DrWizard Posted March 5, 2019 Share Posted March 5, 2019 I had an idea for a security feature that could be exclusive to Light-O-Rama thanks to your more sophisticated communications protocol. Have 'Control Panel' "ping" all the known controllers every few seconds, and raise an alarm if one of them fails to respond, due to failure, [accidental] disconnect, blown fuse or ground fault, or even being stolen. The alarm function could be turned on and off from Control Panel when you are working on the hardware, and when on, if one of the controllers on it's list doesn't respond in a timely manner, it could play a sound file (configurable), pop up a big blinky message box on the screen, and/or send an email and/or text. It could also work with E.131 controllers (any brand) but it wouldn't work with generic DMX controllers (your competition(?)) due to their one-way communications.
