Possible to dim shield led?

Is it possible to programmatically dim the led on the thing shield within a sketch?

Why does the question seem silly?

Anyway, is there?


Do you want to dim it or turn it off? It’s simple to turn it off.

Since the LED is run off of digital pins, I don’t believe you could dim it…though you could make it blink.

I got the on off blinks down.

To be honest I want to use it with a proximity sensor so as I drive into the garage it goes from bright to dim then another color when I’m at the sweet spot. I then have a ST device tile on the shield that shows a car is present or not.

Happy Hacking!

When setting the LED color it’s a mixture of intensity of red, green, blue on a scale of 0-9. So 1,0,0 is low red, 9,0,0 is high red. You can mix and max RGB intensities to get different colors. How to get certain colors? No clue, I’m red/green colorblind. It’s wicked annoying.

Caution, that LED is just crazy bright at full intensity.
