Anyone on this board have the programmable Christmas Lights on their house?
I’m venturing down the rabbit hole this year finally. I tried this once before many years ago when controllers were still hand soldered and lights were held on with zip ties.
Last week I ordered an ESPixelStick, and a single string of 50 pixels. The idea was to use it as a POC to see how easy/difficult it was to get a sequence setup and working on the small string. I figured if it didn’t go well, I was only out $40.
I was very surprised to see that I easily had a small sequence up and running in about 15-20 minutes. There’s some very good videos on youtube that help walk you through the steps.
This morning I went ahead and ordered the materials to put lights just on the eaves of the house. I figure I’ll start small. If this works out, then I can add features later on.
