Max says, “Today, I was thinking about how I can turn a household bulb into a party light by connecting an embedded computer for my next party in my garage. We will use a SSR (solid state relay) relays to enable common AC household light.” Check out the great video tutorial. Link.

    Doesn’t turning fluorescent bulbs on and off cause the ballasts to fail prematurely?

    Other than that, great idea!

    Yeah, on and off = !ballast

    Wonder which would last longer, a normal bulb being pulsed on and off (rapid heating and cooling of the filament), or a flourescent with the same pattern?

    The correct answer is LED Bulb!
