Do you need to manage the lights in a venue but also need the freedom to walk around to attend to other duties? This device is very popular with club/restaurant owners and event planners who want to be able to change the lighting atmosphere and colors by just pressing a hotkey on their phone or tablet instead of having to go back to the lighting controller. Here's how it works:
- Download an Art-Net controller of your choice from the Apple or Android store, there are many premium apps (such as Luminair® by Synthe FX®) as well as free apps (such as Art-Net Controller by Litux).
- Insert the WiDMX pen into the DMX input connector on the first light in your chain.
- Connect to the WiFi network generated by the transmitter. The network is encrypted and secured to keeps malicious or curious audience members out of your lighting show. The password for your unit is printed on a sticker that is placed on your transmitter. Because many venues provide WiFi to their customers, and most modern phones can be used as a mobile hotspot, the device will auto-switch channels in the event of WiFi congestion, preventing the venue router or audience's phones from harming your frequency.
