  1. OK...decision made....  I am going to be selling off a majority of my lights and controllers.

     

    I have 2 mega trees that I can sell off as a whole unit.  48 strings of M5 LED 100 count strings, 20 foot pole, winch, base ring, weatherproof box for holding the 2 LOR PC controllers inside, and a 3D star topper frame.

     

    Leaping arches (6) with 3 LOR PC controllers.

     

    "Candy Cane" sign frames

     

    and about 10,000 incans (most new (never used) some only 1 season old.

     

    2 (two) LOR Cosmic Color Floods.

     

    LOR 16 channel 30 amp controller with MP3.

     

    PM me with offers if interested.

  2. I will look up contact details when I get home and fill you in. MIIP (pronounced MEEP) is a program developed by Bob O out of Sr Louis more than a few years ago. Show is run from PC and uses LOR. You set up your schedule in LOR as usual but the shows are handled by MIIP. MIIP then controls LOR by telling LOR which song to play. People can go to MIIP on their smart phones while watching your show and change the rotation of the songs by "voting" the song up or down in rotation. I get MANY positive comments about that ability every year. I have been using MIIP for 3 or 4 years now.

  3. I am using MIIP. Developed by BobO (member here) and displays show times...schedule of songs, (currently 28 songs in my show), AND allows viewers to move a song up in the rotation via their smart phone. Prooving to be a popular aspect to the show.

    It also links to a map to show location of show.

    You can go to. WAGNER-LIGHTS.COM (Yes..use the hyphen) to see how it looks.

  4. Every year I have light string bitten through by squirrles and rabbits. This year only took 2 days before I had to repair LED light strings bitten clean through. Seems the squirrles think the rectifier (or whatever the "bobble" is) on the string looks like a nut. Aggrivating to say the least.

  5. Well, time is coming.....   Have had 3 angioplasties and stints installed over the years and now I am going in on Monday for a Triple bypass.

     

    I do not know what the future holds but I have been giving serious thought to winding down my display.

     

    IF that happens, I would have about a dozen controllers up for sale and some mega tree assemblies.

     

    Just wanted to give those in SE michigan some heads up on this as if it does happen...would happen in the next couple of months.

     

    We need to see what kind of restrictions I wil be under physically after the surgury.

     

    Will keep you posted.   

     

    (Fred, tried to call you to give you first dibs on things but your number has changed.  You sold me a controller a while back....wanted to repay the courtesy)

  6. I have had to "SLIGHTLY" bend out the metal tabs inside the sockets in order for them to make contact with the strobe. The strobe bottoms out against the socket before the contact at the base of the strobe reaches it's contact point inside the socket. As stated before...make sure line us not plugged in when you so this.

  7. I did have to shop around to acquire enough sets to outline the yard. I have each color on a seperate channel. With 15 channels: channels #1, #6, and #11 are red... channels #2, #7 and #13 are yellow...and so on.

    I did not have to take plastic "bulbs" apart to do this but the bases for the bulb have to open. The tabs used to hold them shut DO break sometimes but 2 out if 3 still hold it shut. Better to bring to room temp before fiddling with them. One base I broke all 3 tabs. Green duct tape works well and NO ONE notices.

  8. Have already done just that about 4 or 5 seasons ago.

    U have the same pathway lights. Took out the old wiring and made my own wiring harness. I used 15 channels to make for a longer chase which is evident in the video.

    I used SPT2 wire. Ran 15 strands around the perimiter of my lawn. Used Vampire C7 sockets at 30 foot intervals so there is only 4 or 5 lamps on each channel. Started subsequent light placements at 2 foot intervals (30 feet between each socket but offset by 2 feet for each channel) the result is a length of pathway lights on 15 seperate curcuits. I used zip ties to bundle the strands together and they do make a rather large "ganglion" or wires but it is very managable. Easy to do but lots of SPT2 wire.
