Please forgive me if i use incorrect terminology. I'm new to the world of Pi & have a requirement that I'm struggling to find advice on. I have basic coding experience in Python, and C, and i'm not afraid to get my hands dirty!
I have a lighting system that can be controlled by sending ASCII RS232 commands to the controller. Unfortunately, RS232 "splitters" haven't provided my with any great success with regards to being able to send commands from 2 separate systems to the lighting controller.
To be able to pass-through RS232 commands from 2 sources out to one destination. Commands will never be sent from the 2 systems in parallel, this is merely a method to manage the signals using the Pi. That being said, I'd like to have a web based interface that would allow me to send commands out to the lighting controller to activate lighting scenes etc. remotely by sending the appropriate RS232 commands.
Has anyone ever done something like this before? Would it be possible to achieve and does anyone have any pointers?
I'm currently researching options at the moment so any advice you have would be appreciated!
