HAHA, that would be pretty cool.
Do you know if the software requires that you use Chauvet hardware, or can you use any USB to DMX hardware/dongle?

John Fruits:
Why not  just use a timer to turn the power to the lights on and off. Yes someone would have to reset the timer during the year.  Or a photocell and relay to do the same thing.  You should really cut the power to led units when they are not in use by the way.

I don't think the lights will come back on with the same program if power is cut. That's something I'm going to test when I can get back out there. If that does work, then yes... simple solution.

Yes, it requires the chauvet dongle.

They'll come back on and once they receive the DMX signal will go immediately into that  mode. That's how I operate all the lights on my truss. Just keep the power to the controller running.
