The open source Reef Angel controller has only been on the scene for a few months now yet it is blazing a trail which other controllers will notice. The flexible controller platform upon which the Reef Angel is built has made it possible for team Reef Angel to crank out the first wireless 802.11 b/g module so you can get your angel net connected without the wires. As you can see from the video above the Reef Angel WIFI module is still in prototype but it’s somewhat of a surprise that the Reef Angel, the youngest aquarium controller on the block, is also on track to become the first to offer wireless web connection. Although we understand that GHL, Neptune and Digital Aquatics have forgone the WIFI in favor of more robust physical ethernet connection, nowadays wireless networks are fairly reliable and we really look forward to having the Reef Angel further the development of this wireless module. Furthermore, if you needed any more proof that Roberto and the Reef Angel Dev Team are thinking ahead, the web development is coded entirely in AJAX, a democratic coding language which is independent of browser or platform, bless their Mac and Linux loving hearts. The Reef Angel aquarium controller project is still looking for early adopters to give feedback and right now you can get a completed, cased Reef Angel controller with controllable power box for $200.
