    APEX Experts - Pairing Ecotech MP pumps to APEX

    So far APEX has been awesome but pairing the Ecotech MP pumps have been challenging. I have created a ticket with the neptune support but they work M-F - was wondering if someone here can help out on Marsh

    I have done a full factory reset for MPs - based on the neptune link below:
    https://www.neptunesystems.com/getstarted/wxm/vortech/

    My problem is in the output module. I don't see anything that says "Vortech" in the selection which tells me that the WXM and MP is not communicating. Attached is a list of the given outputs on my APEX

    Addition info:
    All my APEX firmware up to date for AOS/WXM/EB832. APEX IP/HOME IP address is also okay.

    Have you tried cycling power to the WXM?

    Go to the main home screen. Click on the lock symbol in the top right of the page. Scroll right until you see your added Ecotech pump. Drag it down into the fusion screen. Then you can edit the pump from there.

    APEX Experts - Pairing Ecotech MP pumps to APEX

    I don't see ecotech pump in the selection anywhere

    In your second screen shot-what variable pump is that?

    Hmmm, never paired then. Once you pair doing those button pushes in the Neptune instructions, it should say you have "new tiles" and you'll see the Ecotech pumps then.

    Are you seeing the same button flashes as the instructions state?

    Yes MP pumps flashes all the correct colors. Super easy and straight forward.

    Did you upgrade the WXM module firmware using the classic Apex interface (the one where you type in the IP address into the browser)?
