The Internet of Things (IoT) and smart building technologies are changing the commercial cultivation of cannabis. Growers who incorporate these elements in the design of their facilities do not have to be restricted by the limitations of human-powered management.
There is no need to deal with the challenges of managing many devices in a fragile operation. Instead, you will benefit from extraordinary automated capabilities that boost performance and efficiency while also reducing costs.

In comparison to traditional methods, Smart cannabis facility design can dramatically reduce operating costs in many ways. In the case of a Canadian intelligent facility for instance the savings include:
- Energy use: 90%
- Fertilizer use: 40%
- Water collection 90 percent
- Cost of labor 50%
Apart from improving efficiency and reducing expenses, smart automation reduces crop losses, improves yields, and increases the consistency of quality.
IoT sensors as well as smart controllers are a great method of controlling temperatures, air velocity, humidity, and other variables that impact the artificial ecosystems in indoor environments.
The most sophisticated cannabis facility design includes sophisticated sensors that detect microclimates in every zone which allows growers to make informed choices about where to place heaters, fans as well as other air-flow equipment. With the right building platform, it is possible to take the operation to the next level by intelligently automating your equipment to provide greater quality and better yields.
Platforms that have advanced fault detection and diagnostics let you apply predictive maintenance and help troubleshoot and enhance the efficiency of energy management.
