I have a dumb rgb strip on my rv I want to cycle between purple and gold. Is there a 3 channel controller I can program and just let it run independent of a computer controlling it


It seems like Ray has a lot of standalone RGB controllers that can do this.  Some with a little remote control that might be handy for the RV.    I've been thinking of doing this myself.


Many of the RGB strips include an infrared controller when you buy a reel. I had some but sold them to someone lighting their house. You could easily program custom colors. Purple is easy.  Gold, not quite accurate.

The 3-channel dmx controllers from ray have a test mode that cycles through the 3 colors creating nice blends.
but, to limit to purple and gold I think you'd need a computer playing a sequence.

connect a fpp with a cheap $10 dongle and you can control that string with DMX.  |  110K channels, 50K lights  |  Nutcracker, Falcon, DLA, HolidayCoro


sorry been off line a while. Which dongle would be needed to have the fpp control the dmx dumb string. I have a couple, like an amazon dongle I used to control my renard ss24 and I have an rs485 from LOR. Any guidance on this would be appreciated.


As long as it's supported in debian Linux, it should work. Best to just connect it, power up your Pi and see if it gets recognized.
