Ws2815 and ws2812 in same systems issues Answered

New to using these lights. I needed some side fire and circular leds which I have only found in ws2812 and also need to use the ws2815 to lower current draw on my motorcycle for parades. I have a 12v to 5 v converter and a wifi controller with presents. the ws 2815 work great, but when I connect the ws2812s to the data signal, everything goes crazy. They use a common ground, and a 12 volt and 5 volt source depending on lights, but a common data signal. Was wondering if the second date signal on the 2815 is the problem as I do not have it connected to anything or if there is a conflict between the two types of lights. Any ideas or help is appreciated.
