What's new for 2015? Well here are a few things, but were not giving it all away :)

BIG RED BUTTON!

Have you seen when a town or theme park does their Christmas lighting ceremony? Seems there is always a pretty lady, or cute kid that after a energetic countdown presses a big red button and all the lights come on at once and the crowd goes nuts. I've always wanted to do that. Have a big red button for when the family and neighbors come over for the big first show of the season. 

So the other year I bought a big 100mm red button typically used in arcade machines. Last year pixels took way more time than I expected so I didn't get around to figuring out how to start the show with a big red button, but turns out it was super easy.

RGB Floods: Installed 3 RGB floods on porch, and tested their performance with extension cords and I'm very happy that I'm going to be able to put RGB floods pretty much anywhere I want. Planning on buy another set of 8 plus controller during the Light-O-Rama March sale (might happen in April). I bought my first set last year, but was too busy to put them up. Plus I loved playing with them in my office that I wasn't motivated to move them outside right away. I plan on these being year round lights. Red for Valentine's day, Green for St. Patricks, etc.


February 2015: One of our planned additions for 2015 is two Mega Wreaths. These will replace smaller wreaths that I had on both sides of the house. The old wreaths fit in the holes of these new 48" wreaths. Click [here] for details on how I did my Mega Wreaths. Each wreath has 125 individually programmable pixel LED lights.



January 2015: Yeah, all the lights are down and put away. Feeling ahead of schedule now because I've also fixed a few strings and 5 snowflakes. Also, I've put in all my pre-orders for next season. Going to do more with RGB pixels, hoping for more deer, plus an upgrade for the wreaths, some RGB floods, plus who knows what else.
