Hydroponics is one of the cultivation methods that uses water as a plant growth medium. In this technique, a mineral solution is added to the water solvent, which enables the process of nutrient uptake by the plant. Several important parameters need to be observed to use hydroponic cultivation methods such as temperature, humidity, water, and nutrient requirements. Sunlight is also needed for the process of photosynthesis to take place. This research uses hydroponic techniques in a hydroponic growth space, with LED growth lights as an alternative to sunlight because the space is covered without sunlight. Monitoring of the output in the box was detected using a temperature sensor, a humidity sensor, an ultrasound sensor to detect the height of the plant, and a water level sensor with the height of the water measured as the plant medium. The sensor measurement results in the hydroponic growth chamber are described as follows: the fan cooler operates when the temperature is > 30oC, and the humidity > 60%. The water pump works when the water level is less than 50% of the set point. Control on the lights was carried out with the LDR sensors each reaching a setting point of >500 in bright conditions, and <500 in dark conditions. The average update / data time received in the web is 2.4 seconds.
