Neopixel monitor brightness

Since neopixels use PWM for brightness instead of current, there’s no good way to adjust the brightness if using them as a notecard monitor. It would be nice if brightness were an option, such as {"req":"card.aux","mode":"neo-monitor","brightness":200} (in this example I’m imagining it’s a value from 0-255).

Hi @bencochran and welcome to the Blues community!

Setting the brightness of neopixels is actually an option in a card.aux request - it’s the sensitivity argument (we try to re-use argument names across APIs to keep the size of the firmware binary as small as possible, so sometimes they aren’t super obvious!).


Oh, so it is. Not sure how I missed that. Thanks for the quick reply!
