Greenhouse in Japan

Greenhouse Monitoring and Environment Analysis
This case study revolves around the monitoring of conditions inside of greenhouses and
the application of that data to improving operations and driving overall business success.

On the left you will see a variation of this use case, deployed recently in a Korean greenhouse along with partner n.Thing.

Introduction

01Operator facing application based on Thing+ used for monitoring of data,
creation of alarms, and analysis of data

02LoRaWAN Gateway and Temperature/Humidity Sensor edge nodes from RisingHF

03Environmental monitoring in plastic greenhouse

04Automated alarms and warnings from environmental and door status

05Prevention of theft and accidents through close monitoring of entry point

Use case Benefits

Realization of optimal growth environment
based on continuously collected data
Detection of abnormalities and wasted energy
in heating and ventilation systems
Immediate notification of door access and alarm based on time of day or schedule

Solution Overview

01Greenhouse humidity, temperature and CO2 is tracked in real time via
sensors placed into each greenhouse at equidistant locations

02An optimal “growth curve” is created based on this data and the type of crop
being grown inside the greenhouse. This growth curve is used by the
farmer to modify his growing systems

03The Thing+ web application is used for device-agnostic monitoring of data and
data analysis from a central location

04Security of greenhouses is enhanced by tracking and setting alarms based on
the status of greenhouse entry points

The Thing+ cloud and web application was used as the core of the operator-facing experience,
with hardware from partner RisingHF handling the collection of data on premise

Real-time status screen

Full-picture Greenhouse Status Dashboard

In this specific case, 17 greenhouses were placed on a map view with the data collected in real-time viewable either through clicking on specific greenhouses, or through the list view on the right. This view is primarily used for greenhouse operators to quickly respond to any issues detected, in a traditional “command and control center” way

Detailed Data Screen

Per-Greenhouse Detail View

Upon the operator drilling down to view a single greenhouse, all sensors placed physically inside are seen in the actual position through a “virtual twin” of the greenhouse. Specific devices can be drilled down into, where historical alarms, graph data, and current status can all be immediately viewed

This data is also used for setting up automated alarms and status updates through the Thing+ “rules engine” where SMS messages are sent for critical problems, such as extremely high/low temperatures, or doors that have been left open
