HolidayLEDs2.0

I'm leaving this repository up for reference purposes, but I highly recommend using WLED instead for your holiday lights: https://github.com/Aircoookie/WLED

Currently not working with ESP8266 Core 2.5.2, working on it. For now please use 2.4.2.

This repository is to accompany my Holiday LED 2.0 youtube video:

this new version is easier to setup and can support 6 zones dynamically

The node-red portion of the configuration is no longer needed, all processing is handled in the arduino code.

Setup Instructions

Fill out the entire USER CONFIGURATION section of the code.

It is recommended that you leave at least 2 zones enabled, leaving only a single zone seems to result in jittery animations.

SK6812 RGBW Use

This library is a drop in replacement for FastLED: https://github.com/coryking/FastLED?fbclid=IwAR2wB4Y355hAVIkJOOriP5czAUnqmLCtXT8DnbRf3vbUHPRnAR-ceZjJ74 just switch out your FastLED library folder (arduino/libraries/FastLED) with the one from that link and add #define FASTLEDRGBW at the top of the sketch. I also had to compile with ESP core 2.4.2, but that's an issue with my program, not the library.

Troubleshooting

-If you get a linker error while compiling in arduino, update your ESP8266 boards manager

-Fire animations are not currently working, I made a couple errors when making them modular, I will fix when I get a couple hours to devote to it.

Home Assistant YAML

##This version of the holiday lights code does not require the node red portion
##The "W" slider under the main "holiday LED" light modifies each effect
##The "W" slider under "Glitter" light modifies the frequency of glitter, the RGB selection changes the color of the glitter
##The "W" slider under "Lightning" switch modifies the frequency of lightning.
##You must replace the [MQTT_CLIENT_ID] with the USER_MQTT_CLIENT_NAME you specified in the arduino USER CONFIGURATION section
