THIRD-PARTY LICENSED NINTENDO WII CONTROLLERS

There are many "knock off" Wii controllers on the market. Some work with Zen, and some don't. As there are so many different serial numbers and brand names, it's definitely a potluck if it will work or not. Let us know if you have a third-party Wii controller that works, and we'll add it to this page 👍

WIIMOTE USB SENSOR BAR

Yes, you can use a Wii USB Sensor bar with a Wiimote Plus and Cronus Zen! Simply connect it to any USB power source and place it in optimal sight of your gaming area.

It works as a reference point for the Wiimote Plus, which has a camera on the front that is looking for the Infra-Red lights on the Sensor Bar, that is how it determines the Wiimote's location.

If you need one, we do sell them 🛒 in the Cronus store
