  1. We have some LED light strips next to the stairs, leading up to the second floor. I want to add them to my C4 system. According to the C4 installer, the current controller is not compatible with C4 ( I think it's American lighting), so he suggested to put in a DMX controller. Those things are not cheap, and I wonder if it's worth spending $800 for the dmx controller. He also mentioned I need a rs232-ethernet and led zone controller. Not sure why those are needed since the current LED controller is already in the media closet, close to the C4. Is this the best option or are there other solutions. I do plan to add more light strips in the near future.
  2. We are releasing a new solution for RGB LED Control with Control4. There is not so many good and affordable solutions of this kind right now, this driver may fill a gap many people wanted since a while. If you have tried other RGB LED Control solution for Control4 that are on the market right now, you may have find they may produce disappointing results, or other solutions may be better but for a price. The driver we are presenting if focussed mainly to work with RGB LED and use DMX as the standard lightning control protocol. It teams with a powerful interface that is the RS-232 DMX Engine from Engineering Solutions Inc. This little box have enough power to allow a complete management of RGB LED, Color effects, smooth fades, and more. Best of all, it does cost less than the other popular DMX solution for Control4. The driver fully support Advanced Lightning Agent scenes with perfectly synchronous activation with no external tool required to build a scene, it also feature a highly user friendly color effect management and native Control4 dimmer control to keep the experience similar the same as with Control4 own lightning system. Quick features list: - Native Control4 Dimmer Control - Full Advanced Lightning Agent support - Perfectly smooth scene activation with no popcorn effect - Smooth fades and color transition - Built-in Color Loop and Chase Effect - Effects are fully customizable - No CPU overhead - Support parallel tasking - Ultra fast response time - Exclusive Effect Switch for easy color effect creation - White override for RGBW Lightning The total cost of the driver and the interface is lower than the actual most popular DMX solution for Control4 and will produce better results, guarantee. Many people are already using it and they liked it. Check out this demo video of a basement with RGBW lightning, all controlled with Control4 and this driver: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VQsbtevZwSg The whole DMX Lightning control solution is sold on the Houselogix Marketplace: https://www.houselogix.com/shop/lighting Driver documentation: http://www.domaudeo.com/Control4/Drivers/DMX/Instructions.pdf Driver package download: http://www.domaudeo.com/Control4/Drivers/DMX/DMX_for_Control4_v1.2.zip For pricing information, go to Houselogix https://www.houselogix.com/shop/domaudeo or contact info@domaudeo.com Feel free to ask question on this forum, we will gladly try our best to answer.

    I am currently writing a driver for the Light-O-Rama system to integrate into Control4. I found this lighting system is highly affordable very robust, although primarily done for Christmas light, it was pretty easy to expand it's application to a regular light control system for low-voltage LED or 120V lights in a house. This system can also grow and control a very large amount of lights by daisy-chaining modules. The driver is based on our popular Advanced DMX solution currently available at Houselogix. The Light-O-Rama solution will offer similar features but the initial cost will be chopped by half. In fact, this will become the cheapest alternative to panelized lighting for Control4 ever available. For $109, you get a robust lighting control board that can control up to 24 circuits of low-voltage light or 8 sections of RGB lights, that mean a cost of about 5$ per channel with full dimming and smooth fades. Don't get me wrong, the Light-O-Rama integration into Control4 is not meant to be used as a light show system, it just bring LOR as a house lighting control system for regular lights with some RGB effect just like DMX, but for less $$ The driver is almost done and a beta will be released soon, I would need some people who actually own an LOR system and will like to use it as a light controller for their home. I have only a single board to work with so I can't test other LOR module or multiples unit daisy chained. I would also like some feature request if someone has idea... The goal is to bring the cheapest lighting control solution ever to Control4, that would expand C4 market to smaller home and budget-tight project.

    DMX with Multiple Universes

    hey y'all, i'm looking to expand my DMX infrastructure. yay. the strips i just ordered are RGB pixels, 5m at 34px/m, coming out to 510 channels. aka... it needs its own universe. that said, i'm primarily curious if the prominent dmx driver using the ESI box is capable of supporting this. i dont see any "universe" options on there, but i'm hoping there's a way to do it without buying another decabox. however, if i have to this is fine, just seeing if there's a way to do it without also, cc @jackstone since he wrote the driver, or may be interested in building this feature in.
  5. Our popular DMX integration solution for LED and Low voltage is available since a year now and we've been asking lot of feature requests and enhancements. I'm starting this new thread to focus on the driver features and not general LED installation and cabling. Our latest version 1.5.4 if mostly build to fulfil all the feature requests we had to date. New in 1.5.4: - DMX Group Dimmer for Single Channel Light - You liked the previous RGB Group Dimmer, but a single channel version was lacking. This Group Dimmer present a single dimmer to control multiple DMX Channels (range or random), it is very useful to group the White Channels in an RGBW setup or in commercial project where there is many lights on different channel but in the same room. - The ColorChanger driver is improved. This driver present a single dimmer slider that change the color of a group of RGB lights, it now support non-adjacent RGB channel and prevent problem when there is a white channel present after RGB. Also some bug fixed. Any ColorChanger user should upgrade to this version. - DMX Switch, a simple (but missing) driver to control non-dimmable lights or relays - Improved Effect Switch with Ranged Color Loop that now support lights with more than 3 channels. Also new Brightness setting that allow to dim the color effect. - DMX Effect Brightness, a complement to the new Effect Switch that allow live brightness changes of a currently running effect. Presented as a regular dimmer slider, your customer will be able to dim of bright the effect that is played in the room. Can also bind to a keypad. - Hardware Scene Management, allow to create hardware scene that can be saved into the DMX Engine hardware. Scene can be recalled through programming or automatically on boot (useful as disaster recovery). This is NOT THE SAME as Control4's own Scene agent, our driver still fully support scene creation through the Advanced Lightning Agent. We would like to remind this solution is not only for RGB LED but also for any low-voltage lights or whole-house all-white LED control. Here is the link to the original thread about this driver: http://www.c4forums.com/topic/14946-a-good-rgb-led-control-solution-for-control4-is-there/ Download link on Houselogix: https://www.houselogix.com/shop/advanced-dmx (all required hardware can also be purchased on Houselogix) ETA for the new IP DMX Engine: Expected in Q1 2016. Hope you're still happy to use our DMX solution and don't hesitate to tell us about your project for help and advice, also all feature requests is always welcome. Enjoy.
  6. I have a commercial customer that is using a S.T.I.C.K as DMX controller for his restaurant, we are planning to add C4 to manage audio and 120v lightning, is someone already used Nicolaudie product with C4? Is there a driver already done?
  7. You can use the latest release of our RGB LED Control solution to build nice color effects that can be triggered by music, check out the demo video: http://youtu.be/csieFCBaBco It's cheap and easy to do and require only Control4 hardware and the affordable ES DMX Interface. It's all explained in the documentation of the driver, check out this threat for more information or contact us at info@domaudeo.com http://www.c4forums.com/topic/14946-a-good-rgb-led-control-solution-for-control4-is-there/
