Moving heads under eaves facing audience

For those of you who use moving heads under your eaves or facing your audience were you happy with the results? I have four 105w mini heads that I will be using. These will not put out a beam like the big heads but wash fairly well and I think they may look good facing the audience. I am just curious before I start learning a different method of sequencing for the heads and putting in the time. I have had the heads for 2 years and had planned on selling them but the sale never went through so I thought I might as well sequence them.

I also have two of the bigger 230w heads but have yet to do much with them. Maybe this year I will finally be motivated to sequence them too.

I have six of the 60W lights under my eaves, spaced about three feet apart. This was the third year and they have survived the cold and moisture well. They get a bit of wind blown splatter but they are still working fine, except for the one I dropped. 

I use them to scan the guests and project the shape gobos on the ground.

They work fine from a dedicated LOR adaptor, but are a bit tedious to sequence.

I am very happy with them and they are a part of my display now. I have some videos posted in the Christmas display section. If you would like to see pictures of the mounting etc let me know

Pictures would be great Phil. I will take a look at the videos. I will be using mine through the dmx port on one of my Falcons. Thanks

WYZE CAMS ROCK! Lol sorry Phil lol I had to.
I’ve got 4 of their cams. lol

I may jump into moving heads next year. But kudos to those of you that already have it figured out. A few my close friends on here are taking the jump this year. So I’m sure I will not be far behind. Lol maybe next year.... I’ll most likely be in another house so everything New this this year is going to be yard only additions. Let us know how it all works out.... would love some videos of peoples yards who use them... the only live ones that I have seen are the Tom BetGeorge ones.
