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 firmware, run the program by double clicking it. 




3) The Mac Apex app will open. Click on 'Search for Controllers'




4) If your Apex is properly connected to the home network you'll see it appear on the list under 'Name'



5) Place a check mark next to Apex listed and press OK.
6) You'll see it as Name, Host, Port. The Host is the IP address
7) Now click the Browse button at the top left to open it in your web browser.
