Now that I have resolved my ground issue, the light effect modes appear to be working as expected. However I am noticing that certain modes, there are random flickering of the lights. Here is an example of Merry Christmas.
Here is the hardware I have that I am using. I have two WS2811 12V LED strings to start off with.
- Meanwell LRS-350-12 Power supply
- ESP8266 NodeMCU
- BINZET DC Converter Step Down Regulator 5V
All cables are 18-22 gauge for the exception of the jumper wires.
Here is the updated wiring diagram
Any suggestions in which direction I should begin to troubleshoot?
The app settings are the default. I updated the LED count to 100 and tried to update the amps to 2amps with no change.
