I used the following hardware:
- Raspberry Pi
- WLAN USB stick
- FTDI-RS485 USB adapter for connecting to DMX light hardware
- Cables like Power, DMX, ...
... and the following software:
- SD Card with Raspian
- OLA daemon see http://www.opendmx.net/index.php/Open...
- self written C++-daemon for sending DMX data to OLA as middleware (the daemon accepts simple commands for setting modes and values for each DMX channel and can play fades as a background thread - totaly detached from the controlling software; the interface is a simple UDP network connection).
- self written Perl-script for firing up sounds and light commands to my daemon
The program plays a storm sound in the background and makes color changes on the spot and LED-Bar - you can put much more lightning or DMX addressable equipment to the show if you have... . With shortcuts on the keyboard I can play some more scary sounds.
The special fun is the key "G". When pressed the spots are fading to dark and radomly they are flashing white. After that a thunderstorm sound is played.
If you have any questions about this project, feel free to caontact me!
Happy Halloween :-]
