The LOR Tab
|Top Previous Next|
The LOR tab of Simple mode of the Light-O-Rama Network Preference program enables you to specify up to sixteen different networks for Light-O-Rama controllers, each using a different serial port. The communications speed of each network can be set independently. Many users will only ever require a single network, referred to as the "Regular Network". You can quickly configure the Regular network using the two dropdown boxes: Port and Speed.

If you need to configure additional networks (referred to as "auxiliary networks" or "Aux networks"), expand the second section (entitled "More (Aux Networks)"). Here you will be presented a list of all available auxiliary networks:

In the dropdown box for each Light-O-Rama network that you wish to configure, chose the serial port that you wish to use for that network. Make sure that they do not conflict with each other, or with the Dasher port, X10 port, or DMX adapters.
If you do not want to use all possible networks, you can simply set the adapters for some of them to "(None)". Using only a single Light-O-Rama network is perfectly sufficient for the needs of many users.
Light-O-Rama can communicate with Light-O-Rama controllers using various communication speeds. These speeds can be set independently for each Light-O-Rama network:
