NeoPixel Ring - 12 x 5050 RGB LED Controller questions

by NineFingers on Mon Aug 24, 2020 3:53 pm

Good day all,
Are the NeoPixel Rings compatible with off the shelf controllers / drivers? I am in need of a controller that is Alexa / Google compatible. The NePixel Ring 12 form factor fits my project perfectly, but I do not want to use a PI or Duino for the controller.

Would something like this be usable?

Thank you,
Jason

The link you posted does not mention what protocols are supported. You might want to ask the seller for more technical information.

The Neopixels use WS2812B or SK6812 LEDs. So any controller designed for use with WS2812 or SK6812 should work.

Many thanks for the info. I found a few different controllers that work with this ring. Project is underway again.
