I’m hoping to connect 2 strips of WS2812B or SK82112’s and having an electrician give his recommendations about wiring them on an outdoor patio.
I’m wondering if I can power the controller through USB then provide the power to the lights through 1 or 2 power supplies.
Right now I have it wired with power supply to 1) Red/Black on one LED strip and 2) Red/Green/Black to Vin/D4/Ground on controller - This works and seems to be the most common way of wiring
Would simply removing Red and Black from 2) and
Controller D4 => data (Green) on strips work?
Then injecting power at the beginning and end of each strip
