I actually just bought a pair of noops for my new display. Looks like I’ll be getting a third because this is completely nuts!! I can’t even wrap my head around it as a business practice!! I know it’s only 2.99 a month to keep it in use but where does it end. And with a light that is no longer supported by the manufacturer. Dave made an amazing light and was way ahead of his time in regards to testing and spectrum and just the beauty that the light had. It’s a shame!I'd be looking at some noops or smat farm, or go whole hog with some radions, Kessils, hydras, etc.... Sucks op... After reading up on them, they were the ticket back when you bought them and weren't cheap!
My other thought is, honestly, how many people out there are still utilizing bluefish. I bet most reefers have never heard of it as a light controller. So what is the gain?
This! The app hasn’t been updated in 4 years according to IOS.I was a big supporter of nanobox back in the day. Owned 4 of their lights and let Dave used my photos free of charge. Was really trying to support small business. Learned my lesson. Never again. I will throw my money at the big companies because they provide better innovation, support, and future proofing.
Dont buy things that only work with a round-trip to some server thats not yours.I’m sure this will come for all LED people eventually.
I can’t believe that Neptune doesn’t charge yet for fusion
Who needs app for lights and pumps. Just more things to go wrong. I like physical controllers for things that are just set it and forget it.Dont buy things that only work with a round-trip to some server thats not yours.
I like this about the old AI lights with wifi, they host their own internal local website, don't need internet, can't be rendered useless against my will. Same with a bunch of other smart home gear that has local websites.
People hate on that and say that apps are better, but with apps and clouds you are at the complete mercy of people that have every motive to extort or abandon you down the line.
i dont know if you have heard, but Eufy had a pretty huge data breach regarding their doorbells.... https://9to5google.com/2022/11/29/eufy-camera-cloud-security-leak/Many people now pay a monthly service fee for their doorbell. I refuse. Love my Eufy!
