Smart-Temp Probe

Vertex is revolutionizing the probe industry, with their Smart-Temp probe. The probe is built from the highest quality parts that Vertex could source allowing the probe to last a long time giving stable and reliable readings. The probe had built-in LED status indicators that will let you know when the temperature is normal or out of range.

Blinking Red - Out of Range

Solid Green - Within Range


Android OS

Vertex undertook the challenge of making an aquarium controller on an open source platform. The Android based operating system lets you fully customize your controller for your needs without having to learn any coding, or proprietary software. If you have a smart phone today, you will know how to use the Cerebra. You can now have an internet browser, streaming videos, and instructional manuals right on your controller. If you need to convert alkalinity readings from PPM to DKH, you can book mark your favorite conversion chart, or if you are looking for a new skimmer, you can watch and read product reviews directly from the Cerebra. With an open source controller it is just a matter of time before many useful apps come to the market, making reef keeping fun and easy.
