YieldTek was born out of a desire for affordable technology in the garden. After realizing companies are charging thousands of dollars for a few sensors and some relays, I began writing Open Source software to help make your grow room all it can be. Our mission is to bring you affordable, reliable Open Source software and hardware that helps make your day to day in your garden easier. We believe in harvesting all of the data that is normally lost in your grow environment such as temperature, humidity and appliance status. We can then look back at this data to maximize our yields and help our plants grow to there full potential. If this sounds like something you would be interested in don't hesitate to reach out! If you want an even better option jump over to our wiki using the link at the top of the page and start reading about all of our software!
HOBloom is a BeagleBone based automation system build to give you back control of your grow room! Control and configure your lights, fans, humidifiers, dehumidifiers, air conditioners and heaters from any device with a web browser. It comes out of the box with far red lights support and can automatically turn them on when your lights go out! It has a nice dashboard to monitor and manage everything from and can be opened up to be accessible from anywhere in the world that you have an internet connection! The best part, all the software is free and the hardware is not proprietary. It can be built with parts off amazon and your local hardware store. Check out the shop above to order pre assembled smart outlets or entire pre assembled units!
You can see a live demo of the automation system here. To interact with the grow room you can use the bot listening in the twitch chat! Say 'help' in chat and the bot will reply to you with a list of all valid commands. You can turn the exhaust and circulating fan on or off. You can also find much more info on the chat bot and how the voting system works here.
