Elaho Integration Interface
Today’s lighting systems need to interact with external equipment for an easy and intuitive user experience. The Elaho Integration Interface (EII) adds advanced networking protocols to your Elaho control system, allowing it to seamlessly integrate with other control equipment, like third-party AV systems, for simultaneous lighting control with audio and video presets.
The Integration Interface does this by providing simple, bidirectional communication of User Datagram Protocol (UDP) string commands for control and status of preset and zone levels in Elaho spaces. Other systems can then send commands, query the system, or “subscribe” to system updates, all using UDP.
Responding to a query, Elaho can communicate what state a space or zone is in by sharing zone intensity, preset or off status, and sequence status. When other systems subscribe to updates, the EII will transmit status changes any time an enabled space’s status is changed. This allows external, third-party gear to always stay aware of the Elaho system state.
The EII allows for more than just information sharing, too. With the Elaho Integration Interface, users can set zone intensity, turn devices off, select presets, and even initiate and deactivate sequences – all from third-party devices. For example, AV touchscreens can monitor the lighting, and users can select presets from the AV system interface that Elaho will carry out.
