Is it possible to connect to one of these, which run at 12v, to turn on the LED strip using an ESP8266? It doesn't matter if it's an Arduino or the ESP8266, both should be able to do this. The board looks like this:
If I turn on the red light, the "R" gets grounded and therefore applies 12v to the rail. The 3 MOSFETs on the images are P0903BDG MOSFETs.
Alternatively, I can hook into the IR signal and send an IR signal using the ESP8266. That would be really awesome, as it only requires 3 wires. How that is possible, I'm not really sure, though.
I know it's possible to make your own circuit using IRLZ44N MOSFETs, which I have done before, but I want to try and use as much as this circuit as possible.
