Built-in Wi-Fi connection means you are up and running in a snap. No messing with long runs of ethernet cable or finicky Wi-Fi gateways. The cloud connection means your device is instantly accessible from anywhere, with no router configuration necessary.
Bluefish is the most versatile lighting controller on the market. It can output 0-10V, 0-5V, 5V PWM, and 10V PWM. Each channel is independently configurable. Voltage selection is made by hardware jumpers, and PWM on/off is an app setting.
Bluefish can directly control:
- Mean Well LDD Drivers for DIY LED setups
- All Mean Well Dimmable LED Drivers for DIY LED setups
- Kessil A360 Pendants
- Kessil A160 Pendants
- Nano Box LED Fixtures (all models)
- RapidLED Dimmable Onyx Fixtures
- Steve’s LEDs Retrofit kits
- Anything that accepts a 0-10V, 5V PWM, or 10V PWM signal!
*Please note that some features may be limited by your LED product or driver because of dimming limits or slow responsiveness. For DIY LED builds, we highly recommend Mean Well LDD drivers to get full functionality from your controller.
and paired with the Power Dimmer accessory, you can control:
- Ecoxotic Stunner LED strips
- Ecoxotic Panorama Pro LED modules
- Current USA TrueLumen LED strips
- Current USA Orbit Marine fixtures
Bluefish makes it easy to replicate the lighting conditions of any location, using actual weather data in real time! Just choose a city, and optionally use the current weather conditions (clouds, storms, etc), sunrise/sunset times (dynamic photo-period), and moon phase! Powered by Wunderground.com
Bluefish simulates unique cloud cover patterns using the current weather conditions from your simulated location. Unique weather conditions include clear, partly cloudy, mostly cloudy, scattered clouds, rain, haze, overcast, and thunderstorm.
Integrate the video feed from webcams directly into the app! Check up on your tank, make changes remotely, or just have fun showing off….start a thunderstorm and watch the action from anywhere!
Start a thunderstorm from the app and lighting strikes are synchronized with audio from a real thunderstorm. Connect your phone or tablet wireless to a Bluetooth speaker for maximum effect!
Wi-Fi configuration is extremely quick and easy. Select your network, enter the password, then hold the screen of your mobile device to the sensor on top of the Bluefish device. Your mobile device sends the configuration by flashing the screen (think Morse code). In about 10 seconds, your Bluefish controller is online and accessible from anywhere. Absolutely no router configuration necessary! Programming your light schedule and customizing your channels is a snap.
Bluefish was created with your security in mind. End-to-end SSL encryption protects your data from prying eyes, and your settings are stored securely in the cloud.
Not only is Bluefish an awesome lighting controller, it’s also the base for a complete aquarium controller. Add-on devices connect to the main unit through the BluePort connector. All accessible from anywhere through your mobile device!

Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Is it necessary to have my Apple/Android device connected at all times in order for the controller to run properly?
A. No, the app is required to change settings only. It is not necessary to be connected through the app for the controller to function.
Q. Can I use the app on multiple devices?
A. Yes. Your Bluefish controller settings are associated with your user account. You can log in from any Android/Apple device with your username and password.
Q. Can I mix lighting types? PWM and 0-10V?
A. Yes, each channel is independently configurable to be either 0-5V analog, 0-10V analog, 5V PWM, or 10V PWM.

Very cool love the effects that it makes the Kessil lights work better
only thing not happy about is the lightning effect isn’t great with kessils and software is a little quirky especially when going from one scene to another but overall very happy.
Cant waite for updates to software and new features

I purchased this product to control a pair of Kessil A360WE’s and I absolutely love it. It’s extremely easy to hook up and is able to be mounted anywhere. And connecting it to your home WiFi is a breeze. The Bluefish App is awesome in its design and ease of use. Amazing product and I would highly recommend it.

Nice unit, I have a Mini-Bluefish (replacing a StormX) running two DIY lights over two planted tanks, with the just purchased Bluefish running a BMLed light on a third tank. Both are set the same and sync almost perfectly. Plan is to scrap the BMLed light and replace with another DIY, run all three off the Mini, then move the Bluefish to a Kessill on my reef tank.
I use with Bluefish 2 app on a Samsung S9 droid, programming is relatively straight forward. Simulate Key West Florida which is same time as me. So far I’m happy, beats the previous brand I was using. Price point is slightly high, but “u get what u pay for”. Highly recommend if you build your own lights like I did.
