Vertex undertook the challenge of making an aquarium controller on an open source platform. The Android-based operating system lets you fully customize your controller for your needs without having to learn any coding or proprietary software. If you have a smartphone today, you will know how to use the Cerebra. You can now have an internet browser, streaming videos, and instructional manuals right on your controller. If you need to convert alkalinity readings from PPM to DKH, you can bookmark your favorite conversion chart, or if you are looking for a new skimmer, you can watch and read product reviews directly from the Cerebra. With an open source controller, it is just a matter of time before many useful apps come to the market, making reef keeping fun and easy.

Has potential By Ryan on 11/25/2016Ryan wouldn't recommend this product to a friendReally like what is to come from vertex from this product. I bought when this product was in "Beta" but to be honest it should be considered an alpha where it currently is in development. Additionally this controller is very easy to learn and is only getting better as time goes on.
