QuantoTech Solutions has supplied more LED lights with integrated Wi-Fi control and cloud storage capabilities to a university research facility to aid in ongoing research.



“Our customers are asking us for more capabilities to customize their light output and control the lights from afar. This example of precision agriculture supports QuantoTech’s mission of serving Northern and isolated communities. This technology can also be used to support inexperienced growers remotely. An integrated cloud storage and control system is an integral next step for the next generation of smart lights that need to meet the growing demands from our customers,” said Alycia van der Gracht, Founder.

QuantoTech Solutions is deploying a patent pending two-level grow pilot at a seedling nursery in the interior.

“Due to an increase in wildfires producers have found they need to substantially increase seedling production. The current supply of seedlings only covers a fraction of the amount needed to replenish the loss from forest fires. Acquiring more new space and building greenhouses is an expensive undertaking, adding a second level to existing infrastructure is a better solution which also minimizes wasted vertical space,” said Alycia van der Gracht, Manager of Operations and Supply Chain.

QuantoTech Solutions has built a cloud-based, enclosed plant monitoring and control system. The system is being used for a research project that evaluates cost effective sensor and camera solutions that can accurately monitor individual plants. This project was made possible with funding from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada.



“Providing a cost effective means to id a specific plant will be beneficial to both large-scale commercial growers as a way to quantitatively observe specific plant growth and health, as well as, smaller facilities which may not have access to on-site expert knowledge. The software provided in the cloud based system allows for simple visualization of data providing plant growth trends,” said Alycia van der Gracht, Manager of Operations and Supply Chain.
