Quick & Easy Setup

There is no complicated programming language to learn. If you can operate a smartphone, you can be the operator of a smart aquarium—tap, drag, press, or flick to adjust settings using intuitive icons and simple menus. Schedule each component in your aquarium life support system to run at a specific time, frequency, or intensity. You can also use real-time data and easily configure more complex actions.

IP-65 Rated – Splash Proof, Dust Proof, and Secure Connection

HYDROS devices look like industrial controllers because they are built to function in the harsh environment of a marine aquarium. The IP65-rated HYDROS enclosure and aircraft-style connectors ensure long-term reliability in the face of splashes and corrosive salt spray.


Command Bus - 2 Available

The Command bus communicates with other HYDROS devices for the ultimate failsafe and can also power other Control devices.

Drive Port - 3 Available

The Drive Ports provide switched 12V DC power for running small aquarium devices. The Control continuously monitors the exact current supplied by each port, so you will be immediately notified if a motor or pump quits drawing current or draws too much.

Each drive port can handle up to 1.5A and the entire device can handle up to 3A total.

Drive Ports currently support:

  • Auto Top-Off (ATO) pumps
  • Dosing pumps
  • Cooling fans
  • Cabinet LED lights
  • Water solenoids to control reverse osmosis systems
  • Steering Valves

Control up to 8 WiFi Devices

The HYDROS App allows you to create rules and set schedules to control our 4-Outlet WiFi AC Power Strips and Smart Outlets. Quickly turn on or off different pieces of aquarium equipment like pumps, powerheads, lights, heaters, algae scrubbers, UV sterilizers, protein skimmers, and more.
