    Any possibility of a wired version? I love them but I'd rather have all my controllers hard wired to avoid troubleshooting wireless issues.

    Probably not.. The little ESP8266 wifi board is doing all the heavy lifting for this controller. Everything else on the 'stick' is just handling power. You'd have to add a true ethernet controller to the board which would bump up cost and size (technically the ESP8266 has some wired ethernet functionality built in.. but its ugly and not complete)

    Its actually kind of amazing what the little $3 ESP8266 can do

    Hi,

    I'm new to the hobby and it seems that the ESPixelStick fits the bill for what I would like to do. Since I'm so new it seems that the Group Buy rules (member for at least a year) prevent me from participating. How would I be able to purchase some ESPixelSticks?

    I saw that requirement as well, I would gladly pay the subscription to help support the site. It was just the being a member for at least one year requirement that had me bothered.

    I thought the member for a year part was to run a group buy, not just to participate in one.

    Yes you're right. I just re-read the rules.

    Is there a wiki or something on this so I can learn more? I'm thinking this might be something I can use.

    Here's what I'm thinking I want to do. I don't really have a need for this in my show but I'm thinking I can use these around the house for various lighting; fish tank lights, under cabinet lights, mood lighting, etc. I have a bunch of 2811 pixel strips that will not be going back in my Christmas show but they can be used for this application.

    Since there won't be any sequencing involved, just constant colors, maybe very mild effects for the fish tank, could I include these on my home network or is it best to have a separate network? Could I run several of these from a RasPi running FPP? I'm just jumping into FPP and will be using it for my show this year. Getting to play around with it before had would be nice. Am I missing anything?
