For integrators integrating DMX fixtures into a system like Crestron, Control4 or AMX via RS-232 or contact closures, Springtree’s Wall Station SM-8IF Converter aims to make it easier.
Once integrated, pros can recall any of the programmed scenes from either the control system or directly from the Wall Station. Springtree says the solution is easily integrated in a home or commercial environment.
A note on the Springtree site explains how the company itself uses the SM-8IF:
“Here is an example of how we use the SM-8IF in our office. Our office lighting is automated through Control4, so at the beginning and end of the day, we hit a single button, and all our work lights turn on and off. This makes it convenient for quick exists when a single button can assure us that we didn’t leave any lights on. Yet, in our studio, we use DMX wash lighting for filming product videos.
“Usually this would mean having two different systems of control, but with the SM-8IF, we were able to integrate 8 scenes of DMX control into our Control4 system. So turning off all the office lighting, including the studio, is as easy as pushing one button at the end of a long day.”
The Wall Station includes eight programmable scenes, built-in fade times and control via RS-232 and contact closure input.
It is expandable via Cat5 to include up to three optional slave stations for additional points of control around a venue. The SM-8IF requires a DMX lighting controller or computer running DMX lighting software to program the 8 scenes, but can run independently after being programmed.
