    Thanks for stopping by. If you would like to find out more information about The House Of Lights, you can check out our website at www.HallumsHouseOfLights.com. In 2008 we are going to have 224 channels controlled with LOR. The installation of the lights began the end of September. In 2008, we are going to have a little over 155,000 lights in clear, red, and green. Thanks for stopping by and we look forward to visiting with you.

  1. Hello all your NY PC Members. I will be flying to NYC on Thursday with my wife to celebrate New Years Eve in Time Square. I have read about the Dyker Heights lights and I wanted to swing by on Dec 30th. Are there any PC members living in Dyker Heights in Brooklyn, NY? I would like to get a little more information about the best place to go etc.... Hope to meet some other PC members.. Merry Christmas. Matt
  2. Hey Everyone, I have a question. Where are you guys getting the Illuminations Epcot version? I have check Walmart.com an Itunes. An I looking in the wrong place? Thanks.
  3. I had a similar problem to this a couple years ago. I purchased some line conditioners and they really helped. They are pretty cheap and I placed them on the power cord to my computer as well as the power cord to my transmitter. Might be something you want to consider.
  4. I have never used blue lights, but I have the same problem with my red and green bulbs. I purchased about 6000 of the red plastic caps this year. I have them all in my display. Some of the plastic caps have been in the display for three years and they are still looking great. The funny thing is I could have spent alot less and just purchased new lights but I use the caps on my wire trees & window frames. Places that it is a pain to replace the entire set of lights. Hope this helps..... Matt
  5. Hey Everyone, I was contacted by my city to warp over 200 trees in lights. They are wanting commercial grade lights, but mentioned something about the strands where you can actually remove several of the lights from the strand and the remaining bulbs will stay lit. I think they might be called StayLit bulbs? I have only found the StayLit bulbs in pre-lit christmas trees. Does anyone know where I can purchase 100 ct mini light stands like this? Thanks in advance and have a great day. Matt
  6. Hey Tim, Yep, the plans this year do include wrapping all the trees with red, green, and clear lights. I will probably be doing that next weekend or the following weekend. I rent a lift and pick it up on Friday afternoon. I start installing lights Friday night, all day Sat and Sunday and usually finish Sunday night..... I try and put if off as long as possible to keep the squirrels from eating the wires. The only problem is I have to get the trees done early because I drive the lift around in the yard. Once I have the trees completed I can then set up the rest of the display pieces th
  7. We are back with a Computerized display this year. Have been testing things in storage and getting everything ready to install. I would normally have already started but I am not adding much new stuff this year, so everything is pretty much build and just needs set into place. Will start actually hanging lights next weekend. It will be here before we know it....
  8. How is everyone doing around here? Well, after no computerized display last year, IT IS BACK this year!!! Most of you are aware of the traffic and neighbor issues I had in the past. We are excited about the display this year, but also trying to go about things a little different. Be proactive.... How many of you have hired or checked into hiring an off-duty police officer or a security guard to help direct traffic etc... for the computerized display? My police dept. does have a program where you can hire an off-duty officer, but its $37.00 per hour with a two officer minimum. So we wo
  9. Thanks for your replies. I have plans for next years display. The Computerized display will be back and larger than last year. I had better get to work on the display. I wan to work on some animation and animatronics.
  10. I have done some projects with motors, but this year I am really hoping to go big with animation and motors. In the past I have used DC Gear motors from Granger. You can purchase different motors with different RPM's for whatever project you are working on. They will also handle pretty much any weight you need. I have used about 5 of these gear motors and I have been very happy with them. You might be spending $25 to $75 depending on the gear motors. I know many of the commercial animated display makers us the gear motors as well. Hope this helps. Have a Happy New Year!!! Matt
  11. Hey Everyone, Thanks for you interest. I am sorry, but I have not been around PC as much as I would like. I am hoping to get back on here and more involved. This year I have a display, its just not computerized. I decided not to go computerized for a few reasons. Due to my very busy work schedule this year, I did not have time to start putting up the display in September. In my free time I have been working on next years display. Next year is going to be better than last year and I have been working on those plans. I have been talking to one of my neighbors and I will be Synchron
  12. They do have some great songs for use in a Christmas Display. I used several of there songs last year and everyone really enjoyed them. The songs bring something a little different to the table. Have a good one. Matt
  13. Sounds good. Thanks for letting me know. I am glad they arrives and I was able to help. Have a good weekend... Matt Hallum
  14. Thanks Streetrodder, I really appreciate it. I have been helped by others on PC and it is only right to return the favor whenever I can help. I had a member ship me over 300 boxes of red minis last year. If it were not for that, my display would have not been complete this last year. We do have a great group of folks on here. Have a great week... Matt
  15. Just wanted to let you know that youtube killed some of your videos :( I'm just waiting for them to kill mine one of these days. sigh Love your videos though, very cool, and I love the christian theme.
