I did some research on the Photone app. They didn't have an Android version so I bought a PAR meter. Lol.

 

Anyway, I heard you can't use a screen protector on your phone. It changes the readings.

@artmann yes, it is for iOS only. You can use a screen protector but if you want it to be exact, you need to recalibrate.☀️

@Stootie yeha the paper difusor thing threw me off a bitt to when watching the app/meter test vid, but i figure whit Shane’s test it was worth trying, the app and papper shet was a hell of a lot cheaper than anny PAR meter i could find online annyway Smile

@im_sparky i see the medical canabis part of the app has some sort of subscription in order to acess it, a bit on the pricy side for an app sub, iyo is it worth the ekstra monney?

Hmmmm…. Maybe I misunderstood, but I thought you had subscription in order to select the LED light source because you mentioned you were using the lumatek zeus 600w.  In my app, I had to pay the fee to select the LED light source. If you don’t it is useless if you are using LED lights.  As for whether it is worth it, IMO, the fee is tiny compared to the amount of bud you will grow by optimizing in your light. Many people burn their plants by having lights to high, or don’t get optimal growth by having the lights too low.  This removes much of the guess work.  I think there is more detailed info on Percys when it comes to grow guides, but the Photone info is helpful for someone learning how to grow indoors when it comes to setting lights.

@im_sparky yes, i payed a smal one time fee to Get the led meter on the app, but the medical thing is tied to the monthly sub.

So the medical canabis part of the app is just genneral growing info?

@stoned-ape I paid $29 for the year, and got access to everything. That is about $2.50/month, which I think is a good value, but like I said, I am kind of a lighting geek. As for access to the guides, they are helpful to a new grower, but not full of info, but helpful when it comes to lighting. I’m curious, how much did you pay for your one-time fee?

Make sure you’re using 22 lb paper for the diffuser (that creates a similar opacity to what’s its calibrated with). Not as exact as a high $$ par meter, but way better than a guess or inflated PAR map.

@stoned-ape Glad to help. The PAR charts that come with lights can be a good guide to get you in the neighborhood, but trouble is a lot of people don’t look at those charts, and lights can vary over the course of their life.  Bon Chance!  Post some pics of your harvest when you can!
