The PicoBoo PLUS is just like the PicoBoo - simple, effective, and easy to use. Using the latest technology available, we've figured out how to include four 10 amp relays on the PicoBoo PLUS!

Relay Outputs

The PicoBoo PLUS has four 10 amp relay outputs brought out to two pluggable terminal blocks. Each outputs has both a normally-open and normally-closed contact so you can control just about anything.

Up to 2 minutes of animation at 30 frames per second can be recorded.

Animation During Ambient Mode

The PicoBoo PLUS is also a step above our regular controllers in that you can also create sound AND animations during the ambient mode - in other models, you can only program sound in this mode. This means you can program some creepy movements to unsettle your guests before you hit them with the real show!

Real-Time Programming

Just like the other PicoBoo controllers, programming the device is easy using the on-board buttons. You can program all of the controller's outputs at the same time or layer them one by one to create complex and dynamic arrangements. No weird button sequences to punch in or manuals to fumble with, just use one button for each outlet by pressing record and programming your animation.

Supports Audio

The PicoBoo PLUS also uses a built-in flash memory sound chip so you can not only playback sounds, but you can record up to two minutes of your own. Just plug in any audio device right into the audio-in port and record the sound directly. It's simple and requires no software or file format conversion. You can also record up to 8 sounds which the device will automatically cycle through.

Amplified Sound

The PicoBoo PLUS comes with a 30 watt internal Class D amplifier so you can use standard speakers which are smaller and easier to hide in your props and around your scene.

The amplifier's full output power can only be realized with a 4 ohm speaker and a power supply of at least 3 amps. The standard 1 amp power supply is definitely loud, but as the volume increases to a certain point, you may notice some distortion.

Trigger Input for Activating Props

The PicoBoo PLUS supports triggers such as infrared motion sensors, beam sensors, pressure sensor mats, and hand triggers through the use of a trigger input. You can also set up the controller to loop a program by using a small wire to connect the - and IN trigger pins.

Our selection of triggers can be seen here.


Like our other Halloween prop controllers, the PicoBoo PLUS has a safeguard mechanism to prevent you from accidentally erasing or modifying your carefully crafted program.

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.
  • Can the motion sensor trigger be 5VDC or must it be 12VDC?
    Short answer: Not easily. Long answer: The controller provides 12VDC to power triggers. It will not supply 5VDC. If you need to use 5VDC you can power your motion sensor with your own 5VDC power supply or follow the instructions here to step the 12VDC voltage down to 5VDC.
  • Scare sound only plays for 2 seconds
    The scare sound will only play as long as the animation. Record longer animation.
  • Can you run a 12v device and 110v device out of of the same output simultaneously?
    Absolutely not!
  • 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.
  • Is it possible to trigger this controller with a wireless remote from Home Depot?
    NO! Motions sensors from the hardware store are 120V AC and will burn up the controller. Only 12VDC trigger devices must be used with the controllers.
  • After the PicoBoo is triggered and running animation, will another trigger during the animation restart the animation?
    No, the program will run to completion.
  • 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.
  • Does the whole scene have to be programmed simultaneously or can each relay be programmed separately?
    Each can be programmed separately or all at once. See "Recording One Output at a Time" in the product manual.
  • 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 run a PicoBoo from a battery?
    Yes, you can run them from a 12V battery. More information can be found here
  • Would there be any problems if I wired one trigger to activate two PicoBoo controllers at the same time?
    That can be done by following the instructions in this document.
  • Can I have the recorded program run and repeat indefinitely without needing to be triggered each time?
