Hi, I am the owner of i-Zombie Productions. I would like to clear up the confusion about using strobes with our Lightning Controllers.
Yes, the i-Zombie controllers will activate strobe lights. But, perhaps not all strobe lights. When designing these units, our goal was to match the percentage of light output to the intensity of the audio signal. Loud crashes = 100% light output, Medium crashes = 50% output and so on. A strobe light is either ON or OFF and flickers at the rate you set. These are two entirely different effects with circuitry performing two different functions. Because our units do not actually control the intensity or brightness of the strobe light (it only turns them on and off) we wrote in our FAQ's that the i-Zombie units do not work with strobes.
As SOCal Scare put it, "I used a 700 watt strobe w/ my I-Zombie last year and had absolutely no problems at all." Many others have told us the same.
We have not tested the units with any strobes and would appreciate anyone who is using them with i-Zombie units to email us and let us know the model and wattage of the strobe light and which model i-Zombie you are using. I will post the results on our website at
Anyone wishing to use strobe lights with our units will have a list of strobes to choose from. If anyone finds a strobe light that will not work with i-Zombie lightning controllers, please send us that info as well.
We will change the FAQ's on the website to reflect that i-Zombie lightning controllers will work with strobe lights.
