat the crop growth environment, fertilize and water, ventilate, and roll the curtain to add or subtract light radiation to achieve crop growth Intelligent and precise process control.

Intelligent alarm system: The system can flexibly set the upper and lower thresholds of different environmental parameters of each greenhouse. Once the threshold is exceeded, the system can alert the corresponding manager through mobile phone text messages, system messages, etc. according to the configuration. The alarm reminder content can be flexibly set according to the template, and different reminder contents can be set according to different customer needs to meet the individual needs of customers to the greatest extent.

The associated greenhouse equipment can be viewed according to the alarm record, and the greenhouse equipment can be remotely controlled in a more timely and fast manner, and the greenhouse environmental problems can be efficiently handled. It can find equipment in abnormal state in time, and remind the manager in time through SMS or system message to ensure the stable operation of the system. Sub-area detection: control and management of the divided areas in the same shed, which can achieve environmental technical indicators such as different temperature and humidity and different gas configurations in each planting area. The user can monitor and query the data of each area through the host computer. Individual control and overall coordinated control can also be performed on individual blocks.

Irrigation and spraying fertilizer control: water irrigation and pesticide spraying adopt a set of pipeline system, which can be operated automatically or manually according to the growth mode of plants.

Remote automatic control: The system uses advanced remote industrial automation control technology to allow users to remotely control greenhouse equipment without leaving home (4G LTE Industrial Router offers stable network). The rules can be customized to allow the entire greenhouse equipment to be automatically controlled with changes in environmental parameters. For example, when the soil moisture is too low, the greenhouse irrigation system automatically starts watering. Provide a mobile phone client, customers can remotely control all the equipment in the greenhouse through the mobile phone at any place.

Node failure notification: When the on-site control node fails, the administrator can be notified in time via the central platform, mobile phone text messages, and alarm information.

Video real-time monitoring: The system can send back video information in real time according to user needs. By connecting to the broadband Internet, it can realize the Internet remote login access function, which is convenient for remote monitoring.

Permission management: Users enter the system through the login button. Different user permissions are different. Super users have all operation permissions. Ordinary users can only view device status and videos, but cannot change permissions. According to different environments and plants, you can customize your own solutions. The smart greenhouse solution can control and adjust the environmental index in the greenhouse at any time, and provide the precise cultivation environment for the plants in the greenhouse, effectively improve the growth rate and growth quality, and increase the value of crops
