Any Ideas on pricing for the full setup, shown in your video?
I was hoping for ball park so I can start embezzaling money from my wife
What kind of packages are going to be offered? Interior/ exterior?
I Was hoping for more specifics, I don't see it mentioned as kits (except halos) just as individual pieces/modules. And I have checked website as well. It may just be too early I guess.
Can we pre-order?
I only see mention of preordering HALO kits
Are you going to setup the halos in headlights and have a core charge/exchange system. Or we on our own there?
Thanks I guess I'm on my own, not a problem
are you supplying the leds for turn signals and DRLs in the kits?
Thanks again.
Thanks I am really excited about your product.
Is this available for the android............ Just kidding

I have aftermarket LED halos that aren't color changing. I'd still be able to hook them up for the heartbeat and/or strobe effect right? Along with my grill lighting and and future lighting I have planned? Don't have any color changing stuff on mine since it doesn't go with what I've got.

I'm not sure what drives your halos now. If they are just 12V (meaning that they have some type of current-limiting device and you just supply them 12V), then I'd suggest an SL module instead of the HP module. The SL module will give you 12 independent single-color channels, or 4 multi-colored, or any combination.

Right now it's just the factory settings, but I plan on soldering in some diodes soon and adding the wiring to connect it to the current 4-channel wireless box I have now.

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!

Cool!! I was wondering if the halos were going to be bright enough. Your post just answered that question. I can't wait to see the pricing and the install instructions

RS Headlights only for our halo kit. Sorry. If you can get LED rings in there, then I'm sure you could control it with our controllers.

I read through the entire thread and just want to make sure that my understanding is correct. We will be able to us this module with Oracle lighting correct? I have a bunch (mostly the dynamic) already installed but like your controller system a lot. Seem that we should be able to just replace the current controller modules with yours correct?

I'm not familiar with "dynamic", and I couldn't find anything other than off-road lights. For RGB LEDs, we should work with any common-positive LEDs. That means one wire for positive, and 3 negative wires for each color. This is the most common type. Also called Common-Anode. If you could PM me a link to their product specs on the lights and/or controllers that you are using, I should be able to tell for sure.

Thanks. By dynamic I meant that they can do millions of colors as opposed to just RGB.

I will PM you with my current set up just for additional clarifications.

Thanks!

Thanks. Reply sent. To summarize for everyone: Oracle ColorShift 2.0 lights should have no problem being controlled by our SL module or strip-light ports on the HP module. Additionally, even though we still need to test with one, their mailslot scanners will be able to be turned on/off with our controller, which you would be able to do with your smartphone or wireless RF remote.

By the way, have we mentioned that our RF remote won't interfere or control anyone else's system? There was a lot of frustration at camaro fest last year because everyone's remote was turning on/off their neighbor's systems. I also talked with one camaro owner that has 8 remote controls to control their system. One smartphone is all you need guys! And most of you already have one in your pocket.

I'm working on getting everything set up to accept pre-orders for halo kits as well as NightOwl upgrade kits for JDP Halo kit. We're looking good to begin shipping these in about 4 weeks. We're waiting on our wiring harness partner to get a crimping die made. As soon as we start taking orders, I'll be getting the individual modules opened up for pre-orders.

Pricing should be available very shortly.

I have lots of oracle lights including halos and scanner if you need a tester plus a nearby oracle installer who most likely would love to carry your product

Joe- if I PM you my planned setup will you be able to tell me what controllers I would need from you? I just want to make sure I am ready for the pre-order!

I could help at any time. The initial pre-order will be for halo kits only. I'm hoping to have the individual modules available soon after that.

PM sent! I will be happy with increased control of the JDP halo kit at first. Looking forward to seeing your other products as well. Thanks for the help!

yes I was the eight control person...lol I cant wait.... I have oracle halos but I am getting discouraged with there products... sidemarkers fogged up and I had to silicone them, then putting them back in both clips broke on the front ones.....I have talked to several other people that they broke on them too...one of my RGB controllers for the halos went out and now my rear emblem only has half the LEDs working... Once again Im going to have to call and argue with there poor costumer service reps which I explained is going to cost them in the long run because I tell everyone about them. Its always a run around with them. I have bought everything they make for the camaro you'd think they'd try to accommodate a good customer! Anyway I cant wait to get the NightOwl and I will make sure people know's there name...Thanks to Joe and his son for all the hard work.

Looks like fair pricing to me. I just need to know now what all I need for my system. I sent an email, but also included here


My current setup is

1. AAC pod lights red for footwell
2. AAC red Rear Bowtie
3. AAC RBG Scanner light
4. RGB grill lighting 2 strips
5. RGB Halos main headlight
6. RGB under glow strips two strips but might add two more in future.
7. RGB fender lights two strips (one on each fender)
8. Engine bay lighting 2 long led strips in red however looking at changing over to RGB strips
9. RGB cup holder mini strip. This is small lets me see what lights color and effect is actually occurring on halos, grill lights.
10. RGB wheel lights
11. ACS pod lights in lower front cutout on front end.
12. Trunk led Red on jar head trunk lid mod.
13. AAC after burners red.

Think that is about it. I have all my RGB stuff going into one box and that changes all my RGB stuff to same colors and effect. Second box is an RGB for the wheel lights only. Scanner Is not connected to box but can control effects and color by key fob.
Single color lighting ie foot wells are wired to switch.

Everything is wired up then to my emblem pro switch monster plate and cup holder plate to give full control of on/off. My RGB boxes stay on constantly and mainly reside on orangish/red color without effect set to zero. Will sometimes change effects and colors at shows.

Joe, I don't have a RS so are you going to offer a non RS kit? Also if someone has a set of Eagle Eye headlights will you kit work on it also?
