Most of the time we are talking about a complete product like a moving light, smoke machine, or LED fixture that is fully integrated and has full knowledge of all it's sensors and properties to report back via RDM. In this case you're building something by connecting two different products together so you're capabilities in RDM are limited to what the Decoder can provide.
Got it, thanks so much for the info!
