Playing with Radions: Part 2

Posted 11/08/2011 at 08:21 PM by Aaarrrggg (Aaarrrggg's 144g Half Circle Dream)

A hint of purple in there now as the "sun" begins to set

BAM! Sunset! The lights flare up a warm orange for ~15mins

Playing with Radions: Part 1

Posted 11/08/2011 at 08:20 PM by Aaarrrggg (Aaarrrggg's 144g Half Circle Dream)

I've been having a lot of fun playing with the Radion lights!

I discovered that the software can actually do what I want it to already, I just hadn't been pressing the right buttons. The lights each have a mini USB port, so you just hook one up to a computer to configure them all.

Here's the main settings page with my current settings:

I have the sump going too... (excuse the mess; new power-strips arrive tomorrow so I can get it organized/less fire-hazardy under there.)

Lights!

Posted 11/06/2011 at 01:33 PM by Aaarrrggg (Aaarrrggg's 144g Half Circle Dream)

Well, In the meantime, lets get those lights on there!

As the lights are going to be hidden away in the canopy, we had the luxury of not needing them to be pretty. We pillaged Home Depots plumbing dept and fabricated this light rig...

The lights are screwed into the pipes and then the whole thing...
