Got a question about Croptimus™? See if your answer is found below!
Each Croptimus™ camera can cover an area of 400m2. The number of cameras required may be affected by the design of your grow area (ceiling height for example) and any obstacles which might interfere with the camera's field of view.
No! The cameras are powered by the CAT 6 ethernet cable used to connect to your network.
The list of crop issues that Croptimus™ detects is expanding every day! At present our A.I. detects:
We are currently working on:
Croptimus™ is designed to be up and running in your facility within hours. While some installations may be more complicated due to the nature of that facility's layout, Fermata does not require that operations are suspended to perform the install and you'll be up and running in no time!
Once Croptimus™ is installed within your facility, the Artificial Intelligence algorithms require a 2-3 week calibration period, as every growing space is unique, and machine learning requires some time to fully acclimatize to your facility. During this time, meetings with your staff are held to determine what's important to your grow in terms of issues detected, and what the A.I. can safely ignore. Once this phase is completed, the automated system will notify you when any important issue is detected!
Images collected are processed locally at your facility by our A.I. classifier, then they are transmitted to your own company-specific Virtual Private Cloud on AWS servers via an encrypted connection. Once issues are verified by our IPM team, an alert is transmitted to the Croptimus™ application, notifying the user of the new issues detected.
The Friends of Fermata initiative is a collaborative discount program in which growers receive a 50% discount on Croptimus™ for 6 months, and Fermata obtains feedback from growers on how the solution is doing — win-win!
There are a limited number of spaces available, so to apply for the program, or simply get more information, get in touch!
Croptimus pricing is determined by the nature of your facility's design with respect to the number of cameras required to cover your canopy. A custom solution and associated pricing is designed for each of our clients. Typically costs represent a very small percentage of revenue per square metre or ft2. In actuality, given Croptimus™ provides a substantial return on investment, it pays for itself in relatively short order for most growers. To find out what your facility's costs might be, book a demo or free trial!
Hardware is provided to our clients at no additional cost.
Croptimus™ contracts are generally for 1 year; however, you may cancel the service at any time with only 30 days notice with no associated cost to you.
