Thanks, harro!

I think I did get the fog reservoir worked out last weekend with a temporary setup (no pictures, alas), but installing it and final testing more will have to wait until I'm back from The Hukilau.

Sooo… since the volcano just got featured on Critiki today (squeeeee!), I figured I ought to wrap up this making-of thread!

Here's a video of the volcano in action, with sound, smoke, and lights:
https://youtu.be/sU4Sf7rrq_E

I did a full write-up of the making-of on my Vixen Labs blog:
https://vixenlabs.com/2017/02/18/kilauea-cove-raspberry-pi-active-volcano/

All of the parts are linked from that one master blog post.

In addition, all of the wiring diagrams, animations, and Raspberry Pi code are here on my Github:
https://github.com/bobtiki/kilaueacove

Sorry I let this languish for so long! But now on to improvements for Kilauea Cove v.2.0!

Your area looks great. I don't suppose you have come across a program that would make LED strip lights change colors very slowly? I have LEDs on my fence around my area and would like them to shift colors slowly to the point of imperceptibility. All stock controllers change the lights fairly rapidly. I want people come over sit down and after about 15 minutes realize the lights look different. I'm thinking the answer lies in an arduino based solution. But I'm a complete noob. Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks! The code you use would depend on which LEDs you have, but at least Adafruit (and other companies, I'm sure) have sample code to show how to simply control their LED strips with a smooth color rotation. Usually there is a very small delay number between the change to the next gradual color, but in your case, you would make the delay number much larger. If you know which kind of LEDs you're using, I could probably point you to some sample code.

The ones I have on the fence are SMD 5050 RGB LED 5m Strips (20m total).

As luck would have it, Adafruit has a nice tutorial on controlling those 5050 LEDs. They even have sample code for fading colors, like you want. FADESPEED is the variable that you'll want to jack up.
