I improved automated recognition of controllers in the LED Ring Service. it’s even more stable now and supports also Controller.Nano.

The setup has been extended to allow selection of the controller type. This allows the setup to automatically detect controllers and to configure the LED Ring Service for a certain controller type. This avoides the need for manual configuration if updating the Service in a Controller.Nano environment.

The latest version is available for download on the LED Ring Service page.

New Controller versions available!

USB connectivity of the Controller Micro family has been improved. Controllers are now recognized by the operating system through a unique serial number. This fact stabilizes COM port assignment, even across software updates.

The new firmware can be downloaded on the LED Ring Service page.

I improved the LED Ring Service even further. It now detects controller ports automatically on start-up. Changes in COM port assignment that happen sometimes after Windows updates are recognized, resulting in a stable and continous operation.

In addition, I extended the configuration options to allow free running countdowns to be parameterized by the countdown duration sent by dslrBooth.

Photo Booth LED Ring Service version 1.9.2 available!

I extended the firmware of the LED Ring Controller Micro and LED Strip Controller Micro. A new function now allows to switch relais delayed. In addition to the immediately efective relais command, a delayed one may be specified. This allows to e.g. turn off effects after a given time without the need of sending a new command.

The LED Ring Service was adapted to support the new functionality.
