Reliable Controls Customer Focus: Northstar Organics

Northstar Organics is a 10-acre organic farm in Central Saanich, on Vancouver Island, BC. Crops in two of their greenhouses rely on perfectly controlled heated environments to grow successfully. “The Reliable Controls system has literally been trouble-free,” says Shawn Dirksen, owner of Northstar Organics.

In this video project profile, Shawn describes how he has full control of his boilers and the ability to adjust setpoints, even when he’s off-site, thanks to the simple and flexible nature of his Reliable Controls automation system, powered by the MACH-ProWebSys™—a BTL-listed BACnet Building Controller (B-BC) with a built-in BACnet Operator Workstation (B-OWS).

Occupant comfort is an important goal in building automation, even when those occupants are plants. Bert Kinnis of Enhanced Control Distribution has been a Reliable Controls Authorized Dealer since 2004. We’re proud of the work he’s done with Northstar Organics.
