Automatic ventilation control
Automatic ventilation control adjusts the vent position based on the ambient temperature inside the greenhouse. This means that as the temperature rises, the further the vents open. Automatic ventilation control takes the outdoor conditions into account, such as wind speed and temperature. This enables the controller to maintain the ideal climate in the greenhouse.
