Hello Arduino Community, I'm currently in the middle of making a lighting system for my cabinet, I'm wanting it to turn the lights on when each draw opens as well as detect motion in the equipment sections (so when someone puts their hand inside the light for that section will turn on.
The I'm wanting to use RGB LEDs and a universal remote to change the light settings.
The problem I'm having is, I'm just starting to test a few things out and can already see that the lights become dimmer and dimmer for each LED I add to the "mix" so what should I use to power all this? when I'm testing this I had it hooked to my laptop but I will be hooking it to a USB power adapter. I've tried both of those methods just to see it the current will be any stronger to keep the LEDs bright but nothing.
[u]So what kind of components should I use?[/u]
