Hey all, new user here. So over a year ago, I installed WS2812B lights on my house for permanent lighting. I have been using them over the last year, and they are running great. This year I am adding some holiday lighting items to the yard for a Christmas lighting show. I do not have any DMX, ARTNET, E1.11 or any other controllers to use, all I am using is a few ESP8266 devices and Xlights to control the ESP8266(s) I have 1 ESP8266 that controls the 622 ws2812b LEDs on the main house that I installed a year ago. I also configured another ESP8266 to control the leaping arches in the yard and everything so far is running great.
What I want to do is add some Spot / flood / Stage lights to the show, but I am getting confused when it gets to this level. Reading up on E1.31, it says that E1.31 is basically DMX. I can’t find any specific flood / stage lights that say E1.31, so I am wondering if any DMX light can be controlled with WLED / Xlights using E1.31 as long as I provide external power to the light? I see DMX lights use either a 3 pin, or 5 pin connection, so I am not sure how that would wire up to an ESP8266.
So for example, if I want to use this DMX Light can this be used with an esp8266 running WLED, or would I need some other hardware or shield in between the light and the ESP8266?
I am not sure if any of this makes sense, but if someone can help me understand this that would be great.
