HOW TO BUILD A IKEA EKET CONNECTED GROW BOX

Welcome to the website guide of the Eket V2 build video guide.
With two separate chambers this build can do continuous supply in a very small package.

This guide is done with a small and a big eket, but you could do it with two large ones to allow longer vegging, in this case you can do the second eket for vegging with just 2 panels instead of 4.

The normal power usage for this build is below 50w total, which means less than $5/month for veg (4) and $3/month in bloom (3).

The new cardboard compression chamber of the blower allows for a quieter build and makes the carbon filter setup much simpler.

(The attachements below are also downloadable throughout the guide)

Now that our cardboard structure is made and our led panels are attached to it, it's time to place the LED holders inside the growbox!

Pass wires through cable holes

done

Another fine example of things we learn while making the video;** install the LED holders before the ventilation unit** makes it easier to pass the wires :)

Use sandpaper for better adhesiveness

done

Hot glue sticks better on a rough surface, that’s where the sandpaper comes in.
Sand the area and remove the dust before gluing.

HOW TO MAKE CARDBOARD VENTILATION UNIT

This is another "innovation" introduced in this build, previously we'd simply attach the blower to the back of the box, while relatively simple to do, it had a major problem: noise. Placing it inside helps a lot.

In this guide we'll show how to attach the blower inside the box, while taking as little space as possible 👌
