- Hydor Koralia SmartWave Controller
easy wavemaker By Brian on 6/10/13Brian would recommend this product to a friendJust plug pumps into it and plug in and ready to go . I think easiest wavemaker to use.
Hydor Smartwave Controller By Doel on 4/25/13Doel wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI had it & it worked fine for about two months and now one side runs constant so much for random flow. Save your money & get a better controller, you get what you pay for, & I didn't get much LOL.
Awesome, Affordable, Easy By Cory on 4/5/13Cory would recommend this product to a friendI love this thing, it was affordable, easy to setup and use, and it just plain works. Yes there are better wavemakers out there, and they cost three times as much or more. I needed to change the flow in my tank once or twice a day and this little beauty does the trick. I have mine set to 6 hours in a attempt to better emulate a natural tide change. I already owned the Koralia powerheads which was helpful since they are designed to be turned off and on randomly. But make sure that you do have powerheads designed to support this feature. The feeding feature is also awesome, it is much better than my old method of shutting off the powerstrip.
Affordable Random Flow By Terrance on 12/26/12Terrance would recommend this product to a friendThis unit is great for random flow, especially when I already have koralia evolution pumps and did not want to go out to buy a vortech. Honestly, I do not want all the bells and whistles from the vortech. I only needed a simple unit for random flow. The smartwave was designed for the evolution pumps, so I am not sure if it works with other brands or older models.
Warning: this unit does produce a clicking noise from the pumps turning on and off. I increase the intervals when nobody is around. When I am at home, I decrease the intervals to make the clicking noise less noticeable and annoying. Keep in mind that even the vortech is not silent and everyone will have different noise tolerance.
Works Great By Mike on 12/20/12Mike would recommend this product to a friendI added the Smartwave and 2 Hydor Koralia powerheads to my tank. Corals seem to love the alternating current, fish are having fun riding the wave in different directions. This product like all Hydor products is a quality product and works as advertised. While its not a full blow wave maker with tons of bells and whistles, it does just fine and is well worth the money. I noticed instantly some leftover junk floating around the tank as the current was changing, and now that has all been skimmed out. Win/Win.
Popped my GFCI, One side of unit dead By GLC on 11/17/12GLC wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI plugged this unit in without anything connected and it popped my GFCI. After resetting I plugged in two Hydor pumps and found that one side was dead. BRS would not take the unit back and told me to deal with the manufacturer. Unit sent back to Hydor for analysis.
Easy and ready to go By Andrew on 11/9/12Andrew would recommend this product to a friendI don't think I've purchased any peice of equipement that is as usefull and so easy to set up as this little unit. A few miniutes out of the box and it was set and ready to go. I'd recommend this to anyone with a tight budget looking to get a variable flow in their tank.
Good Basic controller By MJ's Custom Aquarium Water on 9/21/12MJ's Custom Aquarium Water would recommend this product to a friendIt has good basic controls and functionality. I would have enjoyed a little more flexibility, but for the price it's hard to complain.
easy and it works By mud on 9/6/12mud would recommend this product to a friendI have two hydor 750 pumps on this and love the ease of use. It alternates the flow and has a few settings for you to use.
Great Product By dgil71 on 7/10/12dgil71 would recommend this product to a friendSo far so good. Any issues is coming from my powerheads, not the controller.
Great Controller By JDR on 5/22/12JDR would recommend this product to a friendI have these controlling 2 Koralias 1400 and they are doing great. Wont do waves like a the ecotechs but will give you some random currents.
Good on a budget.. By Bobby on 5/10/12Bobby would recommend this product to a friendIt is what it is, a very simple device to alternating current. Works very well. I gave it a 4 on recommendation and performance because if your looking for a wave, this isn't it the product for you.

Is the Smartwave controller compatible with the Hydor day/night sensor?
Bulk Reef Supply Hey Edwin,
It is not. The smartwave controller is essentially just an oscillating on/off controller. It does not have the ability to slow down or speed up pumps or interface with the day/night sensor to change the speeds/programming. For that you would want the controllable koralia pumps and the hydor wavemaker.
SmartWave installation is a breeze with a convenient built in mounting eyelet and water resistant body allowing you to hang the SmartWave anywhere you can put a nail.
The SmartWave is also easy to use with 3 different movement programs set with the turn of a dial; Alternating, Synchronized and Feed. The interval length is easily set with just the turn of a knob around a clearly marked time scale. LED indicators quickly tell you what is on and what is off.
The SmartWave works with Koralia Nano, Evolution and Magnum as well as other powerheads on the market compatible with ON/OFF programs.
