How to Make Analog Clock & Digital Clock With Led Strip Using Arduino

Introduction: How to Make Analog Clock & Digital Clock With Led Strip Using Arduino

Today we will make a Analog Clock & Digital clock with Led Strip and MAX7219 Dot module with Arduino.

It will correct the time with the local time zone. The Analog clock can use a longer LED strip, so it can be hung on the wall to become a artwork, but the unit of LEDs needs to be a multiple of 60.

Step 1: Circuit Diagram

Step 2:

1. Install the Library file: Open "Tools"-"Library Manager" in the Arduino development software, search for “RCTLib” ,”FastLED” , ” MD_MAX72xx”, ” MD_Parola” and ”Encoder” , then install them.

Step 3:

2. Install the Library file: Open "Sketch"-"Include Library"-"Add .ZIP Library" in the Arduino development software, Import Bounce.zip.

    Looks promising and I like clocks so had a quick look and got confused. The code looks for button presses and rotary positions yet the circuit diagram does not have these components. Plus I cannot see how to set the initial time. As I have already built a clock with the led matrix used I thought it would be easy to change the code and add the led strip to make it more interesting.
