There are multiple types of these smart LED strips, and only the WS2812b (NeoPixel) will work with the code provided-- are they APA102/APA104s by chance? Those can use the library called DotStar that is very similar on the user end. If they are some other type then you'll have to dig around for a library or get some different strip to use the code provided.
