    Basically, you can run any of the 3 wire pixels with ESPixel Sticks and Pixel Pops controllers.
    Here's a wiki that has links to lots of info:

    There are hacks for the ESPixelstick, but I would check out Dirk's store. He has kits that would do what you need.

    You can drop him a line or he may see this thread and respond.

    I think the one's he is referring are dumb RGB by the looks of it even though they use pixel in the name.....Kinda confusing link description but looks like they are 2 wire.

    Thanks for all the replies....

    the lights are 5v leds, with no data cable, only ground and vcc.
    The question is... is it possible to wireless these kind of lights?

    Thank you all again

    Yes, the RenStick should do the job. RenStick is wireless, has four channels and it's been a popular product for static strings of LEDs like the ones you've chosen.

    i did it...

    espixel with a simple led string... but now i need some help with voltage.



    Espixel with 5v pixel node

    SAM_0001.jpg


    cuted ( dremmel) the pixel node to expose anode and cathodes

    SAM_0004.jpg


    Connected the + from pixel node to + on the led string
    Connected the "blue" from pixel node to - on the led string

    SAM_0008.jpg



    and it worked
    Tested with Vixen and also worked.
    SAM_0007.jpg



    Now the problem that i have is that the voltage drop to 2.71 and its only with 7 leds connected.
    If i connect some more the voltage continue dropping and the leds lose intensity.

    SAM_0006.jpg


    Does anyone have some suggestions to increase the voltage to 5v??

    Best Regards
    Zelev

    It is called an rgb amplifier. Here is an example:

    Also you can save yourself tearing apart a pixel, you can order the PCBs for a few dollars
