The future has landed in small pixelcontroller for RGB LEDs
ESPArtStick line are a small pixel controller designed to control a single addressable LED pixels/neopixels using a special shield and for the Wemos D1 mini. Works with FPP and xLights.
In the last few years, individually addressable RGB lights have been getting cheaper and cheaper. These lights contain a small controller chip alongside the RGB LED which makes it show a certain color. The controller chips have a serial data input and output, and can be daisy-chained together. In this way you can control many different lights using just a few control wires (rather than needing wires going to each individual light).If you’ve played around with controlling LED pixels, you know that getting the infrastructure set up to control your pixels can be quite time-consuming.
The 4 Pixel LED Controller is compatible with FPP and xLights, making it the perfect solution for both amateur and professional lighting designers. With an integrated 10/100 Ethernet network switch, power and data indicators, and a 5-24V input supply, this controller is easy to set up and use.
For added convenience, the 4 Pixel LED Controller comes equipped with a micro USB connector for firmware uploads or controller support, a CH340 USB serial converter, and a built-in programmer for Arduino and ESP-IDF. It also features Wi-Fi (2.4ghz internal) and BLE connectivity, with an optional external Wi-Fi module available.
With an Ethernet 100Mb interface and a MicroSD card for standalone option, the 4 Pixel LED Controller offers unparalleled flexibility and control for all your LED lighting projects. And with an infrared receiver, you can easily control your lighting projects remotely.
So whether you're looking to add some ambiance to your home or create stunning lighting displays for your business, the 4 Pixel LED Controller is the ultimate tool for all your LED lighting needs. Get yours today and take your LED projects to the next level!
The Pocket Pixel controller is a standalone controller that does not require additional software to purchase or use. With WLED preinstalled you have the power to control 4 ports of lighting operation. The Pocket Pixel controller allows you to control via Wi-Fi or Ethernet so you can delivery fast and responsive results to your lighting needs.
With the Pocket Pixel you can choose either 5v or 12v up to 24v (RGB) pixels with each port having 3 wire for power, data, and ground each assigned individually. With each having a fuse and power light to display if all are in power, you can setup and use the Pocket Pixel with ease.
Each port has a 3 wire phoenix connector, you have the ease of having you lights ready to plug and play into the Pocket Pixel controller.
The Pocket Pixel is also easy to mount to a cable guard CG-550 enclosure of other enclosures as the base of the the Pocket Pixel has mounting holes that align with an array of enclosure removing the need for an additional mounting plate.
The Pocket Pixel has an ease access micro USB port to allow for changes or support of the Pocket Pixel or to change the installed firmware completely such as WELED, EspixelStick or many others as the Pocket Pixel uses an ESP-32 Wroom chip with a CH340 device drivers allows for a quicker plug and play access to the main Pocket Pixel system in the event changes are required.
The Pocket Pixel has WLED already installed and you can access via a Wi-Fi device to finish your setup or simply plug into you Ethernet network and access directly to begin your setup process of pixels to use per port and if you want to setup the Wi-Fi configurations to your network.
With super fast response rates, you can run the Pocket Pixel at 40 FPS xLight Sequences with well over 600 pixels per port and up to 1020 pixel per port at 20 FPS (Note: Wi-Fi to Pocket Pixel pixel speed greatly depend on the connection strength and outside network congestion)
First Time Usage.
Plug you Pocket Pixel into your existing network, open a web browser and go to 192.168.1.27
You can also access via WiFi by selection WLED-AP and the password is wled1234 Open a web browser and go to 18.104.22.168

Incorporating LEDs into an electronic project used to be a veritable rat’s nest of wires and custom code. The arrival of dedicated LED driver chips brought welcome relief, offloading grunt work from the micro controller and allowing one to focus on the application. Much simpler, but still not “Christmas light” simple.The ESP Art StickIntegrates Lights in the latest advance in the quest for a simple and affordable full-color LED that is easy to use.
