Each light channel has a number of special effects such as dimming, ramping, twinkle and shimmer. If you have never worked with AC before, please get supervision from someone that has. Whether you prefer a flame-like flicker, a more atmospheric glow, or something in between, you can change and set the speed of your lights with a Christmas light controller. You can buy them online and at some radioshacks They are called “dumb” controllers because unlike the SPI / Pixel controller which send a data stream to a chip to control the light, these are actually only controlling the intensity of 3 different channels which are mapped out to RGB (Red/Green/Blue) lines.
