i want to install some more LED Strips in my house. At the moment im running Homeassistant with lot of Zigbee lights and stuff. Ich have 2 Lidl LED Strips already in place but i think they are not the best in quality.
I starting reading espacially around the BTF Stuff but im getting more confused, the more im reading :-).
My first idea was to order an D1 Mini and because of the 5v from the D1 a Powersupply with 5v and 10A + an LED Strip with 5V.
But then i found Post regarding the cheap SP511E and the option to use it with WLED.
What i really like on that solution is that it can be used from 5V - 24V and the cabeling could be really clean because most of the things can be plugged together without cutting and soldering.
But now a lot of questions:
-What LED Strip should / can i use with this controller after flashing to WLED Firmware?
I have found an article that SK6812 would have great light but lot of users are using the WS2812B.
And then i found the FCOB RGB IC Light Strip WS2811 Addressable 720 630 LEDs Dream Full Color 12mm 12V 24V that also sounds amazing in light quality.
- What is the max Watt / Ampere i can use with the SP511E?
On some page i have seen a info for Max. Lasts-Energy = 900Pixels?
- Should i really get the SP511E controller or is my first idea (D1 Mini) aber better solution?
Soldering is not problem but i like the idea of having everything clean with a case and connectors…
Also the 5V limitation is a disadvantage in my opinion.
Lot of questions but maybe someone has an anwer for me :-).
Thx in Advance and sorry for my bad english.
