Activate the Grow box after the motherboard change

Below process only applies to some users.

If your replacement motherboard is shipped directly from our PCB manufacturer, it won't include the serial number (SN). Once you pair it with your grow box, you'll see an activation alert on the app. Click Start.

To activate, click the 'Scan Barcode' button, then use your phone's camera to scan the barcode located behind the grow box. Should you encounter any issues completing the activation, don't hesitate to reach out to our support team right away.
