IKEA DIODER led strip arduino hack

To my surprise it was really easy to hack IKEA DIODER and connect it to an arduino. The only thing that needed to be done is removing the old microcontroller and solder there wires to control the RGB colours and one for +5 v and GROUND.


Connect the power and ground to the arduino +5v and GND. The wires for controlling the control the colours  to pin 3, 5 and 6 and use the code from Adafruit http://learn.adafruit.com/rgb-led-strips/example-code to test.
