Inflatables during the show

I have about 8 large inflatables that are part of my show.  In thinking through my show, I am going to have about 45 minutes of songs. During the shows, I was going to have my inflatables go off during the show.  Then, while on intermission, all lights and all inflatables will be on.

 

I was going to reserve 4 channels to spread out the inflatables but I need the channels for the show.  So I am trying to think of an economical way to turn a light outlet on and off at scheduled time with no light o rama equpment.  I was thinking of using two Belkin Wemo light switches for $50 each and have them scheduled to go off at show times.  Then plug all inflatables into the two outlets which should have enough amp capacity.

 

$100 is ok of a price, but I was wondering if anyone knows of better ways to do this.  Thanks everyone.

don't need to add new lights.  Just cut the wire for the lights where it comes out of the blower, add a vampire plug to in and then run it to an LOR dongle. 

I never knew "vampire plugs" existed--thanks for this!
