it was only a general thought. a signal termination is a in the easiest case a resistor.
specially on long cable a non-terminated line can have reflection so the signal interferes itself or is picking up electrical noise.
, signal reflection
, impedance matching
but i am not sure, if that is applicable to a Neopixle ring.
there should be something in the data specs/documents, if a termination is needed or if it is already integrated.
to me, it sounds like the data signal is distorted by something, when you say, that at your office the device and everything works well, but not at your home (with same device, same power supply, same wireing, same setup, same everything).
so i guess there are some interferences picked up from somewhere.
