    So I'm slowly getting everything together to run lights for the first year.

    I recently received my pixel sticks and went straight to soldering them all up and have now printed some cases for them!

    5 of my 10 pixel sticks are ready. I won't be using the whole 10 for the first year.
    And I'm sure just 5 will give me enough headaches.

    make sure you have a decent wireless router, otherwise you might experience slight drop outs

    I've got a cheapy for testing but if it doesn't work well i'll be grabbing a better one. The networks are completely separate and I have made sure it is on a channel that has very low use in my area. Just need to make sure I hide the SSID once I have everything set up so there is less chance of everyones phones trying to connect.

    They are the only controller I am running in the show due to the fact I only need to run 240v cables to each box and all the cables then go out to the lights.

    I just want it to be as easy to set up the lights as possible. The networking stuff on the other hand might be the part that breaks me.
