This was our very first haunted display in our new townhouse in Lake In The Hills, IL.
(We later moved to Arlington Heights, IL and renamed our haunt to "Drury Lane Cemetery" in 2008)
I built my very first animated prop, the Flying Crank Ghost
. I was new
to home automation at the time, and developed a prototype light show controller that worked with Insteon home automation
technology to animate the lights to music. This became the basis of a commercial software product called
Light Show Master
which has been used by other yard haunters and for Xmas light shows as well.
