What LED strips do Glo support?

Glo is capable of controlling WS2812B, SK6812, SMD 5050 and other 3-pin/4-pin LED strips (compatibility varies by model). Different models of Glo can control different types of LEDs, so make sure to check the product page for compatibility information!

What is included with Glo?

Spark and Pixel models will ship with their respective power supplies. There will be an option to include an LED strip with your order.

What is the difference between 3 and 4 pin LEDs?

3-Pin LEDs are addressable, meaning that each LED can have a different color. These LEDs generally run on 5V, meaning that they are not compatible with 12V controllers. 4-Pin LEDs are connected in parallel, meaning that one pin is dedicated for 12V, while the remaining 3 are used to turn on R, G, and B sectors on the strip. This means that all the LEDs will share the same color.

How do I reprogram my Glo?

Glo can be connected to a computer using its USB port, and reprogrammed via the Arduino IDE. A more detailed guide will be posted shotly.
