The New Covert Advanced Lighting Controller Gives You Control of Your Grow Lights With On/Off Timing, Sunrise/Sunset Modes, High Temperature Shutoff, Auto Dimming & More!
Controlling your grow room lighting has never been easier! The Covert Advanced Master Controller utilizes a 2-channel system, allowing you to control two different grow rooms & controlling up to 160 total fixtures (80 per room). Both channels provide high-temperature shutdown and auto-dimming based on which settings you enter.
This controller also features sunrise & sunset modes that slowly turn on the lights and slowly turn off the lights from increments of 10-60 minutes. This helps wake the plant up gently and lowers stress. Use the LCD touchscreen to navigate, view, and modify the current settings for each channel easily.

Covert Advanced Master Controller Features
One of the smartest investments you can make as a grower is in automation, to take extra responsibilities off your plate. There are already tons of factors that need to be thought about on a regular basis to make sure your grow cycle is optimized and running smoothly.
So, a master controller with auto-dimming & high-temperature safety features, on/off timing, and sunrise/sunset modes is a grower's best friend. Take a look below at some of the features that set our master controller apart from the competition.
Auto-Dimming, High Temp Shut-Off and Power Boost Modes
Once you have connected your lights to the controller and set the on/off timer, you can easily set the max temperatures for the controller to automatically dim or turn off the LEDs in the event the grow area experiences excessive heat that could harm your plants, such as HVAC failures.
Sunrise & Sunset Modes
Sunrise/Sunset settings allow you to slowly dim on and off your lights, mimicking the natural rising and setting of the sun. This might seem like a minor feature, but in reality, this feature plays an important role in reducing plant stress. What if you were woken up abruptly every morning with a bright light shining in your face?
LCD Touch Screen
The large 8.5" LCD touchcreen makes it as easy as possible to manage all settings quickly. Navigate, view, and modify settings in one or both rooms faster than ever.
Easy Installation & Setup
Installing the Master Controller is very simple. All you need to do is plug the power cable into the wall outlet, connect the RJ cables from the controller to each Covert LED, and connect the temperature sensors. From there all you have to do is set your wattage, on/off times, high temp shutoff, and dimming points, and you are ready to start growing!
Connecting The Covert Controller To Your Grow Lights
Connecting the Covert Advanced Master Controller to grow lights is as easy as plugging in the RJ14 network cables. Simply connect one end of the RJ14 cord to the touchscreen port for room/group 1 (shown as "C" on the controller connection diagram below), then connect the other end of the RJ14 cord to the grow light communication port. Each additional grow light to be controlled on the same group should be "piggybacked" from the first light to the second. Repeat until all fixtures are connected together. Up to 80 fixtures can be connected per room/group.
Once the lighting fixtures are connected to the controller, you just need to turn the rotary knob to "EXT" (external control) and plug in the power cord to control the grow lights with the Covert Master Controller.

I really like this controller. everything connects with telephone cables and the setting s are easy to navigate.
- Easiest master controller to use
By far much much easier to use than the previous covert controller I had from a couple of years ago, and must easier than the Gavita controllers too. The large touchscreen and super easy to understand layout is absolutely amazing. Nothing bad to say!
Works flawlessly with the new convert pro led I bought last week!
