I’m building an LED pool light based on this video: Build the BEST LED Pool/Spa Light, for $59! Better Than Anything On The Market. - YouTube
I have 3 - 9w leds in each pool light
IC type - WS2811 IC
Input Voltage - 9W: DC12-24V
I’m using a brand new Dig Uno board with wled and am having a problem with wled changing the colors correctly (the app also appears very unresponsive even though the wifi signal is 90% although that isn’t my primary complaint). I’m pretty sure the issue has to do with length of the data wire. If you think that is the issue, can you recommend a solution? I’ve read about level shifters but I’m just not sure if I need that with the Dig Uno.
Apologies for putting so much stuff in one post but I also have 2 ways of wiring things and wanted to see if one is preferred over another. I’m leaving off the main pool controller with GFCI, etc.
Edit: I think the length of the run may be more like 50 feet. As soon as I can get back out there, I will confirm.
Thanks in advance!
