LED Program Demo
All of these programs are available for both the basic and advanced kit. All programs except Color Chase, Fireball, Inferno, and Dragons Fire can be offered in any color other than white.
Product Components and Programming Guide
Picture 1 is the led strip and the connector, the strips can be cut along the middle of the copper solder points to be extended or shortened
Picture 2 is the ON/OFF rocker switch, the switches position can be moved by cutting and extending the wires. The switch can also be replaced with a smaller switch of your choice.
Picture 3 is the box that houses the program chip, the advanced kit will come with a blue usb to micro usb cable to connect with the arduino program used to edit aspects of the code
Picture 4 is the 3 AA battery holder and cover used in both of the Advanced and Basic Kits.
Picture 5 is the usb to micro usb connection that provides power to the micro chip. To power the micro chip you will need a usb power bank that is not included with the kit
To make adjustments to the code with the Dragons Fire Advanced Kit you will need to have the Arduino program installed on your computer. Arduino is a free legitimate open source programing software. Please contact us via This Email for a copy of the code on your strip for you to make adjustments too.
Making Adjustments To Your Code
The color of your code can be changed by adjusting the rgb numerical hexcode color values shown above. The first number refers to the brightness of the leds, 255 being the max. This Hex Code Calculator may be useful in selecting the rgb numerals you wish to adjust.
This number relates to the number of leds on your strip, if you cut, shorten, or resize your led strip, simply count the number of led pixels on the remaining strip and adjust this number accordingly.
This number controls the speed of the sequence, if you wish to speed up or slow down the sequence you may do so.
Uploading Your Program To The Led Strip
Make sure your usb cable is connected to both your computer and the led strip. Then go into TOOLS, and select BOARD then scroll until you select ARDUINO NANO. make sure to also go into PORT and select the usb you are using to connect your arduino. then go over to PROGRAMMER and make sure the USBASP option is selected. Then click on the upload arrow in the top left corner of the screen.
