dont think everything is upgradeable
though i hope so as the reeflink is the weak link in their kit
though with 9 lights, 4 vortechs & 2 vectras the upgrade might not be cheap

If you open Reeflink on a PC, you can see what devices are Mobis ready.

Sorry, I meant on EcoSmart Live.

Go to the Devices section
click on the i with the circle around it.

I believe Ecotech mentioned they started sending out products, Vectras, Vortechs etc with the chip already installed in them around the end of 2018. So if you purchased yours after that point, the product is already ready for Mobius. If you purchased anything prior to that they are not chip ready therefor you would have to buy and install it yourself when they become available....

So just an FYI for now the Mobius is ONLY going to work with the Versa but YES in the future with the updates and upgrades software and or hardware mods will allows most of the recent products to work with Mobius. If you know who Deven from Reefdudes is watch his recent videos and will tell you what all will work with Mobius.

It seems to me that ecotech has a controller brain in the works. All of my stuff is mobius ready. Both mp40s, all three xr15s and my m2. They would not of outfitted the last year and halfs worth of equipment to not have something in the works. I have not purchased a dosing system yet and i guess since i am already an ecotech fan boy i might as well go with the versa when it comes even though at this point i dont really dose anything daily except reef energy. Since that has to be refrigerated i have to do that by hand anyhow. I wonder what expensive toy mobius rollout will bring. And i cant wait to justify why i need it.

I can believe that. Having dosing pumps that cannot be individually stopped in case of emergency (e.g. PH increase) seems like a major shortcoming. Controller would definitely address this need. Saying that, I think to compete with Apex and GHL, they must have automated KH measurement at initial release.

I wish Maxspect came up with their own controller and dosing pumps. I like their out of the box thinking and delivering true innovation.

I don't think they have to have KH at the initial release. Many people already have Vortechs and Radion lights. I suspect that many people will also be investing in Versa dosing pumps also. If your that far invested into their product line then you will probably be looking at a ETM controller and a Vectra pump to tie all four areas together. I am assuming that they are going to be encrypting all their control data going forward. So that means if you probably get a mid to late 2020 Vortech pump or Radion light it might not work with Apex/GHL/Aquatronica ecotech modules. Now it's a question of what are you willing to give up to stay on which platform.
