RGB Led Strip
Make sure its 12v dc (if Its not 12v you will have to have a power supply with the same voltage as your strip.) and also that its pins are in the following order: VCC, B, R, G. If it isn’t in that order you’ll have to modify the Fritzing document to make the JP Led connections match your order.

12v dc Power Supply
2.1 mm recommended.

Power Jack (Generic)
Your power supply’s connector must fit in it. If you are using it with a PCB, a PCB mounted one is recommended. If you are using it with a breadboard it is easier to use one with screws for the cables.

Seventh Step

In this last step now you need to connect the Arduino to our Voltage Booster. We are going to use the jumper wires we connected in the second step to the MOSFETS. Connect them this way (you may vary this but the Arduino pin must support PWM and you must change the VS app config):

  • R Mosfet ~4 Arduino pin
  • G Mosfet ~3 Arduino pin
  • B Mosfet ~2 Arduino pin

Now to finish the connections connect a jumper wire to the ground (-) rail and then connect that one to the Arduino’s ground pin.

Set Up The Arduino

First Step

Set up your computer and your Arduino IDE according to your Arduinio

Note: be sure to add your compatible WiFi libraries.

Second Step

In the Arduino IDE click on File->Examples->Firmata->StandardFirmataWiFi

Schematics

RGB Controller PCB [Etchable (SVG)]

It is used to control the RGB LED Strip. This is necessary because most RGB LED strips consume 12v and the Arduino MKR1000 outputs 3.3v.

*Schematic or Fritzing versions are also available.

RGB Controller Fritzing

It is used to control the RGB LED Strip. This is necessary because most RGB LED strips consume 12v and the Arduino MKR1000 outputs 3.3v.

*Schematic or PCB versions are also available.
