Default YES you CAN use "Generic" 5VDC LEDs

I have a 144-LED 5V WS2812B addressable 5050 RGB LED Strip from Amazon connected to my Commander Pro (CLCP) and they work fine. The only issues are that CLCP cannot address all 144 LEDs and you have to be aware of the current load you are putting on the CLCP. When it was first attempted, the CLCP was limited to addressing 72 LEDs. I think the latest firmware release increased that limit. You can buy LED strips that are lower density that 144.

In the linked thread that Bomberman posted above are specific items from Amazon and detailed wiring diagrams.
