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!

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!
Can you use a cylinder and a solenoid with this controller?
Can I have the recorded program run and repeat indefinitely without needing to be triggered each time?
Can I record audio into the controllers via my Android or iPhone?
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.
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 connect a short jumper wire between (-) and (IN) and it will play the program continuously.
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.
Does this kit come with any wire for the motion sensor?
Yes, the motion sensor is pre-wired with 15 feet of wire.
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 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.
Is there a way to loop the program?
Yes, you simply connect a short jumper wire between (-) and (IN).
