As long as your Vortech's are wireless enabled (all radions are already) you can wirelessly connect to the WXM module when plugged into the apex. The WXM is still required on the new apex as the RF chip on the Radions and Vortechs does not work with WiFi. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions.
This will not currently connect with the Vectra pumps. Only the Vortech's and Radions. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
The WXM module will allow you to control your Radion lighting fixture from directly from your Apex unit.
Radion control is planned for the future but as of right now (January 2014) the WXM module only controls the vortech pumps.

Works-Expensive By Jason on 1/16/2017Jason would recommend this product to a friendWhile I like the module, it is expensive. I was able to easily connect to both my vortech mp10s and setup a custom program. Probably worth it if you already have vortechs and an apex controller.
No issues so far By Mark on 8/29/2016Mark would recommend this product to a friendWell these wont let you control your vortech pumps or lights like the ReefLink does but if you have an Apex, Its the way to go. Even though its missing some functionality, there are plenty of settings/options that will let you configure your pumps/lights the way you want them to be. It's not a deal breaker for me and I would rather have one system for control than 2. Be aware that this product does not support the Vectra.
Gives a lot of control over the pumps By Tray on 5/17/2016Tray would recommend this product to a friendA great add on to the system if you use vortech pumps. It gives you a lot of easy to access control over the pumps and a lot of customization of operation.
No more messing with buttons. By BrianOH on 3/27/2016BrianOH would recommend this product to a friendThis is a must if you own any ecotech product,no brainer.
Great By Simiakos on 12/17/2015Simiakos would recommend this product to a friendSimple to sync and works flawlessly.
Great product By bl95 on 9/10/2015bl95 would recommend this product to a friendThe only way to control your Vortech pumps. Fusion makes it easy to change modes, timing, intensity, etc...
junk By Roger on 9/3/2015Roger wouldn't recommend this product to a friendLightning mode won't allow for percentages, cloud mode too. Acclimation mode is unsupported. Now after getting a vortech I find out that it only supports around a 10-20% lowest setting. Customer service ignored me for a couple emails about this. Of course every time I write them they say 'we're working on adding this!' Yet in the amount of time since, they've released the Dos, Dos container, Wav pump, and now the par monitoring kit. I think they added this just to say they "can" control ecotech stuff. Promptly dropping this crap on ebay and buying the reeflink. Tired of half-arsed support and only minimal functionality.
Great product, needs technical writer for Neptune. By Drew on 5/31/2015Drew would recommend this product to a friendTIP: Be sure to update to most recent firmware and then reset rado updating Apex firmware go mow lawn and restart everything when you get back, Your installation will go smooth.
Plenty of control. You gain stable reliable control by abandoning Ecosmart. You lose some refinements of the unstable interface of Eco"Smart". You loose easy access to acclimation periodization and % randomness of cloudy days. Cloudy days seems fluffy but is appealing feature and looks realistic. I am sure this will be included in time.
Must-Have for Vortech Owners By Jason on 4/15/2015Jason would recommend this product to a friendI use this module to control my Vortech MP-10's and absolutely love the ability to quickly and easily control the pumps. Very nice to be able to slow them down for feeding and take advantage of some of their default programs throughout the day and night. Setup could not have been easier. Highly recommended for all Vortech users.
Great Product By RDM on 2/20/2015RDM would recommend this product to a friendMakes wireless connection of Ecotech Radions and Vortech pumps to an Apex system pretty painless. Highly recommended.
Easy Set-Up - Customer Service By 4fishman on 2/5/20154fishman would recommend this product to a friendSet up was a breeze syncing my 2 vortech MP's. Shipment arrived and was obviously damaged. Called BRS and received the return shipping label by email. Received the replacement in about a week. Folks at BRS were very helpful.
Automation is cool By Cliff on 12/1/2014Cliff would recommend this product to a friendThe WXM is just one more great offering from Neptune. I've been using this for several months to control my Radions and Vortech pumps. The Radions initially had a little glitch, but after an Ecotech driver update, everything cleared up. This is one of several modules I own, and would recommend this to any reefer. All hail Neptune Systems!!
