Do HolidayCoro Controllers Work With Light-o-Rama Software
Last Updated: 08/03/2017
If you have an existing Light-o-Rama display that uses either Light-o-Rama software (S3, S4, S5) and/or you have existing LOR controllers (AC, DC, CCR, CCB, PixCon, etc) and you'd like to integrate HolidayCoro controllers into your current display, we are happy to say - absolutely no problem!

All HolidayCoro controllers are based on industry standard protocols and are not in any way proprietary and this means that not only do they 100% work with LOR software but also all other sequencing software on the market. As there are a variety of different generations of LOR controllers, this article provides recommended integration methods by controller type.

Controller to Add
LOR Controller Interface Type Protocol(s) Supported Recommended Interface Method LOR Sequence Changes


E1.31 Protocol
Ethernet Interface
CTB16PC / 1602
16 Channel AC

24 Channel DC


Pixie 4/8/16
RS485 Proprietary LOR & E1.11 DMX Two parallel networks recommend - LOR and Ethernet.

AlphaPix Setup Instructions for LOR Software

No changes required, just add new controller to existing sequences.
PixCon16 RS485 / Ethernet Proprietary LOR & E1.11 DMX No special integration required - both controllers
use Ethernet

3 Channel Dumb
27/30 Channel Dumb

E1.11 / DMX 1990 Protocol
RS485 Interface
CTB16PC / 1602
16 Channel AC

24 Channel DC


Pixie 4/8/16
RS485 Proprietary LOR & E1.11 DMX Two parallel networks recommend - LOR and E1.11
For output to E1.11 DMX Network, use Actidongle

It is possible to also run your LOR controllers in E1.11 DMX
but we recommend against this due to complexity in setup

If you have an existing E1.31 controller from HolidayCoro
use the built-in RS485 interface. Click here for technical details
PixCon16 RS485 / Ethernet Proprietary LOR & E1.11 DMX Use the RS485 output(s) on PixCon16 to output DMX data to E1.11 DMX controllers. Consult with LOR for details.
