  • PicoBoo
  • Audio Recording Cable
  • Black PIR Motion Sensor with 15 feet of wire
  • 4" Prop Speaker with 15 feet of wire
  • 12V 1Amp Power Supply
The PicoBoo has been our most popular controller since it debuted. For the first time ever we are bundling this amazing controller together with everything you need to create your own custom scare. The kit includes a PicoBoo controller to control the scare, a sensor to trigger it, and a speaker to give it a voice. All you need to supply is a sound on a computer or CD, and a few things to turn off and on in sync with your sound. Popular choices are pneumatic valves, small motors, fog machines, and lights. Pretty much anything that can be wired up to a switch and turned off and on can be controlled with the PicoBoo!


Product Faqs

Ask a Question

  • Will this controller run servos?
    This controller does not support servos. The products that do are the BooBox Flex MAX and the PicoTalk.
  • Is there a way to loop the program?
    Yes, you simply put a piece of wire into the trigger input.
  • Can I use a 12V DC 10 Amp power supply with this controller?
    Yes, as long as the power supply is 12V DC and at least 1Amp. You can never have too many amps, but never supply more voltage!
  • Do I need any type of diodes when I use solenoid valves with the PicoBoo controller?
    Generally diodes are not required. Sometimes very electrically noisy devices do require them (such as large motors). See the document Installing a DC Diode for feedback absorption for more information.
  • Will the PicoBoo control and power 24V DC devices?
    It will control them but it does not supply 24VDC power to the devices. You would need a separate 24V power supply. Click here for wiring information.
  • Does the PicoBoo power supply support 220 volts 50 hz?
    Yes, the 12V power supply included with the PicoBoo controllers will run off of 220V 50hz power as well as 110V 60hz.
  • I'd like to purchase the picoboo starter kit and a MOT1 prop motor. Do I need to buy a separate power supply for the motor?
    The motor will require a 12V 5AMP power supply that is not included in this kit.,
  • Scare sound only plays for 2 seconds
    The scare sound will only play as long as the animation. Record longer animation.
  • PicoBoo will not activate the 1/2" high-flow valve (or it activates it sporadically)
    If you are using the 1Amp power supply that came with the PicoBoo it is not large enough to also power the large 1/2" valve. You need to go up to a 12V 5A power supply.
  • Can these be battery powered?
    The PicoBoo and BooBox controllers can run off of a 12V battery. We recommend one with high amperage such as a car, motor cycle, or alarm system battery.
  • After the PicoBoo is triggered and running animation, will another trigger during the animation restart the animation?
    No, the program will run to completion.
  • Does this kit come with any wire for the motion sensor?
    Yes, the motion sensor is pre-wired with 15 feet of wire.
  • Is there a way to delay the sound starting, say for a few seconds, once the trigger is activated?
    The way to do this is to record some silence into the beginning of your audio file.
  • I would like to have a 10 second pause between triggered events.
    Record the sequence on the PicoBoo but wait 10 seconds before tapping record to save. That will add 10 seconds of “post delay” during which time a sensor will not be able to activate the PicoBoo.
  • How do I make it continuously play without having to trigger it?
    Simply put a jumper (piece of wire) into the trigger input terminals and it will play the program continuously.
  • Can a reed switch be used as a trigger?
    Yes. Most reed switches are normally-closed, so depending on your application you might have to set the trigger mode on the PicoBoo to normally-closed too. Either way it will work.
  • Can I record audio into the controllers via my Android or iPhone?
  • Can I have the recorded program run and repeat indefinitely without needing to be triggered each time?
