This is some update. It is now android compatible as well as windows, linux and raspberry pi. Just build it to your liking and publish your own personal stuff. If you know how to use the unity engine or wish to know. I have released a project with some files that allow you to detect nutrient deficiency in plants with drones or with web cam. Has the option to read arduino sensor data and virtually map your grow.

Is this out for Mac or Apple? I don't run any Microsoft, but I wanted to try it out on a large scale setup.


Wanted to let everyone know about a project I started called HERB.IQ, is open source and completely free. We currently have 2 developers and 2 bug testers working on the project including myself. We just put out our first stable release today, you can get it on our main site at sourceforge or our backup site on codeplex:

https://sourceforge.net/projects/herbiq

Thanks!

I'm doing some sensor work with a rPI Zero as a controller in my tent and a web front end. Definitely a WIP.

I am thinking power consumption (I have everything plugged into smart plugs and I have a Sense energy monitor - GREAT API!), temp, RH, soil moisture level, and a cheap little IR camera.

Does something like this exist already (I haven't found anything worth spending time on; lots of seed to sale enterprise software and a lot of journaling software) or am I reinventing the wheel here?

I'm mostly concerned with a camera and power controls/monitoring. I read here people are a bit iffy on anything but traditional light timers, but I'm going to counteract that with checks in the software and notifications.

Any thoughts?

Won a national science foundation award for it and now sell my own hardware and software that connect to the raspberry pi or any hardware that can run linux or an arm based version of windows.

If you want something like that though, your gonna have to make the electrical diagrams and source code yourself and tie it all together. Your gonna have a shotty time making computer vision models for that ir camera and the only open source ndvi stuff and other spectral image algorithm are also mine but I have those on private github. Your gonna need to develop if statements to control the actuators as well. Also gotta design it so that its plug and play because everyone on here will rip it apart otherwise and make you feel dumb for doing something they couldnt. If you need help, comment in my YouTube video or direct message me.

Definitely wouldn't mind working with you on something like this. I don't seem to be able to DM. Can you shoot me a DM and we can chat offline?

Understood on the code stuff. Hence trying to use some off the shelf products, like smart plugs and maybe even an open off the shelf security cam with an API.

Wasn't really thinking ndvi stuff right away, but that'd be dope. Especially since I'm new to growing... Any automated nutrient deficiency detection or probe-less soil moisture level detection would be great. Although, I did just order a Blumat kit to automate watering anyhow. Still, data is data! ‍

The reason I want a webapp is relatively straightforward... I'm lazy. I wanna peak in on my tent, environmentals, video, power, etc, without leaving my couch... from my couch on my phone.

Are you the same guy as Kindbot.io? I knew I had seen something similar before.

He posted here. https://www.rollitup.org/t/free-grow-software.345468/post-14590555

some of you might be interested in kindbot.io
we've built an environmental controller which uses smart plugs to regulate lights, AC, fans, pumps
Since kindbot has temp/humidity sensors and a camera, you can save photos and stats for review
Remote control your grow with the mobile or web app
it all fits onto a device the size of your lighter... pre-sale coming soon.
Sounds similar to hydrobot. Something the NSF gave me a patent for...

Where do I find this at? I'm looking for the android version. Looks awesome!!!!

Downloading now, love it, love open source anything, love decentralized anything. Happy to provide feedback, been so busy with initial setup I haven't had time to log anything and I'm growing a new strain. This is perfect, thanks for sharing with us. You could be a dick and try to be a millionaire, lol.
