    Default Need help with "Blinkers"

    I'm planning for next year and am looking for an off the shelf product that I can plug an entire string of lights into and have the whole string blink in unision. I've been looking at relays but can't figure out how to plug my lights into them. Does such an animal exist, am I dreaming or does it have to be custom built?

    Blinkers used to be common when I was a kid. They are still available on eBay. Check out auction 320462404423, 230227710389 and auction 360217069421. Just paste these numbers (one set at a time) into an eBay search box and the auction will be found for you.
    Thanks,

    You might also consider something light this. Will control one channel, with speed control as to how fast you want them to blink. On the same web site, under Accessories, Lori also has 3 and four channel controllers for fading (with speed control) between 3 or 4 separate items.
