    That's just nuts! You need a nuclear reactor to power all that. :confused:

    These are old photos and most of the boxes have been modified since.
    I have several around my yard. I paint them to look like presents :thumbsup:

    Here is a few from my show..

    I have a number of power outlets around the exterior of the house switched together so the controllers come on around 8.15Pm and switch off at 12.00AM. All run back to a main switchboard (used for everything not just Christmas)

    2016 Megatree controllers (x2) before the fans were installed. These boxes didn't turn out so well so have replaced for 2018 with a large metal switchboard box shown below..

    This is the new Megatree controller..... It contains;
    4 x 600W PSUs / output voltage display
    1 x 120W PSU for Fan and small DMX controller for tree star
    2 x Pixlite 16s
    1 x Ethernet switch with fibre uplink
    Switchboard

    I used an in-line blower fan with 100mm pipe to duct the hot air out of the enclosure

    This is the equipment rack in my switchboard room.... it has the show PC, ethernet switches, HDMI matrix for Virtual Santa, UPS and NAS for CCTV recording (among other things)
