Apex Jr aquarium controller

The following script was created and works with hub v2. I’m not sure if it makes a difference but I have a v1 hub and when running this, it never gets past the connecting part. I can manually login and retrieve the information. Can anyone see a problem with the way this is written. The guy who wrote this only has access to v2 hub and though he has spent a lot of time trying to help we’ve had no success. (I can understand what this does but have no programming experience) Thanks
