Maximise your yield

Bluelab Connect Software enables you to collect data on your crop to spot trends over your growing cycles.

Bluelab Connect devices can connect wirelessly to a computer at a grow site / greenhouse via the Bluelab Connect Stick, which enables the data logging of pH, Conductivity and Temperature to the FREE Bluelab Connect Software. The logged information is viewed on a computer and can also be accessed remotely via the cloud from a mobile device or other computer, allowing the grower to view the status of the grow system 24 hours a day.


Update your current Bluelab Connect Software to 2.0.9 to ensure you’re getting the most from you’re connect software.  
Upgrading to the newest version will keep your network and alarm settings, so you don’t need to reset anything. No data loss- safe for mid grow cycle.

It just takes a couple on minutes, simply follow the 3 steps:
1. Download newest version using download buttons below
2. Close current version
3. Run install of the current download by double clicking file and follow on screen prompts.

Bluelab Connect Software logs .CSV files which can be opened in Excel, Word or Notepad and organized in folders, to simplify finding and managing your data. The data collected enables data analysis and trend reporting to spot trends over grow cycles.

The data the Bluelab cloud collects over time delivers you the power to analyse which conditions produce your biggest, fastest yields and understand the conditions which caused crop issues.  You can download the log file and add your own notes next to your EC/ppm, pH and temperature data, to create and save your unique grow history and analyse and compare results over time.

Common Connect Software frequently asked questions:

Do I have to be connected to the internet all the time?

Only if you want to log to the cloud and view your data remotely. You don’t need to connect to the internet if you choose to only log to your computer.

How far apart can my connect stick and connect device be?

The line-of-sight distance between a connect stick and the connect device (ie Guardian Monitor Connect or Connect Range Extender) should be:
  • Indoor up to 66ft or 20 M
  • Outdoor up to 164 ft or 50 M

Bluelab recommend positioning your Connect Range Extender and the Guardian Monitor Connect as high off the ground as possible, 6ft / 1.8M is the optimum height.

Does my computer need to be on all the time?

Yes, because the software can’t communicate with devices unless it is running so can it log the data. You need to disable sleep, and also disable automatic Microsoft updates. Refer to your Connect Stick getting started guide for instructions.

How long can I log for?

Logging is almost unlimited. There is a limit to the size of a Google spreadsheet (400,000 cells), but once this limit is reached the program will automatically create a new file and rename them part 1 and part 2, or part 3, etc. That’s a lot of data!
