I am wondering if anyone has ever connected the output of their LED strip back to the Arduino to read and make sure the strip is functioning correctly, kinda like checksum functionality.
I am using the FastLed library and it doesn't appear that this has been done.
The reason why I want to do this is because when an LED breaks on the strip, it causes all of the following LEDs to flicker wildly. I need to be able to shut the LED strip off immediately if it starts flickering because my device is being used as a visual therapy aid in a school.
I am using an Arduino Due with WS2812B LED strip.
