Profitable operations of indoor cultivation facilities require efficiency at every step. From the use of energy for lighting and control of environmental conditions, to the delivery of nutrients, water and use of labor. The common thread to all of these is data. Whether it be live data from sensors and control systems, or batch data recorded in work management tools or financial systems, it’s essential to be able to collect, manage, visualize, analyze and report your operational data.

SkySpark® Analytics software provides the features you need to optimize your cultivation processes and profit by providing you with the ability to:

Collect Data from Your Systems via a variety of built-in data acquisition connectors including: Bacnet IP, Modbus TCP, Obix, Haystack, SNMP, Sedona, OPC UA, MQTT, SQL, CSV import (manual batch or automated), and a REST API.

Automatically Calculate the Key Performance Indicators you need to be able to track results against KPI’s relevant to your business. With SkySpark you can implement virtually any KPI that’s relevant to your business. Examples include:

  • Nutrients consumed per yield (lb. or kg)
  • Water consumed per yield (lb. or kg)
  • Revenue per yield (lb. or kg)
  • Yield (lb. or kg) per kWh of energy consumed
  • Man-hours per yield (lb. or kg)
  • Watts per sq. ft. or square meter

Automatically Perform Analytics to Identify Faults, Deviations, Anomalies, Trends and Correlations. SkySpark’s real power is its ability to automatically apply analytic rules and algorithms against your data to identify patterns that represent inefficiencies, deviations, anomalies and opportunities for improved performance.
