The DMX Experience (Part 2)

Today I had some more time to work on my DMX project, and since my new spotlights have not yet arrived (they seem to be at the post office for pickup), I chose to work on the software part, more specifically: the integration into the PiLight system.

This is not going to be a very exciting post since I'm just going to refer you to the github project for the details on what I've done simply because there was not much to be learned today. I included the python code from the FX5 project (the commercial clone of the Digital Enlightenment interface) and wrote some simple interfacing python code (luckily, PiLight is already somewhat similiar to classical lighting control systems in its architecture) and it worked right away.

Here's a video that shows it in action (and also an early development stage of the upcoming Android app):

To be continued!
