UDP art light installation


I have an art installation that I need to control over IP using UDP. I have hex string calculator and I can generate control commands I need (example: 55 AA 00 15 FE 00 01 FF FF FF 01 00 01 00 00 02 05 00 80 80 80 80 80 EF 5.

I looked into loxone knowledge base I found out that I can use virtual outputs. Am I correct, please? Also I believe I can’t just send hex as "55 AA 00 15 FE…" but "x55xAAx00x15xFE…" ?

Could you please confrim if it is possible to send those commands using loxone?

Hi Piotr

Yes it is entirely possible to send these hex commands over UDP. You are correct you want to be using Virtual Outputs.

  1. Create a new Virtual Output and under the parameter for "Address" you want to format it as /dev/udp/ipaddress/port e.g /dev/udp/
  2. Create a new Virtual output command under this and then in the parameter "Command for On" you want your hex string. You are correct there is a correct way to format it this will be x e.g x55xAAx00

A tool like Hercules can be very useful in testing IP commands.
