We have put together a very innovative package to control LED lights from your iPad (ipad not included). Luminaire is suitable for Architectural, Residential, and Commercial Lighting purposes - we do not recommend this for live stage applications. For live stage, studio, and venue lighting, we suggest our Titan One PC Suite. Luminaire is a free app you download to a Mac, and a paid app for an iPad. You need both apps to use it. Enttec is an Australian made DMX USB Pro MK2. 

What you get:
This price covers only the Enttec device. You must factor in the cost of the App which at time of writing is $130. We have intentionally not included an Ipad to keep costs down as most users will already have an Ipad. The app for the Mac is free. The only other cost is for the Ipad App.

What you need:
You will need an Ipad, of which you can use an existing Ipad you already own or purchase a new one from Apple.
You will also need to download the Luminare app to your Mac and Ipad. The Mac app is free. The Ipad app is about $130.

How it works:
The DMX from your lights plugs into your Enttec device.
The Enttec devise plugs into your router.
You download the Luminair app to your Mac. From here you design your light show.
You download the Luminair app to your Ipad (paid). From here you wirelessly control your light show.

Creative mobile lighting control. Evolved.
Luminair for iPad v2 is the ultimate lighting control tool for live entertainment, film/tv production, architecture, and for anyone else who works with creative lighting. It goes where no other lighting controller can go, offering wireless connectivity on the best mobile computing device ever created. 

Luminair is a full-featured lighting control platform, capable of controlling all DMX compliant gear including LED fixtures, conventional lighting, dimmers, media servers, and more, using any Art-Net or sACN to DMX interface.  Watch the v2 video
Projects   NEW 
Luminair's new project system periodically saves your files in the background, so you never have to manually save again. The new interactive project manager shows you a preview image of all of your files. Tap the image and your project zooms-in, exactly where you left off.

Luminair for iPad now supports saving projects to iCloud, so you can seamlessly sync your files between multiple iPad devices. Fixtures, images, midi maps, and other documents are also now synced through iCloud. 
Wireless Magic 
Wireless connectivity allows you to be unchained from your gear. Luminair is built on top of open industry standards, and transmits DMX over Wi-Fi using Art-Net and/or sACN E1.31 protocols, making it's compatible out of the box with lots of existing DMX interfaces and other lighting gear.
Multi-touch controls   NEW 
Luminair for iPad has a brilliant and refined user-Interface, with powerful touch-optimized controls for working with individual channels, as well as multi-channel fixture profiles. Some of the highlights include wide fader controls, large trigger buttons, RGB and CMY color pickers, XY controls with accelerometer support, and easy touch-based channel assignment. v2 adds new layer-based scene merging and the ability to assign any track fader as a master, independent of any scene changes.
Stacks Playback 
Luminair offers continuous automated show playback with Stacks, a scene-list playback system designed to make it very easy to put together shows for a wide variety of uses, in a really quick and familiar manner.

Creating looks and playing back shows is as simple a creating an iTunes playlist. Scenes are added to a stack, and each have their own individual hold and fade time. Create multiple stacks, apply batch timing to individual stacks, and choose one of five modes for playing back scenes. Seamlessly transition between hundreds of looks with a single fader control, by mapping an external MIDI controller to a Stack's current playback position.
CoverFlow + gestures   NEW
Luminair offers an innovative way of assigning pictures and images as visual references. Users can use the iPad's built-in photo library, the built-in iPad cameras, or Luminair's internal web server to assign images. A full-screen CoverFlow view makes it easy for users to browse and trigger scenes in a completely visual manner. 

Use your iPad as a touchpad for navigating and triggering different lighting scenes, using simple multi-touch gestures.  Watch the video
Sharing   NEW 
New sharing options have been completely integrated into Luminair. Send project, fixture files and images via email, and your recipient can open the files directly through their own iPad's mail app. Luminair will walk the user through opening project files or adding new fixture files, so sharing your designs has never been easier. 

Luminair also adds support for the iOS Twitter API, so you can quickly "tweet" images of your designs without leaving the app. 

MIDI Input 
Luminair supports MIDI input for various controls and actions. This allows you to map faders, knobs and buttons to trigger scene changes, change fader levels, playback and more. CoreMIDI support means you can use most bus-powered MIDI interfaces and controllers. 

OSC Input 
Luminair also supports OSC (Open Sound Control) input for a variety of controls, actions, and commands.

Use apps like TouchOSC on iOS, or OSCulator on Mac OS X combined with remotes and sensors like a Wii-mote.
MIDI Show Control   (In-App Purchase) 
Control Luminair from any external MIDI Show Control source, using MIDI over Wi-Fi, iPad Camera Connection Kit, or MIDI Mobilizer.

Create complex scene lists and execute other app commands, from the comfort of a traditional computer based control system.
AirPlay Monitor   NEW 
Luminair can now display both output and input DMX signals on a HDTV or projector, wirelessly via AirPlay to an Apple TV, or through the dock connector via HDMI, VGA, component or composite cable.
