I changed my schedule from 65% to 100% as I finally understood the schedule function today vs set points. I left my setpoint at 65%. I then put the lights on acclimation with the start at 65%.

Later in the day I thought the tank looks blue where's the cool whites, UV and other leds. I look at my ph and it's low like the peak lighting never came on. I restarted my cell phone. Then I had to reset the radions for them to them to function properly. I guess mobius had a hiccup or something.

Mobius does still have little quirks here and there, but its 1000& better than EcoSmartLive!
The one thing it's not better than is gen4 and apex. Apex never hiccups. I put off upgrading to gen5 because of this.

It took me a while to figure out that there is a set point intensity and a schedule intensity. Coming front an AI light, I was so confused when my light showed now change as I changed just the set point intensity. lol
When I first got my gen5s I had a ton of questions for my friend that's used the gen 5 over a year. That Turkey turns out didn't know all the answers lol. I told him yesterday about how schedule and set points work and he didn't comment on it.

Could very well be. I've never integrated Any AI/Ecotech to my Apex as I don't mind controlling them through their native app.

Now that I am used to the Mobius app, the setpoint intensity and schedule intensity makes total sense.

  • Use the setpoints to control the spectrum and any sun up/sun down simulations.
  • Once you have that figured out, use the schedule intensity to decide how much par you want.

Both ways work but it makes more sense to me this way.

• Schedule 100%
• Setpoints control your intensity along with color channels. That way when you put your setpoints at a number it's actually at that intensity. This way the jagged line goes away on Mobius in place for a solid line. Most importantly you don't have to calculate a percentage to get your actual intensity.

People may also get confused as they will think the jagged line vs solid line has something to do with acclimation.
