So I just stumbled on the fact that the Apex Fusion skill has been released for Alexa, by Neptune systems (integrated with Fusion). Here is the Neptune user manual for Alexa that I just glanced at. https://forum.neptunesystems.com/showthread.php?24464-Amazon-Alexa-Integration-with-APEX-Fusion-FAQ Wonderful new techno toy!! Or is it? I am weary, and until I fully understand things there is NO WAY Alexa is going to have access to my Apex Controller running my tank. So hoping this thread generates some knowledge sharing, experiences, to make things better for everyone. I am an electronic/computer engineer, and I love technology. ....in case some onequestions my knowledge of automation, integration and control, here are a few examples of my Fish Tank/Home-Automation related projects. Recently I re-did my Sump Room (dual tank) with Dual Apex Automation and more I've built a few Custom projects for my Setup. DIY ATO (Ardiuno) DIY DOSER / Water Changer (Ardiuno) Other automation projects plenty of Home Automation Projects using a variety of Hubs (Samsung, WINK, Philips Home lighting) and ALEXA. Each project required extensive planning, knowledge of action/reaction, fault logic, and reliability. (BULLET PROOFING) What I have learned is automation isn't always reliable, and Alexa is even less reliable, so the two together multiple the failure/error rates. LET ME GET BACK TO APEX......(and Alexa) My Apex Classic/Jr has also been used in advanced ways, since I've taken advantage of Virtual Outlets, Logic, and Latches, and even integration with my Doser/Water change Controller. Here are some questions I have: How well designed is Apex with Alexa? NOT.... how easy it is to setup (since that could be dangerous). Are there controls in place to NOT enable any part of your Apex Control logic for Doser, ATO? User Control Logic? Who can do what? What about reliability, response time? Internet availability? Wifi Avilability? (my 3 kids on home Network, running videos, games can bring my Internet/Intranet Speed to a crawl) How can you protect your tank, from children, or YouTube Video's playing that may trigger Alexa? I have a spare APEX, and will do some exploring..... ... so hope some of you can SHARE your experiences, questions, concerns, challenges and knowledge/solutions.
