    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

    Blow Mold Problem

    The fuse is in the blow mold male plug, not one of my controllers. The blow mold is static, so it is not connected to a LOR controller. Sorry for the confusion. The light socket is in the flame part of the candle. It looks to be specially made by the blow mold manufacturer. (General Foam - I think) This is the blow mold. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00851KC0Y/ref=s9u_simh_gw_i2?ie=UTF8&fpl=fresh&pd_rd_i=B00851KC0Y&pd_rd_r=e10d1a51-c884-11e7-9821-4b13dd402765&pd_rd_w=baQYa&pd_rd_wg=AIyYz&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=&pf_rd_r=FRXBA57NJ4YA180MQ99J&pf_rd_t=36701&pf_rd_p=1cf9d009-399c-49e1-901a-7b8786e59436&pf_rd_i=desktop

    Blow Mold Problem

    It is not a C7 bulb. It is a standard size light bulb, like you would put into a light fixture in your home. I think it is either a 40w or a 60w bulb.

    Blow Mold Problem

    Hi, just finished setting up yesterday. I am having a problem with a blow mold candle it won't light up. I checked to be sure the extension cord is working and that the bulb is good. It must be the fuse in the plug. I haven't had a chance to check it with a multi-meter yet. I have replaced the fuse once before with the spare fuse that came with it, so I no longer have any spares. I am not sure where I can get a new fuse. Radio Shack would have been a good choice, but, I don't think there are any in my area any more. Does anyone know where I might look for a replacement fuse? The fuse has blown for a reason, any idea how I can figure out what is causing the fuse to blow? Thanks Jerry

    Only half of the string is lighting up

    You said these are full wave, so these are LED strings, right? if so, you should get the LED Keeper pro. The Light Keeper Pro is for incandescent strings. https://www.ledkeeper.com/home/ Jerry

    Holiday Coro sale

    I ordered some stuff from Holiday Coro on the first day of their pre-sale. I have my order already. They must have filled it from their stock.
