Light Installation Equipment

Hi everyone,

I’m currently working on a Touchdesigner Project and wanted to enhance it with some simple lights. So far the idea is to have 2 LED stripes and control their intensity, color and light patterns. So far I watched some tutorials on it and wanted to try it out.
But I’m not sure which hardware to buy. Do I need anything apart from the LEDs and some DMX Output? So far I found this output on ENTTEC under products > controls > USB > Open DMX USB and wonder if it’s a good option (some can’t include links sadly)
The lights on the other hand I don’t really know what to look for. Any recommendations are appreciated. Especially if not to expensive and if they look like neon tubes :stuck_out_tongue:
As you can read I’m still very lost in the matter. So any help would be great.
