A short introducing of myself, i am martijn 38 and i am living in the netherlands.
I have 1 child and if i asked my wife if i we are married she says we are married so i guess that i am married
In the house i use a domotica controller the Homey, now we are building a veranda and on the homey forum i found a link of Wled so i thought i put a strip led on the veranda.
I ordered 1 meter ws2812b 5 volts 60 leds and it looks awesome, so much respect for the founders and developers it is really great.
But now i have a problem, the intention is to make 1 strip that is 6 meters long but i think i have a problem with the power supply on this length.
I know this is asked many times i think but every project is different.
The intension i also to switch it with a relay because otherwise the drivers are constantly on power.
What is the best solution in total.
use 12v leds instead of 5v?
use different model led’s? Which is the best. Am i right that the ws2815 every led has an adress and not like the 2811 that has every 3 leds an adress.
And how many ampere’s do i need for the 6 meters?
Every suggestion is welcome, and thanks for the answer in advance.
