The CommandFusion Solo is an IP-enabled all-in-one control system.
On-board ports include RS232 (with flow control), IR (which also operate as 1-way RS232 transmission ports), IR Blaster on 3 sides, dry contact inputs and Ethernet.
The Solo features an on-board real time clock, allowing it to perform advanced scheduling functionality.

There are two card slots that can be used to expand the Solo with additional functionality, such as DALI, IO, RS485, CFLink and more.
See the List of Cards for more details.
