Would It Look Ok To Have Strobe Lights Constantly On?


Recommended Posts

I can't sync all my lights to music this year, so I'm not putting nearly as many lights up (but still plenty...!!), but I really like the strobes. I have 30 of them total (15 of them flash 3-4 times per second, and 15 of them flash once per second), and I was wondering what y'all thought of keeping them constantly on. I would have them high up in a tree in my backyard, so not too close to the front where the rest of the display is. With a music sequence, I used all of the strobes, and they came on during certain parts of the song (like most displays). Anyway, would it look ok to have some strobe lights constantly on throughout the night? And if so, would it be better to use the slower ones?

Thanks!

You might want to consider a Mr Christmas unit there pretty cheap

Personally, I think strobes are distracting and should only be used accent something, like the end of a song. The idea of a Mr. Christmas controller might help you make it random enough to not be distracting.

I agree with everybody else, strobes are most effective with limited use. I use 8 channels to control 8 different strobe zones and with a show that lasts 31 min. one or more zones are only on for about a min. All zones, (525 strobes) are on for a total of 19 seconds, the majority of that for the grand finally.
