Excellent! Been looking a long time for something like this!

Each light is assigned to a "channel". You give that channel a name, such as "Halo-L". When you create a program, you assign one or more channels to it. You can run multiple programs at the same time.

Very Nice!! Lots of Cool options.

Wonder what the time frame on switching current lighting system over to these modules.

Is it possible to use current Emblem Pro switches below to control on/off function of lights. Currently my RGB boxes stay on, but when entering car I flip switches on/off and use remote to change color. I find this to be quick while also knowing which lights are in use by the switch light.

I would be interested in hearing what you would recommend with this setup.

Here is my current setup below

Would it be possible to still use current Emblem Pro switches to control on/off function of lights. My control boxes currently always stay on, but when entering car I flip which switches to be on/off and use remote for changing of color. I find this to be quick while also knowing which lights are on by the switch light glow.

Would be interested in hearing what you would recommend with that setup.

Just a small amount in my setup



Can u pm me on where I can get that set up?

what is required for this system? would you need a different module for the rgb controller? or could some one just change the frequency to get it too work?

I would love the entire setup shown in the first and second video. I wish you would have a set ready for the big show in texas coming up mid month next month I'd love to have it installed. PM me if you want another test vehicle as I have one of the best fabricators/installers working on my vehicle this week. Hands down awesome!

I have his system installed in my car and I can tell you all that it is simply amazing.

The flexibility and options are endless. I love the fact that I can select a color to run such as orange, and then proceed to go in and fine tune the orange to make it lighter or darker shade to fit my taste, not just a default orange that I have to live with. Do I want my left halo to be yellow while my right halo is blue while my grill light is pink? No problem. Do I want to have these colors while I strobe my DRLs? No problem. It's very sweet.

The other cool thing is the brightness of the colors. Stock halos are difficult to see during the day but with this kit the halos are very noticeable. I actually tuned down the brightness on my white halos at night because they were so bright while they were shining on their own.

Joe is a great guy who has worked extremely hard on this product...the amount of time he and his son have put in is incredible. The best thing about it is they are both passionate about LEDs and Camaros...the great combination for our community!

Our controllers are required to drive the LEDs.

Thanks. We're just about complete with our testing. I doubt our timeline will meet with yours for next month.

Thanks JT. JT is one of our testers that is driving his car daily. Maybe he can help answer some of the questions.

Have you had any problems or glitches in your product...if so what?
and what brand of halos and led strips and etc are you using?

btw i cant stop reading this thread lol really exciting!

should also make a build sheet with all your lighting info for people that would like your exact setup...

If I know the answer or know I can help someone I most definitely will!

Here is another short video that I shot just cause. It will give you a small glimpse at the app that you will use to control the lights! The long list of things you see on the screen are programs that I have created and re named. Ones like "Orange Halos" and what not so I open them up and know exactly what I'm starting. I do not have to create the programs every time I want them on. They save in the app!

Oh sure we've had a ton of problems and glitches in all of the prototypes and tests systems. The products are getting released very soon, and hopefully we don't run into any more. That is why we've been testing and fixing.

Good idea on my car's build sheet. I'll try to get that together. The halos are using 3W RGB LEDs, which replace the factory LED. This is basically the same as the JDP halos. The LED strips that I am using for underbody, grill and floorboards is a no-name brand that you can find on ebay in 15m spools.

How do you tell which light is doing what/color while operating car. I can see getting in the car and hitting the key fob, but how will operator know if lights are actually on/off or paticular color??

For example with my current setup I have most of my lights running off one RGB box ie my Halos, under glow, fender and grill lights. These are used most often during the day and night. Other lighting mostly for shows. However, there is a small light underneatch my cupholder switch plate that glows in cupholder allowing me to know what Color/Settings lights running. This has been VERY helpful.

We thought hard about this. There are a couple of solutions. First, we recommend that you set your default colors to something safe. For instance, set halos to white, undercarriage off, etc. The master module is what receives the wifi and key fob signals. If the master module is either unplugged, or switched off, then the modules are unable to run any programs or other solid colors besides the default. Our master modules will come with a very short USB-style connector for power, and we'll be including a cigarette plug USB adapter. I like leaving the master in my center console, and unplug it when I'm driving. I could also see people hard-wiring the master, and put it on a switch. We also have devised a very simple way of keeping the center console power ports active at all times. We'll probably include this as well. It takes no more than 1 minute, and no tools. As soon as we have time, we'll do a DIY on this.

The second way is to include your indicator light into your programs. You can do this, but we suggest the first way. We're always open to suggestions too, if you think of a better way.
