First light build

You will probably want to order up some wagons connectors too. These will make the parallel wiring much easier.

i want to add one of these as well so those will come in handy im sure

““A” version drivers with built-in dimmers are shipped by default. “B” version drivers are shipped with AC and DC cabling but without external dimmer connections unless ordered separately.”

not clear on what this means… will i have everything I need with default A? sorry if that is a dumb question - just want to make sure i got everything right before i order

Yeah if you got the A version you are good, it can be adjusted with a screwdriver. The B has an extra set of wires for the dimmer (sold seperately).

Or you could add a sonoff pow and you can view the usage in real time on your phone. @Jellypowered suggested one and it’s on its way to me :+1:

This is how I do. Or don’t do depending on how you look at it. Lol

I’ll invest in a full sonoff setup in the new year when my pocket is a bit healthier. I know they are not expensive but at the moment every bit of cash is being saved for vet bills. When the time comes I’ll be plugging you for a list of all the bits I’d need for my setup. :+1:

Sounds like B is the way to go then?

oh man that does look nice @Colanoscopy

No, for you A would be the way to go. Using a B driver requires you to purchase and install some kind of controller. It could be as simple as a potentiometer, or as complex as a custum Arduino controller.

A B driver will need a 100k ohm resistance potentiometer to act as an external dimmer. You need a Philips driver for an A

You’ve done more than enough to help me out mate. I’m over the moon with the light you built me and it’s performance. I’m just glad I can give something back for all your help

Ok that’s what i was thinking- that maybe the extra wires came with a larger dial or controller of some kind (also saw a few posts where people were buying the B model so figured there was something to it)

will go with A -

im going to be growing some nice basil, lmao
being forced to take a break from smoking (first time in 15+ years) has given me some intense motivation
