    wifi mesh system

    with Zigbee and Bluetooth they are an interesting option. If they could be powered from POE I'd be seriously interested as a solution. Everything I buy now is POE if it can be.

    Acrow Prop for Megatree Pole

    Props will usually have bolt holes in the plates at top and bottom, probably just hammer drill 4 holes and use dynabolts (masonry anchor, or sleeve anchor for non Australians) into the portable hole. can just undo the nuts each year to remove for storage. Sounds like a good idea you have come up...

    wifi mesh system

    If you have the option, run ethernet cables to each Wifi location. Using wifi to connect to each unit in most cases will at least half your wifi speed, as it uses the other half as a backhaul between devices. Some work around this other ways, but 90%+ this will be the case. Other than that mesh...

    Acrow Prop for Megatree Pole

    As for the prop, it would work well I'd imagine. Not sure if the tripod stand they sell would be strong enough to support it, but might be fine if you used strong guide wires from the top down to solid attachment points. The top plate should make attaching a topper to.

    Acrow Prop for Megatree Pole

    My tree is made from 100mm x 100mm square tube, 4mm thick walls, and 9mtrs tall. It is hinged at the ground and then attaches to a 90 degree internal corner where 2 eaves meet. Other than the eave attachment, it honestly doesn't need a single guide wire as it doesn't move. I've stuck 3 on it to...

    Ray Wu shipping delay?

    Also depends on what you have ordered. If you ask for standard items and confirm they are in stock they can ship straight away. Usually it's only one item holding up the order. If you order custom spaced icicles or such then it will take time obviously. Sounds like the Holiday is the main...

    Who's still doing their display in COVID Victoria?

    I've decided that at this point I'm just putting up the matrix and that's it. Scroll a message to apologise and tell people we will be back next year bigger than ever. Very sad making that decision, but don't want to upset my neighbours by attracting lots of people at this time.

    Impressed with displays in Melbourne’s East

    Hello, Thanks for the kind words. Apologies for not chatting longer as I was a little busy with guests and handing out candy canes. Really hoping the neighbours are understanding this year as it has been fairly consistently like the other night. Hope your display is going well, hope to get out...

    [Possibly Solved] Having trouble with F16v3 dropping off network regularly

    Edit: So I was only powering from the little connectors on the side (as I'm not using the first 16 ports yet) and I noticed the voltage drop everytime I loaded up the unit with packets. Ran a large cable and plugged into V2 and moved the jumper. Now it seems to be good, at least so far. Hurray...

    Hi, Christophe from Melbourne

    Welcome Christophe, Darylc is the man to talk to about falcon boards in Australia. He usually will run a group buy early each year. That way people have time to build the props and control boxes to house the boards before Christmas. Regards, Rowan
