I am excited to finally unveil Grow Computer and our first product, GrowStrip to this community.
This project was founded by @iancollmceachern and myself because we realized how challenging the PFC plans are to build, and wanted to make it easier for anyone to participate in the exciting world of digital agriculture.
We built the GrowStrip to productize many of the exciting functions of the ‘brain’, yet in a much more affordable and accessible package. Right out of the box, with no tools or expensive setup required, anyone will be able to monitor, automate, collect data, and share their grows with those around the world.
We believe that growers should never have to touch a circuit board, molex connector, or soldering iron to start collecting smart data on their grows. With that, we built the system to be entirely Plug N Play, so all lights, pumps, fans, sensors and other peripherals plug directly into the GrowStrip, and instantly see the readings and have the ability to control the outlets.
Since this is a hacker community, we are excited to announce that our entire software platform will have Open-Source APIs so anyone can build and share their own software for our ecosystem, and I am sure someone will be able to connect the OpenAg software eventually. I can only imagine what else you guys are going to be able to build.
We just launched the product on IndieGoGo on Wednesday, and hope that some of you guys here will be able to support our campaign. Since this community was so influential to our history, I would like to offer everyone here access to our SECRET PERK for an extra $50 off our already low price, which includes a temperature sensor, and IR capable camera.
Thank you for your help here, and I look forward to growing with this great community
