Grow Light Timers & Controllers

Like almost everything else around us, automation should be a priority for growers too. Modern grow light timers and controllers allow growers to achieve this objective. You can eliminate the probability of human error by using this modern tech to control grow lights and reduce your burden significantly.  

How are grow light timers and HID grow lights different? 

A typical grow light timer works well for 1 or 2 lights with low wattage and amps. These lights can both be mechanical and digital and offer great ease of use. The timer allows you to automate lights and light movers, fans, pumps, etc. The timers allow for better scheduling of light exposure to plants preventing plants from extra stress caused by sporadic light periods and light leaks. 

On the other hand, HID grow light controllers are designed to control high-wattage lights simultaneously. The number of lights that it can handle can be more than four. As these lights can work in environments, they are the right choice for large or commercial indoor greenhouses. Growers can use these controllers to prevent light from reaching harmful levels by monitoring the temperature and dimming the lights if need be. 

What is a grow light flip box? 

You can run two different sets of lights with just a single set of ballasts using a grow light flip box. The flip box allows alternating light cycles to achieve this functionality. For instance, if you are a grower with 16 sets of lights, you will only need eight ballasts to control them. So, suppose you are a commercial grower looking to double production, maximize the use of power available, and save on high equipment costs. In that case, these flip boxes are a must. 

How to select the best timer or controller for grow lights? 

Your budget and your need for automation levels will determine which timer or controller is best for you. 

We have timers and controllers with a feature called photocell; this feature allows complete automation in the grow room. The photocell automatically turns off CO2 generators and exhaust fans when the lights are turned off. They are not needed when the plants are asleep. Similarly, it automatically reactivates all necessary equipment as soon as the lights are turned on. 

One thing that is also very important is the number of outlets in your grow room and the voltage that they need. If you are a hobby grower, your outlet requirement will probably be limited to 1 or 2 outlets, and a standard 120-volt supply would be sufficient for you. On the other hand, commercial growers can require as many as 20 outlets with a higher supply voltage, such as 240 volts. 

You must also consider if you want to have the timer or controller hardwired into your home’s or facility’s electrical system. Some of the products that we offer do not have standard 120 or 240-volt plugs, for which you need to consult a professional electrician.
