LedStripComposite – Android App

This android app provides basic control of a WS2812 Led Strip. There is a slide control for each color: Red, Green, and Blue. Together these controls set the brightness and color of the led strip. The app also calculates the current needed to supply the given settings. This app requires the NorseBridge WS2812 LED Strip Controller as the interface to the led strip.

Introducing the NorseBridge Bluetooth Programmable Controller

The unit uses the PIC16F1509 micro controller from Mirochip and the HC06 Bluetooth module from Wavesen. This combination used in conjunction with an Android App enables a user to configure many remote control functions from their Android Phone. Applications include robotics with stepper motor and servo motor control, remote sensing, remote switch, display driver, and many related functions all controlled from your phone.

The first application released for the module is as an LED Strip controller for the WS2812 RGB LED. The module will be available on Amazon.com soon. A free Android app will be available for download in the download section of this site.

WS2812 LED Strip Controller

The unit is based on a PIC micro-controller from Mirochip and the HC06 Bluetooth module from Wavesen. This module is configured as a WS2812 LED Strip controller and is available on Amazon.com. An Android app is also available for download from either NorseBridge or Amazon.

The WS2812 Controller Module has 7 ports featuring the JST B3B-ZR polarized header. Each port is identical and sends the same control command to its strip. Most LED strips use the JST-SM 3 jack as an interconnect. The Controller Module comes with one JST ZHR-3 to SM-3 plug adapter cable.

One to seven WS2812 LED Strips can be used with this module and the Mokungit brand is an acceptable choice.

The controller also requires a 2.1/5.5mm power adapter among which the ZIUMIER brand appears to be a good value.
