    Default A little advise needed

    Hi Guys
    ive attached a picture of a board setup that im hoping to do for Halloween, and im just wondering being new to all this, will it actually work?

    my idea of thinking

    the servo controller pca9685 will drive the servos which in turn will provide movement to my props

    the 74hc595 will give me the extra channels needed for the lights (5 lights for the props and 5 for atmospheric lights) i know i haven't included the right amount of relays/outputs but wanted to make sure before i went any further

    the relays ive used are set as singles and arent dimmable (something that i want) but couldn't find the right board in the software and the lights i will be using are dumb single colour led strips on 2 channels led spots on 2 channels an led strobe on 1 channel
    and for the prop lights probably cut length leds stips at 30cms

    thanks in advance
    Andy

    You are missing the grounds going to the SSRs.

    Oversight on my behalf, I was looking for an SSR Board (more than one) but there wasn’t one in the software so put them in for show and a general is it right, still looking to use that 12 channel ssr I pm’d you about the other day,
    Just wanted to see if I was ‘on track’ with my setup so to speak
