Faster and featuring a new API!

If you would like a more recent binary that offers a more stable MQTT connection and working HA auto discovery (Github master version 1905222), check here. Keep in mind that those are not thoroughly tested!

  • Added new JSON API
  • Added HomeAssistant auto discover (broken, please use master. Expect new binaries soon)
  • Switched to EspAsyncWebServer for enhanced performance
  • Switched to AsyncMqttClient
  • Switched hue sync to async client
  • Added macro notification
  • Added button double click macro
  • Added relative change functionality to HTTP API
  • Added support for SPIFFS
  • Added external output pin (default GPIO12, use e.g. for relay)
  • Removed realtime web UI lock

If you experience some pages of the web UI loading slowly or not at all, try downgrading to ESP8266 Arduino core v2.4.2.

Power helper, new effects, and IR support!

  • Added Auto Brightness Limiter
  • LED color order can now be set in web settings
  • Added Meteor effect (thank you, @viknet365!)
  • Added Smooth Meteor and Railway effects
  • Added 24-key infrared remote support (KY-022 receiver required)
  • Improved web page loading speed
  • Added PlatformIO config (thank you, @wiesendaniel and @debsahu!)
  • Improved settings page scaling on mobile devices
  • Fixed Nightlight UDP sync issue

Some important notes:

  • The new auto brightness limiter lets you choose the maximum current your LEDs may draw, this is either <1A if the LEDs are directly connected to the ESP, or the amp rating of your 5V power supply if connected directly to the LEDs. If you update to 0.8.2, you need to manually enable ABL in the LED settings for compatibility reasons.
    Any fresh installs of 0.8.2+ will have it enabled by default with the recommended value of 850mA (with no external power supply)
    Keep in mind this feature is not guaranteed to work and does not account for factors like wire resistance or specific LED type. The calculated estimate may differ from the actual current draw! I recommend keeping a safety margin.

  • If you build 0.8.2 from source, you now need to either install the IRremoteESP8266 library or uncomment #define WLED_DISABLE_INFRARED in the top of wled00.ino.

  • WLED now has a domain! will redirect you to the GitHub page!

  • Added ESP-01 binaries! You should still use the normal ESP8266 binary for Wemos D1 mini or NodeMCU (ESP12E module)

Extended palette support and a few quality-of-life additions!

  • Almost all effects can now use FastLED palettes
  • Added Colortwinkles and Lake effects
  • Added Tiamat and April Night palettes
  • Fixed Analog Clock and Tricolor chase bugs
  • Added possibility to use any pin on ESP8266 (gpio2 still recommended)
  • Increased max. UDP leds from 341 to 490 and added DNRGB protocol
  • Added support for E1.31 with more than 170 LEDs
  • Restored 512K ESP8266-01 support

Mesmerizing new effects and MQTT support!

  • Added over 20 new light effects
  • 9 effects have support for FastLED color palettes
  • Added 44 color palettes
  • Added Palette blending options and API calls
  • Added MQTT support
  • Added Time Activated Macros (Schedules)
  • Added CL= and C2= API calls to set color with HEX
  • Improved AP mode stability
  • Added Mobile UI power indicator
  • AP mode DNS server now only works with domain ""
  • Improved Readme file

Please keep in mind that 0.8.0 will not work on ESP-01 with 512K flash. On ESPs with 1M flash, OTA update will likely no longer work. Efforts will be made to restore compatibility for 0.8.1!

Blynk, Hue sync and MQTT all need to connect to external hosts to work, which could cause significant slowdowns. If you experience instabilities, try disabling these interfaces.

With this update, the LED driver library can be dynamically reallocated. This means you can now change the LED count as well as the type (RGB/RGBW) while the software is running. Because of this, adding support of more LEDs was possible (clock function not yet supported on LEDs >255)!

  • Increased maximum LED count! New maximum is 1200 on ESP8266 and 600 on ESP32
  • Separate RGBW binary is no longer required
  • API call &ND now works without &NL
