The new IKS AquaView touch external display is a pretty piece of machinery for the IKS AquaStar and PondPilot controllers from the German company. The sleek looking black screen pops to life when needed and can be manipulated with virtual RGB sliders to get the exact background as you’d like. The German company looks to have a pretty solid controller and since they do also target the pool and pond markets, IKS may not be on many hobbyists radar.
The polished front glass has the look of a high-quality tablet and without too much supporting information, appears to allow for full access to the AquaStar controller to monitor and control lighting, parameters and other equipment. There is even an optional Bluetooth interface to allow you to control your system from up to 100m away. The AquaView is going to retail for €399.99 (around $537 USD).
