Great functionally. By Isaac on 2/28/13

This product works very well but trying to figure out how to work it was an absolute pain and the instructions that came with it left me with more questions still. There is only one fold out page with rigid controller setup options and it doesn't explain all the options you aren't using.

For all of you that want to enjoy your tank and not have to turn lights on or check PH all the time or control what you dose in your tank then the Reefkeeper is the controller you want. I only wish I had got the Elite so I could have more modules. The Lite only lets you have 4 the Elite lets you have 64.
Piece of Mind. A great investment. By Kristofer on 12/11/12

This setup will cover a good portion of setups that are being done by the hobbiest. Temp control, pH, configurable alarms, dimming of fixtures with the ALC module....With the myReef software on your pc, setup is a snap. It's nice to have a snapshot of your system available at your fingertips.

If I knew how much easier and automated my reef tank could be, I would of purchased this long ago. I highly suggest buying this when setting up a new tank. It can save you so much money and give you peace of mind with the alarms. Love the built in wavemaker also.

I have been using the cable/cord mess along with timers. Never again! I called and spoke with the BRS Sales guys and they got me dialed in. Great customer service along with a great product are an unbeatable combination.

This may not be the "best" controller available, but it is easy to use, setup, performs flawlessly and is easy on the wallet.

Getting this setup was a little difficult. Instruction guides and help is on their website, but i knew this before i bought it from previous reviews. Once i did get it going it's great. Contols everything on my tank and it's great knowing i have everything monitored.
Wouldn't start out any other way. By nick on 10/12/12

I got the reef keeper lite plus to start out on my first tank, and I would never try anything else. It's affordable, and does so much out of one package. Literature is pretty crappy though, so some fiddling is needed to learn all the ins and outs of the myreef 2.0 software

Easy installation. Feature rich. Easy to configure from both pc and display. Wouldnt have a tank without it.
A MUST HAVE FOR ANY AQUARIUM By Tim on 10/9/12

I always thought that these controllers were for big systems with more stuff to monitor. I was wrong. I use to spend a lot of time adjusting heaters when different seasons rolled around and trying to time cooling fans to cool the lights at the hottest part of the day. I would constantly have to check the temperature and was never at ease. Now I have everything plugged into my ReefKeeper Lite. I have the tank set at 78 degrees and it stays there all day and all night long. If it gets too hot the cooling fan comes on and if it gets even hotter the lights will turn off for a little while. At night it cools down and the heaters come on. I also have powerheads and refugium lights plugged into it. I recommend getting the Lite Plus package because it comes with the extra strip of plugs. Four plugs just isn't enough and you'll end up getting more.
Keep in mind that this comes with almost no instructions on how to set up. After two hours of pulling out my hair I just called digital aquatics and they walked me through it making it extremely easy. Just call them when you open it because it'll save you time and frustration!
The value controller By Matt on 10/8/12

I purchased this controller to control lights, ATO, an automatic water change system I DIY'd, Ph for my Kalk ATO water and to control temp with a fan/heater.
The SID that came with the unit didn't work, but Digital Aquatics sent a replacement. The Reefkeeper Lite will provide you with basic functionality, and I added the MLC unit to control LED moonlights, too.That's all four modules allotted with the Lite, so I cant add anything else to control, but if you're looking for basic functionality, this controller is the best value.
Some of the components feel flimsy, especially the connections, but everything works. There is a bit of a learning curve, and the MyReef 2.0 software is so-so. Updating firmware is a chore. For the money though, I got my buck's worth.
