RGBW Downlights--Integrating

I purchased these downlights from Ray Wu with the intention of integrating them in my outside recessed lights as part of my show. I just got them and tried to wire them up, but can't get them to light. I got the 5 wire RGBW 24v lights. I figured I just needed to connect the data lines together, but no dice. Any suggestions of how I can integrate them most efficiently? I've got a variety of controllers--Falcon, Experience Lights, ESPPixel Sticks & Kulp. Ideally, I'd be able to use one of them natively and not have to use a DMX controller.

Those lights (if I found the right ones) need a pwm driver like a ws2811 pixel driver capable of passing 12v and decent current. There are lots of controllers for them that don't have ws2811 input. A DMX style controller could probably do it. Or if you can find some robg flood controllers. But Ray probably has something. Email him and ask for a controllable RGBW led driver. Maybe something like ?


Your link does not work but from your description, it looks like these are not node based downlights.  This type is referred to as dumb strings.  The 5 wires are usually power and 4 ground wires, one for each color.  Others use 4 power wires and a common ground.  None of these are data lines.  You need to contact Ray to see what controller(s) he has to deal with these or at least to see if they are common anode or common cathode lights so that you can get the proper controller for them.

A mentioned above I think you have dumb leds

"I got the 5 wire RGBW 24v lights."  that would wire 24v+, R-, B-,G-,W-


Thanks. That's helpful and tracks with what I was seeing. 

I emailed Ray and will see what he says. Hopefully I can sort it out.
