Hey folks,

For a long time I wanted to have my Radion XR30 Gen4 Pro set so that it would have the following behavior (controlled by Apex):
- run its normal day program most of the time, with a blue ramp-up in the morning and a ramp-down, ABS+ in the middle, with a peak intensity for 6 hours at 70%.
- if needed, have a way to instantly turn it to only red, for instance at night to look at what is going on
- likewise, turn it on to ABS+ 70%, for instance while cutting a coral "after hours"

I did not want to modify the code generated by the Apex Wizard.

So here is how I ended up doing that:
- first, use the wizard to create your normal template (by the way, if you do not know, the ABS+ is blues, violet, ultra-violet at 100, everything else at 24) and save it.
- then create profile(s), with the type "Radion" where you can set the individual color channels and overall intensity as you wish. (for me everything at 0 except for red at 100, and overall intensity set to 10%
- after that, go to the Radion programming, switch from Wizard to Basic View, and add lines linking the profile to a feed mode you do not use. For instance If Feed_D 000 Then Red. They are after the ones generated by the Wizard.

And done! You will not lose the regular programming, but you can have interesting modes that way.

As a reference, this is how my own Configuration ends up looking like:
