Automate your entire grow room with Niwa Grow Hub
With the all-new Grow Hub, Niwa brings commercial-grade features, such as controlling your plant’s climate (humidity, temperature, and VPD) or automated watering and custom light schedules to the domestic grower at an affordable price.
With the goal of supporting a hassle free and high performance grow, Niwa has developed powerful software that enable growers to automate their setups in a very simple way- just by having users plug their existing devices (such as lamps, fans, extractors, humidifiers, dehumidifiers, A/C, pumps, or heaters) to the Niwa Grow Hub.

Features & Benefits of Niwa Grow Hub
Every growers setup is unique to their needs and the Niwa Grow Hub allows users to keep their setup and automate at the same time. Growers can configure their Niwa Grow Hub to control up to four of the following devices at the same time:
- Cooler (A/C)
- Water Pump
Each outlet is capable of handling 10 Amps (resistive load) either at 120 Volts or 240 Volts for a total of 15 Amps MAX. Larger loads can be handled through accessories (not included).
Please Note: The Niwa Grow Hub is capable of handling input/output voltages either 120 Vac or 240 Vac. If you plug your Niwa into a 120 Vac wall outlet all the four outputs will be 120 Vac, if you connect it to a 240 Vac wall outlet all the four outputs will be 240 Vac. The most common household voltage in the United States and Canada is 120 Volt, however, some growers might have access to a 240 Volt grid. If that’s the case, please make sure all your devices work with 240 Volts.
For those moments when growers are concerned about what’s going on in their garden, there is no need to worry anymore! With the Niwa Grow Hub app, growers can now check the current status of their garden by glancing at their live dashboard, anytime, anywhere, and in a secure way.
Once the Niwa Grow Hub app is up and running, growers can either pick one of the existing Niwa grow recipes or create one themselves. It is at this step, when creating a grow recipe, growers can begin to customize the ideal environment they’re seeking and the different schedules wanted for their plants. Environmental settings such as VPD, temperature, humidity along with watering and light schedules are all completely customizable, so growers have optimal control over their plants.
Plants have different needs in terms of their climate, lighting schedule, and how much water is required at different times of the day. Creating a grow recipe within the Niwa Grow Hub app allows for several stages to define the different parameters needed for each stage of a plant. To continue building out a grow recipe, growers need to select the “next stage” button in order to customize their setting per stage within the plant’s growth cycle.
Logging & measuring the different parameters affecting the success of a crop is fundamental in order to achieve maximum performance. The Grow Hub has a built-in datalogger accessible from our app anytime where you can view historical data in the ‘stats’ section and get insight to how your plants are doing and what is affecting them.
Notifications & Alarms
Having alarms and notifications will allow growers to determine the temperature and humidity thresholds important for them and alert growers when their lamp is performing poorly and also for when one of the sensors is having an issue.
The Niwa Grow Hub incorporates the reliable WiFi 2.4Ghz standard to guarantee growers' access to their plants from anywhere, at any time. Also, Niwa has built strict security protocols into their software to guarantee absolute privacy and protection.
Automation in Minutes
Building a setup capable of monitoring and automatically controlling growing equipment simultaneously is often difficult as it will require different devices such as temperature, humidity, or ventilation controllers and monitors, which adds cost and complexity. The Niwa Grow Hub combines all the control of multiple pieces of grow equipment into one single device and app, easing plant management and reducing the risk of making mistakes at an affordable cost.
Monitoring is important to avoid fatal mistakes and earn maximum yield. But it is not enough. If your setup cannot automatically control the lamps or operate the different equipment to automatically correct a risky situation such as excess of temperature when your monitor warns you, it may be too late. The Niwa Grow Hub closes the control loop for your peace of mind.
The Niwa Grow Hub is enabled with Over-The-Air Firmware and app updates that guarantee the latest features are instantly accessible to all growers. On top of that, the Niwa Grow Hub is fitted with the Niwa Grownet standard that will connect growers with the next generation of Niwa Grow devices effortlessly and wirelessly.

Niwa Grow Hub Automated Grow Room Controller Reviews
- good for my tent kit
controls my few pieces of equipment perfectly
- Awesome product, the best support/customer service
What a great product. Very helpful for monitoring the garden. The support and customer service Niwa provides is out of this world. I was having problems connecting the hub to my WiFi. I got frustrated and wanted to return the hub. They agreed to take it back and refund my money. Then Niwa started reaching out to me offering help. I was stubborn at first. Then one of the founders of Niwa reached out to me offering help. I softened up a little and waiting over the holiday weekend for their help. Tuesday morning they called and walked me through the setup of their amazing product. Great product, great support, great customer service. I will be buying two more as gifts for my buddies.
Thank you Niwa
