The SolarSystem controller works only with the California LightWorks SolarSystem 1100, 550, and 275. It can control an unlimited number of lights from a single controller. It allows automated programming for spectrum control, 24-hour timer, and day/week/month calendar. Now it is possible to program an entire grow cycle automatically – varying the spectrum, the length of the day, transitions from veg to bloom, final finishing modes, sunrise/sunset – all in a low cost easy to program digital controller.

The SolarSystem Controller features programmable 0% to 99% spectrum control over three spectrum ranges – Blue, White and Red. You can use the controller in manual mode only to adjust the light spectrum or use the digital clock and calendar to run custom light recipes over a day, week, month or entire season. Programs can be saved for specific crops or strains. You can also use the view mode to work in natural white light and then switch back to high power reds and blues for accelerated growth.

Straight forward easy to set up

Going to connect to the solar system 275. Pretty straight forward to set up. Looking forward to using with some photoperiod seeds when delivered.

SolarSystem 550 + ctrl

Honestly I was little concerned about this portion of the collective of parts. I am burnt out on funky, convoluted menus... think Apple TV, etc. I really like the simplicity of using the SX500, plug and play... set-up and getting around the controller was (unexpectedly) straight forward, very glad I bought it. At this point, I am not sure I could easily explain how to program... but feel fluid in doing so, navigating it makes sense, learning by feel... more than by operational manual. First impression are great.

**The SS550 and controller were packed so well, came a day before the listed delivery, was an easy selection, purchase, delivery and set-up were so easy. KUDOS CLW!!!

The unit arrived as promised
The instructions need to be a bit more clear on how to get from program 1-2-3-4-etc

solar System controller

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.

Just what I needed!

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!!

Cody Selina
This controller is a must have for use together with California Lightworks Solar System LED lights

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.

Controller Review

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!!
