Can I use an ICV6 to manually set the power on the skimmer throughout the day remotely?

A scenario such as this: I want to set skimmer to run 25% power for a few hours after I dose plankton and then later remotely set power back up 75%. Can I do it?
Thank you.

Hi yes you can. As there's auto mode provided, you can set a period for skimmer to run at one level, then another period for the skimmer to run in a different level. As shown in App picture below:

This stinks I got mine just after Black Friday and it's sitting here cuz I'm not ready for water yet in my new 180 built I got the icv6 also. So I can run gyres and skimmer . The suspense is killing me but not rushing it....it will happen one day. Will the icv6 run maxspect lighting?

Hi thanks for your support. Yes our Innovate Series Lighting, such as Ethereals, RSX/RSXF, Recurve are all able to add on ICV6 and be controlled remotely via App

Curious since it has two outlets to oxygenate the air, have you seen higher pH levels?

Having issues with the icv6. I connected both via wifi and direct to phone on maxspec wifi. So the only thing I see is this feed mode which does nothing. Then I press the + and try to select devise and it won't let me select the gyre. I watched the videos seems easy but I'm stuck

Hi thanks for your support. So when you touched the white circle, it cannot be selected?

How about initializing the Gyre 200 controller and add it on App again.
The methods of initializing the Gyre 200 controller is:
1st Cut the power;
2nd Press and hold the dial of the control dial, while reconnecting the power,
then it could enter System Setup Page.
3rd On System Setup Page, select Option 3 "Initialize"

Ok that worked...thank you. I will hook up my maxspec duo 600 later this week.
Hi thanks. Because our Gyres, lights or skimmers are allowed to connect to one ICV6 only, if they have been connected to one ICV6 before, and you want to connect them to a new ICV6, in which case you just need to reset or initialize the devices(Do not select Restore), then you can clear its cache, and hook it up to a new ICV6.

Oh, good! Our support staff is out of the office since it's after hours. I always feel guilty when I get an alert that someone needs help and I have them ask them to be patient and wait until tomorrow. So I am relieved that you got his all figured out!

Very cool. I have the Aeraqua as well, but have not explored the controller capabilities at all! I just leave it on level 7 with the adjustments on the body/pumps wide open, and it pulls out some nasty gunk!
 

Would you be shocked by today's reefing hobby if you had just returned after a long period of time?
