Watchnet and external control for Watchout


Recommended Posts

  • Member



I wonder if it could be possible to use simultaneously Watchnet and any external control to trigger some aux timelines. The idea is to have Watchnet for the main control of the Watchout on the show but it should be triggered by a button on the room. We could do a simple application to convert the command sent by Ethernet the GPIO to a run or setInput command. Is Watchnet using a TCP or UDP connection with WO?


Any suggestion would be welcome.


Thank you,

What you're asking for will work. WATCHOUT can accept multiple control sources simultaneously. Obviously, you need to take care not to send conflicting commands from the different sources, or you may confuse your users.


WATCHNET talks TCP to WATCHOUT, although this has no bearing on your main question.
