The Seneye will include all components for measuring PAR.
The System will need to be re-calibrated for the pH and Ammonia. this can be done during the monthly slide change. There is not a shelf life however the slides will only last 1 month in the aquarium. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Most seneye products come with a one year limited warranty. You can check your warranty here: https://www.seneye.com/warranty
There is no additional fee to measure PAR and it is built into the module itself.
When plugged into a PC it will be able to monitor and read PAR levels every 10 minutes, Same with the web server. The levels will be kept and stored for viewing previous PAR levels.
There will be one included slide with the kit. It is a great idea to have replacement slides on hand for replacement in the coming months. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
We are not aware of any way for the software to connect unfortunately. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions.
This will use a LUX meter similar to a PAR meter and can be moved around the tank to find the correct readings if needed. This is actually an ideal measurement device for LED lights. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
This is not compatible with Mac or iOS however if you purchase the kit with the web server you can access the information through any browser. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Unfortunately there is not a good way to save the discs after placing in the tank. They will lose performance if removed and dried regardless of drying or storage. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
The seneye is able to monitor all types of light evenly! For double ended bulbs we have had great luck with the phoenix and Giesemann. I have included a link below!
The Seneye will record a par measurement every so often, it does also give you live readings as well. You can take multiple measurements around the tank at one time.
The Reef Monitor does come with one slide. It is powered through USB that can be powered through any USB port. It does not come with a 120v or 12v power adapter, but they can be purchased separately.
What does it do?
Constantly monitors water temperature, so you can get an alert if your heater breaks or your chiller fails
Monitors the highly toxic free ammonia (NH3) at very low levels, so you can stop your fish from dying from Ammonia posioning.
The seneye monitors pH in your aquarium or pond water between 6.4 and 9. This range is ideal for most aquatic life and by focusing on this range increased accuracy has be achieved.
Readings are only taken when the seneye device is in water, no false readings.
Monitors ambient LUX and can be used to take direct LUX readings, understand how your light degrade over time.
Understand where on the kelvin range your lights are and how light can change over time.
Monitor the Photosynthetically Active Radiation (PAR), understand if you have the correct quanity and quality of light for your corals or plants.

Great product and good customer service By phillipt on 3/13/2017phillipt would recommend this product to a friendwell worth the price , easy to use and monitors what you really need saving you from expensive test kits in the long run.
Great monitor, if you don't already have one By Jeremy on 2/21/2017Jeremy would recommend this product to a friendThis is a nice little device for a number of reasons.
- It is a low cost PAR and LUX meter. LUX for fish-only tanks, and PAR for reef or planted tanks. That alone is probably worth the cost. I just wish it had a horizontal mount, not just the suction cup to mount vertically.
- It is the only real-time ammonia monitor. That hasn't been a life saver for me yet, but if you have the money, it helps with piece of mind.
- The temp and pH monitoring is useless to me, since I have Apex, and it already checks all of that, and more. But if you don't have one of the other full-system controllers, this is a great alternative.Temp and pH stay fairly close to my Apex measurements. (Apex is in sump, and Seneye in the tank). And those can be adjusted, if they are off a bit.
I'm going to continue using this. It's a great safe-guard, and redundancy is good. If they make a new one that does ammonia AND alkalinity or calcium, I will upgrade in a heartbeat!
Wont stay put! Par meter works. By Steven on 2/16/2017Steven wouldn't recommend this product to a friendThe suction cup mounting stinks! It wont stay on the glass. The monitoring would be nice but i dont wat to have this thing just hanging in the tank. Par meter works good with led lights. At least i can use it to check par.
PAR meter works great! By Ronald on 1/17/2017Ronald would recommend this product to a friendEasy to set up for PC laptop and was up and running gathering par readings in 30 minutes. Definitely a must have for deterring light levels for finicky corals!
Amazing... By BeardedTridacna on 1/9/2017BeardedTridacna would recommend this product to a friendInstalled easy, lots of great functions... After a week it began to send texts like "Resistance is Futile". I'm scared, and now it has taken over my household, it even turned the Keurig against me. Note: It made me give 5 stars. Please help me.
Affordable Par Meter By ML on 12/18/2016ML would recommend this product to a friendWorth the money just for the par meter! You may be surprised how high or low your lighting is until you get one, I sure was.
Inexpensive PAR meter By Bob on 12/11/2016Bob would recommend this product to a friendIt works but not with Apple unless you get the wifi version.
I bought a cheap $99 notebook PC to use it.
So for $260 I have a PAR meter, by far the cheapest option out there. Who knows maybe I'll set it up for temp redundancy in the future.
This this is junk By chance on 9/14/2016chance wouldn't recommend this product to a friendThis thing is a joke I tried customer service- there was none, tech support-none, someone to answer their phone even at the seneye company even no and hell no! I'm sorry but this left a very bad taste in my mouth after the purchase of this and the wifi box as well which cost well over $400 at the time I'm sorry but This is not right at all to spend this kind of money for basically a constant ph meter, ammonia and temperature readings and water level sensor that you can check all on from your smart phone through the app and have alerts sent to you in texts which when it works is great!i would have given it a zero but it won't let me so there ya go
WOW! By Giancarl on 9/14/2016Giancarl would recommend this product to a friendI saw this product at macna and i love it!
PAR is on the spot and PUR is a great addition!!!!
QT Ammonia Feature all I wanted By Drew on 9/12/2016Drew would recommend this product to a friendReally a big fan of active medicated large QT tanks and Ammonia is always a concern. Since I switched to this with active Ammonia Monitoring, using buffer PRO salt mix, ordering only through favorite store through Quality Marine, and using Quinone Sulfate through vet everything lives!!!!
Excellent piece of gear to compliment my controller By DeepBlue45 on 6/30/2016DeepBlue45 would recommend this product to a friendI purchased the Seneye because I run a ReefKeeper Elite controller but don't have it connected to internet. With the total amount I have invested in fish/corals I like that this gives me a back-up pH/temp monitor plus ammonia monitoring with alarms over internet via the wifi module. Also, running only LEDs I think the PAR meter is almost mandatory. I ran into a few challenges during set-up but otherwise functioning smoothly now and low maintenance.
WORTH IT FOR THE PAR METER By DavidC on 6/29/2016DavidC would recommend this product to a friendI bought this after BRS reviewed the Seneye and affirmed it's accuracy.
I did not want to spend $300 or more for a PAR meter. If you're wondering why the price for the Seneye PAR meter is much less, I presume it's due to the fact that you connect the meter to your own PC to monitor PAR, rather than with a hand held monitor.
Anyway i was really wondering what my PAR levels were in my 38 gallon Nano. The results were a real eye opener. It turned out the Seneye indicated that my PAR levels were very low. Even near the top of the tank, direcly under the lighting, the PAR barely reached 400. I had had my Radion at about 40% intensity. I now have them at 66% and all my corals, including SPS, are doing fine.
I will say that the temp & PH readings are definitely off. However, I bought this solely to measure PAR and I am happy with this purchase.
