RGB LED Driver/Controller Help? Answered
I officially feel inept. As I am more of a wordsmith than electrician, this should come as no surprise to me. Anyway, I have 6 RGB LEDs that I am embedding into a DIY background for my aquarium. I bought RGB, LED strip lights which came with a controller/driver which I have installed in my canopy. I thought it would be cool to place 5mm RGB lights encased in siliconed capsules in the caves and recesses of my background. I have already wired and tested the LEDs underwater and all works as planned...individually.
To my question: I have enough know how to complete the simple circuit with a cell battery, but I want to control the LED's, inexpensively, with some type of knob control (potentiometer??? I have many from an old classroom) so that I can "color-mix." My research seemed to indicate arduino as my only option. I'm not really interested in that. So? Any thoughts? A schematic even a dummy like me can follow with six RGB LEDs??
Thanks for the help. I will be posting the background build once I am through.
