    All right, so I have been running the Lightbars for a while just through the Profilux Light. My actual controller was the Apex Lite (no relation).

    I haven't had any issues with the Neptune, but doing my research before diving in to a full fledged controller led to pick the GHL and I'm taking advantage of the Black Friday sale and have ordered a system.

    I'm getting the Profilux 4 Mega Set and a Doser 2.1 to start (along with another Lightbar, Deep Actinic this time, and a couple of accessories.

    So once they arrive (in a while with international shipping and all) I'll have plenty of questions for @Ditto and @Lasse and everyone (including @Vinny@GHLUSA of course). But in the meantime I'm re-reading the threads.

    One thing I'm looking for that I can't seem to find is a post that one of you shared that layed out the sequence for updates out of the box? As in update this firmware first, them wifi then, then, then, etc...

    Can anyone point me to that?


    Cheers,
    Tony

    Welcome to the GHL club!! The support and community here is great!!

    When you download the GCC desktop software your going to see firmware needs to be updated :)

    I have done the P4 firmware first then the wireless and webpage upgrade.

    Now what I have noticed is that usually when the GCC mobile app is updated a new esp will be posted which is the webpage/firmware package :)

    Painless to do, except that you need to reinput your notification settings. They are aware of this issue and maybe it fixed in 1.20 release which came out a few days ago.

    And as for running the beta firmware or the release before firmware I have been running the beta versions since I have been using the devices and yet to encounter any issues :)

    Thanks

    Definitely looking forward to it. I have been able to fiddle around with GCC a bit with the GHL Light. It is the only way to connect to that. I don't mind it at all. If you're used to Windows programs then it feels familiar.

    I am looking forward to the app though.

    Cheers, Tony

    @Ditto @Marco@GHLUSA I remember a discussion about dosing tubes and connectors. @Ditto I see you have the zip ties on there.

    What should I be looking at for those?

    Cheers, Tony

    Great, thanks very much. I've ordered some of that tubing.

    I've also ordered some Rj45 to connect the Lightbars upstairs to the ProfiLux downstairs.

    All I need now is the actual equipment!

    Cheers, Tony

    With thanks to @Cristina@GHLUSA and @Marco@GHLUSA. (and thanks in advance to @Ditto and @Lasse for the innumerable questions I'll be asking).

    I'll do a proper post about setting it up, calibrating etc... once I'm done overin my build thread.

    Very happy with it so far.


    Cheers, Tony
