LOR and LightKeeper Pro

Can anyone verify if it's safe (or not) to use the lightkeeper pro with a string of lights connected to an LOR channel, via the method where you remove a bulb and plug the socket into the LKP, then use the clicker to 'revive' the string?

I'm a little paranoid about blowing triacs (or worse) and have never done it. Just wanted to check if I had cause to worry...

Well, I cannot speak to its safety, but I have done it with no ill effects.

Of course with my track record around here lately...

It may work but I would not do it. It seems like the high voltage that it send could damage things.

Thanks-- just wanted to make sure I wasn't being overcautious.

I used it once on my icicle lights not really thinking of the LOR feeling the spike. I fixed my problem without harming the LOR but I'll probably not do that again. Next time Ill by pass the LOR with a temporary Extention cord. :shock:

Boy, it sounds like I got lucky. Dan mentioned thousands of volts from one of those things...

I'm definitely not using it plugged into my LOR controller again.

Glad you brought this up, Tim!
