Nanolux is proud to introduce its new NCCS APP system. The new NCCS APP can be downloaded for free from the Google Play Store or the Apple APP Store.

Use the APP to control your grow room from anywhere in the world on your Smart Phone or Tablet. The first of its kind; the NCCS is an “all-in-one” application that will continually grow as your needs do. The NCCS windows software was released in 2014 for PCs to control light timing, dimming, and overheat protection. Originally operating on its own wireless cloud network, Nanolux has now created an APP for both an iPhone and Android. The APP is far more versatile and extensive compared to the original PC software release. The new APP will have the same lighting controls plus several new controls including: room temperature, humidity, and CO2 with the NCCS THC controller, and soon our pH/EC doser. Just like the lighting controls, the THC and pH controller will be wireless, and adjustable from the APP. With the APP, you can set the perfect growing parameters and have peace of mind knowing it’s all automated. No longer do you have to constantly walk through the grow room and take readings from several different controllers. Simply open your phone APP to monitor or adjust settings depending on your plants needs. This means less time wasted in the growing environment, which provides less of a chance of disrupting the controlled environment or introducing outside pathogens. This system will continue to expand as we introduce new controllers and monitors. Our next launch will include remote connectivity to Nanolux security cameras, environmental controllers and dosing controllers in the Spring of 2017. We look forward to bringing you the newest, most reliable environmental controllers on the market.

The Nanolux cloud control system was designed and engineered to provide a complete solution for the control of the lighting and environmental controls of a grow room. The NCCS system allows for precisian control of all devices in a grow room through its simple and intuitive computer software program. At the heart of the NCCS is a software program which allows you to specify all of the parameters of your lighting and environmental control settings in your room. The program is then downloaded from your computer to the DTU {data transfer unit). The DTU is the brain of the system and communicates and controls all of the selected functions in the grow room through wireless modem communication. The DTU controls lighting ballasts and environmental control devices by communicating wire/essly with individual RTU {remote terminal unit) USB devices. The NCCS system currently allows for precisian control of your lighting system with dimming, multiple lighting areas, high-temperature dimming features along with fan control. The NCCS will be adding C02 functions, humidity and temperature control, pH and nutrient control, pump control and remote camera features in the near future.

The DTU is the brain of the NCCS system and communicates and controls all of the selected functions in the grow room through wireless modem communication. The DTU controls lighting ballasts and environmental control devices by communicating wirelessly with individual RTU (remote terminal unit) USB devices.

  • Input Voltage DC 3.3V-6V
  • Wireless Frequency 433.5-434.5 MHz
  • Communication Port > USB2.0
  • Measurement 85MM * 150MM * 28MM
  • Weight 142.4g
  • Controls 999 RTU devices



The RTU is the data transfer communication device that is installed on the Nanolux Ballasts which allows them to communicate with the DTU. They receive information from the DTU communicating when to dim and turn on and off. They also send data back to the DTU on the status of the ballast.
