Lights control from the nrf remote/The WAND and configuration tab in VESC TOOL

Hi, 

It would be nice if we have lights configuration tab in VESC TOOL so we can set things like:

  1. Protocols as WS2811/2812B
  2. Number of addresses(RGB(W) LEDs) in front and back - for white/red lights and turn lights
  3. Auxiliary addresses like underglow and high beam(external high power led with narrow beam), which can also be controlled from WS2811 IC over PWM.

Also we will propably need to have more buttons on the nrf remote.  

What about current state? There si ws2811 firmware option in VESC TOOL, does it work in v60 HW?

Bump.
No interest in this?
Maybe add some simple function in the WAND that makes full duty cycle and half duty cycle PPM output for high beam, low beam, respectively. Or just change some variable in fw, which I can read over UART.

I made a new topic few days ago on same thing  [https://vesc-project.com/node/1584] i didn't get any reply so far...

And I think i will end up implementing this using a teensy reading vesc info from uart instead of changing VESC firmware....

Yeah, braking light should be easy. But I also want a function to turn on and turn off lights from the remote. Possibly also change power lowbeam/highbeam. So I don't have to switch it with physical button on board. And this needs implementation in the WAND, for which Ben didn't release sources yet.

I am working on a very strong LED light and I don't want to blind others on the road.

//EDIT ok, found the Wand fw sources
