In this Get Started Guide we will go over how to be added as an additional user to an existing Apex connected to Apex Fusion.  The applications of this could be a service company monitoring your system, a friend watching your tank while you are out of town, or even allowing another user to help you with setting up and configuring your Apex.  You don't need an Apex System to have an Apex Fusion account, just follow the steps below to get started.
