This is another project ive been preparing for christmas. Ive started small to see how i get on with 2x 20 led 3v lights from the local pound shop and a 3v EL wire again cheap so if it doesnt work ive not lost.
After putting jessie raspbian onto the card and set up the configs i downloaded the lightshowpi software before wiring up the lights to a relay board. I didnt run into any problems as the lightshowpi site is well written. The only problem i did notice was my relay board being noisy but im hoping by getting a solid state relay board this will solve it.
Here is a link to the youtube video i made.
