Clever hardware aside, the key attraction to those who’ve taken up Plexus so far is the convenience of access to data via the Green Brain website. Green Brain can be accessed from any Internet-connected computer and a wide range of smart devices. If you’d like to see if Green Brain operates on your phone or tablet, or if you’d just like to see what the fuss is about, go to our demo site at www.greenbrain.net.au. Log in with the username firstname.lastname@example.org and use the password demo.
Once in, feel free to roam about and explore features as you like. You’ll discover that the Hub doesn’t do anything more exciting than report its battery trace, though you know… if you like that sort of thing…
Clicking on the Shiraz West site will open up the possibilities a bit, with graphs for Soil Moisture Tension (from Gypsum Blocks) and battery available.
The action picks up like a high-speed car chase and explodes into a dazzling shower of choice when you open the Shiraz East site. Ok, that’s laying it on a bit thick, but this site displays values for Soil Moisture Content and Soil Temperature, at eight depths, from EnviroPro probes.
To the right of the graph you’ll find icons for Calendar, Full & Refill lines, places to add irrigation & rainfall data and so on. Have a tinker.
Below the graph you’ll find you can turn individual graph traces on and off to isolate what’s of interest to you, and below that, a place to make comments. Feel free to do that too. All that we ask is that you don’t write anything that would offend your grandmother. Unless Granny’s an outlaw biker. In which case you may need to raise the bar a bit.
