Fixing the overhead lights when the controller fails
The overhead lights in the "main room," or the room nearest the entrance where the elevator shaft exists are controlled by Max Henstell's (XYMax's) Arduino to DMX project. A common dimmer pack receives DMX ON and OFF codes from a tiny Arduino with a huge random-wire antenna run from the Arduino to the knife-switch next to the door. In the event that those lights fail to come on, or switch themselves off, it is likely that the Arduino has crashed.
Please observe the following instructional video to restore the lighting control to service:
Beware, you may become motion sick.
