    Hwi dmx...

    Hi all,

    I have a acquired a HW illumination system comprising of a series 4 processor, several GRX 3000 series, sivoia blinds and curtains and all the trimmings to boot.

    I am looking to add LEDs a DMX output to the system to recall scenes in a domestic application and as far as I can tell I have a few options.

    1/ source and add LUT-DMX
    2/ add cue server mini (which I have) and execute commands over IP
    3/ add cue server mini (which I have) and execute commands over RS232

    My questions are as follows,

    As a newbie to Lutron, Which would be the easiest to achieve the end result, 3rd party or LUT-DMX?

    None of them is going to be easy. In order of least difficulty:
    1 LUT-DMX
    2 RS232


    627 IP

    Getting HWI to control a 3rd party system with IP commands is going to be a challenge. The LUT-DMX is somewhat limited. Make sure it will do what you want before investing in one.

    Thanks for your reply!

    I will literally just want to send a simple dmx signal to a handful of fixtures/dmx drivers (led tape) functioning as architectural accents etc in my home.

    Does that sound like a mission worth undertaking?

    If you are doing the programming, I would say yes. If you are hiring a programmer, I would say no. You could wind up paying for 20+ hours of expensive programming.
