I am using led strip on 12 treads of a staircase. The lighting is to be controlled by a 4 zone rgbw dmx controller. Can I connect 2 controllers so I can have 3-way operation ie. on controller at the top of the stairs and one on the ground floor? If so, how do i do this and will they work in sync?

Thanks, Helene


You would have one decoder/receiver that drives the LEDs, and it is controlled by DMX.

You would need to choose controllers which can work together, they won't do that intrinsically. That's more of a DMX issue.

  • Can you expand on this. I would be using 2 identical controllers hard wired to 1 set of leds on the stairs - can i get the controllers to function as a 2-way switch? If so, how would i do this? I have the decoder/reciever, but i want to be able to control the same set of lights from both upstairs and downstairs. – Helene Sep 9 '17 at 23:31

    Why did you pick those specific controllers? – Harper - Reinstate Monica Sep 9 '17 at 23:44
