Nicolaudie Stick-CW4 Wi-Fi Programmable DMX Controller


The Nicolaudie STICK-CW4 Wi-Fi Programmable DMX Controller is a wall-mounted touch panel controller with Wi-Fi capabilities allowing the user to control via an App available for iOS and Android devices.

This controller is perfect for professional clients requiring an advanced level of programming options (timed color-changing effects, specific colors, etc.), and who also want to use a phone app to control their lights. Its minimalistic, user-friendly panel makes it an ideal solution for hotels, homes, and public environments.

The controller is compatible with RGB and RGB+W applications, and from it you can control up to 1024 channels of DMX. It is USB programmable from a PC or Mac using the ESA2 or ESA Pro 2 software, and has many advanced features such as remote network control via Wi-Fi, calendar and control triggers, and up to 36 scenes that can be stored within the controller and directly recalled via six touch-sensitive scene buttons. A button located in the center of the color wheel can be used to jump between scenes or reset a color change.

This controller includes a USB power cable and power supply. Software is included as well.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Why use DMX?

If you have very specific control requirements, a large amount of fixtures to control all at once, or set-ups that require multiple zones or areas, then DMX is a good fit for your project. DMX can control many different pieces of DMX equipment such as lighting equipment, smoke machines, projectors, dimmers, etc. from a central location. In addition, fewer cables are used saving setup time and cost.

Q: How do you control DMX?

First you need to determine how many lighting zones or areas you wish to control independently. Each one of those zones or areas needs its own DMX address, so a DMX decoder can send a signal to control it.

A single DMX universe can control up to 512 channels. Some controllers have only a single DMX universe while others have multiple. Single-color LEDs require a single channel to send instructions to dim or brighten your light, or to switch it on and off, but Dynamic Tunable White, RGB and RGB+W each have different channel requirements to control the brightness of each adjustable color. For example, an RGB LED strip will use three of the 512 channels within a single DMX universe, one for red, one for green and one for blue.

Q: What is the main difference between a programmable and a non-programmable DMX controller? When are each of them recommended?

A programmable DMX controller allows you to program your DMX set-up via a specific software on a computer. This allows for greater possibilities for the control of your DMX set-up. On the other hand, a non-programmable DMX controller operates in a stand-alone mode, without receiving any input from a computer, allowing users to only use the pre-programmed scenes in the controller.  A non-programmable DMX controller is ideal for simple cost-friendly projects that do not require any programming or complex configurations.. A programmable controller is recommended for bigger projects with very specific configuration requirements, and that possibly also need to control other DMX systems for architectural or stage applications (lasers, scanning heads, fog machines, and other DMX-based stage lighting equipment).

Q: Can I install the controller outdoors?

These products are not outdoor rated. Keep them indoors, and avoid exposure to moisture or direct sunlight.

Q: Where can I find the ESA2 or ESA Pro 2 software?

Compatible with both Windows and Mac, the ESA2 and ESA Pro 2 softwares have evolved over the years to become a worldwide reference for architectural lighting control. The ESA2 is a better choice for single universe setups that are using standard DMX fixtures, while the ESA Pro 2 is geared more towards installations involving pixel/digitally addressable fixtures. Set up either software and gain full control of your DMX lighting fixtures.
