    Default Wirelessly controlled LED lights?

    No controllers except your wireless computer?

    Intriguing, but also rather expensive...

    Go for it, Scott !!

    Stand in front of your display for 4 + hours every night making it go "Blinky Flash", and let us know how well it worked.

    Now that is the best thing anyone has said to me today. Except Deb said I smelled like a skunk after I welded all day.

    This brings on an interesting thought for how we could retro our LOR systems to allow some kind of general iPAD or iTOUCH control of the whole who. t would be really fun to bring people into the driveway, start up a song, and let them push buttons to kick off pre-selected routines.

    In a similar regard, I really enjoyed the couple at the Convention that demonstrated their MIDI keyboard that ran their lights. But I could see some kind of GUI on the iTouch/iPad that forces preset routines to kick off back in the main PC. Thus giving the sense of controlling the lights.
    Thanks,

    Denny,

    It's been done by several people.

    LOR control using Iphone, Blackberry or mobile internet device:

    http://lightorama.mywowbb.com/view_t...highlight=miip

    and for Vixen software:

    http://www.doityourselfchristmas.com...ad.php?t=12794

    William was working on an application where visitors could dial a telephone number and select a sequence by pressing the correct number, the DTMF tones would then start that sequence. Some others also did this as well.

    and since my first year of using LOR in 2007, I used my HP iPAQ hx4700 pocket PC running a program to remote in to my desk top PC LOR software and start different sequences (or the hardware utility) while setting up the display for testing purposes.

    and quite a few people have different visitor buttons (most use brightly colored large [ 2" or so ] from commercial video games to activate triggers starting different songs.

    At the 2009 Carolina Convention, William controlled the lights of my whole wireframe demonstration from the back of the room with a handheld wireless transmitter which started a sequence to run the lights on the particular wireframe I was demonstrating.

    I used push buttons this year at the convention to do the same thing (since William and his wireless controller was late arriving.

    Lots of ways! So it is very do-able!

    GO FOR IT!

    X-10 makes a wireless remote that will trigger a momentary set of contacts on a garage door opener module, which feed into your LOR input board. Very Very simple hookup. My x-10 wireless remote can control up to 16 modules or 16 sequences.

    Denny, if ya want a demo let me know I can stop by and hook ya up.

    I am working on having the lights controlled by thought alone. You think red, they turn red.
