    Hey! We're real close to you then. We're in the Reserve at Glenross subdivision off of Cheshire rd near 23.

    We're on Ballater dr just past the bend. It's probably the best stretch of the show.

    I like how OP said he doesnt have the dedication to do a single home display, so he goes out and hand makes 160 controllers that connect to 160 wifi connections and then talks to the main control module to play a sequence.
    2016 - 32 LOR Channels - Roughly 5,000 Lights - 2 Sequenced Songs
    2017 - 64 LOR Channels - 9,373 Lights - 4 Sequenced Songs
    2018 - 64 LOR Channels - New House - Total Redesign - 9,011 Lights - 5 Sequenced Songs (Interactive)
    2019 - 80 LOR Channels - Expecting 15,000+ Lights - 6-8 Sequences Songs (Interactive)

    That's the irony of the while thing :-)
    Luckily I got to do most of the work when it was warm instead of now. Also everyone else paid for it and next year will be very low effort.
    For the wifi part, I had the Arduinos setup with a captive portal for WiFi setup, so I didn't have to collect 160 ssids and passwords.

    That's what really opened the floodgates for me. Then distance didn't matter. Originally I was going to shoot wifi down the street to catch them.
    It also required me to write the code to take the udp E131 and send it out in small chunks over tcp. Good fun :-)
