    Default Custom Controllers for Wireframes.

    If anyone needs a controller or help making your own let me know. I do everything by hand.

    This is a 20 year old controller that was all breadboard and relays, when I redone my display the 4 channel chase was out so i threw in the 50 buck chaser from Amazon as a quick fix.



    This is my current controller. it cost 58 bucks and does 4 channel chase, 2 channel flip/flop for elves and horse head, and 3 channel with return so 1-2-3-2-1 and repeat.



    If you dream up a pattern I can make it go blink blink like you want it to or help you do it yourself.

    Thanks Yellowdog, I am not the man just a guy who had 25k lights on his house 20 years ago and did it all by hand. NO ONE had anything like what I had back then so everything WAS SECRET, now that everything is out there on how to make stuff, I figured I can help people make their own, or build it for them if they dream something up but don't want to rely on Vixen, or xLights to get some simple animations done.

    I was thinking of building my own 4 channel chase controller until I found this one. I was using LEDs so the low current rating was not an issue. At $45 it was worth it.

    Wood guy you can build your own 4 channel chase for 17 bucks using 2 amp solid state relays. Just so you know for the future!

    I saw this thread a few days ago. had always wanted to play with an Arduino. ordered nano and other components and received them already. took me about 45 minutes to get it going. We need some wireframe controllers for our park display. these are the answer. Thanks for sharing the idea and the help you provided though PMs.
