discussion on Indoor environmental controllers?

laincJanuary 21, 2008


i am pondering designing (as a hobby) some simple environmental controllers for use by indoor growers. but i am new to growing indoors, and have no experience using other similar commercial devices

so basically i am asking what you would like to see in an simple indoor env. controller. or what useful features you have seen in open or closed loop controllers you have used that I might want to include

some ideas are:

1) a cycle timer, that would switch an AC outlet based on a predefined 'On' and cycle time

2) a day/night thermostat for regulating temps (soil or air) day and night (duh).

let me know what you think and want, gimme some some ideas.

Thanks Folks,
