Cognito2 Lighting Controller

Pathway Connectivity

Cognito2 offers the same easy and intuitive programming interface that makes control over incandescent dimmers, moving lights and color-changing LEDs a breeze.  Although the interface hasn't changed, the output has.  Now with up to twice the universe count and a new display output for a high definition external monitor, Cognito2 doubles up on the capabilities of what is quickly becoming the go-to console for small to medium size churches, schools and other halls of public assembly.
