CueServer 2 provides up to two serial ports, one RS-232 port and optionally one RS-485 port. These ports are designed to be used to interface with 3rd party devices such as video projectors, automation systems, security panels, motorized window coverings, and most anything else that has either an RS-232 or RS-485 serial interface.

Each serial port can be programmed to output strings of ASCII and/or binary data via CueScript actions and/or rules. Each serial port can be configured to receive and execute CueScript commands or to work with CueStation Hub protocol. Triggering on custom input strings has not been implemented yet.
