    Halloween Props
    Hi all, With the help of advice I've found around here I've managed to remove some motion detectors from items, but it's usually hit or miss: sometimes the simple route of connecting wires works, sometimes it doesn't. Right now I'm trying to remove the motion sensor from a "motion maker"...

    Halloween Props
    While testing our motion sensors, we discovered that they had too wide a field of vision. in other words, the sensor would detect motion from a very wide angle, which was not desireable for our needs. So, we came up with a simple, cheap solution. You can see the whole thing in our video...

    Halloween Props
    We've built a number of scares over the years, each one capable of being triggered remotely with a simple push-button control.
