I would like to manage a huge amount of lights with an arduino. I bought a DMX shield (this one)
The purpose is to dim the light up and down in that way:
I plan to use the DMX Simple library.
I wonder if I will have to plug the DMX shield to a DMX console that control the dimmer, or directly to the dimmer.
And, if there is special things to know about the connection to the DMX console or dimmer. Will I juste have to plug the DMX shield and it will work?
Does anyone have experience on it?
I am a beginner (in lighting and arduino)... Could you please enlighten me.
