After shutting down my old grow room and moving, I am getting ready to setup my new grow room. I opened the NIWA Grow Hub to set it up in my propagation tent that I plan on using here in the near future.
I’m liking the ease of use and setup right out of the package. I like the fact that you can setup recipes for each individual outlet. The 1st attempt at connecting to the WIFI was not successful.
To fix the problem I unplugged the Grow Hub and plugged it in next to the router and it connected on the 2nd attempt.
In the propagation tent, I plan on using it for, the light, my Turbokloner, (when cloning), heating pad for seed germination, and humidifier.
I finally have all the indoor contractors finished working and finally after almost a month trying to get the Internet turned on, I can finally get going again.
Well hello stranger… Glad to see ya giving it the old college try. Looks like your leaning on the techn-o grow side of things. Gonna make things a little easier… Maybe keep the environment spot on for ya. That is something I can’t get right is my environment. One day when I’m airtight and locked in on the basics I’ll try a serious approach with the weather scenerio. I’m far from there tho… LoL
Sorry I’m not very good with tech stuff. What are the options for running a pump like ( number of events, time between events ect.) ?
I really don’t know yet. From playing with it last night I found that the programing is called a recipe and you can make several recipes for an outlet, or at least it looks like you can. I’ll play with it more and try to give you a better answer.
@treetrunks you can set multiple setting for watering to include days of the week from what I just looked at! Pretty neat stuff so far.
I just found another interesting feature in the app. If your in the stats portion of the app if you touch the cloud with the down arrow it will send you an email of the information in a cvs file!
If no one has seen @chrisj Niwa Hub Thread, here is a link for a discount code if you are interested in getting one.
Interested in seeing how this goes @nacho151 something i wanna look into getting
I’m liking it so far! I am making a list of questions to find answers for as I play around with it! Like how many cycles can you add to a recipe for each outlet? Does it stop working if the WIFI goes down? I figure the answers will be found out as soon as I use it for a while.
Well you can add 4 cycles per day for watering, you can set your fan to run for a specific number of minutes each hour. I’m testing a light schedule tonight to see what happens.
Last night I plugged in a small light and setup a light recipe from 8 PM to 11:59 AM. Still on which is a good thing.
It also answered the question if the Grow Hub will continue to work if the WIFI connection is disconnected. It will still work as long as the recipes for your outlet were activated. Here is a picture of the stats page from the app!
@hydrokidd007 your product is pretty impressive to me so far!
Nacho you know you can take screenshots right Put the joint out for a minute with your stoney ass…lol…
Just easier for my technologically impaired ass to use a different camera! I don’t have an email account set up on that phone to transfer the pictures to my desktop. For some reason every time I try to logon to the forum with a phone it gives me an error message that my username and password are invalid!
I’m liking the NIWA Grow Hub so far. I just set it up to run a humidifier! Working good so far!
Still Kinda spendy for my tastes…I won a Controller 69 but its $100 and has all the plug and play with variable converters for various lighting controllers, new modular integrated controllable outlets. I think these guys got themselves locked into a tech thats already been outpaced and devalued. C69 has that exact chart and the Pulse has CO2 monitoring and PPFD readings. These cats are gonna really need to up their game and dump the $ to stay viable. One word “Plastics”, no kidding its Modularity.
