Xmas light switching - help!

Not open for further replies.

Basically I've got an idea for Christmas lighting I'd like to setup, but don't have the know how to put together.
I want to build an object wherein I can plug up to 4 items into it, then when it has power surging through, each outlet is given power for one second, then it switches to the next plugged in object.
After reaching the last item it starts back at the beginning.
Do you know how this can be done, or perhaps point me in the right direction where I can find out?

Someone posted a circuit with a 4017 counter driven by a 555 not so long ago. You should be able to do it with that setup. Look around a bit on this forum in the posts of few days ago
