Disappointing By Derik on 7/30/2019Derik wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI bought the ICV6 exclusively to control my Gyre XF350 pumps - I found the advanced controller to be pretty weak sauce IMO. When the controller arrived, I was pretty disappointed that there was not a single piece of written documentation, no instruction, not even a "check out the following website". It is 100% up to you to figure out how to make the ICV6 work. I could live with that if it were simple to do. The ICV6 will ONLY WORK on a 2.4GHz Wifi network or via Bluetooth, that means you either have to have an older WiFi AP or know how to create a 2.4GHz network on a modern 5GHz AP. The 1st ICV6 I got was replaced by CoralVue, it would not connect via WiFi and debugging that was difficult because it doesn't log anything, it just says "failed to connect". The 2nd one would connect but, failed to connect to my Gyre advanced controller, I had to do a full reset on the Advanced Controller, apparently it is a known issue that once paired the Gyre retains the association with the old ICV6. After finally getting the Gyre connected to the 2nd controller, I was totally underwhelmed, it is marginally better than what the Advanced Controller provides and it is not cloud based so what's the point?
No problems By Allen on 2/25/2019Allen would recommend this product to a friendI didn't seem to have any problem connecting or using the ICV6 for my 24" Recurve. Once I figured out I have to turn off the VPN on my tablet to connect. However, I still can't figure out how to connect my Gyres. Anyone with a Recurve should spend the 50 bucks
Super easy to use. By Experienced Reefer/ on 11/8/2018Experienced Reefer/ would recommend this product to a friendI use these on my Gyres and it is super easy to use. Allows me to control my Gyres with my phone.
Soon will be hooking up my Dou pump to it.
Syna-G ICV6 great controller By maocdroid on 7/13/2018maocdroid would recommend this product to a friendvery easy to install and great performace.
Great Controller By William on 6/21/2018William would recommend this product to a friendI don't see the problems people were having with this, this controller took me no more than 20 minutes to set up and came with awesome programmed settings for my lights, My acans and favias color came to life when I turned on the controller. If you buy a razor x r5 light fixture I would recommend purchasing this also.
Love it By Stian on 4/25/2018Stian would recommend this product to a friendUsing it to control both my Recurve light and my two Gyres.
Had no issues at all with it, plug and play after i updated the firmware on my my Gyre's controller.
App works flawlessly By Scott on 3/19/2018Scott would recommend this product to a friendI am using the ICV6 for my new Razor X LEDs. Had no issues connecting to my home network and controlling my lights. Can’t wait for the updates to control the Maxspect Gyres and Duo pump!
Works great for $49 By Britt on 3/6/2018Britt would recommend this product to a friendTrue no directions come in the box. However Coralvue has a Youtube video that takes you step by step on how to set up. Here is the link. https://youtu.be/O0Q4S4jnV6g you will need to download the app SYNA-G work great on my iPad. Took a few minutes of playing around with the app to figure out how to tweak the program lighting the way I wanted it to be but not hard at all once I got the hang of it. All in all took me about 30-45 minutes start to finish. The app is pretty straight forward, 24 hour period, lighting intensity % and color hue. You have the easy set up and manual to choose from. I did the easy set up and then tweaked it the way I wanted it so now I have moon lighting after the sunset for a few hours.
Maxspect really missed the mark By Gonzo on 2/26/2018Gonzo wouldn't recommend this product to a friendThis unit came with my purchase of the Maxspect Ethereal lights. I was hoping I could integrate it with the Gyre pump, but you can't despite other documentation hinting as such. The app is absolutely horrid, it stores the light configuration on your phone, not the device. So if you know, use a different device to make changes, you don't have a starting point. I like the lights well enough, but the lack of integration with the Apex or really anything else, has me looking at the Radions or the Kessils.
So much potential, yet it promised support for pumps and Apex STILL aren't available By Joseph on 2/13/2018Joseph wouldn't recommend this product to a friendBought this box to integrate my Gyre Pumps and Ethereal lights. Finally figured out how to hook it up (instructions are part of the Maxspect App), and it does control my Ethereal lights via wifi. It does NOT support the Maxspect Gyre pumps, despite what you read elsewhere. Also, no Apex support! This has been (apparently) promised for over 18 months, yet nothing. So, 1-star until Maxspect finally releases support for these promised products. Can't recommend it otherwise, and I would probably avoid the Maxspect lights as a result.
waste of money By will not connect on 1/20/2018will not connect wouldn't recommend this product to a friendthere is no manual or videos on how to connect to the rsx. should be a simple setup but it cant find my device.
Set-up issue By GM on 1/18/2018GM would recommend this product to a friendNo manual, iOS app is not much of a help. Currently I'm connecting to ICV6 directly, it works fine once your connected. I wish connecting to my home network is not that hard.
Is this compatible yet with the gyre pumps?
The 200 series gyres are now able to work with the ICV6 controller. Have a great day!
I have just pourchased the Maxspect RAZOR X 200W LED FIXTURE and Maxspect Gyre XF250 Wavemaker Pump with Advanced Controller with a 2nd Maxspect Gyre XF250 Wavemaker Pump . Will this me control all 3 via the app on my android phone or ipad?
Rk I use for connection to these other devices.They connect with my apex controller.
The controller is to wirelessly connect to Maxspect lights and pumps directly from your phone, this does not allow for Apex controllability.
If I am reading this correctly, previous models of the Razor, like my less than one year old Razor R420, are not compatible with this controller. Is this correct?
Correct. The new controller is only compatible with the new Razor X models. Have a great day!
Is this controller capable of setting a custom flow which allows two XF350 gyres to alternate flow every 45 minutes like Ryan's 160 tank?
Yes it is capable of that. It can do all programming the regular controller can, this one is just wireless.
