Demonstrates changing intensity of an RGB LED. Requires RGB LED on pins that support PWM (usually denoted by ~).

RGB LED. (Arduino UNO)

RGB LED connected to pins 6, 5, and 3 for red, green, and blue respectively.

Run this example from the command line with:

node eg/led-rgb-intensity.js
var temporal = require("temporal");
var five = require("johnny-five");
var board = new five.Board();

board.on("ready", function() {

  // Initialize the RGB LED
  var led = new five.Led.RGB([6, 5, 3]);

  // Set to full intensity red
  console.log("100% red");

    // After 3 seconds, dim to 30% intensity
    wait: 3000,
    task: function() {
      console.log("30% red");
  }, {
    // 3 secs then turn blue, still 30% intensity
    wait: 3000,
    task: function() {
      console.log("30% blue");
  }, {
    // Another 3 seconds, go full intensity blue
    wait: 3000,
    task: function() {
      console.log("100% blue");
  }, ]);
