It does specify that it only works with Opticom equipped traffic lights (I wonder how many are, and if any are outside the USA), I would also suspect it's illegal to use!.narco said:Anyone seen the kit sold from Kenneke that changes the traffic lights through IR bulbs? Has anyone ever built one? If so, how did it work (or not) and how about sharing the schematics.
If you were a legal user, no doubt such a device would be provided!.narco said:Its only illegal if you are not associated with a governmental entity, and its use would be used within the parameters allowed (such as EMS, Fire, and Police).
I'm not preaching at anyone, but I do dislike being accused of stealing cable!. Cable isn't even available here, there's a whole lot of world outside the USA you know!.narco said:Yes this is true, but if you were to price the complete (already built) version of the light changer, you would see that you can build it for thousands of dollars less than you can buy it for. If you have not used one, just say so. Last I checked this is an electronic project page, not a page to question legalality of items that you don't agree with. I would be willing to bet that although you preach about legality, probably about 85% percent of the electonic persons who read this page know how to steal cable, and are probably doing so right now (maybe even you).
