Possibly reverse engineering the Orphek Atlantik - What's the correct way to provide input to the Apex programmatically?

I really really really like the Orphek Atlantik V4 gen2's... however their lack of integration with the Apex makes it a no go for me currently.

As the title says, what's the current accepted method to input data to the Apex as I understand there is no real exposed API... *angry face*

I agree it would be nice to have full support, but having gone through the various options (Kessil, Ecoteck, T5's), the Atlantik is the only one I'm completely happy with. I don't change my lighting schedule very often, so I'm OK without the Apex support. It would be nice if Orphek had a nicer App, since theirs isn't great, but it gets the job done.
