Base Station Software

Base Station will assist you in learning how NCD Devices function and is the ultimate reference tool for setting up, testing and controlling these devices.  Base Station software supports every feature of every supported device - no other controller manufacturer even comes close to offering this type of software.  Base Station works by communicating with your controller to identify the model and provides the appropriate graphical user interface for controlling and testing the identified device.  Quick Start Guides are available for just about every feature of the controller.  As you discover a feature in Base Station a link is provided where you can quickly download the Quick Start Guide.
