Arduino + WS2812B

I was wondering if I can control my WS2812b with my Arduino and Blynk via Wifi with something like zeRGBa.
I have an ESP8266 hooked to some WS2812B and I am controlling them with zeRGBa, and by playing with IFTTT and the Maker Channel I was able to control them via my Amazon Echo Alexa (by just sending web requests to my project with RGB numbers). What I want to do is make the exact same thing but without an ESP and just the Arduino Uno connected to my PC/Mac and Blynk.

Thank you for your precious help ! :slight_smile:

Yes, it works the same way. Just add the library, attach gnd and data and start sending signals

Thank you for your reply. Wich library should I use ?

I recommend the FastLED library and NOT the included Adafruit Neopixel. The last one is really slow.

My project can help you get started (or just use it if you like)

Ok so my LEDS are on the Digital Pin 6 on my arduino. Whatโ€™s the setup I should use on the Blynk app ? Iโ€™m sorry Iโ€™m a noob with Blynk/Arduino

Yes thanks Iโ€™m already using it :slight_smile:

Cool! You got it working? Should be able to just flash and then load up the blynk app and build the interface according to the settings.h file.
