 +There are lots of weird cheap DMX lighting fixtures available from ebay/​aliexpress. They'​re nowhere near suitable for any kind of "​real"​ lighting, but for making the lab pretty/​impressive they'​re worth a punt.

 +For the sake of simplicity, I think that cues fired from the sACN Relay Engine Controller Thing directly should mostly be intensity only, or intensity+basic colour effects (to replicate the existing control we have over the G1 LED strip). ​
