Christmas Light Controllers

Christmas Light Controller

We carry a variety of high quality Christmas light controllers. Our timers will save you money by shutting your lights on and off  at certain times so you aren't wasting electricity late at night or during the day. Our Faders will slowly fade in and out between different outlets, a great subtle effect that puts just the right amount of movement on your lights. The chasing Christmas light controllers we carry cycle through outlets in sequence to let you animate displays, these are great for animating things like Jumping Reindeer or Waving Santa arms. Christmas Light Chasers do not make strings chase inside themselves, so you can't plug a single light string into a chasing controller to make just that single string chase. Please view the Christmas light controller and timer categories below to find the product that works best for your needs, if you can't find what you need or have questions about the light controllers shoot us a email via our contact page.

How to Make Lights Chase
This example illustrates how to make Christmas lights chase using a 3 track lighting controller (any size chasing controller can be used).Chase Lights Diagram
Fig 1. Three separate strands of lights are laid out next to each other.
The lights are 1 foot on center. The three strands are offset 4 inches and wire tied together.

Fig 2 is a completed set of chase lights.
The example animation below shows the turn on sequence.

Note: It is usually best to use the same color bulbs for chase lights. We used different color bulbs to make the example more obvious.
