Okay this is a compound post…
I decided to start my light cycle two days ago with the lights going off at 10am and back on at 5pm for veg thinking during flower the 10am to 10pm should keep the plants warm while asleep and cooler while awake (as I live in AZ its hot out). They were seedlings reciving 24 hours of light on 30% brightness and relatively close to the seedlings, I have since raised the light to 55% brightness and 3 feet above…
Recently I noticed I was running a heater outside of the tent thru a open vent and this can let light in during the day while they are suppose to be asleep… I do NOT want a herm reaction to this light… I was wondering if you think itll effect it to go back to 24 hour lighting for another week and reset the light schedule to night time for sleep.
Its been making it very difficult to adjust temperatures during the day while the lights off as light comes in thru the garage.
This leads to thisss question… Do any of you have experience with the Inkbird Digital Temperature 2 stage outlet?
My question is this: Does it turn off the heater when it reaches the maximum heat level and does it turn the AC on to cool down? And Vice versa does it turn the ac on to cool down and turn the heater off ? Im confused thinking it only makes an alarm noise for you to be alerted that the temperature went above or below the desired temperature.
Sort of a lot of information for two simple questions. I may go with blacking out the garage windows for light leak but am still lost on the temperature control whether or not it controls it or just alerts you to control it.
Thanks for your time/imput!
