Looking forward to receive some help from you! Thanks in advance.

Welcome to the Forum.

I have just had a look at the flows page and it would seem that this has not been updated recently...

Node Info

Version: 1.0.4
Updated 5 years, 2 months ago
License: ISC

It is not a Node I have ever used, but not being updated for that long, there is a good chance that it might not work. You could possibly raise a query on the GitHub page, or perhaps someone else in the Forum might be able to help.

To echo @mudwalker

That node has not been maintained, up to the point, it’s trying to use a serialport node version (6.2.0) that has seen major!! Breaking changes in its downstream dependencies, the same node is now at v10 (or even 11 - I can’t remember)

Thanks for your reply! Do you know a way to control my DMX lighting? I am using an Enttec DMX USB PRO.

Thanks for your reply. Would it be possible to install an earlier version of that node? And how can i manage to do that?

Thanks in advance!

My best 'offer' would be to search the flows page to see what else is out there for DMX
