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!

 

Driver Compatibility

Enhanced Lighting Interface is directly compatible with the following single-proxy dimmers.

  • Adeo DALI/DMX
  • ArtNet DMX (ExtraVeg, NextGenTec)
  • Clipsal C-Bus
  • ColorBeam
  • Control4 Centralised Lighting
  • KNX
  • Lutron Homeworks
  • Lutron QS
  • Lutron LEAP
  • Rako (Control4, ExtraVeg drivers)
  • Wiz

New compatibility is very quick and easy to add, so don’t hesitate to contact us if you would like to use this Enhanced Lighting Interface with any new drivers!

 

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.
