Just finished setting up my hydros controller. It was pretty simple - the part that took the longest was untangling all the wires from multiple eb8 and outlets. Best part so far is having a WiFi quad plug on the other side of the tank which I can plug in the leds and skimmer.

I was able to link my alkatronic to my controller via the cloud.

I just order my this weekend. Been in the hobby for a long time but this will be my first controller. From what I’ve seen on YouTube it looks pretty simple, which is why I choose it. Can you control wave pumps with it or do you have to have the wave engine?

I LOVE the HYDROS controller - every part of it - simple - scalable - good support - and instructions. I don't have to read through hundreds of posts on a website to get support. Its just all there. Excellent addition (note - have only been using for a short term). One negative - cant use a website to manage the device - but only a phone

Go here https://www.coralvuehydros.com/ and click on Web App in the menu. I set it up as an app with Edge on my surface.

I love mine too. And you can manage it from the web site. Works great.
