BuildMyLED’s efficient LED striplights may be Apex Ready but that isn’t stopping BML from developing their own standalone controller. The Solunar is a simple light controller and timer which allows the dimming and timing of three channels of LEDs; you could use the Solunar controller for three different single-channel LED striplights or BuildMyLED’s forthcoming three-channel models.
The Solunar pictured here was first teased at ReefStock 2014, seen here running on some of BML’s multicolor LED striplights. The Solunar device is still in early beta testing, but you can see that the controller is equipped with a small LCD screen and simple navigation buttons. BuildMyLED expects to finish testing the Solunar within about thirty days at which point it will be released to the market in the ballpark of $149.
