The Autonomous Cultivation Controller w/ the "Track Your Tree" mobile app
The Autonomous Cultivation Controller w/ the "Track Your Tree" mobile app

The Autonomous Cultivation Controller (ACC) by IoT Gardens, Inc allows an indoor hydroponic gardener to view their garden or grow operation data and statistics including; grow room temperature, light intensity, and reservoir pH levels from the convenience of the "Track Your Tree" mobile app.

View your Grow-Operation data from anywhere, safely retain garden statistics and watch it update your Track Your Tree dashboard dynamically on your mobile device.

The Autonomous Cultivation Controller (ACC) allows a grower to set ideal pH level thresholds for a hydroponic reservoir. When the pH probe senses the reservoir pH levels are out of range, the peristaltic pump(s) will automatically turn on, dosing the hydroponic reservoir with pH Up (alkaline) or pH Down (acid) to bring the reservoir pH levels to the previously set range.    

The Autonomous Cultivation Controller (ACC) displays environmental data on the 4.3” TFT (thin-film-transistor) Intelligent Touch Screen from the various sensors within the device.

Risks and challenges

IoT Gardens was incorporated as an Original Equipment Manufacturer; yet we feel that substantial dependence on tier-one supplies is perilous for OEMs. It debilitates our control over expenses, lessens our capacity to remain on top of innovation advancements, and makes it hard to guarantee that our providers are working in a socially and environmentally practical form.

We follow practices that will ensure we provide our customers with the latest technology at affordable prices.

• Hold control over integral parts that have the most critical effect on the aggregate cost of merchandise sold.
• Consider a vendor's development potential.
• Remain close to supplies that can provide early data on shifts in the economy, innovation in technology, and emerging laws.

With several years of experience in engineering we know that some challenges and even delays are inevitable. Rest assured that IoT Gardens, Inc. is committed to keeping every backer up-to-date with any changes in schedule.
