Arduino Christmas Lights Preview - WS2811 / Arduino Mega2560





Preview of some of the effects I have programmed to run in real time on an Arduino Mega2560 that is displayed every Christmas outside my house. More effects are added during the years with more and more lights. The intention is to create a Christmas feeling where by it looks magical and not cheep and tacky.

The full setup runs 4 channels of 200 leds and are processed with in an effects stack, individually and grouped in to sets and can apply different effects per frame.

A cut down version (Source Code) running one channel of of lights on an Arduino Nano will be available at a later date.

    1. Chill... It takes time to write this stuff and test and make it stable. I don't make any income from any of this and I am not going to be selling it... it will be released once its ready... and its ready when I feel happy that it accomplishes its goal :D

  12. Thanks for your post. I’ve been thinking about writing a very comparable post over the last couple of weeks, I’ll probably keep it short and sweet and link to this instead if thats cool. Thanks.
