COM Controller (Freeware)

Simple COM command control

COM Controller is a simple comms utility to send sets of pre-set commands via RS-232 to other devices. Up to 4 separate devices may be controlled (via 4 instances of the program).

The program may be controlled directly by HIP or DMX Listener but may also be controlled using standard windows messaging calls.

RS232 Documentation for the device you want to control and the appropriate cabling is required.

COM Commander (Freeware)

Simple COM control

COM Commander is a simple comms utility to send and view commands to RS-232 devices. The program was designed in particular to allow direct control of devices by the DMX Listener program, but maybe suitable for other purposes as well.

LCDC Com Server Plugin

Automation server plugin for LCDC

This LCDC plugin allows you to get and set information from any program that supports Microsoft’s Automation Server protocol. As every program uses this in its own way, information about the syntax is only available from the original vendor. To get you started, I have included a simple example using the iTunes media player.
