Trigger (Timer) Sensor Tutorial

Use the trigger sensor sticker to turn your LEDs on or off for approximately three seconds when triggered. The trigger sensor sticker has four pads: + and – for power, a signal pad, and a sensing pad. To trigger this sticker simultaneously touch the sensor trace and the – trace. This will cause the voltage on the signal pad to briefly […]

Sound Sensor Tutorial

Use the sound sensor sticker to control the brightness of your LEDs with sound. You can tap, yell, or blow into the sound sensor sticker to make the LEDs glow brighter. The light sensor sticker has three pads: + and – for power and a signal pad. The sticker also contains a small microphone that allows it […]

Light Sensor Tutorial

Use the light sensor sticker to control the brightness of your LEDs with the light sensor. The light sensor sticker has three pads: + and – for power and a signal pad that generates the pattern. The more light the sticker is exposed to, the higher the voltage on the signal, which causes the lights to become brighter […]

Effects Sticker Tutorial

Use the effect stickers to make your LEDs shine different patterns, depending on which sticker you choose: blink on and off, fade in and out, pulse in a heartbeat and twinkle like a star. The effect sticker has three pads: + and – for power and a signal pad that generates the pattern. The signal […]
