Thanks for the reply.
What im hoping Arduino components can accomplish is:
1: Dim my daytime lights in my terrarium
2: After dimming, start a short thunder sound effect
3: Few seconds after sound effect starts, initiate random(or my programmed sequence) of light, probably 4 different puck type lighting units
4: At the same time as the lights start to "dance" like lightning, trigger my misting pump to turn on
Realistically the entire sequence of effects would only have to last 30 seconds or so.
I know this is a lot to ask! But I hope there is some way I can accomplish this.
Here is a pic of the misting pump, to hopefully give an idea as to trigger this: http://www.mistking.com/images/D/mkp-125-100-detail.jpg
I did do some searching and found almost spot on what id like to accomplish, see the links:
This video shows the effect (skip to 2:30, thats where it starts):
Here is his website, details of his lighting and micro comps. You will probably need to translate to read: http://paludarium.xhd.nl/Apollo.htmhttp://paludarium.xhd.nl/electra.htm
Thanks guys, hope to hear from yall soon.
