How to Make Your Christmas Lights Sync to Music - Smart Garage | Home Automation

Christmas Light Sync to Music?  How?

If you are reading this article, you must have googled the keyword, “Christmas light show.”  You probably also found many videos of great Christmas light show that synchronize perfectly with various pop songs.  If you want your own lights to flash to the tunes of your favorite music, then you must make a plan and get the right types of equipment for your light show set up.  You need to spend a lot of time, lighting and tools to complete it to ensure the end result is awesome.  Here are the 10 steps to your light show set up:

  1. Decide your light show scale
  2. Prepare your light show equipment
  3. Obtain a control system
  4. Acquire outside assistance
  5. Design your display
  6. Program your show
  7. Let them hear you
  8. Get powered up
  9. Publicize
  10. Maintain your display


Decide your light show scale

When planning a light show, one of the first steps is to determine how many channels your show requires and what lighting elements will be controlled by each channel. Decide how your lights show scale is important.  You can either choose a specific highlight spot of your house or choose to light up your entire house.   While you are planning the scale of your light show, you need to understand following set up concepts:

  • Know your Channel number requirements.
  • A channel is a unit of lights that can be controlled individually.  The flash of a string of Christmas light is controlled by one channel.
  • All the lights in a channel work as a single unit. Unfortunately, you can’t flash an individual light bulb.  However, you can control the flashing speed and frequency to match your music categories.
  • For an entire house set up, you may need up to 64 channels.  Any bigger than that, you might need a professional to assist you.
  • A medium-size house typically needs 32 channels to set up.
  • A small scale like your garage, your front door, or your living room tree area, you can consider using our TapTap for simple (still professional) set up.

2. Prepare your light show equipment

Once you decided the scale of your light show, now you will need to prepare for the equipment, specifically, the Christmas lights.   The best time to purchase your Christmas light would be after Christmas, usually the price fall to 20-30% of the regular price.  However, you can always check out online deals on Amazon, Walmart, Target, Home Depot, K-Mart for special sales.    Your total list of equipment includes:

  • Christmas Lights
  • Light Control System
  • Software System
  • Sound System

LED Christmas Lights

In addition, we would also recommend you choosing LED Christmas lights for several benefits. Most people know that LED Christmas lights save a lot of electricity but there are many more reasons to consider making the switch.

Connect More Light Strings

You can typically connect 8 to 10 times more LED light strings together end to end while only using one plug outlet. Most traditional Christmas mini lights allow you to connect only 4 or 5 sets end to end, but with many LED mini light strings you can connect 40 to 50+ together depending on the light count. This makes decorating large Christmas displays far easier.

Cool to the Touch

LEDs produce next to no heat, which means they’re always cool to the touch and safe for children and animals to be around all season.

Visually Unparalleled

LED bulbs produce a brighter more vivid light than traditional incandescent bulbs. The light output is stunning and one of the most complimented aspects of LED lights in customer reviews!

Incredibly Long Life

Many LED light sets are rated to last tens of thousands of hours, which is well beyond a traditional set of incandescent mini lights that typically may last only a season or two.

Advanced Technology, Innovative Designs

LEDs are available in a kaleidoscope of colors and several varieties even feature unique light display capabilities such as being dimmable and color changing. The newest RGB LEDs are even capable of thousands of light color combinations!

LED lights are much easier to use for large Christmas displays, they are safer, they last longer, they produce more vivid color and use up to 90% less energy. Now you know why so many people have already made the switch.

3. Obtain a light show control system.

When it comes to a control system, you have 3 options based on your knowledge and budget:

  1. A fully built system
  2. A kit
  3. A DIY control system

I. A fully built light show system

A fully built system is a system that made and tested out of the box.   It costs you about $20 – $25 per channel. A fully built system can be purchased from various online stores.   If you are the following type of person, you should go for this because it saves you a lot of time!

  • Those do not want to do any electrical work.
  • Those who have no idea of where to start.

II.  A light show Kit

A light show kit is s starter kit that functions almost the same as the system.  It costs from $15 or so per channel, but it’s pretty much the same thing as a fully built product.   The only difference that I can think off is the enclosure, and it is very simple to place an electronics board in an enclosure.

  • A great option if you’re looking to save money.
  • You can pretty much purchase all the parts from the online store now, including the bare circuit board and the parts.
  • Require minor work and customization.

III. A DIY Light Show control system (DIY KIT)

A DIY system costs roughly $5 per channel and up. The price depends on how much you actually do yourself. A system consists of a controller, which communicates with your computer, and solid-state relays (SSRs), which actually switch the lights. SSRs can be bought or made yourself.

  • Budget saver
  • Requires lots of time on hardware
  • Total customization
  • For those who enjoy the engineering process!

4. Get the right Light Show Software.

The light show software breaks the song into segments, allowing you to program each channel of light to either fade, twinkle or turn on and off in each section.  Most of us are not software programmers; therefore, getting software for your light show system is essential.  There are a few venders that provide excellent services, and some software can be free when you purchase the whole package.  Here are some of the current software options you should consider!

Free source: 

  • Vixen is a free, open-source software for Christmas lighting.  If you’re just starting out, and are not looking into detail perfection, then Vixen may be a good starting option for you.
  • xLights is a popular Christmas sequencing program for the “DIY” community.  It is open source like Vixen. xLights has a strong passionate community behind it, and you can see that the developers are constantly improving the functions of the software.  The only downside that xLights requires some learning curve.  For those who want to be professional in the light show community, xLights is the best and most often updated program for now.
  • Light-O-Rama provides is a paid program.  To me personally, it is a bit expensive for “once-a-year” use.  To me, the set up is a bit complex and difficult too.  

Note, if you are a tech-wizard who wish to program the whole thing yourself, you might not be able to have the option for pre-built products, as most of the brand products are closed-source and hard to be compatable with the others.


Quick reminder!  Making a total DIY system is fun, but for beginners, it’s a lot of electronic troubles.   If you are building a small scale fun light show.  You should check out TapTap, a 6 channel christmas light controller.  It even has a built in AI that builds the light show for you.  And it can synchronize with Asante GV- The smart garage door opener!

5. Design your display, Light Styles & Decorating Ideas

Design the actual outside portion of your display. Common elements to include the following types of lights & locations:

  • Mini lights or net lights display – windows, bushes & walls
  • Icicle lights or c-series display – roof and ceiling design
  • Mini Trees / Tomato cages display – animated tree display
  • A Mega Tree display – large animated tree display
  • Wireframes display – 2D or 3D in shape, animated display
  • Blow molds display – yard corner display
  • C9 Christmas Lights Display – outdoor, sideway display
Mini lights or net lights display

Mini lights or net lights usually go on landscaping, such as bushes, windows and a large area of walls.

Icicle lights or c-series lights display.

Icicle lights or c-series lights usually go on the roof and ceiling area.

Mini Trees / Tomato cages display.

Mini Trees / Tomato cages wrapped in lights of one or multiple colors.  Arranged in a line or a triangle, they are very useful in an animated display.

A Mega Tree display

A Mega Tree usually consists of a large pole with lights extending from the top to a large ring around the base. Again, it is very useful in animation.

Wireframes display

Wireframes Christmas displays are metal frames with lights attached.  It can be either 2D or 3D in shape.

Blow molds display

Blow molds are plastic lighted sculptures of deer, Santas, etc. They are usually placed throughout the yard.

C9 Christmas Lights Display

C9 Lights are bulbous, colorful lights that usually go on the yard perimeter.


6. Program your show

Program your light show is time-consuming!  This process includes your music of choice, which node should sync with which light string, and how long should your display be.   The traditional programing can take up to a few months.  The more your channels are, the more complicated your show is.

Taptap II includes a built-in AI that can help you generate a sync song automatically.  The AI itself will save you lots of time in managing your display.

7. Speaker Options

Okay, now let’s talk about the speaker of choices.  If you have a large scale light display, you will need to make sure that your speakers are good enough for the area to hear, but you also need to be mindful of your neighbors.  Speakers playing the same music over and over again will sometimes drive the neighbors crazy.

If you noticed that your neighbor might not be too happy about the light show music, you will need to broadcast over an FM frequency. 

There are many outdoor speakers, make sure the speaker you use is dusk resist and water resist.  Once the speaker is set, Respectfully inform your neighbors of your plan to create a light show display.   Stick to a single showing at the top of the hour, once or twice a night. Once your neighbor knows your display schedule, you should be okay with the light display.  My trick is to include their favorite songs into your display list and make it a group project.

8. Promote your light show work

Finally, your light show is ready.  If this is your first time putting the light show together, you would need someone to spread your work and build a good reputation for you. Here are some steps we recommend you from easy to professional:

  1. The easiest is always, putting a sign in your yard.  Stating your light show playtime, FM frequency, etc.
  2. Let your friends, neighbors, and work buddies know about your display time
  3. Put your show online through social media, facebook, Instagram, etc.  Make sure you put your light show location, broadcasting time and keyword search into the video titles (SEO)
  4. Build a website, do SEO.  Make it a family tradition.
  5. Go into competitions. Such as “The Great Christmas Light Fight”

Again, inform your neighbors that you are publicizing your display. They’ll be much more accommodating if they know your plan to attract attention from around the neighborhood.

Finally, Enjoy your work and holidays!!

Additional Tips

  • Try to manage your time.  Setting up a light show is time-consuming.  To manage things effectively, try to research all kinds of information online and manage the time well.  Check each light strings before you set up the display as well.
  • Be careful with the electronics.  Make sure you research the information regards to electronic works.  You may watch some YouTube tutorials for a step by step guide.
  • Check out the free forums.  If you plan to make it a big show, try to join the community and check out other peoples design and ideas.
  • Talk to neighbors, police, and your homeowner’s association about possible issues with traffic flow, noise, etc. It is much easier to prevent problems than to correct them. However, make sure they understand that there might be problems, not that there will be problems. People need to know what to expect, but don’t stress things so that they shut you down before you even start up your display!
  • FPGAs make fantastic custom control devices, which can hook between an RS232 connection on a PC and a relay board for the lights. An entry-level Spartan 3e Xilinx demo board is around $150.
  • Safety is always the number one rule. If your neighborhood has a lot of pets and kids, make sure your set is kids and pet-friendly to avoid any injuries.

Christmas home with festive holiday lighting and snow

When Christmas nears each year, those ready to celebrate begin to decorate their homes—especially in lights. "Lighting is a game-changer when it comes to the aesthetic of your home, and Christmas lights are no different," says Caroline Harmon, Lowe's trend and style expert. "Adding a touch of string lights to your home will brighten your space and make it feel cozier." And one way to add even more of a memorable touch to your décor is by synchronizing your Christmas lights to festive music for the holidays—whether you decide to have an indoor or outdoor display. Ahead, we asked an expert for his insight into making your music and light show come together in perfect harmony.

Set up a light system with software.

According to Gary McCoy—a Lowe's store manager in Charlotte, North Carolina—the first step when planning your holiday light show is to decide how you want to show the lights themselves: either in a small area inside your home or on your house's façade.  "The light show will ultimately be controlled in channels, which is a unit of lights that can be controlled individually, so keep this in mind as you plan the scope of your show," he explains. "If this is your first show, 30 to 60 channels are a good size to start considering the many steps it takes to initiate setup."

Next, make sure to stock up on lights, McCoy notes—whether you go with classic lights or ones that vary in color and size is entirely up to you. After this, you will need a control system to bring everything together and run the effects and colors, like the Gemmy Orchestra of Lights ($19.98, "There are also fully built systems, light kits, and DIY systems that you can consider to control your light show," he adds. "Depending on what system you choose, you will need to identify a compatible software program (you can download this from an app store) as a part of the control system to help you control the music and coordinate your light show. " After you've chosen your control system and software program, you now get to pick out the music and how you want the lights to respond to the tunes. McCoy does suggest giving yourself time (about a few weeks) to get this step down as the programming alone can be time-consuming.

Stay safe when syncing.

While creating a light show is a fun process, don't forget your safety when putting this all together. McCoy advises to check for broken lights or any damage from the weather each morning. "This will keep your display fully operational and [will help you] avoid any hazards that could result from broken lights or exposed electrical wires," the expert adds. "Additionally, when setting up your outdoor display, make sure your home has enough outside power to run your lights—a typical mini light strand will draw about 1/3 amp." Even though outdoor lights can generally be left on 24/7 and have an average lifespan of 1,000 hours—McCoy recommends consulting with a professional if you aren't sure if your home has enough outside power for a long-term light and music display. "As a starting point, understanding the amperage allowed for your breaker will provide insight into how much power the unit can handle," he shares. "But keep in mind that it's important to understand if the breaker is powering anything additional in your home, which is where an electrician can support."

Keep lighting festive.

As the holidays are filled with cheer, this time could be perfect to personalize and dress up your home to speak to the season. "While classic holiday string lights are a go-to option, icicle lights—like the GE StayBright White Mini LED Plug-In Christmas Icicle Lights ($14.98,—are a fun way to brighten up a wall or add curb appeal to your front porch," Harmon shares. She adds that rope lights—such as the GE StayBright Multicolor Integrated LED Plug-In Christmas Rope Lights ($29.98,—are also great for the outdoors since they can move and extend to shape of your display. To give even more of a festive feel to your lights, Harmon recommends connecting your music to a music conductor speaker—like the Sonos One SL speaker ($179, amazon. com).

Lastly, you should also keep courtesy at the forefront with your entire musical light display since you and your neighbors are likely spending more time at home than usual. "The best way to give passersby the opportunity to listen to your coordinated light show is by broadcasting over an FM frequency," McCoy says, "instead of playing the music out loud in your yard on repeat."

Snowflakes. First one, fervently circling, landed right on the tip of my nose, then another, and after a few moments everything around shone from the dance of dazzling white ice crystals. Here it is.

- Look at the sky. What do you see? ' came a familiar voice behind him. The very first impulse was to raise one's head and make sure that this was not a mirage or a hallucination, but the words themselves fell out of the tongue, supporting this game:

- I see clouds. But snowflakes interfere, climb into the nose and eyes.

– You see, it’s negative again – dark clouds, snowflakes get in the way, it’s cold to lie down, this moron dug in, – there was a mocking answer, – And I see lovely cotton clouds and millions of unique snowflakes, unlike one another. And next to me right now is the most amazing girl I've ever met. See the difference, Izzy?

“Now I see,” I answered in a voice trembling with tears. These same words, one to one, we said to each other some two weeks ago, lying in the snow and counting the stars. Everything fell into place, magically laid out on the shelves, as if there was no parting. Slowly looking up, I smiled through my tears: towering over me was a smiling archangel.

In disbelief of my own eyes, I stretched out my hand with an effort, and in a few moments I found myself in the safe hands of Gabriel, flushed with frost or excitement. Imagine the man's surprise when, instead of throwing myself into his arms, I attacked him almost with my fists:

– Oh, you're such a beast, what was that all about?! - shouting at the top of my hoarse voice, I beat the feathered one, putting all my anger into the blows. For any other representative of the allegedly stronger sex, this could have ended tragically, but I was lucky with the reinforced concrete chosen one. “Who gave you permission to control my brains, you asshole of heaven? Or have you not pulled out feathers for a long time and you miss the thrill?!

“Isabel, can you…” Gabriel tried to calm me down, catching my arms and pulling me to him, but I stubbornly floundered, not letting him say a word.

- No, it can't! You feathered bastard, and if I were completely crazy ?!

– But now you are a real standard of sanity and mental balance, – he sighed wearily, dodging another slap on the back of the head.

– Am I psychic?

– Yes, I didn’t mean that, and in general…

– I don’t care about your “generally”! I now have a psychological trauma for the rest of my life, and he also dares to joke. You are a mountain goat, not an archangel, and your soul is black, like Malevich's fantasy!

– Would you like to arrange a dispute about the art of Kazimir Severinovich?

- I don't want anything. And stop smiling. I thought I was going crazy, but did you have fun here or what?

“Of course, I had a lot of fun watching you purr pretty with another man, even one I created,” he replied in an offended tone, which made me feel a nasty pang of conscience. I'm a fool, that's who: Gabe is still back, and I'm trying to fight him and throw tantrums. Shrugging, I timidly hugged him.

- I'm sorry. Probably not what you were expecting.

- Yeah. Who knew that everything would unfold so quickly? Usually such tricks work out for me without much effort.

“It's just that you didn't take into account one small detail.” Breaking away from the hug, I looked into my native hazel eyes, which reflected the Christmas lights of Boston.

- Which one?

Smiling softly, I got up on my toes and whispered directly into the man’s ear:

– No magic and angelic tricks will be enough to make me forget you, – having finished speaking, I pulled away and shoved the taken aback archangel into the room, continuing to push him towards the middle of the room .
