Sense2Grow: Measuring to Grow

Header image: Sense2Grow: Measuring to Grow

Sense2Grow easily connects sensors to each other to generate data that can be used to manage and monitor your business processes. It converts data into information, giving you a better and more up-to-date picture of your business practices. This can yield new insights on how to improve and renew your business practices. One of the locations where the system currently is installed is in a greenhouse where roses are grown to monitor humidity and CO2 levels, as well as smoke detection.

Open platform for everyone

Sense2Grow is a simple and universal open platform, to which any party can connect any type of sensor. Because everything comes together on a single platform it is easy to combine and process data. All data is conveyed to the user through a single channel and is presented in real time on a computer screen, smartphone or tablet. A floorplan of a greenhouse, for instance, allows the user to access measurement readings such as temperature, humidity, or luminosity for every location in the greenhouse.

Safe and reliable

Sense2Grow uses a constant and reliable wireless data connection. Robust security guarantees that the data received is authentic and reliable, and can easily be traced back to the right sensor. The security of the system is based on underlying technology from chip cards, tunnel information systems, national calamity sensor networks and other high-tech systems.

Scalable and affordable

The system’s modular structure and scalable architecture make it possible to install a small-scale sensor network that can easily be expanded, and the sensors used are affordable. This means that every entrepreneur can determine his own business case. Once Sense2Grow has been installed, costs are limited to the purchase of the apps that you can use to design your own dashboard and a small service fee per sensor for support and hosting of the Sense2Grow system.
