That one went kind of crazy. Every TV station in Alabama showed it along with the ATL stations here. Put it in the thread because it had some fast arch action and also kind of a twinkle effect at the first.

 

These were just really heavy duty arches that looked good. Nope. No other color but cool white. Ok by me. They were just real easy to program over my incan arches to these when I grouped them.  Just would hate to either have to buy more pixel strips to replace all of them or go with 3. Don't want to do either :-(

I don't have any but I do have a question.  It appears that you have "hacked" those so that you can control them rather than using the built in sequence.  Is it possible to do the same with other Gemmy products like the C9s, icicles, or lawn stake items?

Ted,

I am no expert on these, but at least on these strip... yes. They are hackable. I used a e682 controller from http://www.sandevices.com/ . I am pretty sure the GE Color Effects types are. It really depends on the chip set. I would also check out doityourselfchristmas.com as well. Pretty much a DIY form with lots of hacks listed :-)

I'm a member there (DIYC) too but I haven't seen much about the gemmy lightshow products.  I did see where one guy posted that they were not hackable.

 

Did you just cut off the original controller box and then connect the strips to the e682 controller?

Sure did;

Go look at these - https://www.youtube.com/user/BurtonChristmasLites

Look for the ones that are from this year. All of those vids the arches are the Flextech Strips using a Sandevices e682 controller. Loved how they turned out. I may possibly paint the pvc pipe black next year. However with this setup my mini trees lit up the white in the strip itself when not in use. In some ways...that is ok. Really pops when I went from black to the arches.
