Telos 6 Pro Mesh Led 185w

The Telos 6 Pro [Mesh] is the revolutionary new version of our proven, industry leading grow light. With Telos Mesh built in, this enables the wireless synchronization and control of a single Telos system up to several thousand Telos systems all within a single Bluetooth Mesh network. Designed with security first and foremost, all commands are encrypted and, once the lights are connected, the system will be invisible to anyone searching for a bluetooth network. For more information on how Telos Mesh works, take a look at our blog post at https://www.teloslighting.co.uk/mesh/.      

The proprietary Mesh hardware has been designed and engineered by Telos and integrated into our next generation of wireless waterproof LED drivers. The Telos app is available for Android and iPhone and allows Precise PPFTM control of the light output, as well as on/off scheduling and an integrated sunrise and sunset mode. Multiple lights can be grouped within the app and separate schedules and PPF levels applied to different groups. By tapping the integrated touch sensor it is also possible to cycle through four pre-set PPF levels without using the app. 

The LED modules use the latest Osram and Samsung LED diodes (OSLON® Square Hyper Red and Samsung 5050 White LEDs). These LEDs are amongst the highest quality and most efficient chips on the market, providing 90% light output for over 50,000 hours (L90). Telos systems use secondary optics to maintain a high uniformity of light, eliminating hotspots for equal photometric distribution across the plant canopy.

The Telos 6 Pro [Mesh] has an adjustable output of 0-180W, up to 450 PPF, and is perfect for grow areas up to 0.8 x 0.8m. We provide verified performance data so that you may accurately plan and manage the lighting in your grow area and we’ll also assist with professional lighting plans for larger areas upon request.

The Telos 6 Pro [Mesh] and Telos 10 Pro [Mesh] both feature an IP66 water and dust proof design. Thoroughly clean your lens covers between cycles for maximum brightness and grow safely in wet and humid environments. Full 5-year manufacturer warranty included.

About Telos Mesh

Telos mesh is a secure, precise and wireless control solution that will revolutionise the way that growers control their Telos LED’s. Here at Telos we don’t release a new product every week. Instead, we think about what the future of horticulture is going to look like and try to develop unique solutions and technologies that are going to make the biggest impact. This new innovation is the result of two years of hard work by our R&D team, and we’re really proud of what they have achieved.

How does Telos mesh work?

The diagram below shows multiple Telos systems communicating together without a wifi connection. Instead, Telos Mesh uses the latest Bluetooth Mesh standard for communications. Telos mesh is an “offline” and “decentralised” network, meaning it doesn’t require a router or an internet connection. Each light within the network has a latest gen micro processor and functions like a small computer with its own independent operating system.

When a new network is created on a phone or smart device this creates new network encryption keys and addresses. Each light that is added to a network stores all the addresses and network settings meaning once you’ve set the network up you don’t need to stay in range for schedules and dimming levels to continue to work. Each light has a range of around 50m and can talk to any other lights on that network within that range. But that’s not all; each light added increases the strength and range of the network by passing on and relaying messages. For example, if we positioned one Telos every 50m between our HQ and the moon we could send a message to dim the last light in the chain on the moon from a local smart device. Each light would receive and relay the message until it reaches the light closest to the moon.

Is it Secure?

Privacy and Security is at the core of the Telos Mesh design and all commands are sent with end to end encryption. Firstly the user is in control, the bluetooth functionality doesn’t turn on until activated by the user using the touchpad.

When bluetooth is activated you can connect to the network in around 30 seconds. Once connected, the system will stop broadcasting/advertising. Advertising is important for most bluetooth devices like a pair of headphones as it allows you to find and connect to devices more easily. Advertising isn’t needed with Telos mesh as once added to a network there’s no need to disconnect and reconnect later. 

The device switches permanently from “advertising” to “listening mode” where it listens for encrypted messages sent from the app. This means that you can’t find devices using bluetooth sniffers or bluetooth listening devices and the only device that can talk to the networks is one that has the network encryption key. If the network login or smart device that created the network is lost, then you need to reset each light on the network using the touchpad. Although this could be a long process, it guarantees the privacy and security of the network. 

There is an additional option for backing encryption keys and mesh setting to the cloud, this is useful for larger projects when multiple devices need access to the mesh controls

What are the benefits of Telos Mesh? 

Our mesh drivers are the world’s first bluetooth-integrated waterproof drivers for horticulture and when paired with the Telos Mesh software provide revolutionary new functionality for growers. 

Traditional linking controllers have used ‘telephone wire’ cables to daisy chain a limited number of units together. Using a completely wireless system such as Telos Mesh you can reduce the set-up time and amount of clutter within the grow area. 

Conventional 0-10v dimming usually is a fairly limited technology that adjusts output in incremental steps by turning a knob on the driver or ballast. Changing the setting adjusts the brightness of the light by a consequence of changing the wattage of the power supply.

With Precise PPF™ you can specify the exact PPF output of your Telos LED using the app without being limited to increments. The system takes into account the changes in LED efficiency at the required wattage and the lifetime degradation of the LED performance to calculate the exact power output needed to achieve the requested PPF level. Compared with a 0-10v dimming system this provides a much more accurate and repeatable solution for growers

The app also displays the active power consumption and efficiency at different output settings.

The app allows you to easily group lights together and you can have multiple groups within the same mesh network. Schedules can be created to turn the lights off and on throughout the day and separate schedules can then be applied to different groups of lights within the same network. You can also apply a PPF setting to each group of lights. These combined functions are really useful for advanced growers who will be able to control multiple tents with plants at different stages of the lifecycle using the same smart device. 

The app has an integrated sunrise and sunset mode which helps the plants to wake up and acclimatise slowly when the light period starts. When it’s time for the lights to switch off again the simulated sunset helps to smooth out the temperature change within the grow area, making it easier to maintain the correct environment for your plants.

Any additional features?

The system also includes an offline mode so that you can control your Telos LED without connecting to the app. By pressing the integrated touch sensor on the side of the driver you can cycle through the preset PPF output levels which are suitable for propagation, veg and flower
