When our lightning detector is triggered, we need a way to know that a storm is on the way so we’ll be programming a lighting scene with flashing thunder clouds using an individually addressable LED strip and Arduino. In between storms we don’t want our window to be lifeless so we’ll also program an alternate lighting scene that will play anytime it’s clear outside.
We’ll start with the very basics of the Fast LED library and move through more interesting and complex lighting patterns. Don’t know how to code? No problem, I’ll show you the exact code snippets you can use and how to change the colors to fit your own project.
