Depending on the the time of day and how well lit the sign is, you may want to increase or decrease the brightness of your lights. At night time, full brightness can be a little blinding. In the middle of the day, the sun can wash out the light and you'll need them to be a little brighter.
There are 3 brightness settings that you can tailor to your liking. The addressable LEDs and 2 optionally attach LED outputs. To adjust the brightness, simply move the sliders left or right and the brightness will be reflected within the app and on the board.
