ClimateMinder's battery/solar operated wireless sensors collect real-time soil and environmental data and transmits this data to back-end servers through a cellular network. Users receive text messages or email alerts on their cell phone and/or use the Web site or GrowMobile cell phone application to browse measurements and control alert and control conditions.
The ClimateMinderTM product consists of three parts:
GrowFlexTM – patent-pending software and hardware technology that makes the sensors and controls you put in your field or greenhouse work together seamlessly and flexibility.
GrowMobileTM – a mobile application that provides remote access to, and control of, the system from your mobile handset or PC.
ClimateMinder ServerTM – a secure server that operates the GrowFlex network and connects it with the GrowMobile application.
GrowFlex is a wireless network of sensor and controller nodes, the sensor devices themselves, the relay controls, and the Gateway that communicates with the ClimateMinder Web Server.
