I’m going to strip the wire. green is for data transfer white is for GND Red is for VCC (5v) Strip the wires.
this cable is for connecting with LED Strip. In the same way, strip 3 wires Twist the wires. This is called “Closed End Cap” Put the cap on the cables press the cap hard. It saves time dramatically The others are same In this way, you don’t have to solder it anymore. this is DC power plug. It has small screw and frame. it physically fix the wires with screw. Strip the wire slightly. put the wire into the MINUS ( – ) Screw and fix it. Red is for PLUS ( + ) Make sure it is firmly fixed This cable is for powering LED strip.
It will be plugged in a USB charger Let’s connect wires with the Arduino. Data pin is green. Put the cable to 5 of the arduino the Red cable is for VCC (5V) the white cable is GND. Put it GND pin Connect the terminal with LED Strip. Let’s attach LED Strip on the back of the monitor. Basically, LED Strip has double side tape. unfortunately, I removed them my mistake. I had no choice but to use Hot Melt glue. Attach LEDs from the left bottom connor WARNING : LED Strip has direction. You can see arrows on the LED Strip. Arrows go in order in other words, arrows must be like,
1->2->3->4->5->6->7->8->9->10 ->in my case, 9 LEDs are used for side. You need to remember the number of LEDs As you can see, you need to use the Hot Melt Glue for fix the corner. Hot melt Hot melt 15 LEDs are used for horizontal side. Go on the other side. 9 LEDs are used. use the hot melt for the corner as well. now, finish the last line Cut the rest of LED Strip. Attach the double side tape on the Arduino Board. You will need to use a box for enclosing the Arduino. At this moment, double side tape is only for temporary. It is essential to cover all electronic parts. Connect the cables. Plug the power The first step is downloading and Installing The Arduino IDE. Links are below description. install it If you use the original arduino, you can skip this step. If you bought a copied version, you will need this step. Download the file. extract all execute setup.exe just in case, press uninstall and install again. Download the source code for the arduino. links are in the below description. Download Zip file Extract all Open the file by double clicking Basically, the arduino source code files are needed to be in the folder named after the file name. so, just click OK Open Sketch – Include Library – Manage Libraries Search for “FastLED” press the install button and wait . adjust the number of LEDs. I used 48 LEDs (9 + 15 + 9 + 15) The DATA_PIN was 5. Select the board. Arduino / Genuino Uno open “Tools – Port” and memorize the COM ports. For example. there are COM3 and COM4 Plug the usb cable into the Arduino Open “Tools – Ports” and you will see one more COM port. Take a note for next step for setting. Select the COM port Hit the upload button Okay, now, the Arduino is ready. The last step is installing PC application for communication with the Arduino download the latest version Install Prismatic Check all Launch the application next select “adalight” We took a note the number of COM Port. write that number on serial port If you are not sure about the number,
Open the “device manager” – Port (COM & LPT) or Open the Arduino IDE and “tools – ports – ” There it is don’t change the others Select your monitor Type the profile name (you can just skip this) Try some features we are going to use Custom feature Top 15 / Side 9 / Bottom 15
Thickness 15% / Stand width 0% / Start offset -5 Click “Custom” button As you can see, boxes are popping up around your monitor. put -5 into Start offset and click Custom again Don’t worry, there are 1,2 is behind 3 calibrate the color by using 3 sliders. Thanks for watching! please subscribe
