    Default Light-O-Rama – It's Not Just for Christmas

    In previous posts, I've often mentioned using Light-O-Rama hardware and software for Halloween displays. The following video isn't so much a tutorial as an introduction that may tempt some of you to add computerized control to your attractions. I've used only the company's most basic equipment but have been very pleased with the results. If you need to synchronize lights or other on-off props, with or without sound, LOR is great – as long as you give yourself time to become familiar with the software.

    This is on my wish list! Gotta save up for it, though. So expensive! But it looks so fun! And the program looks simple/easy enough to understand.

    A couple times I've bought extra controllers for a Halloween display and then re-sold them on Ebay to people setting up lighting displays for Christmas. The controllers hold their value.

    Nice video and great job on the explanation and uses for the controllers. I've been using LOR for about 10 years now. I use them in my Halloween and Christmas shows... For Halloween I have a network set up to light up my tombstones in sync with music, flash flood lights to create a lightning effect and I have one controller set for stand alone and it controls rope lights in a dark tunnel to make the tunnel appear to spin.
    There are only 10 kinds of people in this world... those that read binary and those that don't.

    By chance do you have any photos or a video of the tunnel effect? I need some ideas for this year.

    I didn't get very good video of the tunnel but here is a link... the tunnel starts at 45 seconds in.

    Tell me about it.... We have had a light-o-rama for serveral years now maybe close to 10? We have used it both for Halloween and Christmas. Bought the setup used, controller (16 channels), cords, software everything but a laptop. I can't remember if it came with an AM transmitter or if I picked it up seperately, but boy did I learn a lot that year. Honestly figuring out the AM transmitter was the hardest. Later we upgraded to an FM transmitter which I also picked up somewhere used, much, much easier than AM. Anyhow fast forward to 2 years ago. The controller is no longer working properly, if I had to take a guess I'd say a couple of the relays are no longer working. I'm not really comfortable replacing relays that are soldered onto a circuit board. I'm not really excited with the prices I see on E-bay for controllers, so if someone has a source for a circuit board, or used controller, or knows some place I can send it to be repaired that would be very much appriciated.
    Thanks,
