Default Anyone tried this wicked cheap light controller?

I found it at AutoZone and it seems to do the job of light relay and controller without the need to pass through the fire wall.

Unlike the 80 and 100, I found limited space in the GX for switches without drilling 3/4" holes all over the dash.

I should be able to handle the swap out from poorly routed switches to this system tomorrow. I'm running 2 10" light bar spots, 2 rigid amber spots, 2 rigid ditch light floods which seems to be well within the limits of this unit.

$39.99 was the cheapest I found it and it's available at autozone now for store pick up.

Just got this home and it's a aluminum body, sturdy unit. She'll sit nicely on the Slee air comp tray.

I have it in my hand. It's the same shape and feel as a standard garage door opener with the buttons below a a weather resistant cover.

I'm mapping out what lights I want set up for each color/amperage right now. I may do a left/right of vehicle to start and perhaps pair them up if I add additional lighting.

The control box is a beer can in length and 3/4 can in width and 1/4 can tall (guess what I had close to me for a US standard measurement tool?)

both positive and negative leads are about 2.5 feet long.

Are you actually running all the power through the switch box or is it a relay?

How many lights will it control?

Hopefully the remotes are all the same frequency and code so you can turn your friend's lights on and off each time he is about to pass a cop.

Report back, this is interesting to me. Saves a lot of wiring and switches. Are the relays built in? I am assuming you power the controller from the battery and then just pop on the leads of each light? That'd be pretty rad.

Reminds me a little of the Trail Toys NSA switch panel I put in my last 200 - it used a remote control with a good range including one button that turned on everything at once. https://trailtoys.net/products/nsa-switch-panel
