I am totaly new with Arduino and electronic in general. My background skills are Software development oriented and a fully geek spirit.
I wanted to know if my ideas are possible and then how to start, which components to choose and stuff like that.
My idea is to add some fun with LED Strips at home. I want to control the LED Strips from a mobile phone and to have the possibility to create fun lighting programs. Based on that, I read quite a lot of things and some reading retains my attention.
- LED Strips (each LED addressable vs. non addressable)
- Arduino boards
I also notice that sometimes other components are required and sometimes not. Not sure to well understand when. There is also the software part with the requirements of libraries depending of the LED strip chosen.
As I already mentionned, I do not know a lot about electronics/electricity (just basis). Then, I do not know what to choose and how to start.
I will really appreciate helps to start in my project.
