    Hi all- first time poster here. I searched on flickering lights, but couldn't find anything flood light related.

  4. General Halloween
    A few years ago when I attended Nightmare New England (pro haunt attraction), they lit up a section of trees with a very cool lighting effect. I'll briefly describe it but I doubt I'll be able to find the device that produced it. It would shoot random white points of light at the canopy and then...

    I am hosting a "funeral home" themed party this year and I typically decorate each room in the house as though it is part of a haunted house walk-through. I am hoping to convert the whole kitchen into a morgue/embalming room. It really would be cool to make the entire room flicker with a...

    Currently most of my lighting is driven by low voltage power or by 110 AC. However I was wondering if anyone has tried using mostly solar lights. I see advantages and disadvantages of each but I wanted to start a discussion. Powering the lights with Low voltage or AC requires many more wires...

    In the past the front row of my graveyard was a series of dollar store coolers turned upside down. For some I put the lid on the bottom for a bit more decoration. They hid the lights that illuminated the rows behind them. The trouble with these came at night because they were essentially dead...

    Don't want to buy an expensive control box. I have bought a few outdoor motion lights before and wired them to plug in the wall, using the light sockets to plug props. But is there another way, just as cheap, to have a motion detection device and an accurate timer? The motion light I made...
