Greenhouse temperature control for modern market gardeners

Updated: Oct 5, 2023

For some farmers, it’s hard to see greenhouse automation as a solution for anyone other than commercial growers. They might not have the cash flow right away, which limits their access to technology that can be a true game-changer for their operations.

But what if I told you that automation doesn’t have to be pricey, or complicated to manage?

Or that you could have the perfect entry-level solution for greenhouse automation for USD 35/month? Would you be surprised?

The hardware part of the Greenhouse Starter Kit includes:

  • A central controller;

  • A wireless temperature sensor;

  • Two opening sides.

“But Sarah, what if I don’t have a motor for the side roll-ups in my greenhouse?”

No worries! I have a solution for you — the Auto Roll-up bundle, developed in collaboration with the greenhouse manufacturer and dealer of agricultural and greenhouse-growing supplies, CT Greenhouse.

This bundle allows you to add two motors to your Greenhouse Starter Kit at an affordable rental of USD 85/month instead of USD 35/month.

Bonus: The Auto Roll-up bundle comes with a warranty of 5 years, offering you peace of mind and ensuring long-term reliability plus hassle-free roll-up functionality!


As for the software, the greenhouse temperature control service offers a range of free features like:

  • Smart Temperature Management: After setting the desired temperature range for morning, day, and night, the Greenhouse Starter Kit continuously monitors and adjusts the temperature inside your greenhouse, creating optimal conditions for plant growth. It even ensures a smooth transition during ramping.

  • Alert Notifications: Stay informed about any deviations or abnormalities in your greenhouse's temperature! The Greenhouse Starter Kit sends you effective alerts, ensuring that you can take immediate action to prevent potential crop damage.

  • Remote Control and Access: This grants you the freedom to get away from the farm without any worry! With remote control functionality, you have the power to monitor and adjust the temperature settings from anywhere when you’re on the go.

  • Proactive Greenhouse Maintenance: Skip the guesswork and shorten the learning curve! By automating temperature control, the Greenhouse Starter Kit reduces the risk of human error and promotes a proactive approach to managing your greenhouse's climate.

Flexibility and Upgradability

As an entry-level solution, the greenhouse temperature control service provides a solid foundation for greenhouse automation. As your greenhouse requirements evolve, you can easily upgrade your system by paying the price difference. This ensures that your automation solution grows with you, accommodating your changing needs and preferences.

PSSST! If you add the automation of your heater and/or ventilation system, you’ll get 50% off!

Proactive Maintenance and Support

One of the standout advantages of the Greenhouse Starter Kit is its proactive maintenance and customer support. In the event of any deviations from the set parameters, the temperature controller sends you instant alerts, enabling you to take swift action to rectify the situation. With this proactive approach, you can address potential issues before they escalate, safeguarding your plants and maximizing your yields.

On top of that, not only will you have access to proactive maintenance, but you’ll also have access to the proactive help of the dedicated customer support team. The support team is here to assist you every step of the way, providing guidance, troubleshooting assistance, and ensuring a seamless experience throughout your automation journey.

Oh, and I left the best for the end: if something breaks while you’re using the greenhouse temperature control service, you get a replacement on the house! And yes, forever.

Automate you roll-ups

Start by installing the central controller and temperature sensor to connect them to your opening sides. Although the installation is easy enough so that you can do it yourself in about an hour, you can also ask for help from a certified installer.

Settings and alarms

After the installation of your Greenhouse Starter Kit, you’ll need to configure your temperature settings and alarms in the app. This shouldn’t take more than a few minutes. Once those are set up, you won’t have to worry about going back and forth to your greenhouse to regulate the temperature and open the sides. No more back-and-forth means less interruption, which could save you up to 10h per week, as we said earlier!
