SMART AND SCALABLE

HortiPower lights such as the Nurser 4 are equipped with Mesh nodes and they find the best way to get their message across, even when devices get moved or unplugged. HortiPower Mesh incorporates dynamic channel hopping to ensure that the wireless connectivity remains healthy.

Traditional Smart Lighting Network
A traditional Smart Lighting Network has limitations such as maximum 50 nodes and the lighting devices have to be near the router. 
HortiPower Mesh Smart Lighting Architecture
The HortiPower Mesh architecture allows for 512 devices per gateway and a range of 5 to 100 meters. This is designed for horticultural applications where there are many internet-connected lights and large distances. 

SMART RANGE EXTENSION

Smart range extension allows networks to grow as more devices are added. Every HortiPower mesh-enabled light acts as a repeater, allowing you to manage your lights at large farms and multiple rooms, areas and buildings.

HortiPower Mesh Network with Parent and Child nodes
The HortiPower Mesh Network is self-organising. Parent and Child nodes connect automatically, each node can act as a Parent and as a Child. This design allows to have a large group of lights connected over a large distance such as a greenhouse or vertical farm.
The HortiPower Mesh is able to handle up to 16 layers

Web-based App

The network connects to a cloud-enabled platform. Users can easily log in to the web application and manage their lights remote. You can control and manage your grow lights from any device with the HortiPower web app.
The physical cloud server is based in the United States for the North American and global markets. For specific projects, physical cloud servers can be based in Singapore or Sweden.

The HortiPower Mesh can be managed through a web-based app and easy to use on a Computer, Macbook, iPhone and Android device.

GATEWAY

A gateway can connect up to 512 devices to the mesh network and cloud. Add more Gateways as necessary.

Up to 254 gateways can connect to a router
Up to 254 gateways can connect to a normal router

SCHEDULING

The scheduling functions give you precise control over the photoperiods of the lights. A consistent lighting schedule helps you run your farm better.

GROUPING

Lights can be added to zones to manage larger labs and farms. Settings and schedules are sent to all devices in each zone simultaneously, and zones can be modified with a few clicks.
