Hey @Todd.grobo The unit does not get hot, the water once did, but that’s been fixed with a chiller. Overheating is not an issue inside my home. The temps outside are a beautiful low 80’s. AC runs no matter what.
After checking my gopros log of timelapse photos the lights never appear to come on, but the battery also dies around 7am just a lot of darkness so just my luck.
it’s also only 74 degrees in my home, no power outages of any type. No flashing clocks in my place. My home router never shows an interrupted of data flow (home camera system recorded all day) and shows the grobo connected (never lost connection) without interruption. I assure you this is not a network issue on my end.
Inside the grobo temps have never risen above 76.6 degrees verified by my meters which I pull each day to validate the data on my Pc (software was included to better check peak hours). No hot conditions what so ever. Also a fan in the room pushing air and the grobo is 12 inches from the wall.
Holding a meter against the grobo where the heat comes out of the top section temps is sitting around 78/79 degrees. There is really good air flow in this room especially with the fan.
I also noticed the back button is not functioning properly and the inside light for checking out the plant without opening stayed on for a minute instead of a super fast 10 seconds before kicking back over to the grow light.
I haven’t gotten a reply from grobo yet, so I went ahead and power cycled the unit and everything connected normally and lights are on, air stone working, normal finctionality including the pic light lasting like 10 seconds.
I can rule heat as out as well and I believe powercycling the device has resolved the locking issue and erratic behavior, but I am concerned that this inside light issue ties into the outside LED flashing light on the front which hasn’t worked since day 3. I was okay losing the outside LED and considered taping it so I didn’t see the flash, but I still would like this investigated as to the cause or what needs be fixed. I’d hate to lose this plant because of a faulty part
Appreciate the reply
