    Does anyone know what type of LED they are, if I can cut off the controller for these lights and use the E682 to control them that would be awesome and a huge money saver.

    Those are a Gemmy product, afaik. As of two years ago, they were not hackable. I don't know if that has changed, but I suspect that Gemmy isn't going to put a WS2811 or other smart pixel in its products. You could use it with Renard.

    No, unfortunately. The actual show is stored in each led, and the control box just sends out specific commands telling the leds which show to start.

    Yeah, I cracked open the controller and saw that it only has 3 wires to the light, So I thought "Yeah ws2811s " I put my meter on the power leads and it measured 48vdc , so now I'm not so sure..
    Either way I like these lights so I will just use them to go on my back patio for my annual Christmas party.
