This product currently has a one week lead time.
This product is for (5) add-on Water content sensor probes to be used with:
SmartBee™ Water Content Sensor Module comes with (1) Water Content Sensor Probe
– These WC sensors measure moisture levels within the growing medium and will alert the grower if the levels fall below a set level. This sensor can more simply be used as automated watering timers that turn watering systems on and off at set times and durations.
Maximum of 6 probes per WWCS (additional probes availble for purchase individually). Each probe has a 5 foot reach from the SmartBee Water Content Sensor Unit
Why is the SmartBee better than water timers?
The SmartBee™ Irrigation Components
enable you to take control of your garden. While the typical grow room employs the use of irrigation timers to maintain a consistent watering schedule, their main drawback is they're based on timing rather than the plant's actual water needs. The result of this can be a highly-accurate system for poor plant yields. Thankfully, SmartBee
irrigation controls have been specifically designed to combine the benefits of timed feedings while considering the volumetric water content of your grow medium. Making sure your plants are properly monitored is one thing, but do you know how much water your plants actually use? It's mitigating the potential for disaster by keeping your plants out of the danger zone that is the basis for SmartBee's
irrigation controls. Once set points are put in place, the Hive Gateway gathers and interprets sensor data and waters accordingly, thus maximizing the efficiency of your current irrigation system.
SmartBee's irrigation control system
utilizes water content probe technology that initiates or postpones timed waterings based on the plant's actual needs. Giving plants only the water they need, and growers an increase in the consistency and profitability of their yields.
