  1. That's awesome! I wish they would officially become open, maybe put their APIs out on github. The old line would be "we cannot support that" but it is 2021 after all and open source is the way. Thanks for the ravendb tip, was not aware. Been using firestore for cloud (limited but fast and free), and mongo for on prem, raven looks interesting! How are you into hacking REST APIs and pumping data into NoSQL dbs? A dev or just having fun?
  2. Curious if anyone is doing anything beyond what the docs show (AI prime / Hyrda)
  3. That's a plus for sure, my eggs are in one huge basket. Most of the time, the basket is quite wonderful though. Considered having a spare apex brain, spare eb8. Expensive spares though!
  4. That is so dang nice!
  5. Here are a few, if any of these look good the local guys can probably set you up! I hate making things that I don't have myself to test with. No MP -anything here 😂 just a bunch of cheap Jebaos! https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4589722 https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4709077 https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4744846 https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4775289 https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3437651 There are also a bunch on Etsy, even with color choices! https://www.etsy.com/search?q=mp10
  6. Yes, only the eb8 programming thankfully. Thanks again! Interesting!! That's probably it, we did have a recent power fluctuation doing wiring in the garage. Very good to know! Maybe I should UPS it, but with 4 EB8s it gets spendy! That's awesome, thanks for the offer. Good for now, but much appreciated.
  7. Crazy update. Went to the garage to unhook everything. Light was flashing green this morning, instead of solid green (last night) Unplugged USB and AC for 1 minute. Plugged in, it all works now. I lost all programming but had it backed up. Re-applying now!
  8. Sure appreciate how quick you are to always help APEX users in need! Good idea on another APEX. I will try to see if I can find someone in town local here like @stylaster For now I am going to shuffle some outlets around and free up another less critical EB8. Then bring this one upstairs and try it in different ports / different cables as you suggested. Depending on testing results, will probably order another EB8, worst case I have a spare... Sure is odd though how the light goes solid green.
  9. This guy had the same symptoms, had to reinitialize all to fix. Hoping there is something lesser, I have 4 eb8s and a ton of programming and virtual outlets. http://www.reefcentral.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1943760
  10. Just nodding off tonight, and a calcium reactor PH high alarm went off. Went to investigate, it looks like my EB8 in the garage is disconnected. I cannot get it back online. Things I have tried: - Powered off eb8 by unplugging and disconnecting USB cable for 30 seconds - Rebooted apex via fusion - Traced out USB connections. They appear valid, and in fact make the light turn solid green on the eb8 when plugged in - Deleted the module via fusion. It won't come back now. This EB8 is remote in my garage. Probably 50' or so from the apex controller. Wired via homemade cable, cat6 with USB ends. Been that way for at least 5 years. Its possible the USB is bad, but seems unlikely given the years of service. However, I can drag the eb8 upstairs tomorrow morning and hook it up closer with a shorter cord and see... Honestly though, thinking the EB8 is finally just bad. Hoping not, any other ideas to try? This is surprisingly difficult to google for some odd reason. @SuncrestReef
  11. I miss him, was an awesome LED resource and good guy. Crossing my fingers he will be back again, so I tagged him 😂
  12. Thanks for responding, its a relief we are on the same page. I come hear to learn, easier here than the hard knocks way. Appreciate those who take the time to discuss and share. Check this post out below, it explains how, but sadly without the original pics.
  13. Turned out great! Nice job on not using the saddle. It is tempting, we have all been tempted, some more than others!
  14. Hmmm, you got me thinking with that comment. Back in 2015, I added a GFCI per APEX outlet on the DT. 16 of them. Here was my thinking: - If a single component goes bad, only one GFCI trips, everything else keeps running. Why I did this: - Many years ago, I used to have a single GFCI for the whole tank. While at the beach it tripped due to a bad skimmer pump. My dad came and saved the day. - If I had a separate GFCI for everything, only the skimmer would have been off. - This works well for Christmas lights in the rainy NW! - It was recommended by @Bombertech, remember him? That was my process at least, in case I am explaining it poorly or don't understand something, quite possible! So you say that is a good way to come home to a dead tank? Help me understand, please!
  15. Here is the old GFCI thread (also 2015, pretty old). Unfortunately pics did not get transferred to AWS apparently, so no pics.
