Introducing the NodeLED!
A fully featured NodeMCU and switch mode power supply integrated with 46 WS2813 LEDs. With input voltages of up to 28V this little board is perfect for DIY smart home projects by allowing use of almost any power supply you may have laying around already.
Existing LED arrays are just bare LEDs on a PCB, meaning that you have to mount both a microcontroller and a power supply in a case to be able to use them as general lighting. The NodeLED was designed from the ground up to integrate everything needed to build DIY lighting projects on one PCB and allow everything to be powered by a single power cable of almost any voltage to make permanent deployment fast, easy, and clean.
Some smart light bulbs work great when illuminating with white light but are very dim when they output colors. NodeLED provides very bright color modes, with each of the three color channels having almost 5 watts of LED output power which provides a similar level of light output as a 60 watt incandescent light bulb
Since the NodeLED has all the same hardware as a real NodeMCU, you can easily program it using the Ardiuno IDE. This allows you to create your own software from scratch or use an existing project. Suggested projects to try out include DiyHue and the Tasmota project.
I personally use two panels as back-lighting on my computer monitor (last photo) while runnning DiyHue firmware. This allows me to control them with the phillips hue ecosystem and take full advantage of the Hue Sync software to sync the lights with my games as demonstrated in the video below.
