In terms of addressable LED strips, the WS2812B and SK6812 come to mind as the most used. From my knowledge, WS2812B are RGB only while SK6812 is RGBW (there are 3 variants of the white).
I am looking to install SK6812 within my entertainment area because of the “W” as I’d like to set the strips to warm white when in general use and use the colours to get the party started. lol
But during my search, on Banggood I found WS2812B with RGBW. See the link https://www.banggood.com/1M-5M-WS2812B-5-Pins-RGBW-RGBWW-4-IN-1-LED-Strip-Light-Non-Waterproof-DC5V-p-1211152.html?rmmds=search&ID=51619044707&cur_warehouse=CN#customerQA
Now the question is, is their listing incorrect or does WS2812B come in a RGBW variant? If this is the case, does WLED support the “W” in the WS2812B RGBW as sold on Banggood? I would think that WLED would allow me to turn on the white only and use the different effects for the colours.
The issue is that since those LED strips are not available to purchase in South Africa, I have to import them, not to mention that from searching online, I’d have to import the snap connectors, corners, etc, etc, etc to connect them up properly, so I want to make sure that I make the right decision when purchasing the LED strips.
Looking forward to your response.
