DIY Electric Fence Indicator Light
Location: Mille Lacs, MN
posted 2 years ago
Sadly, no, this is not a
showing how I made my own DIY indicator light.
Rather, I'm hoping someone can help me find a solution.
I want to have a visual indicator (flashing light) that tells me my electric
is on and functioning above 4,000 volts.
There are many units on the market, but they all seem to fail at least one of my qualifications:
1) That they flash with each pulse of the
. I want to look out my window before bed and get a warm and fuzzy feeling, knowing that my animals are safe from predators.
2) That they alert you to a drop below 4,000 volts. Almost all of the
say they will "warn you if voltage is low", but nearly all of them omit the spec and don't tell you what "low" voltage is.
3) That they function without a battery.
Any insights in to something already on the market?
Or if not, how I can make something that triggers an
at pulses above 4,000 vdc?

I had one as you describe; I'll see if I got it still (I think I have it at another house I have) and then we can see about shipping it to you. Too another Permie,

I stumbled across this product via a video ad.
... in case the url doesn't work here, just search "Tractor Supply Company Electric Fence Light"... I wanted to see if I could do a cheap (free) diy and found your post in my search results. I'm no electrician, so I don't want to experiment at using old Christmas
without some input. Has anyone tried direct wiring Christmas tree
to an electric fence?
