The Simple Shield is the fastest and easiest way to connect an Arduino UNO to Total Control Lighting. Itâ€™s just a shield with a female TCL Connector, with the Clock and Data already connected to pins 11 and 13. No Soldering, No Hassle!
Just mount the shield and plug it into your strand.
The Simple shield allows you to control Total Control Lighting with an Arduino, which makes it the most powerful and dynamic TCL controller. Since TCL uses only Pins 11 and 13, leaving 12 digital pins and all 6 analog pins available, you can make your lights respond to sound, heat, touch, or anything else you can think of!
Please note that the Simple Shield is a top shield. In order to preserve small form factor, it does not come with female pins, and therefore must be at the top of the shield stack.
