Biopod is an app-controlled micro habitat that automatically controls and regulates temperature, light, humidity, rainfall and ventilation. Grow anything from herbs and vegetables to a rain forest for your pets. Biopod replicates the ideal environment for your plants, animals or both!

Biopod was first inspired by the conservation of the sensitive dart frogs that live in rain forests around the world. Frogs are vital to the ecosystem and many of them have become critically endangered or even extinct in the wild due to human expansion, settlement, pollution, toxins and many other factors. Conservation is the heart of Biopod and we’re working towards saving the planet.

The difference is that the Biopod is a complete terrarium/vivarium/paludarium; it comes with all of the essential components necessary to a typical terrarium/vivarium/paludarium setup. Creating such a setup yourself requires a lot of time and the separate purchase of the many parts that make up the housing, such as: lighting, sensors, heating, pumps, nozzles, tubing and many more, often adding up to a hefty price! Building such a setup yourself is
extremely costly, can cause many compatibility issues, needs to be manually adjusted and monitored frequently, and requires you to do an immense amount of research beforehand. With the Biopod, everything is done for you so you can start housing your favorite animals/plants right away with a tap of a button and
watch the Biopod come to life!

The Biopod currently has two temperature sensors, one for the temperature of the air and one for the temperature of the ground substrate (water, solid, or semi-solid substrate).

The Biopod has one conveniently located humidity sensor near the top right of the right-side panel.

Here is the breakdown of the number of LED’s in the Biopod units:
EDEN: 28 (+ 8 infrared LED)
TERRA: 28 (+ 8 infrared LED)
AQUA: 28 (+ 8 infrared LED)
AQUA II: 49 (+ 8 infrared LED)
GRAND: 56 (+ 16 infrared LED)

The continuous wavelength output of the LED’s is between 400nm – 800nm. However, there are two main peaks between 420nm-450nm and 630nm-650nm, with a minor peak between 540nm-570nm. These LED’s closely resemble natural light output similar to the sun.

Yes! The Biopod has a UV emitting CCFL which emits UVB-B rays.

The specific wavelength of UV rays emitted is between 295-305 nm.

The resolution of the camera is HD (720p).
