  1. Thoughts about Chinese LED PAR's

    General Halloween
    I've been looking at LED PAR lights on Ali Express, and I'd like to hear about people's experiences with these lights. I'd like to get some RGB LED lights I can control with DMX. Of course, for the price, I don't expect professional quality lights that can handle rough transportation, they will...

    Halloween Props
    Executive summary: run a simple, safe, local WiFi solution for broadcasting a color picker. I'd think this thread would help a huge group on this forum. You're driving by my display, and you see a sign that says "Pick a color..." and you can bring up a color picker on your device to choose...

  8. Lighting: Question about RGB bulbs

    Halloween Props
    Does anyone have any experience with these types of LED RGB bulbs? If so, can you tell me how they look for lighting props. Are the colors vibrant or kind of washed out? Also, how is the brightness? Most I find seem to be 3 Watts. Are 3 Watt RGB LEDs bright enough? How does a 3 Watt LED compare...
  9. Lighting: Cheap 3W RGB Spot Lights

    Has anyone been using these cheap Chinese 3W RGB spot lights? How did they hold up? I bought a few of them and plan to try them in this holder I found at Big Lots for $4. The lights fit in the fixture very, very, snug and would think will keep the weather at bay. I figured for $8.xx total...
  10. Lighting: Looking for Help with LED Lighting

    Halloween Props
    Hello all, looking for some advice with LED landscape lighting. I see 12V and 120V. The 12 doesn't appear to have many options in watts, but how many watts are needed? Seems like you might have more control with more lights lower wattage, but if you need a longer throw or are competing against...

    I am considering adding RGB controlled black strips to my Halloween fence. Cutting the strips at 2' - 3' long and attaching them vertically on each post (pvc pipe). Has anyone done this? Thoughts on a matrix (of sorts, i.e. scrolling words, etc.). I saw a post on the Christmas site and planned...

    Halloween Props
    In the past, we have used LED spotlights for the majority of the lighting in our haunt. This year I used RGB LED modules with controllers to get more control over the lighting. Just thought I would share a video showing the setup if anyone is interested. It has been working out great so far! :)
