Luminair 3 adds support for LumenRadio’s MoonLite and TimoTwo

LumenRadio and Synthe FX have announced the immediate availability of a new update to Synthe FX’s Luminair 3 app that adds support for outputting DMX over Bluetooth to LumenRadio’s MoonLite™ and TimoTwo™ platform.

Luminair 3, from developers Synthe FX, is an iOS-based lighting control app for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch.

“LumenRadio’s MoonLite™ is a new wireless DMX control product that incorporates an updated version of the company’s award-winning, ultra-reliable CRMX technology, combined with Bluetooth connectivity and a built-in battery.

MoonLite is built on TimoTwo™, LumenRadio’s new radio module that enables the next generation of wireless DMX communication. Built-in Bluetooth compatibility makes TimoTwo™ a dynamic platform, always evolving via software updates to offer users and manufacturers the latest wireless functionalities.”

The new functionality in Luminair v3.7.4 allows users to output DMX over an iOS device’s built-in Bluetooth hardware, directly to MoonLite™ and TimoTwo devices™. Special optimizations have been made to deliver the full Luminair app experience over low-bandwidth BLE connections. All features in Luminair are supported at a reduced frame rate, including FX, sequences and long fade transitions.

Connecting to a LumenRadio BLE device within Luminair is a simple one-step process. Users no longer need to configure a custom network or individual adapters. Just tap on the device listed in Luminair’s Bluetooth discovery window and a full universe of DMX will be output whenever that device is within range. Luminair can also output the same universe over Art-Net and sACN simultaneously with the Bluetooth output.

“The simple connection process will appeal to users working in fast-paced environments like Film and TV production, where it’s not always practical to set up a full network for lighting control”, says Ryan Hisey, founder of Synthe FX. “We’re thrilled that LumenRadio has created this new product platform that streamlines the wireless workflow for users, while simultaneously offering lighting manufacturers the ability to incorporate Luminair app compatibly directly in their products.”

“The Bluetooth compatibility in TimoTwo and MoonLite opens up to a totally new era of wireless DMX and we are happy that Luminair 3 now has support for outputting DMX over Bluetooth to LumenRadio’s new product platform. Synthe FX is a pioneer in this field and we’re excited that the entire Luminair app user base now has the ability to directly interact with our products.” says Niclas Norlén CTO at LumenRadio.

The Luminair v3.7.4 update is available now on the iOS App Store, as a free download for existing Luminair 3 customers. Pricing for new customers varies across regions. Full product information is available at

Both MoonLite™ and TimoTwo™ are available for order. MoonLite™ is ordered via LumenRadio’s distributors (Link ) and for interest in the TimoTwo™ module please contact

LumenRadio, world leader in providing reliable wireless DMX, is taking their patented technology to the next level with the release of their new module TimoTwo™ – the next generation of wireless DMX communication.

The current TiMo™ platform, which was launched back in 2014, enables unprecedented reliable wireless DMX for fixture manufacturers. LumenRadio’s new TimoTwo™  platform is the next generation of reliable wireless DMX communication and with patent pending DMXmesh™ option, Bluetooth compatibility and improved Coexistence, TimoTwo™ will be the most reliable and useful radio module for wireless DMX.

LumenRadio’s TimoTwo™ is a fully integrated DMX/RDM module and offers over-the-air firmware upgrades, SMT mounting, an integrated on-chip antenna as well as a UF.L connector for external antennas. It will be available for purchase in Q2, 2019

Bluetooth connectivity

Bluetooth enables easy commissioning and lighting control using portable devices, firmware updates over the air and support for DMX over Bluetooth (in TX mode). You can also build your own lighting control app using LumenRadio’s open Bluetooth API.

Improved Coexistence

TimoTwo™ has a dynamic RF transmission resulting in reduced RF footprint as well as improved disturbance detection and improved reliability


The DMXmesh™ option, which will be made available later on this year, enables flexible fixture placement and an extended range of your wireless communication.  

With LumenRadio’s patent pending DMXmesh™ technology, every receiver and fixture will also act as a repeater, where all devices coordinate among themselves to make sure that the coverage is expanded in the most optimal.  

Also, by using the DMXMesh™ option the time needed for installation and wireless commissioning will be greatly reduced for architectural and architainment illumination with no more site surveys or complicated planning for the wireless DMX distribution. The DMXmesh™ technology will let you focus on what is important; illumination, not on DMX distribution.


CRMX Toolbox app

With TimoTwo™ in your fixtures, you can now use our newly developed CRMX Toolbox app to track and connect to your fixtures and controllers. TimoTwo’s built-in Bluetooth connectivity enables DMX light control through 3rd party smart device light controllers as well as the option to build your own application using our open Bluetooth API.

From now on, there is no need for any extra hardware to connect to and control your fixtures from handheld devices – you have full control light control in the palm of your hand!
