Lightbulb SNEAK PREVIEW: You want dimmer, timmer, 24/7cycle, & higher power functionality?

Finnex users- We heard all your voices: More Power than the RAY2! Incorporated Timer! Incorporated Dimmer! Sunrise to full power and Sunset to night! And much much more user capable customizability being incorporated as we speak. You want more? Be sure to ask!

Here's a visual of the two fixtures we've been cooking up for you guys for the past 3 months.

NO RELEASE DATE ATM!

Awesome, was curious if the dimmers would work for existing fixtures?

Is the dimmer able to be programmed to replicate light cycles on a timer, or are they not there just yet?

With both fixtures we are working out the kinks with an add on that allows users to controller their light intensity at any given preset time.

I'm sorry, it would be for the new generation of fixtures. That said, word on the street is that users have already found ways to dim the FugeRAY and Ray2. Though, we never promote tampering with our fixtures

Lowe, Any possibilities for color control (full on red, red/blue) modes?

Can't wait.

As long as these are available in various sizes with adjustable feet :P

Can we get the led incident angle a bit wider? Some with wide but shallow tanks appreciate it

What would also be a nice option - heavy duty power brick with multiple outlets to power multiple units on a single plug. Maybe offer them in 2/3 outlet sizing for those of us with tanks utilizing multiple units.

I think we all collectively got trolled here, I own 6 planted+ fixtures, 1 fugeray, 1 ray2, 1 monster ray, and 2 fugerayRs (gave one to bro).

Can't make these features available on a light controller/dimmer? So rough.

I'm waiting to see the price. If it competes with BML at a lower value then it will definitely draw a lot of interest. Currently I've found I would have to do a lot of managing of fixtures to get light exactly how I would want it.

I liked that all Finnex lamps were stackable.

Will the new ones continue with this awesome easter egg capability?
