Motorleaf has been built primarily to help growers produce more, and a better quality product by automatically adjusting to the needs of your crop.
Save Time & Money
Saving time helps you two ways: Focus on the other aspects of running your business outside of the grow room and reduce man hours adjusting your equipment - we do that for you...
With automated adjustments to your crop, and notifications on when there may be a problem for you to look into - you decrease your loss, saving / making you more money.
Motorleaf builds separate components, each of which has a specific set of functions. They can operate separately, or if you add onto the Motorleaf HEART - operate as a larger whole. There are other hardware and software providers on the market, that offer some elements found within our hardware.
These alternatives are typically 4-5 times more expensive, and don't offer our range of features.
Motorleaf has been designed to fit the budget of every type of grower, and provide superior results independent of crop type and size.
Automated Grow Systems - Greenhouse Tech
What We Believe
Motorleaf believes indoor / city cultivation of crops will continue to grow; presently 15-20% of global food production is completed via urban agriculture...
To make this a reality, a total reinvention of automation has to happen, and Motorleaf has already made a huge leap forward.
Motorleaf is committed to a future where WHAT crops & their environment communicate (data) will dictate how the grow equipment reacts and adjusts.
Not only can Motorleaf software/hardware advise on best settings for a wide variety of crop types, but through machine learning we can predict problems and adjust accordingly - helping ANY indoor grower sleep well, (while they) grow well
The Motorleaf story
Motorleaf connects growers with their plants, and each other
Play our video to learn about the history of our company and about our hardware/software
Motorleaf hardware is designed to be plug n' play, and you decide which part of your grow operation you control/monitor and automate.
The best technology is defined by its lack of presence; which is exactly what our customers experience right out of the box. Each discrete Motorleaf hardware component fits within your existing grow operation; without taking room from your produce/potential grow space. Larger operations can simply connect multiple devices wirelessly.
It all starts with the HEART, one of 4 hardware units. Simply plug it in and start collecting Air Temp Humidity, & Light Level data. Connect any lighting hardware and feeder pump, and start automating their operation in seconds.
Other pieces of grow equipment (such as AC / heater) can be connected to the network, by connecting them to a PowerLeaf unit. The PowerLeaf connects wirelessly to the HEART which tells them when to turn on and off, based upon pre-set times or sensor readings from the HEART AND DROPLET.
The Droplet monitors everything that’s connected to a grower's water reservoir. Every 4 seconds the DROPLET wirelessly sends data to the HEART, information on water level, temperature, PH level, and nutrient levels - essential information for any grower to know, anytime.
The DRIPLET - allows growers to automate the delivery of PH and nutrients, again based upon timer setting or actual live grow conditions.
The Motorleaf Software "Big Green" is accessible online or offline, via any wireless enabled device (Desktop, Laptop, Tablet & Smartphone).
