SolarSystem® Controller Features
To be honest I haven't even opened the box yet because I trust in your quality products,and just know it will perform beyond my wildist dreams.
it’s great, makes growing easy
Absolutely love it
This is a great controller. So far just in veg but looking forward to the future program. Love the ability to adjust spectrum. Took seedling plant out of a cabinet, put in new room and the plant is taking off. 1 more week heading into bloom . Next grow looking for full program.
I really love being able to have control of different light spectrums this is perfect for me to dial it right in! So easy to use and make your own unique schedules. I definitely recommend!!
This controller allows you to set your light schedule on / off times, adjust the light spectrum produced for the plants, set programs for various stages of grow cycles, and more.
Without the controller the lights will run at full power and you won't be able to adjust the on / off times or adjust the light spectrum for the plants.
If you're going to spend the money on these awesome lights you should spend the cash for the controller also or you will be limiting the ability / potential of these lights.
The controller is an amazing component which allows for a very versatile grow operation. The only thing is the amount of green light the controller itself emits. There have been many studies done on green light during bloom cycles with mixed results. It would be nice if the controller could dim the green light it emits or just have a sleep cycle if the controller is not in use and is running through the programs as expected. I have covered the controller with a piece of cardboard to eliminate the green light, otherwise the controller with the solar system is the way to go; absolutely love the solar system LED lights. I previously purchased the Solar Extreme and have used this for mulitple grows, the light continues to emit light as expected and this is after 5 years! Great, high quality products, wouldnt purchase a light from anywhere else. Keep up the great work CA Lightworks!!
Must Have,Awesome addition to an awesome light
I'm a new grower. I grew 1 plant last year with an LED grow light from the hardware store. It actually did okay considering. I finally am now retired and just bought a bug chunk of land in the woods. I decided I wanted to grow to self sustain for the wife and I.... Well that lasted about a second and has now turned into 50 plants. I bought the Solar system series with the two 1150s and the single 550 and two sets of each. I noticed a wonderful change in my plants but the more I read I began to understand the importance of colors. So I then ordered the controller which I've now had for 9 days. Since I removed a lot of the red light my plants are now growing 6 inches a day. Its unbelievable that that light could make that much difference. The controller is just the best as well. Makes life soooo much simpler. Needs a blue tooth option to kill it when I hear low flying planes and helicopters in the area!!! Lol... However I do have one problem and I don't know that this will get me any help either . But as I said earlier I just bought a place so in the midst of moving. I lost one of my daisy chain communication cables for the controller. Was hoping a regular phone cord would work but wasn't so lucky. Anyway enough wining. California Lights are the best on the market I dont care what anyone says. You wont make me believe anything otherwise. They will continue to get my business as I grow.
This is our first use of a light controller. So far so good.
I would say its not entirely intuitive, and honestly haven't figured it out in its entirety. I've heard the youtube video helps a ton on that, just haven't had the chance to dig into it too far.
I do like it, lights run much warmer than our others which has required some adjustment.
