I’d like to begin by applauding the grobo team for a job well done! I recieved my unit today prior to estimated times. While I haven’t recieved my complete order I’m out of the gates and on my way to my first grobo grow, so thank you.
The product packaging is excellent minimizing the risk of damage during transit. Stephens YouTube videos are really underrated and walked me through setting up the unit. In fact, if some of you whom may not know that Grobo has their own YouTube channel with all types of stuff up there. I enjoyed the video that showed Stephen’s first grow setup. I would recommend checking out their channel and hope they add more to all of their social media accounts eg YouTube and Twitter.
Unboxing was easy, setup was easier. WiFi can be frustrating at first, but after a few attempts the grobo came online.
•tip - if you hold down the back button for roughly 10 seconds you can put the device into pair mode (green) making the process easier to get off the dreaded flashing blue light and into green goodness.
Literally unboxing to grow was ten minutes .
I can tell a lot a of work went into the design, both hardware and web based tools such as the “app” and the forum.
At this point, I would absolutely recommend this device to family and friends whom are not knowledgeable about growing or want a unit that eliminates the thinking, but small enough and sleek to fit into most interiors. This will be my first complete grow indoors so it’s very exciting for me to splurge on a unit as a birthday present to myself.
I did have a day 1 issue with the air stone and what i would considered extremely loud rattling which likely happened in transit, but was easily fixed before a grobo team member could respond.
The grow journal is a neat feature and I just got mine underway. All in all, I’m a happy consumer!
Thank You Team Grobo
