The Astera App offers intuitive and fast control of complex lighting setups with fully customizable programs and effects. It is designed to work seamlessly with other control methods. It can set up DMX addresses and footprints for CRMX control and Astera’s IR remote can be used to send App commands to single lights.

What makes the AsteraApp unique
When combined with Astera fixtures, AsteraApp offers powerful and unique capabilities going beyond pixel control.
Layer Effects – Full control over your pixels
It is now easier than ever to control pixels of your Astera lights and create complex effects:
The AsteraApp offers several ways to select colors such as color-wheel, Filter Gels, color temperature, HSI, RGB and CIE 1931. Thanks to Astera’s ultra-precise Truecolor calibration Astera fixtures can display the precise color that was selected.
Create complex programs out of colors, effects and settings. The lights will remember and repeat these effects without requiring a constant wireless link.
Quickly create groups of lights, assign positions and select which lights should receive commands.
Brightness – Individually adjusted
Set exact brightness levels of individual lights, groups of lights or all lights. Switch them temporarily into an energy-saving standby mode when you don’t want to drain the battery.
Bi-directional communication is deeply integrated into AsteraApp and Astera lights. Get a list of all your lights and their statuses, even when controlling them by DMX. And keep a permanent overview by filtering and sorting by different criteria
Change your light’s DMX addresses, footprints, etc… without touching the lights. Select multiple lights and change their settings together to save even more time.
