1- Is there any DETAILED document explaining the capabilities of the STICK product in details? (Like a User/Installation guide or smthg like that)?
2-I copuld read in the forum that up to 8 (or 12?) port switches can be connected. This wasn't clear in any other documentation.
The STICK has 8 ports, 4 of which are available on the large connector block, the other 4 either on the ethernet addon or connecting directly inside the black connector blocks on the board.
You can connect 8 switches to the ports or combine the ports in binary to use up to 255 switches.
See the documentation for more info.
It is still not clear to me how scenes can be activated in different rooms without being obliged to install a STICK in every room
At the moment you have 4 options
1. Install a STICK in each room..yes it is expensive but if you have advanced lighting in each room and DMX drivers in each room, it's not going to make much of a difference to the final cost
2. Install 1 STICK and use the 8 dry contact ports to wire in switches
3. Connect the STICK to a currently installed RS232 system
4. Connect the STICK to a local network and use your iPhone, Android or Windows Mobile applications or create you own device which can communicate over ethernet (I can send you a list of the STICK ethernet protocol commands)
In the future, we plan to integrate the new cheaper STICK 2 product with the STICK over a local network, this will provide a cheaper wireless solution.
Let me know if you have any other questions!
