Main circuit assemly

You can change pins to your wish. Actually I have circuit design for Particle photon also.

Frame wire connection

the circuit for the code i wrote.

Freeformable Circuit Code by Devanagaraj

Arduino
Just change the button hex number to your remote numbers.
Open serial moniter in arduino ide to get your hex number of respective remote.
#include <IRremote.h>
// follow me on insta www.instagram.com/itz_me_stark

int RECV_PIN = 0; //Rx pin
int del= 100;
int led[] = {A4, 4, 5, A5, 6, 7, A0, 8 ,9 , A1 , 10 ,11 ,A2 , 12 ,13 ,A3 ,2 ,3 };

#define val1 1031 // button 7
#define val2 1026 // button 2
#define val3 1027 // button 3
#define val4 1028 // button 4
#define val5 1029 // button 5
#define val6 1223 //power button for full loop effects
#define val7 1030 // button 6
