I don't use the annoying chase or blink features.(they came with them) It's no different than the globes and lights that plenty of others hang from their awnings. And for the price and a little wiring, I don't have to set up hangers and hang the lights that would have to be torn down every time I leave or bad weather arises.

You can't transform DC, so as long as you have a "cigarette lighter" 12V plug, you can just plug into that (provided there is a plug on the end, if not they are cheap to add on) and not have to worry about a power supply. Just make sure the plug has the correct fuse installed. If you plug it into the wall, you just need an AC-DC converter or use the, often included, power supply. I am planning a fused run directly from the battery with a 3A fuse (strip I am getting is 2A so allowing for 150% fusing).

I am currently designing a brush/slip ring system so I can leave it as a perminent mount. I will mount the control box to the storage door and drill out a hole for the IR sensor and seal it up nice and tight. No more fuss after that!
