RGBW Neopixel not working?

by Shelby33 on Thu Nov 25, 2021 5:47 am

Hello! I just finished setting up and compiling on my Adafruit Bluefruit 32u4 for use with Neopixel, for the Halo Energy Sword project. After I compiled the software, my neopixels work but not as intended. I am using RGBW LED's instead of RGBs. When I use the Bluefruit connect app and change the color to something other than white, the pixels are in an alternating pattern of red, green and blue. For instance, when I set the strip to green, the first led in the strip is green. But the next ones go blue-red-green-blue and so on.

Is this because I'm using a RGBW strip? Should I use a RGB strip instead? Or is it my software?

In your software, you need to specify that you are using an RGBW strip.
