I’m sure some in this community will create some really awesome effects with the Inovelli Red Series Smart LED Strips, so please go ahead and use this post to share! Feel free to also share anything next else that you’ve done with your Inovelli LED strips!
For those that have purchased an Inovelli LZW45 LED strip and didn’t know, it is possible to create some custom effects:
Here is one effect I created to simulate police lights when the HSM alarm is triggered. It is based on the example provided by Inovelli but with some tweaks. It’s not one you will want to have on for too long - will probably give you a headache! But hey, it should also be unpleasant to an intruder!
It does require at least 2 separate LED strips. The first (strip 1) will rapidly blink red, and the other (Strip 2) will rapidly blink blue. The code below was generated with the LED Strip Toolbox:
The generated numbers go in the driver’s “Custom Effect Start” box to have the effect manually generated. It can also be triggered as a “Custom Action” in Rule Machine :
When I purchased mine, I added a few extra foot long strips to the order, just in case one failed and they don’t have anything left in stock.
I haven’t found any other light strips that incorporated both the tunable white and Addressible LEDs. In most situations, the tunable white is what I use, but once in a while, I like to use the Addressible LEDs.
I am really hoping that one day there will be a possibility to set the pixel Colors of any/all the pixels in a strip.
