Controller for Satellite Plus
I have 2 Satellite Freshwater+ fixtures that provide excellent color for my panted tank. Based on what I could gather from the Current USA support team, the forthcoming Ramp Timer Pro will only control 2 channels and it doesn't sound like I will be able to schedule my lights to mimic the sun's cycle throughout the day and provide moonlighting at night before turning off and then starting the cycle over again the following day with the timer. My question is if I need a 4-channel controller and timer to create a schedule for the lights to ramp up at a set time each AM, display a midday lighting level, ramp down for sunset, and then switch to some blues for the moonlighting?
If this is the case, are there any recommendations for a controller that will allow me to schedule my lights in this way for these fixtures?
