    Spec and timing..
    .
    Summer corner: (70F-80F range)
    -2x Amare se500(daylight w/UVB) @ 515Watts ea.
    -2x Red only G8LED @ 90Watts ea. (sunrise/sunset)
    .
    Winter corner: (50F-60F temperature with window cracked open)
    -Top floor: 5x T5HO @ 200Watts total
    -Middle floor: 2x Optic LED 2, 1x T5HO UVB, 2x red/blue strip (700Watts total)
    -Bottom floor: 3x red/blue LED strip, 2x T5HO, 1x T5HO UVB (360Watts total)
    .
    .
    Timing:
    Summer corner: The red sunrise/sunset will turn on 6am to 9am, then 4pm to 7pm. The daylight will turn on 9am to 5pm.
    .
    Winter corner:
    top floor: 3x 3000Kelvin will turn on first,same as summer corner.
    Middle floor: 2x red/blue first, same as summer corner.
    Bottom floor: 3x red/blue first, same as summer corner.
    The rest will turn on 9am to 5pm for daylight.

    Comparing PAR light output both inside and outside sun..
    11:15am ET = 1283 umols (Outside)
    1529 umols at 18” distance (Grow light)

    @Rey you really know your indoor plant lighting; I'm going to have to come to you for advice since I've only started to learn about PAR and the different wavelengths. This reminds me, and I have it someplace on a piece of paper on this desk, but I have to take a closer look at that PAR meter you recommended.

    yes, it is very important to know the range of the quantum meter on which it measures the PAR. I think mine is 400-700nm, anything below that is UV and above is infrared which is not added to the PAR measurement.
