AquaticLog Apex Integration Instructions

You have an AquaticLog account but also happen to own a Neptune Apex hooked up to your aquarium.

To setup Apex you need to have it accessible from the internet (likely you will need to configure your router to allow access to your Apex). If you are already controlling your controller via an iPhone or Android Neptune app means that you can access your controller.

Next, you will need to allow a view-only access to your Apex without a username and password. Make sure you are using the latest Apex software (4.2), login to your Apex dashboard and access Configuration -> Network Setup.

Now that your Apex is configured, let’s connect Apex and AquaticLog.

Go to your Measurements page and click on “Setup Apex” button, this should take you to an Apex Configuration page.

Your hostname will be either an IP address (if your IP starts with 192 or 10 it is an IP address that is internal to your home network and can’t be accessed from the outside world).

You will also need to know your port, values 80, 8080, 8000 are all commonly used.

You don’t need to specify any probe names unless you are using multiple probes of the same type.

You have an option of fetching measurements daily or once a week. You also have an option of specifying a time of day that you want measurements to be taken.
