    Hello,
    I have a project that required 14 meters of LED strips (each branch is 1 meters length) to be controlled by one Lumazoid;
    Is it possible to give external power to all those strips and drive it by same DATA output? (of course I will ground the minus signal of each strip to the board)?
    If so, does it work in parallel with same effect? what limitation I have for DATA output to drive those 14 meters.
    Is there any restriction for the distance between “Lumazoid output” and the “Neopixel strips”?
    Is there any reliable repeater for that signal?
    Thank you,
    Wassim

    You should be able to connect multiple strips to be driven by the same data pin, but I have not tried more than 2. I do not know if you will have difficulties with 14, so I think you need to try it and see how many can work.
    Distance between the board and LEDs should be minimized, but I typically have a 1 meter wire distance to my LEDs without problems. That is only one strip, though.
