Here is my roof blueprint outlining the start and end point of my strings. It also ensures that as little overlap as possible occurs, guaranteeing maximum efficient usage out of my strings.

*** Please turn up your volume ***
This is my first attempt to sequence the lights on my new mega tree to music. It took me about 4.5 hours to do the entire song. Some polishing is still needed, but I'm quite pleased with how it's turned out.

This very inexpensive FM transmitter will output audio in an approximately 50 foot radius around the house. It will allow me to output sound for vehicles driving by, yet still be respectful to the neighbors during the weeknights.
I have finally done it. I have jumped into the world of Pixel Lighting. This is what 800 pixels look like running in multi-color demo mode. The programmable light controller I have selected is the AlphaPix 16 V3 - E1.31 & ArtNet to SPI Pixel Controller. Software I'm using is xLights, which can be found at xlights.org. It is free and OpenSource.
