Smart Devices for an Increasingly Connected World
From a desire to be able to know exactly what is happening at all times in a pile of compost, Vital Grow Inc.’s Smart Compost Thermometer was born. Being long-time composters ourselves and having an intimate relationship with the process has helped us create a device that WE would (and do) want to use. The features included are a culmination of experience and imagination.
The thermometer will take temperature readings at regular intervals (every 30 minutes) and will send the information to your personal dashboard. Regularly timed readings ensure that you know what is occurring inside the compost pile at all hours of the day/night.
Protected from the Elements
IP67 rated enclosure. This means that the thermometer probes and base station are highly weather resistant against rain, snow, and dust. Additionally, they have held up with no issues in our testing against extremes in both cold and hot weather.
There is no limit to the number of thermometer probes that can connect to one base station. You can have 1 probe to monitor a hand turn pile, 3 probes for a small pile to get a good average of internal temp, 10 probes in a long windrow, or even 100 probes distributed between multiple windrows.
Long Distance Communication
The thermometer probes and base station communicate via long range radio waves. This allows the probes to be distaned from the base station. If your business office, home, or headquarters is on the other side of your site, you can still receive readings without worry.
