nice company but you can do cheaper.. I've bought some parts from them..
And parts from others..

Starting w/ this: (It could be reprogrammed)

4 channels for ramp up/down dimming.. Meanwell LDD drivers (which I believe I bought from Groupbuy...

$78 and all you need to add is 4 channels of LED's............. ;)

Power supplies I bought from all over.. including surplus..

I'm not really into one stop shopping..

After reassessing the Makers controller I still think 2 channels is not enough.. BUT that is my personal opinion..
currently I use 3 and would use the 4th for moonlight though there would be no phasing...Nor is there any seasonal adjustment (on either controller) .. i.e long/short day
cycle..

was going with two makers drivers so four channels 15 leds each. Then doing a separate smaller power supply to power 6 blue leds for moon lighting on a timer. The makers controller wont control moon lighting. Im kinda the opposite at the moment lol. I just want to buy it all and get it built. Im tired of waiting but don't want to buy junk. So trying to do research and they seem like good legit place to buy from. Lots of post with diy led lighting made i have seen comes from group buy.
