Apologies for jumping in with a new thread as a new user, but having spent hours searching the forums to no avail, I thought it time to simply ask!
I am brand new to PixelBlaze (though have been coveting one here in the UK for ages), and relatively beginner with code, so apologies as well if this is a silly and obvious question. I don’t THINK it is, but I could be wrong!
I am looking to make a simple wireless on/off trigger with a button to turn my LEDs on and off remotely. I had been looking into using an RF transmitter and receiver as they are cheap and low power, and have got this successfully working on an Arduino.
The big question: is it even possible to get the Pixelblaze to recognize signals being received on the RF receiver and translate that into turning the lights on and off? My research seems to be pointing me towards ‘No’ but also ‘Maybe but it’s complicated’.
My Arduino board DOES have an ESP32 chip and therefore could probably theoretically do the same functionality over WiFi instead, but I know this to be a much more power hungry option and thus wanted to see if it’s possible to make a lower power wireless remote for the Pixelblaze.
Frankly, any further information or help in getting set up to trigger the animations wirelessly would be SUPER appreciated!
