Simple external - ready-made - on/off switch?
« on: February 27, 2018, 01:28:08 AM »
Hi there,


Discovered FPP recently, and it's an amazing piece of software!


I'm using it currently for a different purpose: an art video installation.


For that I would love to just switch on/off some devices (lights, ventilator), so I'm wondering if you guys know of an external (ready-made, I'm not good with soldering) power switch that can swith on/off?


Is there something you can recommend?


Greets,
Frank

I use a 4 port USB Relay. It is supported as a DMX device by FPP in the "other" category.

ICStation makes them. Search for that in these forums
