With access to Apex Fusion being very easy, new users or old users, may not know how or forget how to access their classic web interface.




What is the Classic Dashboard?


It is a version of your Neptune Systems Control Dashboard that is only available locally within your home network. It's accessible only through your Apex's IP Address using any computer or tablet's web browser as long as your Apex is currently connected to your home network. 










There are two ways to access your Apex Classic Dashboard





Method #1: Using your Apex Display to get the IP Address

 

To find your Apex IP address you use the display module.

  1. Press the center button on your display module to access the Main Menu 
  2. Go to Main Menu> System> Net Setup> IP Address
  3. There is your IP Address
  4. Now you know the IP Address to access your Classic Dashboard anytime.



5. Open your web browser. Let's pretend your Apex IP address is 192.168.1.50. Type the IP address in the address bar at the top.





6) One last step before you're in the Apex Classic Dashboard. The web page will ask you for a username and password. (The default is 'admin' and '1234')

2) After downloading Apex Flash Utility you will need to extract it. Find the file, click the option, extract it.







3) The Extract window will need you to select 'Show extracted files when complete' then click on 'Extract' to finish  

 





4) Find the extracted folder and open the release_x folder. Then open the 'Apex Flash Utility' and this will open the update program. Before starting ensure that your Apex is securely plugged into the internet. 

 




5) Now that the program is open, click the 'Magnifying Glass' button to search for your Apex on the network.

6) You'll see it as Name, Network Address, HTTP Port. The Nework Address is the IP address of the Apex
