 This program  Controls Two led strip's over the APP with json data
  this program also handles Local Wifi ,OTP and Dynamic Wifi Connectivity with App.

  Features:
  1.)Control blink,Fade pattern for two led strips from the App
  2.)Ap mode ,Wifi Mode and Otp mode integrated
  3.)Communication is over TCP protocol
  4.)The device MAC Address is compare with saved mac address and vendor name for connectiviaty.
  5.)Dynamic way to change wifi and AP mode credential from APP

  //TODO:
  1)Need to  add SSDP  protocol for brodcasting unique device information ,this layer will help us to identify devices over network
  as host name is not working.THe verification of esp devices is done with unique networking layer in App itself.
  2)Adding security layer.
