All growers know how important the environment of the grow room is, but monitoring it can be a hassle. Without controllers and timers, growers need to constantly stop by the grow room to turn on and off equipment, such as grow lights, fans, and CO2 devices.
How do you control climate in a grow room?
There are a few important aspects of a growing environment, being temperature, humidity, ventilation, and CO2 levels. Serious growers will have devices to keep each of these aspects within the ideal range, such as grow lights, air conditioners, dehumidifiers, fans, and CO2 devices.
Most growers opt for timers and controllers for these devices, because otherwise they would need to constantly be in the grow room monitoring them. There are temperature controllers, humidity controllers, fan speed controllers, grow light timers, and CO2 controllers.
Having all these timers and controllers in a small growing space can get messy and disorganized, so many growers will use a multi-function grow room controller.
What is a multi-function grow room controller?
A multi-function grow room controller makes monitoring the atmosphere in your grow room easy. Instead of having multiple timers and controllers turning on/off devices, the multi-function controller will monitor all your devices.
You can connect your fans, air conditioner, humidity devices, CO2 burners, and even lights!
What is the best grow room controller?
Many of these controllers contain photocell, which will schedule your grow room devices in accordance with your grow lights. For example, during the lights off period, CO2 burners and fans will also shut off.
When trying to decide which controller is best for you, consider the extent to which you want to automate your grow room. Some multi-function grow room controllers can control every aspect of your grow room, whereas some will just monitor the most basic components: temperature, CO2, and humidity.
