As a grower, your grow room controller will be one of the most important pieces of equipment you own. The environment in your grow room is one of the most important aspects of your garden, along with your grow lights. Creating an ideal environment is crucial for high-yields and high-quality, but maintaining this environment indoors can be difficult and time-consuming.
What is a grow room controller?
A grow room environmental controller allows a grower to automate their grow. Using a combination of these controllers, or one multi-function controller, allows growers more time away from the grow room! Human error is a common cause of most problems in the grow room, and environment controllers cut down on this drastically.
Utilizing an environment controller allows growers to monitor different aspects of the grow room essential to plant health, such as heat, moisture and humidity, fan speed, CO2, and grow lights. These devices allow you to ensure optimal growing conditions without actually monitoring them in person! Simply set the timers and controllers to the ideal range and hours, and let them do the work, granting you more freedom outside the garden!
What types of grow room controllers are there?
For serious indoor growers, we recommend a multi-function grow room controller, which monitors temperature, CO2, humidity, and even lights, all in one!
If you only need to automate a certain component in your grow room, such as a temp and humidity controllers, rest assured we have it here!
- Temperature Controllers- These controllers monitor temperature in your grow room, through either fans, air conditioners and heaters, or both!
- Humidity Controllers- Humidity is an important aspect of your grow room, and these controllers maintain optimal humidity levels by powering on and off humidifiers and dehumidifiers
- Fan Speed Controllers- Odds are, you don't need your fans blowing at the same level at night as you do during the day. These controllers allow you to set various fan speeds depending on the time!
Some of these controllers have photocell, a feature that allows them to set different schedules in accordance with your grow lights. For example, when your grow lights turn off, your CO2 devices and fans will also turn off.
