    What Camera do you use to record your show ??

    Help with update on lights

    Hi, Yes, you can use WLED with xLights. I did my first show last year which was running 6x ESP32 with WLED and 5V WS2812B LED Strips for the house outline . You can control them via the App but you get way more control using xlights and a scheduler. Didn't do much fancy to get it working...

    Are these LED strip pixel lights? (What are they?)

    Conduit. I'm only a newbie so haven't got the experience of many of these guys, but attaching strips to conduit with cable ties worked great for me last year. I cut 100mm sections of the same conduit in a bit less than half long ways to make a clip. So all my conduit strips can be clipped...

    Where to purchase cable?

    Hi friends, I see a lot of topics around where to buy the pixels from, but I would like to know if people have found a good place to buy cable. It is expensive so other peoples experiences would be greatly appreciated. Do you just buy bulk in a single gauge and use it for everything? What...

    Hi From Sydney, AU

    Thanks! I thought it only fair as I have read and learned a lot from ACL before actually joining/starting. Been wanting to try a show for years, but now my daughter is old enough to enjoy, it was the extra motivation to actually start.
