    Actually is just a kind of converter to rgb led strip, what has 4 wires. I am not using the WS2812B.
    DMX is a kind of communication between the arduino and the other board, that converts to RGB. DMX.jpg
    This is the board.

    In most cases, a usb cable and the arduino ide. In some cases (where the arduino does not have a usb connector) you will need a usb to ttl adapter aswell.

    Hi,

    there are more than one way to opload the code to the arduino. The simplest one is to install the Arduino IDE. Then load the *.ino file of AtmoOrb.
    Now you need to install the libraries which are needed for AtmoOrb. As far as i know this should be these...

    - Adafruit_CC3000
    - Adafruit_NeoPixel

    To get these libraries click on "Sketch" -> "include library"-> "Manage libraries". Search for the libraries and install it.
    Now you should be able to compile the AtmoOrb sketch. To upload it to your arduino got to "Werkzeuge" -> "Platine" (i got the german version installed...dont know how this menu item is named in english version) select your arduino. Finally you need to select your programmer via "Werkzeuge" -> "Programmer".
    but i dont know which type of programmer you need to select.... But i think @Lightning303 can answer this question :)

    +CIFSR:confused:TAMAC,"18:fe:34:a2:43:a3"

    OK

    AtmoOrb:stripe:address:192.168.0.150,49692;
    busy s...

    0,CONNECT
    0,CLOSED

    when i set to UDP I get only

    IP: 192.168.0.150

    AT+CIFSR

    +CIFSR:confused:TAIP,"192.168.0.150"
    +CIFSR:confused:TAMAC,"18:fe:34:a2:43:a3"

    OK

    AtmoOrb:stripe:address:192.168.0.150,49692;

    Not sure what AtmoWin has to do with any of this.
    Make sure you use the right firmware on the esp8266, the version the code has been used and tested with is included in the sketch files comment.
