Super new to this Arduino stuff. Ill be using it mainly and only for programming led strip im helping a company with. they reached out to me to see if I had a viable option for them since im kind of a jack of all trades (master of none)
They want be able to cycle through 3 main colors (yellow, red and Green) on a digital pixel strip (ws2811) by pushing a button mounted inside of their office. Apparently, they use this strip as an indicator for visible reference somehow? They currently use a basic controller with a hand held remote but its cumbersome and the remote tends to get lost.
They came to me with hopes ill be able to program an UNO to cycle these 3 colors at the touch of a momentary button, then seal it inside of a box that can be mounted within feet of the led strip. I can easily combat signal drop and voltage drop.
So, thats what I've been into so far. A lot of google reading and playing with examples etc. Pretty neat how it all works and the adjustable settings work. its almost like building drones (sorta)
So, for now I guess ill be a lurking n00b who's trying to find stuff out! Thanks for reading! If anyone wants to lend a hand and gimme pointers id love to hear thoughts and opinions! Thanks folks!
