If I ever get mine… I’ll let you know. In the area of Edmonton Alberta Canada. I’ll be trying to connect a solar module to mine as well

@TroyD

Are you planning to use the solar + battery option?
What kind of setup for solar power are you going to use?


#4

Troy,

Do you have an AC power source as backup?

I have a canadian tire solar panel… i’m not sure of the wattage (2 feet by 4 ft) and when I think about it, yes a battery will be needed.

An AC power source would be easy enough to hook up (20 feet from a plug-in) so I might just do that instead but solar would be nice seeing as I already have the panel.

Hey Troy,

I’m going to be really honest and tell you that the most reliable way to run your Farmbot is to have a safe and secure AC power supply. Run an extension chord and your gonna be way better off.

The Farmbot can run from Wi-Fi but if you have an dedicated Ethernet Cable going to the Farmbot that’s the best way to eliminate many of the connection issues.

After testing out the Farmbot Wi-Fi connection I have found that there are several things that will cause connection issues with Wi-Fi.

Microwave Ovens will cause radio noise and disrupt the Wi-Fi connection. Also, other radio transmitters, Wi-Fi networks from your neighbours and electrical equipment nearby can cause Wi-Fi connection issues.

Hi Marc, I have farmbot in the Los Angeles, CA area. Can you help me finish my setup?


#9

Yes I can likely help you. I will send you a message directly to talk about specifics.
