    1.) which mode should be run, when there is no hyperion connected.
    2) automatically switch to HYPERION mode if hyperion is connected and fall back to standard mode if disconnected
    3) Fallbacktime for 2

    Thats quite easy. You LED quantity in hyperion (seems to be 402/3=134 leds) is different to the led quantity on the esp.

    It's a SN74AHCT125N "Buffers & Line Drivers Tri-State Quad Bus "

    I'm driving 240+ APA102a led's with that one, The wemos data lines are 3.3v. I thought it would be good to add a level shifter to the data and clock lines to bump up the voltages to 5v. to avoid problems.

    I have made others that omit the level shifter that work well. However they ere less then 40 led in the string and ws2812 leds. I find level shifters work well when using lots of led's and driving the from 3.3v data lines.

    Hi.
    Is it possible to turn off the blinking blue led on the wemos d1 mini? I can't find the right line in the Sketch and i didn't find something about it here.
    Thx.

    Hey there just found this.

    I have the sketch up and running and I have the right pin as the effect set in the sketch is working. I am having no luck with it in Hyperion though. I have the hardware/ip all set but can't change colors or use the app.

    Hyperion Config -

    Any help? Thanks
