WHAT’S IN THE BOX
All Ape Labs lighting fixtures are sold à la carte so users don’t end up paying for accessories that they don’t use. However, bundle discounts are available at participating retail stores. Since all Ape Labs products use the same power supply, remote control, DMX transmitter, and Smart App, users are free to mix and match Ape Labs products and accessories to fit their needs.

The Maxi is a battery-powered, wireless DMX par can. This remarkably small and lightweight fixture produces a more intense wash effect than any other in its class. The German-made and German-designed feature set is also incredibly unique.
The available accessories for the Maxi really make it stand out. The tour case allows mobile users to pack six fixtures in a charging flight case the size of a briefcase. Since the packed weight, including the lights, is less than thirty pounds, one person can carry twelve Maxis up a flight of stairs in one trip without breaking a sweat! And when you’re done for the night, just drop the lights into their spots in the case. No need to plug in each light. The charging port connects to the bottom of the fixture as soon as the lights are put in the case. Simply plug the case into the wall for five to six hours, and all your lights will be fully charged (with a battery life of over fourteen hours).
The available Ape Remote is a unique accessory. By letting users create up to four separate groups with various SKUs, this simple remote allows users to create lighting shows similar to those made with DMX controllers. Since it’s 2.4GHz, it’s not directional . Just select the lighting group during setup, and you can control the lights from anywhere in the room. Want to control all four groups at the same time? No problem. A long press on the group button (two seconds) will light up all four “Group LEDs” on the remote. This lets you control all groups at the same time—until you hit the group button again for individual control.
The W-Ape is more than the typical transceiver. First of all, the wireless DMX range is 3,000 feet. Second, you can pair it with a DMX controller, pair it with the Ape Remote (to extend its range), or just use the on-board display to control the fixtures. Third, the unique wireless connection between the Ape Labs fixtures and the W-Ape allows users to set DMX channels and other fixture settings directly on the W-Ape. This means the fixtures themselves don’t need any LCD or buttons. This is incredibly beneficial because it simplifies the fixture designs, making them extremely reliable and extremely easy for an inexperience user to set up and operate. Finally, the built-in microphone in the W-Ape can be used instead of the individual microphone on each fixture during sound active mode, if the user would like all fixtures to be synchronized.
