1st time doing this so I wanted to get a few cheap in line controllers. I saw some that were almost as small as the strip itself. Want to make up a few to get an idea of what I can do with it to compliment a beamworks. Question is will the memory erase using the timer in line in front of control? Can someone recommend a single 3ch unit that would save memory when without power? I have seen some with controller and timer but they seem difficult. That and the # of different ones out there intimidate me. Not really diy electronic savy. Thanks!
