I am running a Blinkt hat on a Raspberry Pi Zero W. I have the pi set up to be a PiAware (Flight Aware ADS-B Receiver), and it starts a receiver script on pi startup (via crontab). However, when I start up the pi, the Blinkt goes through a sequence of color flashes that I have not set. This seems like some start-up sequence, but I can’t figure out where/how to tell for sure.
I also see another pixel flashing blue sometimes while my script is running. I don’t touch any pixels other than the first 2 and don’t set colors other than red and yellow. If I leave my pi on for a few minutes and then run my script, I don’t see that blue flash.
My questions are:
- Is this a standard Blinkt power on sequence that I’m observing? If yes:
- Can I turn the sequence off?
- How long does the sequence run?
