Edited December 3, 2011 by Harpo Thanks im glad i could provide some helpful feedback. This is the first time someone has enquired regarding the accuracy of our light meter. In times when everyone is looking forward for new cool gadgets, Seneye is a temptation hard to pass. It can give an oxygen potential based on the registered conditions and temperature. Water Level Readings are only taken when the seneye device is in water, no false readings.
Registering the device and initially setting up was — for me — arduous at best, with a few gaps of explanation that really caught me out. Kelvin Understand where on the kelvin range your lights are and how light can change over time. The first 1st-hand review I read of Seneye was yours. We would suggest you use a slide that when you; add more fish, go on holiday, keep high value stock or are changing your aquarium system. Continuous Monitoring The easy to install seneye provides automatic monitoring of light levels, temperature, pH, and free ammonia in all types of home aquarium.
This performs the task of uploading data to the seneye servers from your device. The device is called Seneye and it arrived in my mail from the other side of the ocean- the United Kingdom. The fact that the company has plans to add additional functionality got me really excited. The light meter is a real gem. Ever experience new tank syndrome and wished there was a way of knowing when the water is safe for your fish? Monitoring water quality is, without doubt, a key to healthy, flourishing reef aquarium. This is the only aspect of seneye that is not Mac compatible. The idea behind this product is that it features disposable microchip cards called Slides.
When connected to the Power Adaptor readings are stored every hour and flashing lights on the device indicate if there is a problem. To properly measure those three parameters, the sensor has to be mounted parallel to the light source, which means that if you need constant light measuring, you need to mount the device on the bottom of your tank or on a frag rack the suction cup included in Seneye can be attached on either side of the unit. Or what it will be capable of with future upgrades? This thing alone separates Seneye from other monitoring devices on the market. This way, Seneye is a real fish saver, as opposed to a forensic examiner, post-wipeout. Ever experience new tank syndrome and wished there was a way of knowing when the water is safe for your fish? The results are relayed to the customer's computer and uploaded to their on-line web space. Nurture the environment in your home aquarium to a lush and healthy state with the Seneye Home aquarium monitor.
Wireless Connectivity The Seneye Web Server with Wi-Fi wirelessly connects the monitoring system to your modem or router and automatically uploads recordings of critical parameters to the seneye cloud. Oh, and a little update. Been running this on my reef tank for 5 months now. The all-new Seneye is certainly revolutionary, although not without its glitches. Why not take out a subscription to Practical Fishkeeping magazine? Eventually it will read parameters like chlorine, nitrite, nitrate and hardness — although these capabilities are still in the pipeline.
Next step is registration on website. As a reef keeper in general, can you detail the realization if any that you had with understanding what this unit is capable of? If you type in your e-mail address and mobile phone number, you also activate e-mail and text message alert functions more on that later. Are the strips sent to you at once or do they come monthly? Plus the monthly service fee is a downer for me. Fish death is often the result of the devastating effects of ammonia levels in the tank water. Protect your fish with a seneye monitor. Which i guess is ok since the device is still in beta Hopefully the developers take in all the feedback and improve on what should be a really awesome addition to any aquarium.
This revolutionary water monitoring device allows you to continuously track the changes in the water parameters, alerting you to the problems before they affect the fish. The biggest innovation in aquatics has arrived. Been running this on my reef tank for 5 months now. I have seen many of the major publicational reviews, but yours was the first user review. My initial impression, having used the unit, is that I adore the hardware, but find myself seething at the installation and intuitiveness of the software. The whole registration process takes less than five minutes and after couple of minutes I received an e-mail and text message saying my account has been activated. Want to join the AquaNerd Team?

Like i said in my review this device has a long way to go before i can give it the Gold star but it definitely seems like the developers are on the right track. I was not looking for 100% accuracy just a ballpark. Automatic monitoring with a seneye Home can save fish from the devastating effects of ammonia poisoning, as well as from harmful swings in pH and temperature. On the back there is a light sensor and a little socket intended to put new slides in. After a couple of emails and no Hassel they replaced the unit. To be able to test pH and ammonia, there has to be a registered slide inside Seneye.
Want to see how the temperature has fluctuated over the afternoon? All 3 are shipped at once. It fixes to the side of the aquarium with a suction cup, and for measuring light it can be manually turned on its side for taking measurements at various depths. My final thoughts are: Seneye is a cool new gadget for the aquarium industry. This interface is fully Mac compatible, as is the Seneye. It took a long time to get a response but this is a cut and paste of their response to me.
