Neptune Adds Heartbeat Feature to the Apex Controller


Neptune Systems has added another new feature to it’s aquarium controller platform called the “Heartbeat”. ¬†If you have the Apex controller, then you will definitely want to add this feature through Apex Fusion.

Heartbeat works by sending a notification through the Fusion cloud and then to your device (usually a smartphone). The Fusion software then notifies through a text message, email or IOS alert you that there is a problem with your aquarium. ¬†Fusion won’t let the aquarist know what is wrong but the important thing is that it lets you know is that the aquarium may need attention right away.

In the video below, Apex’s Terence Fugazzi explains what Heartbeat does and how to setup this feature through the Fusion web server.
