DJ Lighting Help – Why Most Fixtures Don’t Come On Right Away

August 21, 2017 by Brian S. Redd

So I got a real good question on Facebook the other day. Somebody who is brand new to DJ'ing and lighting is asking me, how come my light fixtures don't come on right away when I power them up? So every fixture acts a little different. I'll try to give you a little explanation on this.

But what I didn't show you is that this fixture is also compatible with the Dotz Par RC Remote, which is very cool. So we can do things like blackout. And this is RC, you don't have to be right next to it to do this. There's our light again. Let's say we want to do a fade.
