As i said this DIY project is from very basic components which you can easly find from all electronic store etc.
---How is it work ?----
Basicaly 2 connectors are directly connected to battery and leds but they are not connected to each other so we will use UTP cable as a bridge of RJ45 connectors.So if any of Leds are not working that means our UTP cable is not working properly on that Leds so we can troubleshoot on our cable.
I will give the list in 2 parts first is equipments and 2nd is components.
