Driven by a PicAxe 14M micro-controller and preprogrammed with different schedules, the grow box can also be connected to the internet for the remote management of temperature, water and light cycles through a browser or mobile phone.
Another feature allows for the LabBox Server to be Twitter enabled, providing you with periodic updates on.
- Current Temperature Readings
- Light, Pump and Fan Statuses
- Low Reservoir Notifications
- High-Low Temperature Notification
You can envision that the next step in this products connectivity would be to create ideal growing "recipes" of temperature, light and moisture readings and exchange these online with other community members to increase the efficiency of each crop.
As of today it looks like this project has been put on hold due to the lack of activity on the blogs and forum but if you want to learn more about the PocketGrow system you can still follow @PocketGrow or visit:http://pocketgrow.com.
