    As I told them at the Expo, the Reeflink is nice... but at about $200 it is just too ridiculous for me to invest in that, and to do what. Set up my lights, common, how many times do you change your light settings!

    If they link up PH probe and temperature probe to the Reeflink, then that can start to become interesting. Especially the temp. Then from there whatever else is needed. But it need to be smarter than just that, it needs to keep memory, tell me my temp fluctuations on a graph for a week. Now, then I might get interested on putting R2000 down on the Reeflink.

    They guy from Ecotech just stood there.

    Currently is can be used to setup you lights, and synchronize the Vortech pumps with it. Yes, it will allow more options on settings than the current settings you can get out of the Radion and or Vortech pumps. Only advantage is that it is (supposedly) easier to use than plugging in your lights directly to the PC.

    But in current state, it is at the end of the day it is a R2000 controller for lights and pumps.

    Unless there is another feature currently on the Reeflink that I do not know about.

    Lol, would have love to see your conversation in person...:tt2: Poor Ecotech rep...
    Unfortunately, i would have to agree with you. If ecotech had more equipment in their product range, & all could be managed with the wireless controller... Then I would be impressed! (probably their eventual goal)
    Like a wireless heater, return pump, ATO etc...
    & it must feature a complete aquarium controlling ability...

    keyword...
    Currently.
    Once it can do whatever else is currently just plans or updates. Then yes. But currently, it is a glorified controller.
    Maybe one day.

    sorry, on the miss-quoting, slipped again, if you highlight a quote in another post, then the quote becomes that persons quote. My bad.

    They release the interface source code to other companies so that their controller software can talk to the Vortech pumps.

    So as they said
    Stay Tuned.
