I just built a lamp that was a huge success – I built off of a cheap white lamp from Amazon and turned it into a sound-reactive RGBW piece (see video links at the bottom).
I am inspired to make another 5 of them and connect them with a Firestorm setup to illuminate a small dance floor or chill space.
My question: When they are running in synchronized mode with Firestorm, does each lamp need its own separate sensor expansion board on the PixelBlaze, or can I get away with just one sensor board and the other 5 being “regular” PBv3 boards.
If you want to see the project – here’s the “single” lamp before I make another 5 of them: PixelBlaze sound reactive lamp by ZacharyRD - Album on Imgur (First video is without sound-reactive, second has sound).
Obviously I can add a sensor board to each, but that adds a LOT to my cost per lamp – Moves the project from just under $100 a lamp to $135 a lamp, roughly, plus the Raspberry Pi, which, well, is stiff for a cool piece for parties and the like.
