I went for a trip to Bunnings today. In the recent years they have brought out more offerings of 'smart' lights.
From standard LED strings with a WiFi plug multi-function controller to these seemingly pixels.
The pixel pop-up tree is also back this year > https://auschristmaslighting.com/threads/pixels-in-parallel-yet-still-addressable.13976/


I haven't seen anyone mention these so far.
A string of 100 copper wire seed lights.

They look to be 3 wires, with a 4th wire presumably being a sort of 'power injection' of negative to the end of the string. There is a BigCliveDotCom video about that.

The blobs of epoxy look to be more consistent than the seed pixels from BTF lighting > As seen here: https://auschristmaslighting.com/threads/the-tiny-2811-seed-pixels-and-waterproofing.14234/

I'll be keen to buy a set once boxing day sales hit.


Given that the spiral tree lights turned out to be 400kHz rather than standard WS2811 800kHz, I'm guessing these would be the same.
Just a note for anyone who wants to try them.
Most pixel controllers can have the data frequency changed but it affects all pixels on that port.

Cheap arlec crap, so what do you expect. 6 years worth of use..... xD
Any arlec junk I've tried has died after the *FIRST* year.
