What is Advatek Assistant 3?
Advatek Assistant 3 is a free Windows/macOS/Linux application that allows our customers to discover and manage multiple PixLite® Mk3 (and future) devices within the same installation. This useful tool can discover any device connected to the network, display information about the device and its current status, and provides complete management abilities.
Why create Advatek Assistant 3?
