I really like the AI Director

This enables me to control my AI SOl's (with wireless adapters) from my computer, and even better, from my smart phone. The software is very well designed and it's simple to use. I can control all the colors independently. You can setup groups of lights. You can ramp the lights up\down over time. You can set them to acclimate new corals. It's a great controller. The only thing I didn't care for was the moonlight function. Even at the lowest setting they were too bright for my liking.

Great Little Program

I had been using the new controller, but decided to try the Director with my new Hydra 26 led's. This is a really nice streamlined program that's easy to use. All of the early bugs seem to be worked out. Mine has been working flawlessly for several weeks. I do have it hardwired to my router and sitting about 5-7 feet from my lights. I haven't tried setting it up wireless to my router since it's in the same room as my tank. I like the ability to adjust the intensity of all 7 channels, and it's very simple to do. I haven't used the iPhone app yet, but it's there if I need it. Having the ability to make adjustments anywhere I am is a huge plus. I'm glad I waited to get it. I haven't had the issues early buyers and the beta folks were having. Let the bugs get worked out and then make the plunge.

AI Director

I've had the director for almost 2 weeks and compared to the original AI controller, this makes programming AI lights a breeze, you literally can have the director and lights up and running in about 5 minutes which includes unpacking time. The other thing I realy like, compared to other reef controllers, AI made getting this thing online simple, you don't have to know complicated networking skills to get this thing connected to the internet. If you know how to connect a device to wifi and how to login into a web page, you'll no problem setting this thing up. I have it connected directly into my router through ethernet which made setting it up even easier. The only con I have found so far is the fact that there is no easy way to turn your lights off if needed, you have to go into manual mode and ramp down each channel to zero if you want to turn your lights off outside of the programmed schedule. I spoke to AI about this and they said others have mentioned this and manual off will be available in a future firmware update.

Unstable

Very unstable. Be prepared to spent countless hours debugging with AI helpline.

Works Excellent!!!

Used this with the AI Wireless Adapter, purchased at the same time. My setup is on 6 SOL Blue AI lamps. Easy install, but I called AI first, they walked me through the hook up via Ethernet, I did not want it going via wireless to the director. It took a total of 5 minutes to set it up, and worked flawlessly. Now, if I had the newer versions of the lamps, it would give me even better control, but it allows me (or you on your tank) to control the lamps via a computer, ipad, iphone, etc. The iphone app is not the same as the one for a laptop, and it is wanting for function, but you can make some adjustments, but not the same as off your computer.

I'm I missing something?

I'm very disappointed with this product. I thought I had it setup correctly. I programmed the times and light intensity and effects on my laptop. My lights will show as programmed sometimes and never the next day. If I'm doing something wrong I wouldn't know because they give horrific directions.
