The HYDROS Magnet Mount Temperature Sensor is an easy and affordable way to prevent your aquarium water from becoming too cold or too hot. It monitors the water temperature in your aquarium so you can keep it within the safe zone for fish, coral, and inverts. The sensor plugs into any Sense Port on a HYDROS device (like the Control 2 or Control 4) and does not require any additional power source.
The way it works is easy: just place the sensor inside your aquarium or sump. It can be mounted to surfaces up to ½” thick. There is a magnetic coupling that will sit outside your tank or sump to keep the sensor securely in place. You can configure the HYDROS app so that if the water temperature is higher than 82°F or lower than 78°F (for example), it can send you a mobile alert to let you know. You can also set it up so that outlets that have a heater, chiller, or fan plugged into them turn off when the temperature is outside the safe zone. Your heating and cooling equipment must be plugged into a HYDROS power source, like the Power 4 power strip or Smart Plug, for this sort of automation to occur.
The HYDROS Temperature Sensor contains no moving parts that can fail. It’s extremely tiny: it’s a little over a half-inch thick with a circumference the size of a US penny. The magnet side measures only ¼” thick. The sensor is easy to place, easy to move, and easy to clean. It provides peace of mind that your aquarium water temperature will never drift outside optimal ranges for aquatic life.

For freshwater and saltwater aquariums
The HYDROS Temperature Sensor uses a GX12 aviation-style connector so the Control 2 and Control 4 maintain their IP65-rating (dust-tight and protected from water spray at any angle).
Powered, monitored, and controlled by plugging into a Sense Port on the HYDROS Control 2 or Control 4. No additional power cord is required.
