Hi, my very first post here on Arduino Forums! I just started diving into the world of arduino, so I don't know much (nothing really) about how to do anything arduino, so please bear with me haha.
I am attempting to use the El Escudo Dos shield (https://www.sparkfun.com/products/10878
) to attach 7 sets of an EL panel combination as pictured here
purchased from here http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/EL-Iron-Man-Set-El-Tape-Glowing-Eyes-EL-Panel-Arc-Reactor-mask-not-included-/151031169052?pt=UK_Toys_Creative_Educational_RL&var=&hash=item68d001d821
with an Arduino Uno as per the instructions by sparkfun listed here https://www.sparkfun.com/tutorials/353
It will be using a 12v wall power supply so power should not be an issue?
I have not really looked into motion sensing with the arduino much yet as I am unsure if I can use both the El Escudo Dos Shield with the Arduino Uno and still have enough space to equip a motion sensor component?
Also, Is there anyway to extend the wires to the EL wire? So not the the actual EL wire, but its plug into the El Escudo Dos Shield. I am attempting to use these EL lights across a considerable distance from each other.
Essentially, my goal is to have all of the EL panels/lights to turn on simultaneously due motion.
Any advice, help, etc would be great. Thank you.
EDIT: I have found extension power cables for the EL wire up to 10 ft, here http://ez-el.com/10ft-extension-cable/
