How to Use CuetPOS to Turn on Your Pool Room Lights - X10, Imsteon, Sonoff, Shelly products
Question: How do I install the automatic light controls?
Answer: The light controls are simple to install. The controllers and modules are designed to plug into existing outlet and your lights plug directly into the modules. The most important issue is that the controller and the light controls outlets are on the same phase, but being on the same breaker is the best choice. With LED lights, this no longer presents an issue.
If you choose to use the wireless light controls, we can walk you through the setup in no time. The process normally takes about a minute per switch. You would just need to contact our technical support at 800-460-3525.
Several light control companies are experiencing issues working with Windows 8, Windows 10 and Windows 11. CuetPOS can control lights for just about any pool room in existence, even rooms with 110V and 220V electrical systems. Many international billiard businesses and pool rooms have been moving their light controls to CuetPOS for the 220 volt integration and the increased functionality that is more than just turning on and off their lights during rental.
In the past, we only used carrier signal methods to control the lights, integrating many devices and modules from the X-10 and Insteon families of products. Recently, we integrated WiFi by introducing Sonoff and Shelly switches to our list of compatible devices. If interested in if we control older devices already in your establishment, or for a full list of supported devices, please contact us at 724-602-5223.
CuetPOS can control up to 256 lights. It can dim incandescent and dimmable LED (even several type claiming that they are undimmable), turn on and off lights with table rental, and even send notifications that reserved table time is ending.
We suggest that you use lighting or appliance modules and an Insteon controller. You’ll need one (1) module per table and at least one (1) controller per room. CuetPOS can control multiple controllers simultaneously. Implementing light controls into a room is extremely simple to do.
If you're using X-10 or Insteon light conrtols, the best setup for lights is dependent upon the room layout. Sometimes pool rooms have lights on separate breakers. There are fixes for this, either using CuetPOS or using additional hardware. We highly recommend switching to the wireless light controls and LED lights. But if you have a system already in place, we retrofit to almost any older light control system.
