The invention discloses a kind of intelligent agriculture greenhouse, green walls, indoor green spaces, gardens, orchards, industrial greenhouses, hydroponic greenhouses control system, including can be with the temperature sensor of environmental information in sensing chamber, humidity sensor, soil moisture sensor, the temperature sensor, humidity sensor, the data message detected is sent to message processing module by soil moisture sensor, obtained data message is converted into text information and sent to subscriber’s central station by described information processing module, obtained data message is converted into text information and sends to display and show over the display by described information processing module, described information processing module passes on instruction to control module according to obtained data message, the control module receives instruction and controls temperature-adjusting device according to command information, humidity control apparatus, air-cleaning unit, watering device works, the present invention is reasonable in design, it is simple to operate, being capable of Intelligentized regulating and controlling temperature indoor environment, subscriber’s central station remotely can receive and transmit an order information to multiple greenhouses, improve the efficiency of management.The above plan is only for monitoring and reporting the conditions of the greenhouse, green walls, indoor green spaces, gardens, orchards, industrial greenhouses, hydroponic greenhouses.
In contrast, in addition to monitoring, controlling, and even reporting, our plan can have an irrigation program for each number of plants, etc., and has no restrictions on installing sensors and other equipment.
The main problem in existing systems is the lack of modularity, making it necessary to purchase a complete approach to upgrade the system. Designing the whole system on one board increases the possibility of failure, circuit complexity, and the impossibility of expansion. Existing systems are limited in increasing the number of solenoid valves, which prevents expanding the irrigation space. It is not possible to offer different programs depending on the type of plant. The number and type of sensors are limited. Existing systems operate only on the GSM platform. There is no alternative if GSM is disconnected and current systems do not allow the storage of incoming reports and commands.
For this purpose, a comprehensive and intelligent system has been designed that solves all the problems of the current systems. Among the capabilities of this system, the following can be mentioned: Separating the mainboards, controllers, and sensors from each other and modulating them, which solves the problem of limiting the definition of device elements (solenoid valve, pump, and sensor). The possibility of increasing the number of solenoid valves indefinitely will expand the geographical space of the coverage area. The possibility of increasing the number of pumps indefinitely will make it possible to define different intelligent programs based on the information received from the sensors and adjust the solenoid valves. Ability to increase the number of sensors per pump and solenoid valve to provide different applications based on other plants. Use GSM, GPRS, and Internet platforms as a backup. Establish communication between the mentioned boards wirelessly. The possibility of direct connection of the device to the Internet to receive the program and send reports and send orders and receive messages through a server, in which case the information sent and received can be stored.
