That is where you are very lucky in terms of insulation material costs compared to we brits!

if you grab some foil faced insulation board, & make a small box to go round the unit heat will pretty much look after itself, ..tape up the sides with insulation foil tape so it's as air tight as possible, then where the vent is have a vent, but stick a scrap of tyvek there to keep moisture out, the insulation will be something you can monitor with a sensor / stick your hand into & gauge a few nights before by running it outside to be sure of any adjustments.

by insulating it properly it should totally look after itself heat-wise without a problem (but it does need an air vent, even if it's an led bulb).

Don't worry about it getting cold, worry about it getting too warm, thats the reality, a test run should cure that easily as air flow is adjustable.

Next gen for home haunters, ...possibly too graphic for sensitive (why are they out then)!? types.

What do you think of this, nice tie in with trick r treat franchise :Thumbs_Up:

Just bought this the other day, good enough for basic gaming (stuck some weed control fabric up as light blocking fabric).



Good enough for shorter throw animations, kids room on the Xbox (etc) too

Has image reverse! ...perfect for basic imagery.

Amazon prime day, bought another cheapy, the dvds will cost more than the unit

the unit description claims to be 120 lumens ..thats got to be erroneous, we shall see, bearing in mind how cheap led bulbs are.

oooh, BAD SCARE!!!! ..AVOID >>>>


Wall wart ran HOT straight out of box.
checked image via HDMI to xbox 360, looked at the various tiles on the screen, really sharp edges, picture changed & the lens needed refocussing, that is not what you want! (it wasn't my eyes)

less than 10 minutes operating time & it was re-packed for a return!

Would not deem this unit suitable for non demanding halloween images...

I bought this last year.... don't recommend it.


I wasn't able to get really good videos as I was taking them with my phone. I also used if for Christmas...
