Interactive Technologies CueServer (DMX Controller)

Hi all, I have a bunch of outdoor lighting all driven through DMX decoders. I originally was controlling these with a Raspberry Pi + USB DMX interface + Node-RED + custom playback engine but the SD card died and wanted a more off-the-shelf solution.

I needed something that:

  • Is a commercial product with docs, support etc
  • Is a standalone DMX controller that can play scenes for holiday lighting etc
  • Has a network interface
  • Can be controlled by other devices through an API

So I found one of these "cheap" on ebay:
CS-816 CueServer Express

Does everything I want and can trigger any command with simple UDP calls which I can (in theory) do from Hubitat.

I've just started getting into Hubitat Dev so will be posting my progress on connecting these devices here. Stay tuned!

How about this?

Or, this, but it isn't ethernet:

@fuzz.iot !'m Always on the lookout for something more affordable/new as the only reason CueServer was viable was an ok Ebay sale and it's also 10+ years old.

I also found this thing:

Once I get my system back up it's almost cheap enough to buy one just for testing.
