Thought i'd throw a little post up to show my first year of having a somewhat decent attempt at lights. Used a few WLED modules last year with XLights and the bug has bitten. This year i will be using the Hanson Electronics RPI-28D+ to control the roof outline, 2 windows, garage door outline and 3 mini trees but already thinking that's not enough 😂. Started building the controller box today from bits left over from work and an enclosure that an apprentice kindly drilled wrong hahaha. I'll chuck more pics up as i go along.

Wrongly drilled hole/s in a stainless box :jawdrop:
Looks nice and neat and nice seeing bootlace ferrules in use.

Got the box finished today and all the cables for it, just need a new LED module for the indicator on the door and a vent for the other hole. IMG_20210920_203413.jpg

Two trees and one candy cane ready to go, just waiting on more pixels, a tune to sign working with an old monitor and a media player that i copied off the forums ( the name escapes me at the moment ) and the layout sorted in xlights. Just need to build a power injection box for the other end of the house and i should be done hopefully.
