  1. Powerhouse Generators are Inverter style and should work well. But like Mike said they are rather expensive.
  2. House property with a hill in front

    Can't wait to see what you come up with.
  3. Newbie using the TSO Showtime Central starter pkg.

    If it was programmed by or for LOR it most likely uses there 4 X 4 set up. http://www1.lightorama.com/4-x-4-decorating/
  4. pixcom16 e pixel rgb & superstar sequence

    From what I read it sounds as though he is doing a Matrix set. That will do animation, but for live action video would need i much tighter pixel count then i think what is expecting.
  5. Projector trigger with LOR?

    you might be able to find a projector that has some sort of serial control from what i am reading you want done. I have seen them in use they are controlled by software to select certain adjustments, like focus, size adjust, input select, etc. not sure but i have seen some projectors with 10/100 network ports as well. that might be option, but as stated before convert the videos to files and program them as normal media file with projector set up as second monitor from show control machine. this one might do the trick have to research more on the rs232 control https://www.amazon.com/EPSON-VS400-Multimedia-Projector-V11H326020/dp/B003VNKLSO/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1496003993&sr=8-1&keywords=rs232+controllable+projector
  6. Porch Light problem

    Yea already in the plans, what ever company i contract to build my house will probably hate me with all the extra's being run during framing stage. But i will probably do most of the specialty stuff after hours to save my self $. I am aware if the high/low voltage separation, i have in the past asked if anyone knew of a 20 pin male/female quick connect for high voltage but still have been unable to locate anything over 8 poles. i was thinking of running the supply electrics for mega tree to panel mounted LOR in electrical room and just have 1 or 2 connections at base. for just lights was planning on a 32 leg super strand r,g,b,w,p,o, but have since changed gears for a 32 leg round pixel tree, and i'm thinking of possible ways to do each pixel a full 360 deg x,y,&z axis maybe will come up with answer on that issue at some point. If i win the lottery i'm thing of doing a whole house control system with LOR. meaning every outlet, light fixture would be a LOR Channel. I know i will have to run relay boards for outlets, might figure out a way to do each light fixture a rgb device?
  7. Porch Light problem

    I have been thinking that when I have my house built that I would have certain outlet's and light's go to a LOR A/C controller. So they could be controlled year round. I am also thinking of pre-running all low voltage and data lines for certain aspects of how my house will be built. With the change from running A/C controllers for my plan's i will now be using RGB so changes a number of my design features as well.
  8. Power Supply Question

    I would say by looking at them and the other products the company carries these would be good for our application, as they are designed to power a bus bar pick up system for things like Radio gear, Server rack's, and even Remote Control car/plane enthusiasts for powering the 12 volt chargers for quicker charging times on their battery pack's. so they are designed for constant amp output which would mean i would put a 5 amp fuse on the board input leads myself, and maybe even fuses of varying amp's for each run of rgb's.
  9. RGB strips left out all year?

    My landlord has tried it around window A/C unit's but they pretty much all still leaked. Just not as bad. He also tried spraying the edge of my shed, it's metal sitting on a floor with plywood. It still leaks pretty bad.
  10. looking for RGB Floods Alternitives

    I was just playing around the other day and figured out that the small 150 watt hallogen flood light's that can be mounted on a outside box like security lights work very good with a 3 or 4 led square node. If I can find my camerra I will post some pictures of what I did to make it. I started the project with a set of 2 that were mounted to the side of a house as regular light's. I was just gonna throw them away, but once I looked at them I thought they might work. So Playing around I put 1 Dumb square node in each, and violo they actually work pretty well, I have them temporarily mounted on my porch just as general illumination and they work well. I have posted a photo of the fixture pre-modification. Also the nodes I used. I will update once I get a picture of the finished version as well as a break down photos. Jacob
  11. Win 10 upgrade

    I started testing programming only, not controlling lights when Microsoft first released Windows 10 to those of us that choose to be Insider's and help fine tune the system. LOR ran with zero problems. Like I said with out controlling light's but all areas of the software never had a single hick-up.
  12. No you don't plug the CCB controller into a standard light controller. Only the data connects from CCB/P controllers to any other controller. Unless you want to totally shut a CCB/P controller off.
  13. Which Drone should I get

    Yea JP7 does cost alot. Plus it leaks like a politicians mouth.
  14. Which Drone should I get

    Hey Sarge I have to agree go with the SR-71 Blackbird. Has great video cameras and can zoom in on the one pixel I seen out on your place.
