Hello everyone!
I just wanted to let you know I just tried using WLED  as the software for Moodlite and is being very interesting.
I deeply love Moodlite implementation, but doing MQTT right has become an issue for me.
Using WLED eased a lot of the technical and coding  need that were beyond my knowledge, I modified the wled 0.8.6 to output to 2 pins, gpio 2 and 3 this way I have certain flexibility doing my projects .
The advantages are:
  • No YAML File modification to integrate.
  • Direct control of patters and basic functions on home assistant.
  • Huge number of patters.
  • Electric overload monitored by software (it tries to keep power usage inside of a defined threshold).
  • It syncs patters between separate devices.


below some pictures from the app, home assistant and my LED setups.

UPDATE:
Using Ledfx I was able to add sound reaction, the caveat is that it needs a computer or other device to listen and send the patterns to the esp controller attached to the leds.
