Power strip / timer recommendations

Recommended Posts

So I have been looking to change up the time on my lights a little bit. Right now I have the coralife 8 outlet power strip where you can do do 2 outlets on / off. Does anyone know of any other good ones where you can program outlets individually? Not really looking to get an apex or controller if I don’t have to, it’s a little more wires than I need but I am looking to be able to control 3 outlets on separate times.

Individual wall timers is what I have always used

This is the most reliable timer I've come across:

But there's also wifi timers like this one you can program with your cell phone:

I used the one Timfish recommended on my old tank before apex . I now use 4 of them for our christmas stuff.

Coralife Power Center was all that I used to control my aquarium until I started CO2. It's not very expensive and controls 8 plugs. One thing that I liked about it was that the batteries kept the settings after a power outage. I've also used the one Timfish recommended and it works well as long as you don't lose the start/stop pins. I eventually replaced it with a $15 digital timer that controls two plugs.
