While the cultivation of Marijuana is still prohibited by the Federal government of the United States, many states around the country have passed medical marijuana legislation which lets people grow the skunky herb for medical purposes. Because of such laws, the marijuana growing industry has exploded, and is now stepping into the future. iMD has announced that the company is working on an iOS and Android app which would allow a user to remotely control the R-Quest Hydroponics EMC-5000 controller which is the brains behind indoor growing operations. The controller regulates grow lights, cooling fans, nutrient pumps and monitors CO2 levels. The controller currently is accessible via a web interface, and iMD is working to extend that interface to mobile devices.
“This is a huge advancement to our flagship product, the EMC-5000. The network interface allows for peace of mind, which is priceless in this industry. Further, it opens the door for many other important capabilities, such as security, including cameras and alarms. Can you imagine being able to log on and actually view your room, no matter where you might be, at any given time of the day? This is a significant breakthrough for our company and my hat goes off to our engineering team.” - Jim Filkins, iMD’s VP of Sales
The EMC-5000 is a $2500 device. That may seem steep, but for the convenience and piece of mind the controller provides, it could be very well worth it.
