Roll one up and thank you in advance for your help on such a lengthy post. I was recently gifted a homebox 120l 4×8 tent (https://www.hawthornegc.com/shop/product/growlab#) and an 8 inch ac infinity fan. (https://www.acinfinity.com/hvac-home-ventilation/inline-duct-fan-systems/cloudline-t8-quiet-inline-duct-fan-system-with-temperature-and-humidity-controller-8-inch/)
I am planning out the ultimate automated system that I can control all aspects of the environment from my phone. I will be creating a drip system with the aqua x and a little giant pump. The Median will be coco perlite mix. I plan to use house and garden aqua flakes base and advanced nutrients products mainly. The system will be drain to waste using a pump w/float valve so no water stays inside the tent. Passive intake, exhaust fan with carbon filter inside the tent. Plants Will be scroged twice during flowering. I think I will be getting the following items. 3×6 tray lifted 6″ off the ground connected to poly tubing for drain to waste.
AC- LG Portable AC (https://www.lg.com/us/air-conditioners/lg-LP1419IVSM-portable-air-conditioner)
Dehum – I already own this dehum I may upgrade in the future (https://www.amazon.com/hOmeLabs-Energy-Dehumidifier-Medium-Basements/dp/B073V9MG3Y)
Humidifier- Standalone Humidifier I was going to opt for the horticat u80 (http://horticat.com/product/u80/) so I don’t have to refill with water but I have been told they break a lot if you do not have an RO system and the grow shop in my area offers lifetime warranty on the following standalone humidifier.
Lights- 2 HGL Scorpion RSpec (https://horticulturelightinggroup.com/products/hlg-scorpion-rspec)
Side note – would this be overkill? These lights do dim by themselves and with Trolmaster however, is there a way I can calculate the perfect amount of power these lights should be running at? This tent will be for flowering only. I am very interested in the Trolmaster hydro x system, but also very confused. If I purchased the trolmaster would I be able to control all of the equipment above through it so that the environment would be automated? If so do I need all of the other items Trolmaster sells other than the plug looking device stations such as Humidistat, Ac remote station, thermostat station.
Would these stations even work with the equipment I have selected above? If anyone is a Master of Trolmaster please let me know what I should be buying. Please let me know your thoughts and if I should make any changes in order to optimize the system. I would love to make this as clean and automatic as possible. Thank you again for taking the time out of your day to help me out. Peace and Love
