  1. Jim, Thank you so much!! Very helpful! I'm going to buy a cheap beam detector and give it a try!
  2. K6ccc. Thanks so much. Can you send me the link for your light beams.
  3. I guess what I’m really asking is if I found a sensor I liked, how would I power it. Bc I would connect the 2 leads to the pup. How would I power the sensor without damaging the pup? thanks again -Nick
  4. Thanks so much Bryan. What is a PIR sensor? I’m sorry if that’s a dumb question. I’m still new to this.
  5. Hello everyone, I am working for a local fire department at the moment for a light display. They want their lights to trigger a specific sequence when they receive a fire call. I am making a sequence for when the trucks pull out of the garage bay. I purchased an Input pup to make this possible. I am able to use a single push button to trigger the sequence. Now my real question. I want to use some sort of invisible laser beam (like the safety lasers on garage doors, in case something is in the way it reopens the door). I want to put them high enough that if a truck breaks the beam it triggers the pup. However, I am assuming that the lasers require some power and may be more than the 9V that the pup can handle. Does anyone know how I can achieve this or have some other laser that would work? I’m sure someone has tried to do similar in their display. Thank you all in advance. -Nick
