What is Addressable LED strip?

Individual addressable led strip is also called digital led strip, pixel led strip, programmable led strip, chasing led strip, magic led strip, or dream color led strip, is a led strip with control ICs that allow you to control individual LEDs or groups of LEDs. You can control a specific part of the led strip, which is why it is called ‘addressable’.

Addressable LED strip VS Analog LED strip

  • Analog strips allow you to have one color for the whole LED strip at a time. You can change the color anytime you want for the whole strip, but can’t change it for a section of diodes.
  • Digital strips allow you to have different colors for every cut of LEDs, creating various colors in different sections of one LED strip.
LED Strip Light - Light-emitting diode
Analog LED strip uses only one color at once
LED Strip Light - Light-emitting diode
Digital LED strip that can control each pixel separately

Addressable LED strip categories

  • SPI addressable LED strip
    The Serial Peripheral Interface (SPI) is a synchronous serial communication interface specification used for short-distance communication, primarily in embedded systems.
  • DMX512 addressable LED strip
    DMX512 is a standard for digital communication networks that are commonly used to control lighting and effects. It was originally intended as a standardized method for controlling stage lighting dimmers, which, prior to DMX512, had employed various incompatible proprietary protocols. It quickly became the primary method for linking controllers (such as a lighting console) to dimmers and special effects devices such as fog machines and intelligent lights.

There are a few varieties of LED strips available in the market. Some of them are automatic, and some are controllable through programming.
In the case of automatic LED Light Strips, the lighting pattern is not editable or changeable. This illuminates in a single pattern or some fixed pre-built patterns.
On the other hand, programmable LED strips can have customized illuminating patterns. It provides you freedom with more lighting patterns of different styles.

Yes. Of course, you can cut an addressable led strip. And it is possible to re-join them together. If you want to reconnect them after they’ve been cut, you’ll need led strip connectors.

Yes, we offer different IP grades waterproof: IP65(silicone tube), IP65H(heat shrink tube), IP67(silicone filling), IP67E(solid silicone extrusion), IP68(PU glue encased).

The density of LED – Number of LEDs per meter.
There are 30 LEDs/m, 60 LEDs/m, and 120 LEDs/m popular in the market.

FPCB – These are usually made of copper. The thicker, the better.
It helps to dissipate the produced heat into the environment.

Resistor – There are resistors attached to the led strip lights to get the precision of colored light and brightness.

ICs – The ICs of addressable led strip lights is the most important component.
They receive the signal from controllers then control the LEDs to change colors accordingly.

3M tape – Good quality 3M tape can assure the digital led strip not falling, and it’s good for heat dissipation.

Waterproof material – Silicone is better than epoxy resin. Silicone will not be changing yellow after long use.

No. Addressable RGB led strips are pretty cheap to run.
If you compare an addressable LED light to incandescent light, you will be surprised to see that LED lights consume up to 85% less energy than the light bulb.
You must spend USD 4.80 per year for a 60W incandescent light bulb.
A 12W LED light that illuminates the same amount of brightness as a 60W light bulb costs you only USD 1.00.
This indicates that addressable RGB led strips are not as expensive as traditional lights.

To control an addressable led strip, you need a motherboard with a microcontroller. You will also need software that supports its specific programming language.

Right now, there are multiple options available in the market. The remarkable controllers are ArduinoRaspberry Pi, LittleBits, Nanode, Minnowboard MAX, and Sharks Cove.

With thousands of codes available on the internet, you can have millions of illuminating patterns of your programmable led strips. You can even have your customized lighting effect as well.

Of course, you can.
Most of the addressable led strip lights available on the market are dimmable.
But, you just cannot dim your programmable led strips altering the voltages like traditional lights. Your lights must be connected to a controller.

Yes. It is possible to make curves with a digital pixel RGB led strip.
The majority of digital pixel RGB led strips can bend as they are naturally ductile.
But while bending, you need to be careful about the cut points.

If you are considering the lighting effects and patterns, the addressable led strips can be categorized into five types: Mono color; Dual color; RGB; RGBW; RGB + Dual color.

Yes, you can leave the programmable RGB led strip illuminated all night.
Such good features as low heat generation and low power consumption make it ideal for leaving it illuminated the whole night.
These programmable RGB led strips provide such cool lighting effects that make them perfect for setting in the background while sleeping.
But, some people can’t fall asleep while these LED lights are on.
For them, these lights disrupt the generation of the sleep hormone melatonin.

No electrical item is safe unless you use it safely.
Typically, the heat produced from the addressable led strips is too small.
This little heat doesn’t affect your wall that much.
Besides, the UV radiation from the addressable led strip is negligible.
That makes addressable led strips safer.

When you direct eye contact with an addressable RGB led strip, yes.
It is not wise to stare at an addressable RGB led strip despite emitting low UV radiation.
Long-term exposure to led strip lights could make your eyes dry.
So, it is suggested not to make direct eye contact with led strip lights with bare eyes.

No. They are not.
Since an individually addressable RGB led strip cannot produce extensive heat, they are not capable of burning skins either.
However, you must be careful about your eyes whenever you’re around led strips that don’t get direct contact with bare eyes.

No, it is not possible to get infected with cancer through the radiation of led strip lights in regular use.
But, a study has shown that more prolonged exposure to an individually addressable led strip may cause cancer.
Extended exposure to RGB led strip. Specifically, the emission of blue light is responsible for breast and prostate cancer.
Some RGB LED light strips don’t produce UV light and are less threatening for causing cancer.

No. Bugs don’t get attracted by the individually addressable led strip.
Bugs and insects usually get attracted to lights that have shorter wavelengths.
Traditional light bulbs like incandescent bulbs emit shorter wavelengths.
And that is responsible for attracting bugs and insects.
Since individually addressable led strips emit longer wavelengths, they don’t attract bugs.

No, not really. Individually addressable led strips generally don’t catch fire.
Conventional light bulbs emit lights from a vacuum.
That is why they get boiling over time.
An individually addressable led strip doesn’t emit light from the vacuum.
They don’t get that much hot while emitting lights.
Lights emitted by a programmable RGB led strip are remarkably cooler.
And a quality programmable LED light strip should not catch fire.

Individually addressable LEDs, get a delicate microcontroller on every one of them.
It allows each one to light double-A up with different color intensities.
A positive voltage line, a ground line, and a data line are all present on the strips.
The signal is scanned and transferred through the strip toward the next led every occasion it hits a led.
The first-ever chip detects the incoming signal as “1st”.
And then executes the “1st” instructions before passing the data to the next chip after increasing the counter value by one.
To put it another way, the very first LED tells, “Well, I’m 1st, and the next one who gets this signal is 2nd”
And this signal proceeds along the freeway until there remain no further LEDs.

Yes, running an individually addressable led strip with a battery is possible.
Generally, it takes 12V to run the addressable RGB led strip.
Usually, a double-A provides 1.5V.
So, to obtain a 12V with double-A batteries, you must add 8 of them together in a series.
And thus (8 x 1.5V) = 12V can be achieved.
In this way, you can run an individually addressable RGB led strip with a battery.

Test your pin attachments if your LED strip light does not turn on at all.
Very certainly, the pin isn’t properly inserted.
The pin could be defective in some circumstances.
If your individually programmable LED strips aren’t changing colors, consider turning them around and trying to connect them again.
A defective power source may cause the LEDs not to light up.
Consider plugging in a new voltage source to the same strip if you have multiple power sources.
Now observe how it works.
If it illuminates, you’ve got a defective power source and may need to replace it.

You can easily control your individually addressable LED light strip using a smartphone.
Most manufacturer companies of addressable LED light strips have their app in the google play store or iOS app store.
There are multiple third-party apps also available.
You can download the correct app for your addressable LED light strips and install it on your smartphone.
Now connect it to the addressable LED light strips via wifi.
Voila! If you install the correct app, you will control your addressable LED light strips with your smartphone.
There are some apps like – Lumenplay®, LampUX, Dabble, etc

For example, let’s consider you have a widespread and popular WS2812B addressable LED strip.
Now, to connect this with a Raspberry Pi, you need to have these components first –
A raspberry pi, a logic level converter and a WS2812B addressable led strip.
At first, we will have to use a logic level converter to facilitate a 5V logic since the raspberry pi runs on 3.3 V Logic.
As the WS2812B LED light strip consumes huge power, you must use an external power supply source.
A single pixel takes 20mA on average.
Consider it as 30 LEDs per strip.
Then, the requirement for 30 LEDs would be (30 x 20mA) = 600mA and up to 1.8A.
Make sure you have a power supply powerful enough to run the led strip.
For Code:
Install the python-support and run the code –
curl -L | bash
Then make sure to navigate the examples with the following code –
cd rpi_ws281x/python/examples/
Lastly, use sudo to execute strand test script using the code –
sudo python
That’s it. Now you’re good to go.
For better understanding, please follow the link –

Yes, of course. The addressable led strips can be attached to Arduino to control the lighting patterns.

The procedures of the connection are stated below –

Step 1: Join each gate leg of the 3 MOSFETs to Arduino pins 9, 6, and 5, and a 10k resistor in line with each to the ground rail.

Step 2: Attach the ground rail to the Source legs.

Step 3: Join the Drain legs to the RGB connectors.

Step 4: Attach the 12V connector and the power rail.

Step 5: Also, Arduino ground should be connected to the ground line.

Step 6: The power rails should be connected to 12V power

Now, use a USB to power the Arduino board.

For better understanding, please follow the video –

Yes, it is essential to have a power supply for programmable LED strip lights.
The power source you usually have in your household has more voltage than you need to run LED light strips.
Generally, most of your programmable LED strip lights run at 12V.
So, it would be best if you used a power supply to maintain the correct voltage for your LED light strips.
Besides, if it is not controlled, your LED strips will burn out due to an overflow of voltage.
Severe electrical accidents may take place if you aren’t careful about them.

The average length of a WS2818b programmable LED light strip is 16 feet, equivalent to 5 meters.

When lit, addressable led strips are typically less hot than the traditional incandescent bulbs.
But they get hotter and usually 20°C -30°C hotter than the room temperature.
At a room temperature like 25°C, the average temperature of addressable LED light strips could be as much as 55°C.

WS2818B LEDs can be regulated for color and light, making it simple to produce breathtakingly sophisticated effects
It usually has built-in lighting effects.
So, it can be controlled through simple controllers.
Or you can program the lighting effect on the computer and push it to the SD card.
And use the controller to run the lighting programs to control the strips.
To achieve optimal illumination, you’ll need an LED controller.

If you just want to know what kind of LED strip you have, you should use a caliper to calculate the measurements.
The four-digit integer shows the length and width of every strip LED chip.
“SMD3528,” for instance, indicates that the chips are 3.5 millimeters wide and 2.8 millimeters long.
For the addressable led strip light models like 3528, 2835, 5050, 5630, 5730, etc do mean the dimension of LED.
But things like WS2811, WS2818, WS2812, etc, indicate the IC model the LED is using.
You can contact the addressable LED strip supplier for detailed information.

Of course, you can.
Connecting your addressable according to the voltage recommended will work nicely.
But you don’t get the freedom to control the lighting pattern independently.
You have to enjoy the built-in lighting effects, and your LEDs will run absolutely fine.

You can buy the addressable led strips at your nearest super shops and markets.
Or, you can directly buy them online.
Different quality led strips with varying price ranges are available on Amazon, eBay, and your local e-commerce sites.
Buy and light your project.
You can also buy addressable led strips from LEDYi lighting for quality addressable led strips at an affordable price.

You can control the brightness of your addressable LED light strip with a compatible remote.
Besides, you can generate codes on the microcontroller through programming and easily control the brightness all by yourself.
Installing a DC PWM controller will allow you to control the brightness of your addressable LED light strip.

There are a lot of addressable LED strip manufacturers right now in the market who produce good quality addressable LED light strips.

Some of the renowned are –

  1. Goove
  2. Nexillumi
  3. L8star
  5. DayBetter
  6. Cotanic
  7. WenTop

Besides them, LEDYi lighting, a first-class quality addressable LED strip manufacturer, offers quality LED light strips at a very reasonable price.

Yes, sometimes heavy voltage drops can negatively affect LED strip lights.
When the voltage drops, the lights get dim.
This happens due to improper wiring of the LED strip lights.
Besides, as the led strip length gets longer, the higher the possibility of voltage drop.

There are no such precautions other than some general norms like –

  1. Not bending or twisting the light strip along its side axis
  2. While cutting the strip, cut it along the vertical line
  3. Use proper power supply for the LED light strip
  4. Try not to make direct eye contact with the LED light strip

30,000 hours approximately.
Programmable LED light strips usually have much higher longevity than traditional bulbs.
A WS2818B LED light strip can illuminate for more than 5+ years if it is lightened 12 hours a day.
This has really been a considerable lifetime.
After five years of service, it doesn’t get useless. Instead, it still keeps illuminating with more than its 70% brightness.
