SolarSystem® Controller

  • The SolarSystem controller works only with the California LightWorks SolarSystem 1100, 550, and 275. It can control an unlimited number of lights from a single controller. It allows automated programming for spectrum control, 24-hour timer, and day/week/month calendar. Now it is possible to program an entire grow cycle automatically – varying the spectrum, the length of the day, transitions from veg to bloom, final finishing modes, sunrise/sunset – all in a low cost easy to program digital controller.

    The SolarSystem Controller features programmable 0% to 99% spectrum control over three spectrum ranges – Blue, White and Red. You can use the controller in manual mode only to adjust the light spectrum or use the digital clock and calendar to run custom light recipes over a day, week, month or entire season. Programs can be saved for specific crops or strains. You can also use the view mode to work in natural white light and then switch back to high power reds and blues for accelerated growth.

    Take control of your grow operation!

So cool

I love this thing. I just set up my program and it does all the work for me. I have 2 Solar 1100 Systems connected to the controller and they both do the same spectrum and timing. Sunrise sunset is cool as well as view mode. No more second guessing.

works when it wants to

I bought my controller for my light about a year and a half ago and it worked great for one whole grow cycle then outta no were it would just stay on and the time would get froze up and I would have to reset it

Hi Jesse, I sent you an email to help you solve this issue. The firmware on your controller most likely needs to be updated which you can do yourself, or we can do that for you if you send your controller in.
Works great

I bought a controller about a year ago. It wasn't working right all the time but I contacted California Lightworks and they swapped it out for me with a controller with new firmware. This controller has been working great since then with no issues. Great customer service!


The option for sunrise and sunset is wonderful. The touchscreen is very hard to use. It just doesn’t work right. I hit the screen and it activates something next to it. Not sure if it’s just this one or all of them. To late to return. My plants are in the middle of growing. Other than that I like the light 550. I do love the idea of the controller. Just wished it was a bit better.

controller review

So far the controller I have received has worked great. I watched several youtube vids regarding programming entire grow cycle into controller before receiving it so it was a breeze to program. So far so good. No problems at all to speak of. Happy with my purchase of this controller and both 550 lights
