    Hi all,

    Looking at the LOR controller, Australian plugs (Love your opinion about it).

    Is it correct that I have to buy lights that do not have a controller built in right?

    I would appreciate if someone has a video on our setup.

    Regards,
    Chris

    Have you thought about going pixels with pixel controllers?

    240V AC controllers (LOR or otherwise) are not really used much these days.

    Most people have moved to low voltage DC controllers or pixel systems.

    A better approach is to think about the end result you want to achieve then choose the lights and control system to do it.

    Check out the "101 manual" in the starting out section. That will give you some good background knowledge.
