neopixelbus light platform allows you to create RGB lights
in ESPHome for an individually addressable lights like NeoPixel or WS2812.
It is very similar to the FastLED Light platform. in fact most addressable lights are supported through both light platforms. The difference is that they use different libraries: While the fastled platform uses the FastLED library, this integration uses the NeoPixelBus library internally.
# Example configuration entry light: - platform: neopixelbus type: GRB pin: GPIO23 num_leds: 60 name: "NeoPixel Light"
name (Required, string): The name of the light.
id (Optional, ID): Manually specify the ID used for code generation.
effects (Optional, list): A list of light effects to use for this light.
type (Optional, string): The type of light. This is used to specify if it is an RGBW or RGB light and in which order the colors are. Defaults to
GRB. Change this if you have lights with white value and/or the colors are in the wrong order.
variant (Optional, string): The chipset variant. You can read more about these here (some of the info on that page is not entirely correct). One of these values:
ESP8266_DMA(default for ESP8266, only on pin GPIO3)
ESP8266_UART0(only on pin GPIO1)
ESP8266_UART1(only on pin GPIO2)
ESP8266_ASYNC_UART0(only on pin GPIO1)
ESP8266_ASYNC_UART1(only on pin GPIO2)
ESP32_I2S_1(default for ESP32)
BIT_BANG(can flicker a bit)
num_leds (Required, int): The number of LEDs attached.
invert (Optional, boolean): Invert data output, for use with n-type transistor. Defaults to
Pin Options: Some chipsets have two data pins to connect, others only have one.
If you have one line, only specify
pin, otherwise specify both
pin (Required, Pin): The pin for the data line of the light.
clock_pin (Required, Pin): The pin for the clock line of the light, for two-pin lights.
data_pin (Required, Pin): The pin for the data line of the light, for two-pin lights.
All other options from Light.
