    My Controllers wont work with the sequnence

    Back to your original post. Your controller addresses are 10, 11, and 12. You also said the you set the controller count in the HU to 16. The controller addresses are hexadecimal, but the unit count in the HU is a decimal value (I think). So 10 hex=16, 11 hex=17, and 12 hex=18. My guess it the HU is only finding the controller with address 10. Try to set the count in the HU higher than 18 and see what happens.

    I can't seem to get to their web site. Anyone know what is going on?

    Controller works in hardware utility but doesn't in sequences

    If you are trying to run sequences from the sequence editor, be sure the control lights option is checked.

    SPT vampire plug "in-line"

    Bob, Chuck once told me that he ground a pair of snips down to the correct width so that he could us them to make inline plugs. I think he started with something like this. https://smile.amazon.com/Cutting-Pliers-Precision-Nipper-Jewelry/dp/B01NCN4J0K/ref=sr_1_2_sspa?ie=UTF8&qid=1535111086&sr=8-2-spons&keywords=end+cutting+pliers&psc

    Using Insteon with the LOR program

    I use Insteon to control some static items. Radio sign, blow molds, etc... I just use the timer feature in my Insteon Hub. Jerry

    7 Segment Display ???

    Dibblejr I understand what a 7-segment display is. I was referring to the OP, his example only had two digits. Just joking around anyway.

    Why not a three digit number? BTW today there are 302 days until Christmas. lol

    Best way to anchor 40" blow mold figures?

    I think they look fine. Try it, if you don't like it, you can always dump out the sand and try something else. A bag of sand isn't very expensive, so you won't lose much. If you think about a real candle. The flame is at the top and the most light is at the top and the candle grows darker nearer the bottom. Jerry

    Best way to anchor 40" blow mold figures?

    There is a hole in back about 6 inches or less from the bottom of the candle, this is where the power cord exits. I filled mine with sand level with this hole. For the others, I use a lead weight in the bottom - someone else mentioned a patio block, as long as you can get it through the hole in the bottom.

    Outdoor speakers

    I just bought some outdoor speakers and ran speaker jacks into the same outside box that I have my cat 5 jacks in for the controllers. I have an amplifier in the house hooked up with insteon. this amplifier drives the outdoor speakers. The insteon allows me to turn off the amplifier after 10 so it doesn't bother the neighbors. You can get speaker jacks, cat 5 jacks, wire etc at Home Depot.

    Best way to anchor 40" blow mold figures?

    I have blow mold candles like those in the photo above. I filled the base with sand. It is enough weight to keep them from blowing over. The solution shown above is good, it looks like it will light the candle very nicely. Jerry

    Blow Mold Problem

    Got it working again last night. I found a fuse at Home Depot - didn't think Home Depot carried that type of fuse. The plug says to use a fuse rated at 125v 5amp max. I actually replaced it with a 1amp fuse. The bulb in it is 40w so 1amp will work and should be safer than the 5 amp fuse. I will check for rust and pinched cord, and check the voltages. Thanks
