Controlling strip LEDs

Hi guys,

Anything available for controlling RGB LED strips from the RPi GPIO?


What’s the issue with the google results for “controlling RGB LED strips from the RPi GPIO”?

I wrote this a while ago. It has been working in my testing, but I haven’t changed my light over yet permanently.
It uses MQTT.

Any feedback is welcome.

Thanks for the reply. I notice you mention WS2812b and upon looking it up, I notice it has 3 connections, my LED strip has 4 connections.

Can this still work?


It is using this library rpi-ws281x-python
you need to check if your type of LED Strip is supported by that library.

[edit] And I would not know what pin to connect the extra channel to
