    Hello,
    I'm Jo(e) en lives in Belgium, So please excuse me for my bad English speaking and writing, but I'll do my very best to make as less mistakes as possible.
    For the last 2 years I'm using 5 LOR controllers + 2 CCR but now I would like to start working with RGB leds because the CCR'S from LOR are taking to much money out off my budget for the Christmas decoration. SO I hope I can find some information in this group so I can incorporate some RGB Leds and controllers into my LOR system.

    Welcome to ACL. This is a great place for you to get a lot of info.


    I know the CCR feeling, I have 17 in my display which I have had for over 3 years
    Lately I branched out into Pixels and various strips and dumb RGB.


    There are lots of strips, pixel nodes and controllers to look at. Most of which you will find info on in the forums.


    Stop by Chat and ask questions..

    If you haven't found it yet, the new revised 2nd addition AusChristmasLighting 101 manual is a great resource for all things RGB and more. :)

    Come to chat and ask questions.

    Thanks for the nice welcome's, I was thinking to start working with Sandevice E682 but I need to be sure that I can incorporate this into my LOR system and I wonder if I can still use LOR Software to program my sequences.
    Like I told I'm working with
    5 LOR controllers CTB16PC
    1 CMB 24 RGB controller
    2 CCR's
    I really want to incorporate RGB Pixels is the Sandevice E682 a good option.
    All idea's and help is very welcome and will be appreciated by this newbie

    You will be able to use LOR and RGB together through LOR software as long as you have the adavanced version

    As FastEddy stated, if you have LOR Advanced Edition (3.0 or better) you can add Sandevice E682.
    Advanced Edition has DMX. RGB pixels use DMX.

    Thnx, first thing to do is to upgrade my LOR Software to advance, I'm using standard edition at the time.
    And than order the Sandevice or has anyone a better idea ?
