Does anybody have a solution for a RGBW LED controller reset issue? I went with a Konxie Smart WiFi RGBW LED Controller, off of Amazon. it uses Magic Home Pro has the Wi-Fi controller program. I power it through a Game On power supply that goes on and off with the GI lights. Theproblem is during multi-ball if the GI lights go on and off 3 times the LED controller resets to flashing random colors. Three times on and off is how you reset the LED controller. Any idea how to override this reset? Or does anyone have a suggestion for a LED controller that doesn't reset by going on and off?

Quoted from Gogojohnnyquack:

Thanks for the awesome walk-throughs and videos, they get me closer to building my own. Question - Have you tried to include a relay to tie them in with the GI for on/off sync? Several of my machines dim and power off the GI for effects and I would like to preserve that feature. This is the main reason why I've avoided building these lights and is the reason I've purchased a set of Pinstadiums in the past.

Depends if you want to drop a few more bucks into the system. I used a Game On Interactive Power Supply on my ST:TNG. Rock Custom Pinball makes them and sells them for $45. I rewired my auxiliary 110 power supply to come on and off with the game switch. After that it's pretty much Plug and Play. Positive is the lights go on and off with the game. You also have additional leads to power other 12 volt accessories. The only negative was that most of the cheap LED controllers reset if you switch them on and off three times quickly. So when you go into multi-ball mode LED lights go back to the factory original when the lights start going on and off. To overcome this I had to buy a bit more expensive LED controller that did not reset by turning it on and off.
