Greenhouse Environmental Control Systems
Advances in computer technology have made owning and operating greenhouses easier than ever before. Solar Innovations®’ environmental control options can aid the home gardener or professional horticulturist by automatically adjusting temperature, humidity, and light intensity from within the greenhouse or from a remote location. An environmental control system will improve plant life within greenhouses by providing a constantly monitored atmosphere, producing a more uniform product.
Environmental Control Systems:
- Adjust Temperature
- Adjust Humidity
- Control Light Intensity
- Monitor Atmosphere
Greenhouse environmental control systems can be automated according to the gardener’s specifications. Greenhouse accessories, including fans, vents, misting and fogging systems, and heating or cooling systems, are automated in stages corresponding to the gardener’s selection and plants’ needs.
Greenhouse Accessories Controlled by Environmental Control Systems:
- Misting Systems
- Fogging Systems
- Heating Systems
- Cooling Systems
The first stage of implementation can be as simple as an on/off switch to control circulation fans. By semi-automating a control system with a humidistat, a thermostat, or a timing device, the accessories will run only when necessary, lowering operating costs and saving energy. Fully automated systems have the option of being controlled by a semaphore or remote programming system on a PC or even through a cell phone, saving a substantial amount of time. These fully automated systems can be designed to maintain a specific set of criteria for constant plant comfort, taking into account the conditions outside the structure that may affect the plants’ growing atmosphere.
In addition to common greenhouse accessories, Solar Innovations, Inc.’s environmental control systems can be designed to accommodate advanced features like evaporation coolers and foggers, drip systems, semaphores, remote programming, photo and light sensors, and soil sensors. The horticulturists’ time can now be spent tending to plants rather than tinkering with their growing environment. Beyond the cost and time efficiency of the greenhouse control system, Mother Nature will benefit. Control systems reduce the need for chemicals to aid plant growth, as the environment is more closely adjusted to create the ideal conditions and reduce energy costs and waste.
