Installation at BT Innovation Centre

Installation at BT Innovation Centre

Today we installed a small system in BT's Adastral Park Innovation Showcase, it is an indoor system that runs under an LED grow light system. As it is a self contained system, all they have to do is make sure the water is topped up and add some nutrient solution every two weeks to keep the plants thriving. We planted this system with basil and mint as the combination of the two aromas fills the room it is in a treat.

While I was installing it, Etholle George from BBC Radio Suffolk was recording for her show and popped in to see how I was doing. It was lovely to see her again and I did a cheeky plug for Aponic in a mini interview with her.

Yikes that is bright!

We are working on our microprocessor control unit that will report the nutrient levels, temperatures and humidities to a phone app so that you can keep an eye on your grow tubes when you are at work or on holiday. In this case it will output the results to a big screen next to the grow tubes in the innovation centre.
