Q: How do I connect my tablet, smart phone or console to the Apollo Bridge?

A: The Apollo Bridge transmits its own Local Area Network (LAN) using the sACN protocol. Like with any other wireless router, you can connect your control device by joining the ‘Apollo Bridge’ wireless network as you would with your home or office internet network. You can also connect a laptop, console or other network device via the LAN ethernet port.
