Hey, this is Josh with Growlink, and today I'm going to show you how to access the profile settings on your controller. You start by logging into the Growlink web portal, and then go to the settings tab on the left sidebar.  


Once you select the settings tab, all of your controllers that you have registered to your account will show up in this drop-down. In this example, we only have one controller. If we select this controller, on the right hand side, we'll see a profile button with a cogwheel next to it.  


If you select the controller profile, you can specify the name of the controller and the serial number of the controller is listed, for easier identification if you have multiple controllers. You can also specify the time zone for the controller. In this case, we're in Mountain Standard Time. Clicking the Timezone drop-down allows the user to change the timezone used on the controller to match their desired timezone.


The owner of the controller is the email address that is registered to. There's a field called status notification emails, which is important for specifying where offline alerts get sent to, if the controller spends longer than 20 minutes not communicating with our device cloud.  


There is a lighting shutdown temperature failsafe field, which, if any registered sensor reads above this value, will shut off any devices labeled as a lights type device in order to protect the plants. This failsafe can be disabled by setting the value to 0°F, instead of its default value of 95°F.


Lastly, there's a day range where you can specify when your day window starts and your day range ends. The day start time is when that day starts, and the day end time is when that day range ends. In this case, from 8am to 8pm, our controller is assuming that your lights are on, and when you're using specific rule types such as day only or night only, these are the values that it is referencing.  


You can save any changes made, and then the controller profile will update accordingly. This concludes how one accesses profile settings within Portal 2.0.
