Reef Factory Power Switcher



The newly released Reef Factory Power Switcher is a small, intelligent aquarium socket to which you can connect any device. Thanks to the Power Switcher, you can now program each device in a cyclic switching on and off mode. The Power Switcher also allows you turn the device on or off remotely directly from the SmartReef free downloadable app.

Programming, delaying and remote management of connected devices

The smart socket will allow you to manage lamps, pumps and any other electrical devices. The Power Switcher also has a restart delay function, which can be useful when working with a connected skimmer for example. In the event of a power failure the delay function will turn the device back on but with a pre-set delay, preventing the skimmer from overflowing, preventing collected skimmate from getting into your aquarium.

The list of devices that should be connected to your aquarium with a Power Switcher is quite extensive and Reef Factory expects the device’s capabilities to grow with each software update. Thanks to the Action section you can integrate the switcher connected via the Power Switch with another device.

Power Switcher Actions will also work with the Kh Keeper family, however, Reef Factory is developing and further testing actions to work with other Reef Factory devices in the near future.

Reef Factory is a fairly well know aquarium products manufacturer in Europe and other parts of the world and we hope to see them in the United States at some point. After searching for pricing online we see that it appears to have a price tag of 29 Euros across the pond.
