Wow, this is the first I ever heard of this controller. After doing a Google search, it looks like the company dropped this product sometime around 2018 to focus on their aviation business and there's no official support for this product anymore. The best resource I could find was about 2,000 posts in a very long thread of user-to-user support and troubleshooting here: http://www.reefcentral.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2460918

Good luck with that.

I am still using a Archon. The problem would be you are more than likely stuck on the firmware version that is on the unit. You can log into it by accessing it as a wifi hot spot. And using 192.168.10.1 as an address in the web browser that should get you in. Go to the system page and it should look like the screen below. This will give you the versions that are on your unit. If the menu has Setup on it then you have a more recent version. I have quit a bit of info in my build thread you can check out.

If you want know more about using the Archon click on my Build Thread Contributor banner and go to post #35 on page 2 of the thread. I go into setting it up and programming the Archon there.
