    Zilla Power Center?

    So, I was looking for something that would make it easier for me to control all three of the lights that I could use later on when Ryuu's tank is bigger and will need an under tank heater or a heat emitter. Problem is, the instructions are horrible and I cannot figure out how to set the thing.

    Does anyone else have a digital power center? If so, can you give me some tips on how to set it? I feel stupid for having to ask, but for a day and a half I have been fighting with it to try and figure out how it should be set.

    Otherwise, could someone help me to find another power center that would actually work and have decent instructions?

    Sorry I can't help you with the Zilla Katie. Ugh, everything is so complicated these days, either that, or I'm just getting too old. LOL

    I just bought some basic plug-in timers from Ikea, they were about $6 for a pack of two. Basic works for me.

    I was trying to do that, but didn't like having so many timers under the table.

    Are all three tanks on the same time schedule?

    I have two tanks that need to be on a similar schedule, just with different needs. And one tank with just a single light. :-/ I would just be so nice for them all to be on the same strip that would support each light with a specific time and quit taking up so much space in the corner.

    I just found the instructions for it on PDF.
    I'm just about to put the little one to bed, but if you are going to be on FB later, I'll happily brainstorm it with you.

    I just read through the instructions. If I'm reading them correctly, it doesn't control lights for multiple tanks at different times, just multiple tanks for day and night lights at the same times.

    When the yellow sockets are on the blueish gray ones are off and vise verse. They are on a day and night cycle. You can not time each one to a different time. For example if you had say your uvb or halogen plugged into the yellow sockets and wanted to set them for different times it's not going to work they will come on and go off at the same time and when they go off whatever you set up in the other two colored sockets will come on. When there is power to the yellow the power is off to the blues. Tell you the truth I was pretty mad at first but I just went down to home depot and bought some cheap timers and another power strip.

    Let me know exactly what your trying to do and maybe I can let you know if you zilla power center will work for the application.

    I'll go up and read more just in case you already said what your trying to do lol.

    You've just confirmed what I thought. Pretty expensive on/off switch huh?
