    If you're a new GHL ProfiLux 4 owner or need a guide to show you how functions are setup, we have just the thing for you!

    In our ProfiLux 4 Resource Guide, we show you how to setup your ProfiLux from the moment you take it out of the box. We've also included an easy to follow TO-DO list which shows new owners the steps to take as they get their controller up and running for the first time.

    In this resource guide, you will find instructions for:
    • First time P4 setup
    • Wi-Fi setup
    • myGHL setup
    • Basic temperature control
    • Auto Top Off control
    • Auto Water Change control
    • Leakage detection
    • 1-10v pump setup
    • Dosing pump schedule setup
    • And so much more
    Resource guide also includes:
    • Direct links to our HOW-TO videos
    • Direct links to our GHL Downloads page
    • Shortcuts for accessing functions right from the P4 touch keys
    • Programmable logic examples!

    Additionally, this guide will explain the ins and out of GHL Control Center and how to navigate it.

    Last but not least, we show you how to connect to the ProfiLux 4 through our GHL Connect app without even using the PC software!

    Right out of the box, you will be able to get connect to the P4 when you use the GHL CONNECT app for android and iOS devices.

    Make sure you have a valid DNS Server set.

    You need to input valid DNS settings. 0.0.0.0 is invalid. Feel free to enter 8.8.8.8, or 1.1.1.1, or your router IP should work as well; 192.168.1.1

    I have my Profilux set up from last weekend. I plan to set up my KH Director this weekend.

    Is there a compatible Calcium Reactor that can be integrated with my Profilux and KHD so that the Profilux controls the Calc Reactor? If so, which system is best integrated?

    What are you guys using with your GHL system and how is it working?

    After I change the DNS to 8.8.8.8, the problem solved. Thank you so much.

    There is nothing cobtroller brand/GHL specific about a clacium reactor.
    You're going to be controlling your CO2 solenoid most likely, and that will plug into your controllable power socket.

    Now that my Profilux is set up, can I use the app or the online platform to do updates or do I still need to keep a windows computer?

    P4 Update should be done using GCC via a USB connection.

    Wi-Fi module,web server, web interface updates can be performed over your network with any web browser on your PC, Mac, or smartphone. These steps are covered in the resource guide.
