Year-round gardening for hungry hobbyists

July 5, 2016 – Talk about locally grown.

To bring healthy food to the fingertips of North Americans year-round, OPCOM Link USA, Inc. is teaming with Garden Media Group to introduce a new line of next generation, smart indoor gardening solutions.

OPCOM Farm, the suite of next generation hydroponic farming systems introduced at CES in Las Vegas in January 2016, merges the basics of farming with new, sensor based, one-touch technology.

This will allow consumers to have access to fresh, healthy food grown in a stylish indoor gardening system, all accessible and controlled from your smart phone or tablet.


“Our reputation for helping people live healthy lives for more than 20 years translates into our passion for helping people grow clean, fresh food 24 hours a day and 52 weeks a year,” says Eldon Su, general manager of OPCOM Link U.S.A., the new U.S. division of OPCOM Inc., a Taiwanese company and global pioneer in digital security, lighting and FDA-approved medical imaging equipment since 1993.

“Our Farms are the smartest and easiest way to grow fresh food indoors,” he explains. “These systems allow people the choice to be as involved or hands-free as they want when growing and caring for organic food right in their own homes.

“They also make attractive displays at home or in your office lobby.”


Each OPCOM Farm has a smart operating system that knows exactly what plants need – water, light, temperature, humidity, nutrients and carbon dioxide – and when they need it.

Built-in LED lights operating at different wavelengths adjust to the plants’ stage of life from seed to harvest, while necessary nutrients are automatically delivered at the right time based on what’s growing.

OPCOM Farms use 90 per cent less water than traditional outdoor farms and gardens, making it a very attractive solution in areas where water is limited.

“Garden Media is the perfect firm to introduce our new brand in North America,” says Su.


“The firm has an outstanding reputation for understanding the marketplace, successfully launching new garden products, knowing the market trends, and even identified health and wellness in their 2016 Garden Trends Report without even knowing us.”

Katie Dubow, creative director at Garden Media, describes OPCOM Farm as a game changer. “These farms validate our vision and make growing edibles year-round simple and affordable for anyone, green thumbs not required.”
