I recently purchased a 70 W HPS security lamp I guess it is. I have never worked with electricty so just getting the thing to turn on seems alittle difficult to me. I have many questions on how to go about hooking it up. the light comes with a large plastic lens thing, should I put this thing on to grow with?. Assuming i shouldnt attach this thing, the ballast is contained in a 8 inch diameter, nearly 4 inch tall mounting apparatise that the thing u screw the bulb into sticks out of, should I leave the ballast and other thingys in the mounting apparatise?the bulb would hand down a few inchs from that and this would really cramp my grow space. The light also as a sensor like a street lamp does, it turns on when it is dark, do I need to disable or remove this sensor device?, if so i could use some pointers on how to do this, since its wired to the ballast I am unsure how to do this. Next the instructions on wiring it are not easy for me to follow,but I am sure I can figure it out, it says the fixture needs to be connected to 120volt, 60hz power source. I dont know what the voltage on a standard house hold power outlet, but assuming it is sufficent is there away for me to connect my lamp to a extension cord and just plug it into the wall?, a yes or no anwser will do because if I know its possible Ill surely find out how to do it on my own. Any technical advice would be great but I can probaly get help else where as long as I know what im trying to do is possible and safe(no serious fire hazards due to tampering or wire melts). BTW Im planing on growing in a small cabinet scrog style so 70w suits me, also I dont want to use a noticable amount of wattage. Thanks in advance for any knowlegde you can share.
