Reef Automation - $10 Per Controllable Outlet


Recommended Posts

Noticed some attention to the wifi power strip on facebook. A user is getting beaten for calling out similarities to an AliExpress $12 strip made in china. Appears to be the same strip with with the Hydros name. Hopefully they will address concerns.

Does it not connect to the main hub thing at all? If not, that seems cheesy. I bought a wifi 4 power strip for $22 off Amazon for my garage mixing station. All I wanted it to do was be able to turn things on/off remotely and run on a timer my main mixing pump 1x per day. It has been flawless since June. For basic timer functions, It’s great. I will agree that EB832 is insanely expensive for what it is.

Yes, I've been following the HYROS progress since they first announced it last year.  It looks really promising and might give Neptune some stiff competition, which is usually a good thing in a niche industry.  I like their assortment of accessories:

I haven't seen one in person yet, but would like to experiment with it at some point.

I've been eyeing getting one. Been comparing that to getting a reefpi setup. I used to enjoy tinkering around with circuit building and computers but not much anymore. The interface and ease/speed of setup with the hydros would be worth it to me.. even if it's likely a re-skinned raspberry pi.

I think I would lean towards this over ReefPi myself too!  Time is precious...  So many half finished projects personally!
