Precision optical sensor specially engineered to connect to any HYDROS Sense Port. The HYDROS Aquarium Water Level Sensor is a HYDROS Sense Port accessory that provides an easy and accurate way to monitor fluid level that can be used for a variety of aquarium applications, such as sensing when your aquarium needs to be topped off or to detect when a dosing container needs a refill. Once properly integrated to your HYDROS Control aquarium controller platform, the HYDROS Aquarium Water Level Sensor is powered and controlled by your HYDROS Control aquarium controller. By downloading the FREE HYDROS app, you can control any HYDROS-connected device with your Internet-enabled computer, smartphone, or tablet!
The HYDROS Water Level Sensor contains no moving parts that can fail. It’s extremely tiny, measuring a little over a half-inch thick with a circumference the size of a US penny. The optical eye is magnetically coupled with the magnet side measuring only 1/4" thick. It can be mounted to most clear, tinted, or painted surfaces up to 1/2" thick. The sensor operates during the daytime or in complete darkness so it’s safe for use hidden inside your aquarium stand or in the back chambers of an all-in-one aquarium. The sensor is easy to place, easy to move, and easy to clean. When connected to a HYDROS Sense Port, your HYDROS Water Level Sensor is powered by your HYDROS Control aquarium controller and requires no additional cords or power bricks for operation.
HYDROS is engineered, assembled and supported at CoralVue headquarters in Slidell, Louisiana USA.
HYDROS Control aquarium controllers and other HYDROS accessories sold separately.
Please Note:The HYDROS app is required to use your Internet-connected smart mobile device as a controller. The HYDROS app is downloadable via the Google Play Store and iOS App Store.

HYDROS Aquarium Water Level Sensor Application Examples
You can use the HYDROS Water Level Sensor a multitude of different ways. For example, you could set one up as a high-level sensor and another as a low-level sensor as part of a dual-sensor automatic top-off (ATO) system. You could place these tiny optical sensors inside your dosing containers so you could be alerted when they need to be refilled. You can place a couple in an ATO reservoir: one can be set to "tell" your HYDROS Control aquarium controller to refill it and the other to prevent overflow. Keep equipment from running dry by setting your HYDROS Control aquarium controller to cut power to an outlet when the sensor is triggered. HYDROS Water Level Sensors are easy to place, easy to move, and easy to clean.
AutoAqua General Information
The HYDROS Water Level Sensor is an Official HYDROS Accessory manufactured by AutoAqua in Taiwan. As creators of the Smart ATO Micro, AutoAqua is one of the most well-known and trusted makers of aquarium automation systems in the hobby today. CoralVue has thoroughly tested the Water Level Sensor to ensure seamless compatibility with the HYDROS platform. The product development team at CoralVue engineered the sensor so it connects with any HYDROS Sense Port using its aviation-style plug for safe operation. No additional power source is needed to run the sensor.
Hydros aquarium controllers are the next generation of automated aquarium devices. Rather than relying on each individual device’s brain and programming capacity, the Hydros Control units have their own CPU and control capabilities. Hydros Control devices remove the problem of incompatible ports and need to continually add modules to expand your aquarium’s automation system. This new technology is called the Hydros Sense Port. The Sense Port is an entirely new concept in aquarium monitoring technology. A Sense Port is a generic input port that can accept data from numerous different types of sensors. Drive Ports provide 12-volt power for controlling ATO pumps, cooling fans, and other devices. Hydros is the future of automation!
