THE CITYBLOOMS TECHNOLOGY STACK
Cityblooms has created a comprehensive technology platform to help farmers transition into the digital age with ease. The days of overly complex, and expensive, farm automation systems are giving way to decentralized computing and wireless networks enabled by advancements in Internet-of-Things technology. Cityblooms exists to help famers leverage this technology to improve operations and reduce complexity. The Cityblooms team wants farmers to be able to spend more time on what is most important. We developed our platform after years of experience managing farming operations, with important features we know growers need.
Our system is designed for any controlled growing environment including greenhouses, hoop houses, indoor farms, grow rooms, prop houses, and commercial vertical farms. Enterprise farm solutions are often too costly for small to mid-size growers, and Cityblooms can deliver a more affordable solution with similar robust commercial farming functionality. Our wireless, internet-enabled solution is not only easier to install and maintain than other wired solutions, but is also flexible enough to move from one location to another when needed.
The system is flexible enough that you can pick and choose what elements of the Cityblooms solution meet your needs.
The Cityblooms Commander is a flexible suite of on-farm hardware devices that combines precise environmental sensing with robust equipment automation. The Cityblooms Commander works with Cityblooms Monitors -- wireless sensor clusters placed strategically about your farm to gather information; and Active Agents -- devices that intelligently automate irrigation, nutrient management, heating and cooling, lighting, and more. With our Control Panel App you can interact with all of your devices- adjust setpoints for critical farm equipment, calibrate sensors, and create irrigation schedules etc -- from any mobile device. We have designed our solution so that everything runs smoothly and without interruption -- even when the Internet is down. Furthermore, Cityblooms understands that farmers want compatibility, so we endeavor to make our systems work with a growing list of 3rd party devices and legacy systems.
Cityblooms Control Panel App
Your Cityblooms Dashboard is the online portal to your farming operation, providing powerful data analytics and farm management tools. Your data is valuable, and we can help you manage it and secure it, to enhance your growing operation and save you time. You can add "Modules" to your Dashboard that give you increased functionality. Our Monitoring Module empowers you to analyze current growing conditions and emerging trends, and get alerts of abnormal conditions before they become serious problems. Our Farm Management Module allows you to track and forecast crop production, assign and manage farm labor and maintenance tasks, and create the digital records to take the headache out of regulatory and food safety compliance.
WHAT'S DIFFERENT ABOUT CITYBLOOMS?
1. RELIABILITY: We designed our solution so that it always works -- even when the Internet doesn't. We provide "logic where you need it," so that you can access information in the cloud to better run and manage your farm, without relying on the Internet for your critical farm systems to work without interruption. Need to stay on top of or remotely manage growing operations in multiple locations? Our solution ensures you see everything that's happening in real time, 24/7, with the peace of mind that critical systems never miss a beat.
2. FLEXIBILITY: We have designed the system so that we work not only with Cityblooms hardware, but also with a growing number of 3rd party devices and off the shelf sensors, giving you flexibility to design a solution using the Cityblooms platform that works with your legacy systems and meets your needs. Not only that, our solution is wireless, which means you won't need installation and maintenance of what can amount to miles of control wire. And -- if you need to adjust what crops or sections of your growing operation you are monitoring, it's easy to move things around.
3. TRACEABILITY: Our farm management platform tracks crop production schedules, equipment maintenance, and labor -- so you can do "paper free" digital food safety audits, and eliminate time consuming regulatory paperwork. We also enable historical yield analysis, and even enable enhanced customer service from your vendors with service ticket creation and tracking capability.
