    Default Can Renard SS24 drive these lights

    https://www.aliexpress.com/store/pro...7a994e4akOdACq

    Was looking to use those instead of store bought light to give the house a more modern look- don't want to jump into Pixels just yet, but figured this would give me the pixel look.

    Thoughts? Anyone used these? Would these be dimmable or just on/off?

    the ss24? no. one of the other ss varients that have dc outputs? yes


    2019 - Just moved into a new home (yet another change of plans). Will be dim but not dark. Too much to do at the new place to leave time for a show.

    Sorry should have been more clear....I would have these running with a 12v power supply (something like this- https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00FEOB4EI..._x.nwCbNQZJW20)

    That would feed 12v DC but using the Renards to control them. Would that work and would that allow dimming?

    You could with the wall warts but you would have a delay in timing. A 12v DC controller would serve you better.

    Would the delay be “even”? Meaning I can use the delay function in FPP to get everything to sync? Also are these dimmable? I couldn’t tell from the description.

    You would not get any dimming. Look into a DC version of the Renard. Those strips do dimming using PWM. Varying the 12v woould not result in anything you want.
