    For years we have advocated a wired network connection for your Apex due to its superior reliability – and we still do. However, for many people a wired connection is just not possible.

    So, for this Apex we spent countless man-hours developing an incredible 802.11g/n Wi-Fi connection with reliability that rivals a wired connection.  And, the connection process to your home network is amazingly simple – getting you set up and on the Apex Fusion cloud service in just a couple of minutes!



    New set up wizards and to-do reminders help guide you through configuring everything from temperature control, trouble alerts to your mobile device, and many other common aquarium tasks.  With this new Apex, an aquarium controller no longer requires an advanced degree — you are up and running in 5 EASY STEPS:

    • Mount it to the wall or inside your cabinet
    • Plug in the probes and your equipment
    • Connect it to your home network via wi-fi or cable
    • Run the new Configuration Wizards
    • Start monitoring and controlling your entire tank, in less than an hour, with no programming


    IoTa – (Internet of Things, Aquarium)
    The Apex is an IoTa platform built for reliability when things go wrong – not just a toy to play with everything is A-OK.

    Every Apex has a built in web-server (tech talk for its control panel) with complete functionality – even if the internet is down! This is important, see why. . .

    Let’s say you have a power outage and want your aquarium to take the appropriate actions to maintain the fish and corals for the longest time possible. Or, what if the internet is down (or a company’s cloud servers) and you simply want to manually turn on your lights or turn off your skimmer.

    Some aquarium controllers work ONLY via their online cloud service, so when the internet is down or slow, you are out of luck. With the Apex you can continue running your tank without interruption.
