    Hello all xx
    I'm a newbie at this BUT got in contact with an American company that put together packages like plug in and go kinda stuff but because au is not compatible with USA he won't sell me anything [emoji174] (heartbroken)

    3 questions:
    1: Does anyone know is USA voltage blah blah can be converted to Australian standards?

    2: does anyone in Australia sell these packages where the faces are done, the programs are set etc?

    3: is anyone keen to make a package for me that requires the minimum amount of time by me to run it? [emoji1374](praying)

    I'm a mum of 3 and completely spend my time changing nappies and keeping them alive basically! My thing is themed Christmas lights! I saw these singing tree faces and am completely in love with them!

    Can anyone help me?
    Love Bel xxx

    The vast majority of the lights used and discussed by forum members are low voltage. It won't matter what country you're in. I'm thinking maybe you could mount some pixels or dumb RGB lights on mesh so that you can put the faces on anything.

    Yeah apparently he has sold to Australia before and they didn't work so he won't sell any more. They are complete packages just plug in and go. Just wondering if an Australian company does this? I basically want to get in touch with someone and say I want these and they send it to me and I can plug it in and press play. (Obviously not that easy but you get the idea)

    HI
    Try http://www.christmascreations.net.au


    a word of warning, I don't know to what level you want the "plug and play package" to work. If you want the faces to sing to music then you will need to sequence the lights or get someone to do that for you ($$). Most of us here are DIY and do as much as we can ourselves


    Sequencing singing faces is very time consuming, think 10hrs per minute...
    There are places that sell sequences but they usually require modifying to suit your particular installation


    try http://www.holidaysequences.com


    and of course you will need power supplies and controllers and such


    Cheers
    Fing

    Re: Need some singing faces in my life!

    They'd be these one's I'm guessing http://www.animatedlighting.com/products/just-add-power/singing-christmas-trees.php. Not cheap at and shipping to Aus would be expensive.


    As Fing suggested Christmas Creations is the closest you'll get to that in Australia, slightly different but still effective. They have complete packages these days, that literally are ready to run - faces, controllers, power supplies, show controller and pre-programmed songs on a memory stick
    Various singing faces http://www.christmascreations.net.au/singing-face-effects.html
    Controllers and even ready to run box with pre-done songs http://www.christmascreations.net.au/controllers.html
    He's got a new product out http://www.christmascreations.net.au/singing-christmas-trees.html that might suit your needs if you have the money. :D


    You'll find most people on here build and program this all from scratch.

    Re: Need some singing faces in my life!

    Thank you xx
    yes everyone on here is AMAZING!!

    I would love to learn to do it myself but I basically wanted a plug and play to start with and then I can branch out and start my own creations and diy projects like you guys.
    I'm so impressed with the stuff I have read already but I basically don't have the time right now until the kids are a little older.

    Thanks so much for your info!

    I'm so impressed with everybody and everything I have read already from the people on here!
    It's all just a little over my head at the moment but my goal is to work my way up to the stage you guys are at!

    Yes those are the ones I wanted but he said they don't work in Australia and refuses to send them to me. I'll try and see if Christmas creations can help me or find someone on the forum who has some spare time and keen to earn a bit of extra cash to help. :)

    You're a champion thank you :) everyone is so helpful!
