Great Controller By David on 1/17/2018David would recommend this product to a friendThis is a great controller for Kessil’s A-series lights. I originally contemplated between this or using Apex’s VDM. I ultimately decided on this controller because of the issues being experienced with other Apex products. This controller is definitely worth the purchase. It has an easy to use interface, and once you set up your program you won’t need to touch it again. It took me about 10 minutes from opening the box to having a lighting schedule set to my specific needs and routing the wires neatly where I wanted them. The only negative I can think of is that one of the cables provided is pretty short so it will need to be mounted close to the light. Otherwise, great controller that works better than I expected.
Works as expected By Brady on 1/15/2018Brady would recommend this product to a friendThe interface is starting to look outdated, but it's a nice controller. The rave reviews of these lights are all legit.
Must have By Khai on 10/27/2017Khai would recommend this product to a friendVery easy to use, must have for Kessil owners.
Must have if you don't have an Apex By Steve on 6/20/2017Steve would recommend this product to a friendReally good controller for lights, and a must have if you don't have an Apex. I use this for my A160WE and it works like a charm. Took me 5 minutes to learn how to use it. It's simple and effective.
Excellent Controller By Reeflover on 4/27/2017Reeflover would recommend this product to a friendI give it a 5 but...... Please be advised when setting up your light schedule that it MUST run on Military Time! If you try to run regular time ( 1:00 ) @ 1:00 instead of 13:00 hrs you will be lost & it's not in the instructions to leave on Military time! Other than that it's awesome & works like a charm!
excellent controller By choss on 2/20/2017choss would recommend this product to a friendEasy to program, it comes with a nice acclimation mode feature that I often use when introducing new corals. I'm able to control 2 lights independently. Only feature I would like to see improve is that the controller only allows 5% increases in power. I would have liked smaller % increases
Easy to use, low cost controller. By Zachary on 11/14/2016Zachary would recommend this product to a friendIf you're like me and you don't want an apex controller, the kessil controller is for you. Its super easy to program, and the acclimation mode makes it even better so you don't have to worry about frying your corals. Definite must for anyone with Kessil lights.
Very satisfied By Emelito on 11/4/2016Emelito would recommend this product to a friendHappy and content for buying this product simple and efficient.
Worth every penny By Lance on 8/18/2016Lance wouldn't recommend this product to a friendThis controller is exactly what I needed. It took an hour or so to learn how to program it. With a little help from online videos I was using it like a pro in no time.

Kessil light controller By juschillin2 on 3/3/2016juschillin2 would recommend this product to a friendWonderful addition to the light system. Never have to touch it! Well worth the cost. Did take me a while to understand and get the hang of it, but once there...it's a breeze.

I'm getting A350 tuna blues, will this work for them?
What if i have more than 2 lights? Do i need multiple controllers?
Can this work on the H80 refugium light with my tuna blues?
You would need the H-series Spectral Controller to control the H80. https://www.bulkreefsupply.com/h-series-spectral-controller-kessil.html
Is the compatible with two a80s?
Do the lights ramp up and ramp down between all settings that have been programmed? Or do they immediately jump from one setting to another setting when the time is reached for the next set point?
Is it compatible with the Kessil H80??
I'd rather not buy both
Our information from Kessil states that the H-series lights are only compatible with the H-series controllers, and the same with A-series lights and controllers.
Is this Wifi enabled? Can I control it from an app?
Unfortunately, the A-Series controller does not have wi-fi capability. Have a great day!
Can these be used to control the Kessil A150's?
The A150 series of lights are not controllable by an external controller. The Spectral Controller is intended to be used with the A160 or A360 series of lights.
