Hey guy,
Great site. Looking for some ideas for a strobe light trigger. Want targets to walk into a room that is lit with regular light, activate a pressure mat that cuts out the regular light and turns on a strobe light so the "weeping angel" statue in the corner will move. I think I can macguyver something together but would love someone elses ideas or tips or something they might've done in the past so I don't totally have to reinvent the wheel.
Thanks

What you need is a dual pole dual throw relay. When the relay isn't energized (normally closed contacts) the regular lighting is on. When the relay is energized the regular lights go out and the strobe (normally open contacts) turns on. You'll need something other than a step pad, like a motion sensor, for the trigger though.
