Will robo-tank kit work with The mars aqua led light if I purchase it?  Jim

Hi Jim, I did some looking around and it looks like it can be done if you open it and add wires to connect it to the controller. I found this video with someone showing it working if this is the light you have? They appear to operate on 0-10v analog signal which is no problem. If you take the lid off and everything is the same then it should be ok but I can't guarantee it.

Instead of plugging into the Apex you would connect to Robo-Tank. :)

I have 6 of those lights and would be interested in seeing if they ramped but really is it worth it to do it for 2 channels all blue or all white that is what I am going back and forth with

There is no app, you connect to a webpage running on the controller. The webpage is phone friendly, here's a link to how it looks, on a phone everything goes in one column and you scroll up or down the page.

It is easy to connect, you can load a custom 9 character password and username on a file that goes on the SD card. Then type in your local IP address or your IP address from your internet provider in any browser and it should work.

Nice, get to it! Do you have one of those digital-analog converters? If not PM me. I think it would be worth it, then they can slowly come on/off.

Someone sent me this link, this person confirmed with an oscilloscope that those lights do run on 0-10v analog so they shouldn't be a problem. Just need to run wires to the dimming wires.
