Control a telnet connected lighting system Litetouch 5000lc


Anyone ever connected, built buttons or controlled a 5000LC or similar Litetouch lighting system.

The systems are discontinued, but were common in the 90’s as a smart lighting system before being killed by Savant.

I currently have connection via Windows 10 Putty telnet connection and I’m able to turn lights on and off, send and receive strings, change scenes, check levels and led states, etc. via simple command strings to the lighting systems CPU.

I’d like to just have some buttons on my ST or smartphone to make them pressable. I’m guessing I will need a constant telnet connection open?


Your help is apprecaited and I’m pretty novice at programming buttons, command line, etc.

See this listing for a Litetouch internet control solution. Thanks.
