Beyond X10, DMX, wireless, and hybrid systems, this system uses an IP-based WiFi system where every light control has an IP address. Simple TCP connections allow sending of messages (on, dim to 20%, etc.) and inquiry as to the status of controls.
* more resistant to
line noise (intercoms, etc.) than X10
* Leverages existing WiFi technology
* Allows large number of individually addressed controls
* works with existing wiring (unlike DMX, which requires additional data cable)
* with proper proxy/firewall, allows remote control
||This system could also be used for control of low voltage circuits, such as in RVs and solar-powered cabins.
