Commercial vs. Residential Controllers????

Recommended Posts

As a homeowner, is it necessary to use all commercial Showtime controllers? As a newbyie this year, I started with with 2 of the Showtime 1602 controllers. As I add more, will the residential controllers be enough? Running all LED's, at 7500 lights now, adding a 14' mega tree and more arches next year. Just trying to save a little money on not having to purchase the commercial Showtime controllers. Thanks for any advice.

I wouldn't have bought the commercial ones in the first place since the residential will do just fine. :) Both control lights the EXACT same way (a common misunderstanding). Both can be run off either a computer or a director/mini-director. Save the money so you can buy more controllers now or later. Best advise I ever got as a newbie several years ago. And yes both types "play" well with each other.
