Those of you that own or are familiar with the Ecotech Marine Radion LED fixtures are most likely aware of or own the Ecotech Reef Link wireless controller.  Until recently the Reef Link was only able to control the Radion LED fixtures but now it also has Vortech control.  The pumps themselves have had wireless functionality for many years and Aquarium Specialty was the company that had the honor of being the sole distributor of the 1st several hundred wireless upgrades to be sold in the US market several years ago.

The Vortech wireless pumps were limited to pump-to-pump communication so as to create synchronized and anti-sync wave patterns. Now with the addition of the Reef Link Vortech firmware update aquarists hobbyists can sync their pumps to their Radion LED lighting schedule and control everything wirelessly from a smart phone, computer, or tablet.

EcoTech Marine’s latest updates to their EcoSmart Live software now includes settings for the VorTechs, allowing hobbyists to control their pumps via the internet and mobile devices. The software has all of the native wave modes of the EcoSmart controllers, but adds to that with greater precision of control, as well as a few other nice touches that will probably result in you never actually touching the physical control hardware ever again.

In the video above, EcoTech Marine quickly steps us through the updates. It’s not as in-depth as we’d like but we expect Ecotech to role out more in-depth videos in the near future.  For more on the Ecotech Reef Link please visit this link.
