At the CannaTech conference in Israel, GrowDirector has presented its latest development in grow environment automation. According to the company, its grow controller turns plant cultivation into a fully interactive and automated process. "It’s scalable device: one device can control multiple units and can be used in a variety of environments. It can be used with a variety of sensors from multiple manufacturers", the company explains.
"We are aiming into cannabis and agricultural market which is known to be growing in double digits for the next few decades. We are now at the seed stage and looking for investment for faster penetration into new markets", Dima Chernobilsky, Growdirector CEO, explains.
He continues, "This device is very flexible and open source platform. The software is easy and interactive to use: once you connect all the sensors you have decide upon, you can easily create any rule you want and it will carry it out. From keeping a certain PH level and automaticity operate your pumps and keeping steady PH to EC/TDS level control and operation, as well as any other imaginable machinery you have in your grow room."

"It can talk to most of the standard analog sensors and you can connect up to 7 sensors to it. It comes with air and water temperature, soil and air humidity, and smoke sensors. So once you buy it, your setup is ready to grow. As small as it is, it also bypasses the electrical load limitation we all know and hate."
Beside 4 universal sockets, there are also 7 (input/output). By connecting it to relays, growers practically don’t have any electrical load limits. It is possible to connect to it any huge power consumption device through the relays and it will operate it with ease."
According to the company, the device is scalable thus facilitating the scaling up of the operations: "It’s scalable: once your grow facility increases, just buy a few more devices and control all of them from one device. There is no need to redo the costly setup once again", Dima concludes.
