Haunted House Boards

Back to Products  Home

 

 

Here are some circuit boards that I developed for use in Haunted Houses for Halloween.  You may be able to find other uses for them as well.

 

NEW BOARDS NOT ON WEB SITE YET!
* Random AC Lamp Flickerer - Shorting out bulb effect

* Programmable/Random Lamp Dimmer - Dimming effect

* VMUSIC2 MP3 Player - Add stereo audio to your prop - play up to 10 clips on one player

* PIC Event Timer - Prevents prop from being re-triggered until event complete

* Programmable Sound Distribution Board - Move stereo sound from one source around a room

* Sound-Activated Lightning Controller - Flashes lights and dims room lights to sound

* Mini Trigger Board - Provides dry contact closure to several prop controllers at once

* PIR Trigger Board - Allows you to use a PIR to trigger your prop controller

* Programmable Event Sequencer - Control timing of 3 different events

* 4, 5, 6, 7 & 8 Relay Programmable Relay Boards

These boards are available now.  Please email me for info and pricing.  I'll be adding them to the web site soon.  If you don't see exactly what you want here, just ask!  I might just have it!

 


 

Bat Eyes: $17.00

 

Here is a nice little board that uses a PIC microcontroller to control a pair of red LED “eyes”.  The eyes are on 8" leads.  There are 2 modes of operation – a dim-on and dim-off mode with controllable rate and a realistic random blink.  The eyes go off when a sensor on the main board is illuminated.  Great for sticking around in bushes for Halloween!  (Battery not included.)

Cave Eyes: $42.00

 

Here is another board that uses a PIC microcontroller to control 7 pairs of LED “eyes”.  These eyes can be located far away from the controller and are connected via small gauge 2 conductor wire (user supplied).  The eyes blink randomly and all go off when a sensor on the main board is illuminated.  Great for spreading around in a cave in Haunted Houses!  Operates on 7.5 to 24Vdc.

ISD Sound Chip Recorder/Playback: $0.00

 

Here is a nice little board that allows you to record up to 120 seconds of high quality sound that can be replayed at the touch of a button or triggered by any dry contact closure (PIR, mat, etc.).  The board is based on the ISD sound chip and is replaceable with other versions that will give you recording times of 60 - 120 seconds.   The source of the sound to be recorded can be from your computer or other non-amplified source.  The recorded sound can then be played back through amplified speakers like the ones that are attached to your computer.  There is also a switch that puts the board in loop playback.  ISD Chip (shown on left installed) is not included.  You can order them from www.jameco.com - PN 120643 for the 60-second length and 141655 for the 120-second length.  A ZIF socket is provided for easy insertion / removal of ISD chip.  This board operates on 7.5 to 24 VDC.

Sorry - This board has been discontinued

Sound Activated Relay: $19.00

 

Here is a nice little board that allows you to control a 10A relay in response to sound from a non-amplified sound source (computer, CD player, or my Digital Sound Recorder board).  It has a LED that a visual indication of the sound volume.  Also, there is a potentiometer for sensitivity adjustment. Great for simulating lightning in response to a sound track!  It operates on 12 VDC.

Programmable Relay Board - 1 Relays: $43.75

 

Here is a board based on the PIC microcontroller that allows you to program the on and off operation of a 10-amp rated on-board relay and/or servo motor.  The program can last up to 12 minutes in length.  The program, once entered, can be started by pressing a Play switch or connecting to a dry contact switch closure for remote triggering.  There is also the ability to continually loop the program.  Requires 12VDC.

 

Info Sheet

 

Programmable Relay Board - 2 Relays: $58.00

 

Here is another board based on the PIC microcontroller that allows you to program the on and off operation of two 10-amp rated on-board relays.  The relays can be programmed to operate completely independent of each other and the program can last up to 6 minutes in length.  The program, once entered, can be started by pressing a Play switch or connecting to a dry contact switch closure for remote triggering.  There is also the ability to continually loop the program.  Requires 12VDC.

 

Info Sheet

 

Programmable Relay Board - 3 Relays: $69.25

 

Here is a board based on the PIC microcontroller that allows you to program the on and off operation of three 10-amp rated on-board relays.  The relays can be programmed to operate completely independent of each other and the program can last up to 4 minutes in length.  The program, once entered, can be started by pressing a Play switch or connecting to a dry contact switch closure for remote triggering.  There is also the ability to continually loop the program and there is an on-board potentiometer that will allow you to enter a delay between replays of up to 10 minutes.  Requires 12VDC.

 

Info Sheet

 

Programmable Servo Board - 3 Servos: $61.00

Here is a board based on the PIC microcontroller that allows you to program the independent movement of 3 servo motors.  The program can last up to 6 minutes in length.  The program, once entered, can be started by pressing a Play switch or connecting to a dry contact switch closure for remote triggering.  A "loop" mode is available for replaying the program and there is an on-board potentiometer that will allow you to enter a delay between replays of up to 1 minute.  Requires 7.5V - 24V DC for board operation and a separate 5VDC power supply to drive the servos.

 

Info Sheet

 

Programmable Relay/Servo Board:  $43.00

Here is a board based on the PIC microcontroller that allows you to program a sequence of on/off relay closures and the independent movement of a servo motor.  The program can last up to 4 minutes in length.  The program, once entered, can be started by pressing a Play switch or connecting to a dry contact switch closure for remote triggering.  Requires 7.5 - 24V DC for operation.

Wireless RF Trigger - Transmitter:  $40.00

Here are boards designed to allow you to remotely trigger a device that requires a dry contact switch closure (normally open contact).  This board works with the RF Receiver (below) to eliminate wire connections between your trigger (PIR, mat, etc.) and the device that you want to trigger and works at distances of at least 50 feet – even through walls.  The boards are addressable, meaning that they will not interfere with other RF devices.  This means that you can have many of these trigger boards operating at once.  They are small in size allowing them to be squirreled away out of view.

There is also a version of the transmitter that operates with normally closed contacts, too.

Wireless RF Trigger - Receiver: $40.00

This board works with the above transmitter for wirelessly activating a device.  You can have many of these receivers with the same address as the transmitter (above) to set off a bunch of events at the same time.  This eliminates a lot of wiring!

Sound To Servo Controller: $0.00

Here is a nice board that allows you to control a servo motor in response to sound from a non-amplified sound source (computer, CD player, etc.) or you can play back a message recorded on an on-board ISD voice chip.  ISD Chip (shown on left installed) is not included.  You can order them from www.jameco.com - PN 120643 for the 60-second length and 141655 for the 120-second length.  A ZIF socket is provided for easy insertion / removal of ISD chip. This board operates on 7.5 to 24 VDC.
