I just built my first Octoprint box using a Pi 4 Model B (2GB/64-bit), an older 7" RPi touchscreen and RPi 5MP camera. I was even able to use an older V3 enclosure with my V4 Pi, by opening up some of the port openings. I used the octopi-buster-lite-0.17.0 build, and I wired into my home network, so didn't bother configuring the WiFi. I am also running Octoscreen, which I was able to configure using the great tutorial posted on the Chris's basement Youtube channel . I need some help configuring one feature I really need.
To monitor my prints remotely, I will need to be able to turn on the Neopixels for light. In the menus of my SKR Mini, there is an LED section that lets me turn them on/off, and change color just fine. Is there a way to configure Octoprint so that I can access the Neopixel controls of my board?
My printer is a modded Ender3. At this point I have added a Microswiss all metal hot end converted to direct drive, Ender Extender 400mm frame conversion, mechanical dual Z leadscrews, and a BTT SKR E3 Mini V2 mainboard. Using Octoprint, I can connect just fine to the SKR E3, I can control all axes, the camera works, and I printed from a file on my computer. All functions seem to work well. The one thing I can't do is access the Neopixel controls.
TIA for any and all help.
