Ardunio 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. It's awesome! Waiting for sources...

  2. This is the most wonderful led programming i have seen!
    Please share your arduino code, its almost Christmas!

  3. It's just divine!
    I'm really looking forward to your arduino code

  4. hello, Stephen Culley please tell me how the swami can be contacted

  5. Is your code ready??
    I am waiting for your code or sketch!

    The default effects are dull compardd to yours!!


  6. Could you share at least one function in Arduino? I would like to implement the glow algorithm you called "Pixie Dust". Thank you.

  7. Hi Stephen! Great project! Maybe today is the good "later date"? ;) Please share source codes for arduino. Happy Christmas!

  8. Hi Stephen! Great project! Maybe today is the good "later date"? ;) Happy Christmas!

  9. It's very wonderful, please share your code and Christmas fairytale!
