LED Fixtures

Are there any programmable fixtures that are affordable? Ill probably need 4 fixtures so can't do $500 a pop..

I'd like them to do sunrise and sunset... Ect

Id honestly look into taotronics 120w dimmable leds. Then buy a controller with decent lighting control

The taos? Yes. And most controllers have dimming capabilities. The apex can do it if i remember correctly. As can the reef angel

The controller has a built in surge protected outlet box. The controller can control the ligjts through the outlet by varying the signal intensity. Therefore giving you complete control of your lights through the controller. Its the setup im doing on my tank
