Warm white pixels

Our neighbor is interested in putting pixels up on their house but wants to only use warm white leds.   I showed him what a RGB mixed warm white looks like and neither of us liked it.  I emailed Ray and he said his engineer said they cannot make them. The only thing I have seen in warm white is strips which I run away from.  Have you guys seen any warm white bullet style pixels from any other vendors?  Thanks

How did you set your RGB to WW.  I took a strand of regular LED warm white light that I liked, and set them next to a set of RGB pixels. Using FPP and a controller, I tuned the RGB color to match regular Warm White. From a short distant, my wife cannot tell them apart.

For standard bullets I used 255 185 35
Pixabulbs were 255 170 12


You can make pixels essentially any color.  Play with values until you get what you like - and as Sawdust said, it will vary between pixel types and even batches.
Using LOR (mostly SuperStar) for all sequencing - using FPP only to drive P5 and P10 panels.

I posted this in another thread.  There have been lots of posts over the years.  That is why I read or at least skim everything in multiple forums.

I have seen a number of post over the years on color combos folks think look close to the traditional AC incan white lights.  Have you seen and tried any of those combos.

Even the smart bulbs in my house can be turned to white, daylight or other combos.  Sometimes close is good enough.

Here are a couple I saved
255,180,90  with hue=22. sat=240,lum=90
249,154,68  with hue=28. sat=225,lum=149
