Tom's Internet controlled Christmas Lights!
This is a proof-of-concept page that controls DMX/E131 Christmas lights from the Internet. The player is a Raspberry Pi running Falcon Player and the strings are connected to Arduino and Beagle Bone Black microcontrollers. xLights is used to create the animations. The house outline lights use GE Color Effects and everything else uses WS2811 and RGB lights. Want to learn more? Please visit www.itwinkle.org
The lights will be available Thanksgiving Day 2017. During that time, they are available each night from 5:00 p.m. to midnight (EDT). The lights run until a week after New Year's, so have fun with them!
You can also watch this recorded video.
Many thanks to Doylestown Communications for providing extra bandwidth and Twitch for providing the live video stream!
