I'm having an issue with my LPD8806 led strip. My RPI and led strip are both located inside a lamp, both being powered by a multi output source (not the best one). Before this I was powering the led strip from the RPI and I had the same behaviour, no matter what the source was.
The problem is that whenever a light switch in the house is triggered, one or multiple leds from my led strip are turned on (mostly white. Sometimes a led is pink, or blue). Now, I know for certain that the grid in this house is faulty, but it is a rental, so there is not much I can do. The RPI is connected to some relays, sometimes this happens when a relay is triggered and a light bulb is opened.
How can I prevent this from happening? Could a capacitor help? It kind of stinks to be away and when arriving back home to see that the whole ledStrip is turned white. Or to need to switch it off whenever this happens.
Thanks in advance, have a nice day!
