EspLight - Wifi RGB LED controller

Postby raymonvdm » Mon Jan 18, 2016 3:09 pm

I found out the existence of this device last week :D

I would like to test one, but has anyone on the forum already discovered this device? It is cheaper than a Fibaro RGBW and it also support Pixel or NeoPixel leds :D

If you want a esp 8266 based led driver, that's cheap :

This one can drive a rgb w w , so you can drive 5 channels of 12v led stripes

Oh and NeoPixels can be driven straight from a esp.. simplest and cheapest way is a esp dev board ( 5v ) and connect + , gnd, and data pin to a gpio
like in this project.

If you have a good search you will even find some compatible mifi or even hue brigde firmwares.

I ordered the h801 for less than 10 euro. Flashing a new sketch was easy and it works fine with a rgbw strip.

Hey Rene,

Makes me wonder what sketch you did upload ?
I still need to find some time to play with these..

@raymonvdm

Not sure what controller you have, but you could try to look for a milight or huebridge compatible firmware so the driver wont be a issue.

In the first attempt to get the esplight running i stumbled uppon issue connecting it to my wifi network (Mikrotik) I have tested it with another AP (speedtouch) and the module is connecting fine so the issue seems to be related to the mix of the two


Tonight i made another attempt to get the WS2812 led stip going and i found out that the DATAout on the module was connected to the DATAout on the led strip. So i have soldered the wires to the other end of the led strip and now it is running fine :D
