UFO Lights

Here's a video of my first project - a sequenced light controller for a UFO model kit, with a light activated trigger.

Been a fun learning experience and a nice return to a hobby I used to pursue 25 years ago!

Very nice looking model and good light sequence.

For the trigger do you read the light level and when the light level goes down a certain amount (when you cover with your hand) .. it triggers the lights?

Thanks marklar

Yes exactly that - it measures the ambient at switchon, then waits for the reading to fall to half that to trigger the sequence.
