Intelligent Modules

What is an Intelligent Module?

Symetrix Intelligent Modules expand the capabilities of a Composer site with customizable control of third-party devices and powerful manipulation of control data within a design. Like any other module within Composer, Intelligent Modules are easy to use and can be created by the system designer or imported from our library of premade solutions.

Comprised of a custom control view and a script written in Lua, users interact with the controls to trigger functionality in the script. The script can communicate with a third-party piece of hardware via TCP, UDP or HTTP, allowing a user to monitor and control that hardware. Intelligent Modules can also interact with other modules in a design through input and output control pins.
