The purpose of my project is to use a Raspberry Pi to control LED lights in my room using Pigpio software/packages. These lights were common strip LED lights on my wall. I used my Raspberry pi kit, jumper cables (m-m and f-m), and many other items to complete my project. Using different command inputs on my raspberry pi resulted in different RGB light sequences on my LED lights.

Components of my project include my raspberry pi kit, a breadboard, my RGB light strip, jumper wires (male to male and female to male), N-channel MOSFETs, power supplies (one for pi, one for light strip), a power jack, and the software PIGPIO installed on the raspberry pi.Pigpio is downloaded using wget && unzip && cd PIGPIO && sudo make install, and the software I used was downloaded using sudo apt-get install build-essential unzip wget I also used the tutorial: by David Ordnung.

Project Actions
My project controls my LED lights using RGB pins and jumper wires that connect my pi to the breadboard to my LED lights. Using commands on the PIGPIO software, I can control which RGB lights light up. The command connects to the pi, which control the lights through the breadboard. The pi can control individual red, green, and blue values. For example, the code “pigs p 17 255” sets the brightness of red to 100%.

In conclusion, using various components and items, I was able to connect my raspberry pi, my breadboard, and my lightstrip to control different RGB values on my LED lightstrip. I used PIGPIO software to control this. I would recommend this project to others because it is easy to follow, the individual parts can just be pricey.
