    Hi everyone, I am trying to use a picoboo to drive a 12v 5amp wiper motor and a 12v 1amp LED light. Problem I’m having is the picoboo sound is very quiet through the 8ohms speaker I’m using. I’m using a 12v 5amp power supply to the picoboo and have read somewhere that the larger the power supply...

    SOLD I bought a PicoBoo control box for my coffin and it works great but the audio is only 8bit and I don't like how it makes my zombie file sound. I have only used the triggers for 12v outputs so far and I will include the small speaker that came with my kit. Im upgrading to the PicoBoo MP3...

    I bought a PIR sensor from Ebay/aliexpress, comes with 3 wires : brown, blue and red now i want to connect it to my Picoboo FI-104S for it to activate when this is movement but i can't figure out how to connect and make it works. I have tried connecting all 3 wires in all possible ways of the...

    I'm going to build a "Monster in a box" prop this year. Actually it will be a "Monster in a Coffin" but the effect will be similar. I want to use the prop controller from Monster Guts in my title. I don't want the controller however to be triggered, but to run continuously on a loop. Fright...

    Is there a way to have an Uno run in a loop by jumping 2 connections, not by code, much the same way you can with a Picoboo? I'm wanting to run it with relays connected without a PIR and have the sequence run over and over? So basically when power is applied to the UNO it's starts playing the...

    So I'm doing a zombie fence shaker this year and it's my first-ever pneumatic prop. I got an 18gal compressor off Craigslist and will have that 50ft away so hopefully the noise doesn't ruin the rest of my scene. Connecting with a 3/8 inch hose to this flow control connector. Controlled by a...

    I can not figure out how to get the jack in the box to work with my picoboo/pneumatic. Anyone have any suggestions? I can not get the picoboo to capture the jack in the box to open at all. Thanks!

    Hey Everyone, so I am wanting to try and build an escape room for my halloween party this year. I am going to use magnetic locks with a picoboo and maybe a keypad code or a light sequence puzzle. I want it to be mostly automated once kicked off so I was trying to figure out if there was any...

    Hey Everyone! So I am doing a Ghostbusters theme this year and have a few good ideas I have already started working on. One Idea I have is to have a ghostbuster blasting at a slimer I will have flying around on some gears. My issue I am hitting is I would like to use a laser of sorts that will...

    Hey eveyone! So I am planning on building a talking skeleton in a rocking chair this year. I've bought one of these for the skull. And one of these to trigger the rocking chair, led spotlights and audio. My dilemma is that I don't want to be limited to one phrase for the skull (the song from...

    So I purchased a new solenoid from FrightProps for my small Lunger we bought from them a few years back. It is a 12v dc, was hooked up to a dual acting cylinder and a PicoBoo One. At first I had the Picoboo One doing the power for it ... but the lunger only moved inches, so I tried the power...

    we have the front end of a car and will trigger the horn and lights to come on when people walk by. My question... will a 12V 10A power supply power the 4 headlights and the horn on this car? If so, great because then I know I can use the picoboo controller I have. If not, I may need to use...

    Hey all, I have a Picoboo 104 that I got last year with a trigger from Fright Ideas and this year will be purchasing some others. But is there a way to trigger them without purchasing their triggers or motion detectors? Guess I should say, does anyone have a tutorial or info on how to wire...

    I'm planning to make a coffin prop with a lid that pushes open and closed. I'm sure there is a name for this type prop, but I don't know what it is. :) Basically, it is the coffin prop that is chained closed and the lid gets pushed out...typically with lights inside. I was wondering if there...

    Just got 3 picoBoo105 models I ordered and I hate to say that I am pretty disappointed in the sound quality. I have tried varying output levels, jostling cables, different playback programs... the playback is definitely not capturing the emotion, emphasis, and atmosphere my intended sound clips...
