  1. I had the same issue with our lights every now and again. I would head out in the morning and some of the lights would be on dimly. Since I added a shutdown sequence no more issues with it. I run S4.
  2. Along the lines of what Santas Helper said, maybe add a 1/2 second to the length of the sequence and have everything blank/off. You could also run a shutdown sequence with a short blank sequence to be sure everything of off at the end of the show/night.
  3. I can't find any pics of the bare stands at the moment... basically there are three Tees and short sections of 1/2" pvc to make the base and end caps on the legs. Then a long piece of 1/2" pvc for the vertical in the middle. I like that you have two channels in your so you can make the flame flicker! Here is a pic of a couple in the display:
  4. We have the NOEL candles as well. A couple years ago I built PVC pipe stands for them. This also allowed us to light the entire candle with LEDs inside. The center pipe runs about half way or so into the flame part. I did not glue the parts together, just friction fit. I think the light string is a 60 count...
  5. Earle are these regular store bought LEDs or commercial grade?
  6. pickings were very slim around here after Christmas as well... we are slowly upgrading to the professional sealed LEDs. They are quite a bit more expensive but should hold up much better as well. http://www.holiday-light-express.com is a good source and where we have lights from and will be getting more from them. They have a great warranty on the lights also! We had to have a bunch replaced and it was no problem at all and it was our fault that the lights went bad...
  7. I had a few strings that were half out like that, so I cut them up and connected the good parts together... then kept the remaining good bulbs as spares.
  8. We found this last night next to our sign at the street: 🆒
  9. We didn't have anything new this year, just added more lights to some props. Our mini trees went from 150ish lights each to about 700 lights each! I did get a bunch of the mini strobes but they never made it out into the show. Mainly due to the weather, lots of rain this year.
  10. I thought they usually do that when they see you in the yard! 🤣😜🤣
  11. Chill Dude! 🤐 LOL 🤣 It''ll be OK 🤖
  12. Not sure if you can run a background sequence with the Basic Plus license level? We have several inflatables and other items that are either just on or have the same sequence during our entire show. We just set those channels all the same in every sequence, copy and paste... Also like stated above set those channels to on/off only in the hardware utility so you don't accidentally ramp/twinkle/shimmer a motor or relay. To help protect the LOR controllers I use a couple of relays to isolate the motors. Like these: AC to AC solid state relay
