[Solved] Unable to address LED 1 - 7 of BlinkStick Square


Hey folks,

I just received my BlinkStick Square and am now experimenting with it. I already managed to control LED 0 by sending the command 0x01 0x00 0xFF 0x00 (for green).

Now I would like to control the LEDs 1 to 7 as well. By studying the various implementations I found some commands that could would, but they don’t. The BlinkStick Client won’t control the remaining LEDs as well. Am I missing something?

My questions are:

  1. Is there a documentation regarding the allowed commands?
  2. Which command can I use to control the other LEDs?



Okay, the trick was to put the BlinkStick Square in WS2812 mode – although it’s not a BlinkStick Pro. This had to be done by sending the command 0x04 0x02. Then I could use the command 0x06 0x00 g0 r0 b0 .... g7 r7 b7 to set the individual colors (where g0 to b7 are the individual LED component’s brightnesses from 0x00 to 0xFF).
