3rd party rgb light control software?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I am the owner of some NZXT Hue+ led strips and an AER RGB fan but i'm not happy with the horrible CAM software. I kinda want it to cycle different modes but that's not possible. Also the sound activation is pretty horrible.

 

Is there any 3rd party software that lets you control the rgb led strips from kits like NZXT Hue+ or Corsair Lighting Node Pro?

 

Thanks

Those are all proprietary systems which require the use of their manufacture’s sowftware, there are no other options to control them.

Your locked into what NZXT software they created. If your willing to change I suggest looking into Aqua-Computer farbwerk RGB controller which gives you access to there Aquasuite software. Which has allot more options and control.


Current Build: Project Frost

How come nobody created this? Afterall you would say that there is alot of people that would want it I guess.

 

it's not that it's technically impossible I imagine.

I dont think buying other stuff is gonna be an option. I was mostly hoping for different software.

They can’t the manufacture needs to release the API for people to be able to reprogram it. Asus did that with their Aura sync system and while there have been some that have taken advantage of that there hasn’t been a whole lot.

I haven't used NZXT products in a very long time, From what I recall it's very bare bones with options. Your basically locked into using there software, without the released of a source code or SDK You will be limited to what you can do.

 

I always considered NZXT budget level when it comes to there products (nothing wrong with there products). You just need to be aware what your getting & how much control you have over there products inside your PC.

 

Aqua-Computer just has allot more options (I mean allot more).
