What is the Telos Pro Mesh Driver Upgrade Kit?
The Grow Northern (GN) Telos Pro Mesh Driver Upgrade Kit is available to update existing Telos 6 and Telos 10 LED grow lights. The upgrade kits feature a completely new waterproof LED driver and fitting kit. The upgrade adds secure, Bluetooth mesh wireless dimming control and network connectivity to your existing Telos 10 and Telos 6 LED grow lights.
Garden tip: The new driver is also available on the new Complete Telos 6 Mesh or Telos 10 Mesh LED grow lights.
Telos Driver Upgrade Kit
The Mesh driver upgrade kits are available for anyone with an existing Telos 6 (200W) or Telos 10 (320W). The updated mesh driver kits update the LED drivers with improved electrics and electronics with a secure, Bluetooth mesh network for wireless dimming and network connectivity. Bluetooth mesh network connectivity is a secure. Mesh-integrated networks are capable of connecting thousands of independent lights.
Each mesh driver has a range of around 50-metres and its own independent network ID.
Secure Invisible Mesh Network
Each light stores the network ID of each connected light and acts as a repeater, sending data to other mesh drivers within range. The mesh drivers can be grouped so you can independently control groups of lights in different rooms. Read more about mesh networks here.
Updated Driver Electronics and Electrics
The drivers come complete with IP66 rated, waterproof connectors, updated electronics and electrical controls with Wireless, secure Bluetooth Mesh technology.
Everything you Need to Fit The Kit
Each Telos Pro Mesh Driver Upgrade Kit comes complete with everything you need to swap it out. This includes a 4mm hex screwdriver and clear instructions.
If you want to upgrade your Telos 10, you'll want the 320W mesh driver. If you want to upgrade your Telos 6, you'll want the 200W mesh driver.
The Telos mesh is a secure, precise, wireless control solution. It enables you to control your lights from your mobile device, outside the grow room.
How Does The Telos Mesh Work?
The Telos Mesh system works by using the latest Bluetooth Mesh standard for communications. Telos mesh is an “offline” and “decentralised” network, meaning it doesn’t require a router or an internet connection. Each light within the network has a latest generation microprocessor and functions like a small computer with its own independent operating system. This allows connected lights to communicate together without a Wi-Fi connection.
When you create a new network from your phone or smart device, this creates new network encryption keys and addresses. Each light that you add to a network, stores all the addresses and network settings. This means that once you’ve set the network up, you don’t need to stay in range for schedules and dimming levels to continue to work. Each light has a range of around 50-metres and can talk to any other lights on that network within that range. Every light you add increases the strength and range of the network as it works on a repeater basis, passing on and relaying messages between the lights.
Is the Mesh Network Secure?
When Telos were designing the Telos Pro Mesh, privacy and security were at the core of the design. They wanted to ensure that all commands are sent with end-to-end encryption. Firstly, they put you in control, with the Bluetooth functionality. Bluetooth is only activated by you using the touchpad.
When Bluetooth is activated, you have around 30 seconds to connect the light to the network. When connected, the system stops broadcasting (advertising). Broadcasting is important for most Bluetooth devices, like headphones. Broadcasting is what allows the unit to find and connect to devices. Once added to a network, there’s no need to disconnect and reconnect again later, the device switches permanently from “advertising” to “listening mode”. This is where it is in a network and is constantly listening (scanning) for encrypted messages sent from the app. Being in listening mode means that you can’t find devices using Bluetooth sniffers or Bluetooth listening devices. Only connected devices can talk to an encrypted network, using the network's encryption key.
If the network login or smart device that created the network is lost, you'll need to reset each light on the network using the touchpad. Although this could be a long process, it guarantees the privacy and security of the network.
Garden tip: There is an additional option for backing encryption keys and mesh setting to the cloud. This is useful for larger projects when multiple devices need access to the mesh controls.
Future Proof and Fully Upgradeable
Telos don’t release new products every week. Instead, they think about what the future of horticulture is going to look like and try to develop unique solutions and technologies that are likely to make the biggest impact. Telos Pro Mesh is the result of two years of hard work by the Telos R&D team. Using Telos Mesh in your grow room means you'll get great results and can buy in the knowledge that you're buying some of the newest, and future-proofed tech' on the market.
Telos like to look after their customer base. This is apparent with the Telos Pro Mesh. Now you can buy the new Telos Mesh Pro LED as a complete unit or keep your old LED and chassis. The Telos upgrade kit has everything you'll need to upgrade your existing Telos 6 or Telos 10 LED to a wireless Bluetooth mesh controllable LED. It's all within your grasp with this driver module, available as a spare/upgradeable part on its own.
What are the Benefits of Telos Mesh?
Telos mesh drivers are the world’s first Bluetooth-integrated waterproof drivers for horticulture. When paired with the Telos Mesh software, they provide revolutionary new functionality for you as a grower.
Traditionally, controllers use physical cables to daisy chain a limited number of units together. Telos mesh employs a completely wireless solution to help you reduce the set-up time and the amount of clutter within the grow area. Without the need to use control cables means you have less to do to control your grow room lighting network.
The ability to purchase the Mesh driver separately, as a spare, means you can upgrade your existing Telos 6 or Telos 10 LED grow lights. This allows you to keep your Telos LEDs right up-to-date with the latest in grow room technology.
Mesh App - Fine Lighting Control at your Fingertips
With Precise PPF™ specifying the exact PPF output of your Telos LED is as simple as sliding your finger across your mobile device's screen. The mobile app allows you to set the exact PPF without being limited to increments.
To achieve the requested PPF level, the system takes into account the changes in LED efficiency at the required wattage and the lifetime degradation of the LED performance to calculate the exact power output needed. Compared with a 0-10v dimming system, this is a much more accurate and repeatable solution for growers looking for repeatability and performance.
The app also displays the active power consumption and efficiency at different output settings.
App Functionality and Benefits
The app allows for simple light grouping, allowing you to have multiple groups within the same mesh network. It allows you to create Schedules, which allows you to turn the lights off and on throughout the day, with separate schedules that can be applied to different groups of lights within the same network.
Separate PPF Settings for Different Groups
You can also apply separate PPF settings to different groups of lights. These combined functions are really useful for advanced growers who will be able to control multiple tents with plants at different stages of the lifecycle using the same smart device.
Sunrise and Sunset Mode
The app brings you an integrated sunrise and sunset mode which helps the plants to wake up and acclimatise slowly when the light period starts. When it’s time for the lights to switch off again the simulated sunset helps to smooth out temperature changes within the grow area, making it easier to maintain the correct environment for your plants.
Garden tip: During the colder months, large temperature swings can result in condensation from warm air meeting the cold outer wall on grow tents. This is can lead to mould and mildew problems, inside grow rooms. To help avoid this problem, it is a good idea to set a tube heater to come on around 30 minutes before lights out to help avoid condensation and mould/mildew problems.
The Mesh system also includes an offline mode so that you can control your Telos LED without connecting to the app. Pressing the integrated touch sensor on the side of the driver allows you to cycle through the pre-set PPF output levels, suitable for propagation, veg and flower.
