Hey all, Iv bin researching the AI hydra (non-HD) LEDs. I don't have a controller for them, but I do have an apex. Can anyone help me figure out how I can control these lights?
When I plug them in all the LEDs come on full power.

A gen 1 hydra or a non HD hydra?

The first generations had hardwired controllers (first photo) and option for a bluetooth dongle to connect to a "wireless" controller as in photo 2.
Then they put bluetooth modules in the non HD lights to connect to a "wireless" controller, Or a director to have access via cloud connection.

The HD lights have full wireless capibilities so no need for a dongle.
The non HD light would likely need a director to connect to the interwebz.
The older first gen lights ....not sure if you could make it work on an apex.

Hope this helps.
