This beginner set comes with all the necessary tools, such as a Control X3 device, HYDROS App, temperature sensor, pH probe, and more, to monitor and manage a healthy aquarium. Both beginning and experienced hobbyists will find this to be quick and simple to set up. Every HYDROS product is designed, made, and supported in the United States.

What’s Included:

  • 1x Control X3 Unit
  • 1x Power Supply
  • 1x Temperature Sensor
  • 1x pH Probe & Calibration Solutions
  • 1x 4-Outlet WiFi AC Power Strip
  • HYDROS App

About Control X3

Two sensor devices, such as temperature sensors, water level sensors, and leak detectors, can be connected to the HYDROS Control X3. Additionally, the gadget has a Probe Port for measuring pH or ORP levels. Lights, pumps, feeds, and other outputs may all be controlled by Control X3 as well as warnings and notifications. It may be joined to other HYDROS Controls to create a larger system, or it can be used as a standalone controller for pond applications, freshwater tanks, and saltwater aquariums. The Control X3 is certified IP65 and runs on a HYDROS Safety Net to protect both your equipment and aquatic life. Every HYDROS product is designed, made, and supported in the United States.

Versatile and Expandable without Extra Modules

Use any HYDROS device alone or join many together to form a bigger automated aquarium system with NO single point of failure for communication. Each HYDROS product is an intelligent machine with a built-in CPU and scheduling tools.

IP65 Rated – Splash Proof, Dust Proof, and Secure Connection

Devices made by HYDROS resemble industrial controllers because they are designed to work under the challenging conditions of a marine aquarium. Long-term dependability against splashes and corrosive salt spray is guaranteed by the IP65 HYDROS enclosure and aircraft-style connections.

What you can expect from your HYDROS Smart Device

  • Control your HYDROS device(s) from anywhere in the world using the technologically advanced HYDROS cloud-based app
  • Ability to monitor and control your HYDROS device(s) locally through WiFi
  • A fast dual-core 32-bit processor that allows control decisions to be made within each device
  • Internal health monitoring to report voltages, currents, CPU status, and the internal temperature of each device
  • HYDROS Command Bus connections to transfer data and power to devices

Sense Port (2 Available)

The Sense Port is a novel idea for measuring aquarium parameter. Numerous Sense Ports are present in HYDROS devices. A general input port called a “Sense Port” may receive data from a wide range of different kinds of sensors.


Sense Ports currently support:

  • Temperature probes
  • Optical level sensors (single and dual)
  • Capacitive non-contact liquid level sensors
  • Rope leak detectors
  • Point leak detectors
  • Flow rate sensors
  • Magnetic switches
  • Push-button switches

Probe Port (1 Available)

The Probe Port on the HYDROS Control X3 is one of its most impressive ports. The Probe Port will accept an ORP or pH probe, however this is not your typical pH input! The circuitry is built around an ultra-high-quality input chip that is intended for probes of this kind alone. Digital galvanic isolation from the rest of the system is provided by each pH input. Galvanic isolation shields linked system components like motors and pumps from interference. By transferring the signal to the digital domain before it crosses the isolation threshold, digital galvanic isolation maintains the measurement’s precision.

Command Bus (2 Available)

The Control is powered by the HYDROS Command Bus, which is also used to connect to other HYDROS devices for the ultimate failsafe.
