I've been away from the game for a while and wondering what's out there for controlling a Clipsal C-Bus lighting system. Years ago I had Control4, CQC and other solutions but moved away from all of them over the years. The system is rock solid from the keypads but looking to start playing again with a modern control system.

Any leads?

Thanks.

The only place I use a control system for the C-Bus is in the theatre. Everywhere else it's the normal C-Bus hardware. My C-Bus is about 12 years old and I believe they now have better smart interfaces available (Wiser ??).

I just have a C-Bus serial interface in the theatre rack and use a Global Cache IP2SL and the Demopad control app.

I reverse engineered the C-Bus commands and feedback, over a very long period that involved way more of my time than it deserved, but I really wanted to crack the challenge.

Sorry to bump an old thread, but I've ust been speaking to Alan Chow of Chowmain.

He tells me their new Control4 Cbus driver is in Beta stage right now and from what he tells me, it should be pretty damned awesome with excellent programming capabilities.

Biggest thing of note, is the ability to program eDLT text from Composer Pro. This is huge for me, as I HATE Toolkit.

Should be live in the coming months.
