I have been reading for a few hours and I hope that I can now ask this question properly! I have an oven with 6 burners I would like to place a strip of W2812B LED above the knobs and then put a potentiometer on each knob connected to a Arduino Nano. When I turn on the gas the POTs will send signal to the analog inputs of the nano and change the lights from white to red but only the lights above the dial that's been used. All of the other lights will stay on in the standard white, illuminating the front of the oven in a pleasing way, when the burner is turned off the lights above will go back to the standard white.
I think the way to achieve this is divide the 55 led string into sections that correspond to the locations of the LEDs and have those be controlled by the individual POTs.
My question is- What are the correct terms to search for on this forum to achieve this? Is there some example code that shows a single strand of WS2812Bs with discrete groups of LEDs exhibiting different behaviors based on separate (analog) inputs. The ultimate goal is to have the LEDs get dimmer as the burner flame is decreased and maybe even turn green if the burner isn't lit but the gas is on, however that will come later after I add flame sensors.
The equipment list is -

Thank you all, this is my first post
Lastly, I saw something about LED's, LEDs, LEDS Please what is the preferred way of abbreviating more than one Light Emitting Diode! Thanks!
