Controller app looks decent, just hope it's more reliable than 'myAI' is at connecting to my Hydra 26HD.  lol

Quite interesting seeing the external impeller form factor on the pump,  Fish Street have one like this just out called the RN, and there's another from WaveLine called the WavePuck.

I wonder if the next version of AI ighting will go this way with the bluetooth le connection , all going well with the pump . My biggest problem was always getting the network connection rather than keeping it there .
I mentioned already on another thread I dont think it will be long before the expensive controllers such as apex will become redundant and replaced with app based tablet or phone control for everything your tank needs .

I have one of the new prime HD lights and the connectivity is spot on. I can access it via Bluetooth on local or via WiFi at home from anywhere I get 4g or broadband with my phone.

I was away for a long weekend while it was hot and turned my light intensity and timetable down from France!

That sounds really good, and just so you know I'm not BSing, here's what I get from the latest version of the app lol

I had a prime HD and now a couple of Hydras.  I found that you have to have pretty strong wifi near the lights or you get connection errors. 

Sure i read somewhere that these pumps are something like £200.   :O

They have the programability and profile of echotech mp series so will be at a similar price point.

An mp10 retails at £250

I would have liked to have seen the motor on the other side of the glass, wouldn’t have been to hard seeing as there the same company as ecotech.

I control pretty much everything through my apex on my phone, if you don’t have a controller you would loose the ports for ph probes etc and then would still need a module for that.

Only thing I havnt is my hydras
