Is there a way to Take control over these RBG Eyes

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

Sorry I don't know where to post this.  However I just got a Ghoul with RBG eyes.  And Well.  I would love to be able to control them with my RBG device... I want to control all lighting at my house.So that being said, this is my first year into RBG... I DO have a good buddy who is an electrical engineer coming over,  but any feed back would be great if someone has done it before.

 

BTW - My theory is Kids want my Candy... I want my Candy... so may the best ADULT win :).  I always have kids who won't come in, my wife doesn't find that funny... but I do.

Have your engineer buddy check what the input volts are to the LEDs and find out what volts are being used. That would help for what your options are.

It might not need an Engineer.  What powers the head?

Batteries? (count * 1.5 )

Wall wort (read the DC out part of the label)

If it has a standard lamp cord, you DO need that Guru.

3V

The probably are driving the LEDS with a very small resistor.

Get you engineers help if you want to use 12V( or 5V) from a LOR CMB24D controller

He needs help to know what to rip out, and where to hook those.

I think the goal is to control the colors, not just remote (from LOR) power. If I am wrong, and on/off is the goal, that battery eliminator from  a SINGLE cmb24 port would do the job
