    Hello, I have a an Apex controller and just added the windows 7 gadget for it from Kenargo.

    My question is:

    How do you setup the Kenargo Relay Proxy, so I can tap into my unit from work? Any help would be great! Thanx in advance!

    Vic

    neptune systems updated/rewrote their "Apex" app for the iphone for faster graphs and finally it allows you to configure outlets..
    but it does require a firmware update of the base unit.

    Someone needs to do the same thing for Android ! I updated the iPad app quite a while back but can't find anything decent for my Droid. The one that I have (don't remember the app's name) won't even let me scroll thru the list of outlets --- it just err's out with a 'force closure' required

    I've had soooooo many questions about the Apex Controllers! I'm still debating on whether or not I should get the Apex
