    Yes
    Conclusion/Final Thoughts:
    The pulse has been a life saver for my grow. Previous to the pulse I had to manually go and check my grow repeatedly through the day. With sometimes this being impossible or through the night while slept my grow would often drift one way or the other with out my knowledge.

    This is now a problem of the past. I can now make quick adjustment when needed to avoid what could be problems later. The Pulse has added a stability to my grow room that was previously just not there. I rated the Pulse 4.75 out of 5. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 out of 5 is because the hanging issue.

    I would also like to add that customer service is great with this company. Early on in testing I noticed my Pulse had suddenly off readings. Customer service worked directly with me to try and find the cause and solution. I didn't have to wait more then 24hrs for a response. They were patient and pleasant to deal with and solved my issue quickly.

    Hey Clix. I can't reply to your reply.

    Did you find the charts/graphs to be useful? Did you look at data daily, weekly etc on the chart just to look at the plot? Or was that not even necessary?

      Hey no probs man I would look daily at trends over the night time aka did my temps dip to low or get to high kinda deal. This was useful for me because I shut my notifications off at night as I didn't want to be disturbed while I slept. This was my main use of the graphs themselves. Note: even with notifications turned off when you log in you will still get them on the pulse app itself it will tell you the time your incident happened and such. An example of how I used this info after lights off to just before lights on my temps dropped 15 degrees. I could see when the fastest drop in temps were and compensate with having my air con set to go off during those times and back on when it started to warm. As far as the first screen you see when you log into the pulse witch is the second picture down from the top on the first page of my review. I would look at this allot lol Almost obsessively.

      Hey, I can reply to my reply as a way to reply to your reply. Replies out the ass man! I would like to have a tool like that actually. I could get obsessed with it for sure.

      Do you know about the wifi power bars? I have one and each 3 prong outlet can be controlled remote by phone. You can create labels for each outlet like HPS, fan, dehumid, pump etc. And you can remotely turn the devices off or on from your phone. Or can you also setup timers for each outlet where you schedule on and off times (mutliple times per day too) for a device thru the day. Cheap too. I could see the wifi powerbar and a Pulse being two tools used together.

      Lmao awesome. No I didn't actually that's amazing and I want one lol. I've been using timers but a wifi power bar sounds way more convenient. I'm going to check that out. Thanks for the tip man :D

    So is this thing really worth the money? That's what i want to know. I measure my own temps and RH and keep it in the VPD sweet spot during veg. Pretty low tech but I do have a wifi camera in my tent that points at the hygrometer so I can real time monitory the temp and RH from anywhere at any time. But I don't get any alarms or graphs like the Pulse can do. But I can't see the value in the Pulse for a personal grow like mine.

    BTW, I checked out your link but the thread is 43 pages long.

    AFN reviewers should do their own threads instead of everyone being in one thread so when reviews get posted later it links to just that persons thread. I don't want to have to read 43 pages of a massive thread just to see what you thought of the Pulse. Just a constructive bit of feedback for whoever sets up review on the vendor boards. I see this is being done with autopots communal testing now. That thread is going to be a big pig when its done. Way to big to be useful for people after its all over and they are doing searches on threads.

      For me it is but I also don't have the set up you have. I had nothing to monitor except going in the room itself. If you find the extra info to be worth it. Then yes. If you're happy with your current set up then no. Side bar that was pretty clever with the camera I wouldn't have thought of that. I agree with you on the way the tests layout has been done it's difficult to find info.

      Great feedback regarding the AFN threads, we will get that sorted. To answer your question: no matter what size grow you have, you are investing time and money. Preventing a total loss and constantly dialing in your setup and better understanding the outcomes your changes is ridiculously valuable. Crop loss is easy to understand and the value of the data is outlined in this article: http://www.cannabisbusinesstimes.com/article/4-cultivators-share-their-best-data-tracking-lessons/
