Hello all, any help would be appreciated. I recently bought a Kessil to Neptune Apex control cable. I want to use it to automate my lights but when I plug it in the light turns off and stays off and I can’t get it to turn on no matter what. Is the cable supposed to be plugged into output or input on the light? Maybe I’m not programming correctly in the apex program?

I have the a160we light
That one can be controlled by the Apex with the cable. It's the newer ones (360x) that are not supported, at least at the moment.

Hope the video helped you but here are a few pictures of mine. You need to set the outlets and profiles. I have 3 outlets (Power, Color, Intensity) and the number of profiles you want for ramp up/down. I had a lot initially but cut them to 3 for Color and 3 for Intensity.

My problem was I was plugging the cable into the Ethernet port . Now I have to buy the Neptune apex VDM LED & pumps control module. Oh well 1 step closer to getting it done
