G35 RGB LED christmas lights

Mon Oct 08, 2012 6:25 pm

Seen quite a few projects with Arduino's controlling them, anyone have anything for Raspberry yet? Perhaps a web interface to control them?

I've been searching far and wide for G-35 and Pi information. So far, the only thing I've found was a post from someone who said that the timing cycles on the Pi were not always constant, resulting in random colored lights remaining on, even when you raised the process dispatch priority as high as possible using 'nice'.

Now that my local CostCo is stocking these lights again (50 light strings for $64), I'm really tempted to pick up a string or two. I've also read several posts about Home Depot blowing these sets out the day after Christmas for $20 each.

The Arduino code to control these lights is solid and well documented. Can't someone port this to Python, please?

Here's a link to some really advanced lighting controllers: ... stmas.html
