I love using LEDs to add accent color to...well nearly anything you can add LEDs to. I wanted to create a modular, cheap, and easy-to-install way to make these lights connected. Using the NodeMCU running MongooseOS, AWS IoT, and a custom Android Application I can easily manage my Adafruit Neopixels, SMD5050 Light Strips, and even other devices such as a servo 'smart' light switch, and my connected blinds using a stepper motor.
I have multiple 'sections' of code that are generic enough to control what I need. There are libraries for different devices used to connect to the cloud (NodeMCU running MongooseOS, Omega Onion 2+, and Raspberry Pi). Simply drop in a snippet of code for the type of device you have: Light, Switch, Motor (more to come)

I have submitted this project as an App on the Mongoose Forum.
Check it out here!
The link includes sources for the MongooseOS App as well as the Android App with instructions on provisioning/setup
