Spring and late summer are the two seasons where humidity-related diseases peak in greenhouses. We’ll break down the reasons why: You see, the presence of a sunny day can boost the levels of evaporation from soil. Furthermore, it can also… read more >
Using Plant-Based Measurements to Plan Irrigation
Being able to predict when crops will need watering could allow for reduced water consumption, leading in turn to reduced costs and a depleted environmental footprint. It also enables the growth of healthier, more productive crops and smaller failure rates.… read more >
Monitoring Human-Based Indoor Air Pollution
A team of engineers at Purdue University, Indiana, USA, recently undertook one of the largest studies of indoor air pollution to date. Using an array of sensors to precisely monitor four open-plan office spaces and track the flow of air… read more >
What is Data Logging and Why is it Used?
When collecting environmental data, a vital part of the process is the collection and analysis of the data. In most cases, this is performed by a data logger. Data loggers allow for data to be collated, analysed and processed, making… read more >
IoT in the HVAC Industry
How IoT works Imagine a reality where the devices in your house could talk to you, and could intelligently relay the information you need daily – a reality where your umbrella updated you about lousy weather by beeping and telling… read more >
Effects of Weather and Altitude on CO2 Sensors
If you are a user of CO2 sensors in industries such as HVAC, BMS, Horticulture, Livestock, or if you are measuring CO2 for any reason, you may not be aware just how much ambient pressure can affect your readings. In… read more >
How Temperature Monitoring Can Improve Workplace Efficiency
When it comes to workplace efficiency, one of the most critical factors that many people overlook is employee comfort. Uncomfortable employees are less productive employees. Temperature is key amongst a list of factors to ensure employees are kept as comfortable… read more >
Monitoring Soil Moisture Content
Crop farming covers 40% of our planet’s surface and consumes 85% of its freshwater. In the world of agriculture, success and failure can so often be determined by natural processes such as rainfall, temperature and humidity. An imbalance in one… read more >
How to Prevent and Monitor Indoor Mould
Indoor mould and damp are unfortunately fairly frequent problems within homes in the UK and is well known to be the cause of a wide variety of health concerns and damage to buildings. Thankfully, there are solutions and legislation surrounding… read more >
Feeding the World with Smart Agriculture
The development of the ‘Internet of Things’ and the use of smart technology is coming to the world of agriculture, and not soon enough. Technology can improve processes, yields and efficiency and is moving away from being a luxury and… read more >
Monitoring Moisture Levels in Coffee Production
The process of growing, harvesting and drying good quality coffee is one that requires a great deal of care and attention. A long list of variables can affect the end product, including temperature, soil quality, air quality and moisture. Moisture… read more >
Moisture Measurement in Grains
The UK is well known for its unreliable weather, providing rain when you wish for sun and vice versa. This makes crops liable to either becoming too dry or too moist, leading to complications further down the line. Therefore, moisture… read more >
