  1. They claim to be IP68 which is suitable for continuous immersion in water. We'll see how they hold up. I'm going to test them for some time before I go out and buy a ton for my roof line. I'm also worried about how they will handle the UV rays since I live in Florida. The amplifier seems like the best bet for my roof line, however I want to get these on the boat for a trip this week and don't have time to order those. Do you know of any other ways to have them all work off the same remote? I was thinking about just cutting the IR cable and running some cat 5 and tying them all to the s
  2. I just checked and it's working off of IR not RF; however, I ask this question not just for use on my boat which is a shorter distance, but I'm also thinking of using these on my house where the distance would be much greater.
  3. I purchased 6 - 5m RGB LED 5050 strip lights. I want to add them to my boat which obviously has a 12v system. The controller they came with has a remote with an IR input. Can anyone tell me how I could most easily use a single remote to control all 6 strips of lights. The strip lights have 4 inputs 12V+, R,G,B. Thank You for any help!!!

  5. Thank You! Switching over to LED is going to be an expensive ordeal!
  6. Sure, I've been looking into also getting some RGB strip lights. Ideally I want to run the strips along my gutters and then just leave them up year round. Any suggestions? A few things that seem to be a problem is that most manufactures say they will get destroyed by the sunlight within a year. I found a couple that say they can hold up, but not sure I trust it. I was also thinking about using some tape to cover up each light, and then paint the rest with the same white I just had my house/gutters painted in to make them harder to notice the rest of the year. I still haven't finishe
  7. Ideally each bulb individually controlled, but other wise a net that has RGB led bulbs. I'm not looking for 3 plugs. Something like what you see on this page: http://www.alibaba.com/product-gs/531112539/Hot_Item_Chrismas_decoration_RGB_led.html
  8. Can anyone tell me where I can find a good source for RGB Net lights?
  9. I just ran them around the trees with 100 ct string lights. The key is to not pull the strings tight, you want to leave slack and place them up and down as you work your way around the tree so the lights don't just look like a line. Some times I also just throw the lights up and over the trees. I'm not stingy with the lights so it may take more lights the way I do it.
  10. No snow... private road in HOA... I want people to be able to see the lights going across the street. It's for a river effect. For the past few years we have done it on one side of the road across three yards. This year I'm trying to get some neighbors across the road to join in on the river.
  11. Does anyone have any ideas for how to run lights on the ground across a street so they won't break? A couple of Ideas I have are: Acrylic Sheets: Run sheets of acrylic with channels cut into it. Seems like this will be very expensive Acrylic tubes: I think these will get knocked around and might not be as strong as just cutting channels. Sheets of plywood: Similar to the acrylic idea but flipped so that the channel is exposed to the cars. Would Need to make sure the channel is deep enough so that when the cars drive over it the tires do not impact the lights. The problem with th
  12. I'm sure they would say something... but it takes a couple of notices before anything happens
