Aleera templates and Apex compatibility

Our Aleera ID9 templates are compatible with Integration Designer Apex. The software will convert them to .apex format, and automatically create a new file with the same file name in the same directory, but with an Apex icon instead of ID. Simply close the Apex editor software and you are done. When you set up a new room / processor / controller in Apex, you can now use the merge pages feature to look in the newly created Apex version of the templates to import any pages you like, which works exactly like the built in Page Wizard.


To open ID9 files in Apex, click File / Open, and go to the folder that contains the ID9 template project file. You will se a drop down box on the lower right corner. Simply change the search format to "All Files" and the ID9 version will appear so you can double click on it, or highlight the file and select "OK".  


The Aleera pre-programmed add-ons contain programming and processor information from ID9, so if you open those files in Apex, all of the graphics will appear, but the programming & feedback will be removed from the buttons.

As Apex becomes more mainstream, we will be converting the pre-programmed add-ons to work directly with Apex as well.

Introducing Aleera for RTI Integration Designer and Apex. Our goal was to revolutionize and simplify the residential and commercial user experience by designing an entirely new graphic library that can be used to create stunning user interfaces while maintaining a very contemporary look and feel. We decided a "flat" interface does not have to be boring, so we improved many aspects of the design over time, including our new transparent PhotoView UI, which allows you to easily theme your designs with custom photos & wallpapers.

We looked for solutions to simple issues, such as being able to view white 2D icons in an external folder or in the image library. We decided to give every icon a semi transparent drop shadow that allows the images to be easily viewed when browsing, but it also gives them the illusion of floating above the the rest of the user interface. We spent the last few months testing and refining the smallest details of Aleera to get it ready for prime time. During our testing phase we also took the opportunity to update our activity, room, and preset channel collections with the most recent products and station additions. Thank you for visiting, and please feel free to contact us with questions you may have.

Click the icon on the left to download our new Microsoft Word Tips & Tricks file. You can easily browse our external image folders and use them to customize our templates by changing a single setting in the Options tab of RTI Integration Designer. All of our external images are formatted using the RTI naming scheme, so changing a two state button or background is a simple matter of dragging them into your pages from the Bitmaps tab in ID.
