Optimising indoor climates
The philosophy behind innovation
A unified power and communications system
IGS’s patented power and communications system offers total remote control of any indoor climate, without the use of expensive and unreliable computers or capacitors. And yet every LED light, sensor and camera has an internet address so you can control and communicate with them as well as learning what they are doing.
Our systems enable you to run Total Control Environment Agriculture (TCEA), automatically delivering optimised recipes of weather – the sunlight, the wind and the rain – to your crops. This will optimise your productivity across yield, quality and consistency.
Indoor farms are fraught with inefficiencies including:
- Too much or not enough light
- Flickering lights
- Inconsistent climate control
- Fluctuating temperature
- Manual testing systems for nutrient delivery
These systems impede growth and churn operating budgets.
IGS’s smart power and communications system ensures a smooth, constant flow of power to lighting and maintains control over HVAC systems for delivery of appropriate air temperature and humidity. The result is steady, predictable crop growth.
Reduce labour costs with intelligent automation
When your power and communications systems interact seamlessly you can harness software and IoT to support workflow automation, freeing your workforce to focus on the things humans do best. Using our system, it’s possible to significantly reduce labour costs.
A future-ready option
IGS’s platform helps you quickly normalise disparate systems that control the environment in your facility whilst leaving room for expansion.
High-efficiency closed loop ventilation
Wouldn’t we all love to have control over the weather? Weather is generated from time to time within a given climate and comprises light, water and air: illumination, precipitation and ventilation. Each of these systems consists of a set of characteristics.
Each one of these characteristics has an almost infinite range of possible values, for example from the black of total darkness to blazing, pure white light and every colour variant in between. Being in control means having the ability to calculate and manage these massive variables across three dimensions and figure out what mix or recipe of weather is going to deliver the optimal yield, qualities and consistency.
Agritech companies tend to focus on LED lighting control, often at the expense of the other two dimensions. IGS has also developed and patented the most effective and energy-efficient ventilation system currently available to the market.
