Nice RGB LED sequences?

Hi all,

Now that I'm getting to grips with my Shellies. I am interested in making best use of the Shelly LED driver. This lets me remote set R, G, and B values from 0-255 as well as setting an overall "gain" from 0-100%.

While the built-in controller has a couple of sequences pre-programmed, they are pretty boring.

So I'm putting out a call for some nice RGB LED sequences that I can set up in Node-RED. I have a 5m string of RGB LED's, they are only cheap ones but still I have them wrapped around my office desk at the moment (where I spend most of my waking hours!) and would love to experiment with colour.

If I can get some nice enough effects, I may even be able to persuade my wife to allow them elsewhere in the house :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:

There must be someone more creative than me out there who either knows where some sequences can be found or is clever enough to make some up!


I have a a few strips around the house wired to Wemos D1 running wled

It can be interfaced to node red and has 100's of effects you can select from.


Interesting. I can see that a couple of people seem to have built firmware for the Shelly. I was hoping to avoid having to change firmware but I guess if I want the best from it.

I have done a couple of rainbow effects purely from Node-RED via MQTT.

Hi @smcgann99,
Thanks for sharing this nice link! Do you know if there is somewhere an overview of those effects available?

There is lots of info in the wiki -

I guess if you looked at the source, you may be able to translate that into node red to copy some nice effects ?

Awesome. Thanks!!

I had a quick look at the code of the effects, but not sure whether that will be easy to translate.

Hence I just flashed the firmware and switch it from node red :wink:


i have it running here and its very nice

Something special?


@BartButenaers @TotallyInformation I forgot to mention there are already several nodes and flows related to controlling WLED

That link with the large amount of effects had immediate my attention, because it would have been a nice node if we could have used that code. But only if it was a quick win (due to my lack of time), but unfortunately that isn't the case...
