About

AutoLiv, is a smart hydroponics system that makes it possible to grow plants indoors with minimal effort and experience. It is supported by our web application, which allows you to preset the frequency and duration of watering, and lighting for your plants.

 

 

Simply plant the seed and select one of our preset growth settings, and AutoLiv will do the rest of the job in growing the plant!   

 

 Pre-installed Growth Settings

AutoLiv is an automated system that can run on its own after you have made the initial settings. You do not have to worry about forgetting to water your plants or being too busy to look after it as AutoLiv will perform these routines for you. You can select from the pre-installed settings in our web application, which have been specially designed for various plant types.

Minimal Maintenance  

Our system requires minimal maintenance work. You can expect to top up fresh water once every fortnight as it has a very water efficient design. Nutrient solution is recirculated in the system and minimises water wastage.

Knowledge of Experienced Farmers  

Our team has been actively volunteering in an organic hydroponics farm. Currently, we are collaborating with experienced farmers to transfer their horticulture knowledge into our database. Our database contains a list of preset growth settings for various plant types that you can select directly from the AutoLiv Application. Hence, you do not need any prior knowledge or experience to experiment with growing something you have never tried before.

Direct Harvest

Direct harvesting of vegetables at home ensures that you have access to the freshest ingredients to prepare nutritious and healthy meals for your beloved family. Your produce is free from preservatives and do not have to travel long distances, hence it will retain most of its nutrients upon harvesting.

Flood and Drain Mechanism

Flood and drain mechanism allows the frequency of watering to be controlled. An optimised water cycle is key in ensuring that your plant will absorb the maximum amount of nutrients when flooded. Draining also ensures that the plant is not waterlogged and can breathe freely.

Pesticide-free

The produce from AutoLiv are also free from pesticides as you can control what goes into the growing process of your plant. The plants will also not be susceptible to soil-based diseases in the hydroponics setup.

Risks and challenges

Minor Bugs in Software
We are developing our application to allow you to control the light and irrigation settings via your smartphone. While we have done extensive development and testing before the launch of our application, there might still be some minor bugs. We will continue to test our application after it was launched and deliver regular updates to you to give you the best experience.

Cost Uncertainty
We are in the process of sourcing for a reliable manufacturer that is able to deliver our promises to you. While we will always do our best to source for a high quality manufacturer at reasonable cost, we cannot guarantee that we can produce our products at our targeted cost. In addition, we might not be able to secure large enough orders to allow us to negotiate for favourable cost with potential manufacturers. These uncertainties translate to cost uncertainty for us.

Plant Harvest
Many environment factors can affect plant’s growth. Germination, yield and time to harvest may vary from time to time as you are dealing with living organisms that cannot be fully controlled.

However, be rest assured that you will have 100% transparency from the team through our regular updates on our website. In the event that we might not be able to deliver our promises, we will inform our backers and offer a full refund.
