For background see my original post. I've decided to not to use batteries and have it wired up with wall power.
I wish to use the Arduino Pro Mini 5V as the controller for my diorama project. I have five completed buildings which will all have LEDs (with only two wired up so far). The two currently wired buildings have multiple "zones/rooms" that can have its LEDs activated separately.
Building 1 is a saloon with rooms above. It has a total of 7 zones/rooms.
Building 2 is a store with a doctor's office above and rooms in the back of each. It has 4 rooms.
With this setup, I am able to use the software to simulate people coming and going within the rooms. It's pretty neat.
However, I'm currently at 11 outputs out of the Mini. I'm running out of pins. How can I have more outputs?
