      Post edited: I got my plants mixed up. Both of the starting quads are still to show sex. The last 2 to do so.
      I should label stuff really. Updates to follow.

          We're only just starting yet mars
          OK, to make up for the last post, where I got the plants mixed up, I tried to get some shots showing one of the quads. But its hard to photo quadness, its too leafy until it starts to stretch, but I did my best.

                Thanks Chevy .I do have a fungus gnat problem from this compost though. My own fault for being impatient and using it before cleaning it. So there's a drought coming to this grow in the next few days. Let's see how they cope with that.

                    Yeah they are happy at the moment, I'm just wondering whether or not to cut their heads off.

                      I like their use of common cables for the daisy chain. In wiring terms it's putting the controls in parallel. Hence any one can do the dimming. I wonder if they will add a thermostat to their accessory range. I have one up top to dim the lights if things get too hot. It's just switching in another resistor. It's nothing difficult but handy in the summer months if your extraction rate is fixed. Pics are in my album if you wanted something similar

                        I'm very surprised there isn't a thermostat to be honest. I would think of that as an essential safety feature. In the heat of the summer, my plan is to only use the 1000's and turn them down. I'll time things so I can do a veg period in august. I wish I could do electrical stuff myself, but I'm so scared of electricity and fire that I just won't risk doing anything. What I'd like is some sort of sensor connected to a plug with a plug socket in the back. That way I could plug the light into the back of the sensor plug, which would switch off the current to the lights if things got too hot. I'm not so worried about the plants, but without a thermostat cut out, I am, probably unnecessarily, scared of anything electrical catching fire. Of course the easy solution would be a fan to cool things down I suppose. I just hate white noise. I'm an awkward sod. I'll take a look at your creation in a minute, let me just upload a couple of boy pics.

                            Perhaps a THERMOSTAT PLUG would suit you better.
                            https://www.ebay.com/itm/thermogaurd...-/170809599898
                            It allows power through when the area is cooler than it's set for, and switches the power off when it's warmer than set for. It's for heaters really, but it's just the same job. Put a portion of your lighting load through it and that might be all you want. I'm sure with a few extension leads you can get it in the top of your grow area somewhere. They cost from about a tenner. I wouldn't connect hid's as the constant on/off cycling wouldn't be good for them. LED's though... not a problem.

                            It's possible I didn't get past the drawing stage with my uploads. I know it's in a thread somewhere. My first trial I actually got it backwards, but it's working now for about the same £10. Perhaps not worth the effort unless linking lots and lots of lights, but I do like messing around

                            Edit: I had a look.. I had drawn it wrong anyway. corrected

                              Oh that's cool, they exist, what's the difference between the two wattages talked about though? One says over 3kw and the other says 460w. Both on same product. Its a pity the top temp is 85 f. But I suppose that would do the trick really. I can put the 300w tsl2000 on that plug and have the two ts1000's set to 50%. That will keep them in cool light while the big source goes on and off. But would it be safe to have it going on and off so often? I could sit with it for a few days I guess, with a bucket of water. Yeah that solves my concerns for the hotter weather, thanks f-e. I've book marked that product for the next eBay order.
                              Your design looks a bit more complicated than plugging something in though. How are you actually connecting that to the lights?

                                The link was just the general idea. This one has the temp sensor on a wire and can go up past boiling point. It's even cheaper, though needs a different plug or an adaptor
                                https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Electroni...IAAOSwEtRdLFzb

                                Many plug in switching things such as timers are happy with big heaters, yet struggle with other loads. It's why we often use contactors to take the strain. It's hard for me to make an actual recommendation though the first one should be alright at about 500w. Though it also says 9A which is a lot more than 500w. China.

                                The £25 inkbird does 2200w but is rated heating and cooling. Cooling is usually a difficult load so it should have a reasonable capacity. You can set the switch on and off points some distance apart. So you could switch off at like 36c and back on at 32c for example.

                                Or you could get a £10 one and use a contactor with it. Just like you would with a cheap timer. IIRC contactors are quite cheap these days.
