    We are looking good here in central VA. Mon - High of 70 low of 52 clear skies little to no wind. Looks like it's going to be a PERFECT night for us!

    Yes, I just plugged into the step pad switch. The remote and receiver come as a pair and have to be attached to a 12v power supply and the prop you want to activate. They wire up with screw terminals. I snipped my jack off of an old power supply. Turns out that either the jack or the try me plug on mine is screwed up so I plan on bypassing the try me plug all together and just connecting right to the wires going to it.

    Nightfisher replied to a thread Electronic/Software: Remote not working anymore :( in Halloween Props
    Yea, I was thinking that too, but when I unhooked the wires coming off the receiver to the prop and touched them together, the prop would activate, meaning the wire was good. Still no idea why it would work fully plugged in by touching the wires, but not from the remote unless only plugged in halfway. Makes no sense, but there you have it. Now that I know there is issue with the try me plug I plan on just bypassing it and hard wiring to the receiver wires.

    This year it was our front door. Too white, was driving me nuts so I made a fake door to cover it. Just a tip on the cords - cover them with a sprinkling of dry leaves. Hides them well and the leaves add to the creepiness of the graveyard.

    Thanks for the replies. Just got it figured out. I was looking in the wrong place. It was not the receiver that was the issue, it was the 3.5mm plug going into the spider that the receiver plugs into. Probably corrosion or internal damage of some kind. I've made a temporary fix to get me through and after Halloween I'll probably direct wire the receiver to the prop and bypass the try me/step pad plug all together. Here is what I have. The wireless receiver. Pretty nifty little device that...

    This is where I bought the original led which had a little magnet backing to hold it on to things. Now they use clips, because the tiny magnets are a hazard to small children. I mounted the led in the base of the head, where the pvc pipe enters the head. So I just pop the head off to turn on the led. This year I'm wiring an led into it with a battery connection so I don't have to pop the head off to turn the light on and off. ...

    Same one I used first go round. lol The mice found them to be delicious, even coated with wood stain. lol The polymer clay seeds look just as good, but were a lot harder to get glued on. Had to use gorilla glue.

    Those real pumpkin seeds? I used them on mine and every single one was eaten by mice within a month or two of storage. Wound up making fake ones from clay and no further problems. Just a heads up.

    Well, just had to order a new relay for our remote control jumping spider. Was working intermittently when I set it up to test so I thought the remote might need batteries. Still not right so I put my testor on the relay to see what was happening. Got my 12v going in but nothing coming out when the button is pushed. Just a click. Tried different positions NC, NO, COM and I get no voltage whatsoever in an position. Just a click. Always something.

    Simplest that was a hit? Window boards. Changed the whole feel of our display and it's what gets commented on more than anything else. Not to shabby for a few pieces of foam hacked up and hung over the windows. My MOST commented on is also the most complicated though. Cauldron creep.

    Finally got some decent pics of this year's haunt. I used green LEDs on a stake behind each bush, a green fire and ice behind the coffin, a yellow rgb flood uplighting the front of the coffin, a RGB LED hidden behind my resurrecting skeleton's leg that shines up to the witch's face, an orange LED on the front inside of the witch hut's roof to illuminate the potions and spell book (used black spray paint to "frost" the LED bulb some to reduce it's brightness), a green CFL in the cauldron in the...

    The finishing touches. Made fake strap hinges and hung our talking skull over the top. He is barely audible after several years of use, but the animation still works great. I'll be keeping an eye out for a good door knocker to add to this.

    Stopped by to say I love the rotted pumpkin head candy holder you're making - the icky rubber "throat" will be great - very unsettling to feel when the kids put their hands in! Also the spindly legs on your spider really ups the arachnophobia creep-out factor. Very cool.
