Overview

Enhanced Lighting Interface is an invaluable companion driver to the unique lighting drivers by Janus; Color Wheel and Circadian Lighting.

The driver allows control of separate single-channel dimmer drivers as if they were distinct channels of a multi-channel fixture, fully managing the relative scaling of each channel needed to show complex colours.

It can behave as an RGB, RGBW, WW or Tunable white fixture, bringing along with it the relevant custom commands – so you can take full control of the integration with Control4 programming!

FAQ

What do I need to install?

You should add 1 instance of the Lighting Interface for each light fixture you have.
From there, you need to set the Colour Mode property to describe the type of this fixture (RGB/RGBW/WW), and use the device selectors to link the correct channels to the existing dimmer drivers.

How do I use this driver with Color Wheel?

After configuring the properties of the Enhanced Lighting Interface driver, your Color Wheel driver will automatically discover it, and show the lighting interface on the webview alongside any other Color Wheel-compatible lights in your project.

 

How do I use this driver with Circadian Lighting?

After configuring the properties of the Enhanced Lighting Interface driver, select your Circadian Lighting driver in the system design view, and choose ‘Enhanced Lighting Interface’ using the device selector property.

 

What is the purpose of the Channel Limits properties?

Some dimmers have associated data types that limit the available range of control from the Control4 sliders.

A single-channel RGB datatype you might expect that the range 0-100 covers the entire colour wheel (0=red, 33=green, 66=blue, 100=red), but some datatypes might have a different range (the Lutron Single-Channel RGB data type has an effective range of 15-98).

With the Channel Limits properties, you can now choose from some pre-configured ranges of popular datatypes, or even choose Custom to add your own!

To leave the dimmers in their default range (0-100), ensure that you have Standard selected.

 

Will you be supporting more lights in the future?
