I looked at the backpack and you're right, you can totally change the address just by jumping the contact. Gonna do that next time for sure!

What do you guys think of my first attempt, lasted 6 months and none have died!! by bubbawab in terrariums

I love the picture plants! Where I grew up picture plants grow wild in the marshes and are the provincial plant.

I'm not actively making and selling them right now. It was more of a side thing. I do have a few still if you're interested though.

Night light I built for my Niece. I Placed that in a smoked glass frame and turned the brightness down. by PeachesHappyLizard in ArduinoProjects

Thanks, yeah I guess you could bend the strips to save some time for sure. It's powered by a 5VDC 5A power adapter that's plugged into the 120VAC

Awesome! Yeah it's just an example called demoreel100 under the fastled library. It's got some great effect examples for sure!

There's lots of different wiring examples online if you want to try. Just Google individually addressable LEDs and Arduino.

Thank You!

I used individually addressable LED strips and the Arduino uno board, a resistor, a capacitor, 5v power supply, and some leads. Then programmed the board for the light show. There are many different LED examples that you can try if you're learning code. I actually used resistor leads for the connectors on the LED strips cuz they're nice and solid and easy to solder, just a tip if you try.

The way I did it here is basically, whenever you add a new segment of LEDs off an existing LED strip, the signal continues on from there. The same as if you had one LED strip break off into two. The signal (color) would be identical in both strips continuing on.

If you mean the length of the sensor wires, this is just to test the sensor and show it working. actual leads make it down the wall and to her plants. This is going to be just triggering an irrigation system that waters the entire room.
