The specifications list 500 feet as the maximum line-of-sight distance, while several other WDMX systems list around 500 meters. Why the difference in distance, or is it just a typo?
It looks like the amount of data that the system can handle is factor in distance limitation of this system. The WIFLY systen cam handel up to 12 Universes of data or about 6144 channels .
The new EXR product has extended range of up to 2500 feet open line of sight.
Can I Use a Wifly to receive dmx info directly from luminair on an ipad over wifi? So without a computer.
WIFLY is not directly compatible with Luminair.
Can I independently control multiple units that each have a wifly transmitter, such as your spherion TRI LED light and REV 4's with your Wefly NE1 or RGBW8C?
RGBW8C and NE1 will control these lights but the NE1 is more suited to Moving lights than the RGBW8C.
Is the transmission encrypted? If not how do I keep someone from taking control of my lights?
Only one signal can be established with this product so no one can interfere when you link them together.
Once a wifly has been used in the signal chain can you then use the DMX outputs as normal to the nexxt chain of lights? And if so is there any limit to how many can be chained together from one Wifly unit? Does it support only one DMX Universe? Thanks in Advance. ;)
Yes, you can go dmx out from the wifly transciver to go into your chain of lights. To be on the safe more than 20 fixtures in the chain and yes, it supports one dmx universe. Let me know if you have any further questions.
