Description

Small but mighty

The small size of the AgrowTronics AgrowGateway AG-G-MUSB Micro USB Gateway betrays its capabilities. The Micro USB Dongle AG-G-MUSB Gateway is integrated with a fully-featured and powerful Wi-Fi Client and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) Gateway.

Use the AG-G-MUSB USB to enable remote monitoring and control of BLE sensors in the greenhouse from anywhere in the world.

Keep your data in check, and on the record

AGrowTronics uses the AGrowCloud platform to automatically load sensor data and store it for historical review. Any sensors that identify readings that exceed preset thresholds will automatically generate notifications via SMS, E-mail or Voice calls.

Hassle free installation

The AG-G-MUSB Micro USB is easily provisioned using the AGrowTronics AgrowApp mobile application  (Available in the Apple Apps Store or on Google Play). Simply scan the QR code on the back of the AG-G-MUSB Micro Gateway or   package. Then, the AgrowApp will guide you through the process of connecting the AG-G-MUSB Micro Gateway to the Greenhouse Wi-Fi Network.

Once connected to the network, the AG-G-MUSB Micro USB automatically registers with  AgrowTronics’ AgrowCloud platform.

Adding new BLE sensors is just as easy, with a simple one-step process. Simply use the AGrowTronics AgrowApp to add a new BLE sensor. Scan or enter the product code and the AgrowApp will automatically scan for the BLE sensors and register it with your account.

Once the BLE sensors are registered, data immediately starts flowing to the AGrowCloud System.

The AG-G-MUSB Micro USB Gateway supports Dual Band 2.4GHz and 5GHz Wi-Fi frequency bands.

Secure greenhouse data

The AG-G-MUSB Gateway has an embedded encryption chip that ensures all communication is protected and cannot be intercepted. The encryption chip stores the AG-G-MUSB private key in an impenetrable vault. The private key never leaves the device, ensuring it cannot be compromised.

Greenhouse monitoring can be hard, why not make it easy? The AG-G-MUSB is the premier solution for seamless and remote full-scale greenhouse environmental monitoring, control, management, configuration and associated analytics. Feel at ease when you’re away from the greenhouse with a responsive monitoring solution. Review data remotely, no matter where in the world you are. No time to constantly check reports? No problem. The AG-G-MUSB Gateway lets you know if any BLE sensors show data outside of your predefined parameters. Choose to receive emails, text messages, and/or notifications whenever a sensor reading is outside of your network configuration criteria
