I looked through the tutorials but could not find an answer. I have 1 Apex classic and 1 Apex jr currently and will add another Apex classic. I notice that when I get an alarm sent, it says Apex Alarm Fusion: Apex. I can't tell which one sent the alarm. At the apex list in Fusion the classic is listed as "Apex" and the Apex Jr as "apex". I want to change one to "120RR" Is this done in the classic dashboard by putting "120RR" into the hostname slot under Apex Ethernet Setup?

On each Apex, just change the Host Name under the Network Setup screen, then reboot the Apex. After that, every alarm notification will list the name you specified. Example:

Apex Fusion Alarm: SuncrestApex
Status: ON
Statement: Output Alert_ATK_HI is on
Date: 2020-12-03 11:56:01 -0800

It will also help you identify each Apex in the Fusion list:
