I’m in the process of creating a “Notification light” for my forthcoming trip to Norway. The plan involves using IFTTT watching the twitter channel @AuroraAlerts and a Particle Photon to flash the “Aurora” (Northern Lights) Colours when the KP index is =<4.
I have the code fully working using a single Breadboard-friendly NeoPixel however when upgrading this to a NeoPixel Ring (16 LED) the code does not run as expected
The current working code for a single NeoPixel can be found here: http://pastebin.com/eMSi3isd
It was my assumption that i would change Line 45 from one LED to Sixteen e.g.:
FastLED.addLeds<NEOPIXEL, 6>(&led, 1); // attach our one NeoPixel LED to pin 6
FastLED.addLeds<NEOPIXEL, 6>(&led, 16); // attach our one NeoPixel LED to pin 6
However when i run this code rather than all NeoPixels starting in a “off” state about 7 leds are alight (e.g. http://imgur.com/a/WOY1I) and when the IFTTT trigger is made only the top LED cycles through the colours.
Could someone please advise what i missing?
