Inground RGB LED spotlights

Postby Digit » Sat Aug 20, 2011 10:21 pm

Hi all you LED & DMX fans,
I've been doing some experimenting with RGB LED spotlights, DMX and Arduino lately. Right now I'm able to control a bunch of RGB LED spotlights over Ethernet with relatively little effort; the Arduino part of it has been stable since I started using it so that's a big relief, but getting the LEDs to produce the right colors is something I have to work on by doing some more research before I can install the LEDs where they belong...

Nice setup!

I don't have much time and patience to work on Arduino things, so I choose an Xdimmer-3HP which I will be controlling through the new LanBox-LCP which hopefully be available next week. So for now I use my IRtrans to control the Xdimmer-3.

If I would have a garden I would probably buy the CLS CAS3 RGB flood spots which Romar has on sale (see viewtopic.php?f=15&t=6605). So my setup is for inside.

Update:
I made some progress today; the weather was too good to stay inside, so I did some tests in the garden this evening.
I had a really nasty issue with controlling the LEDs though, but nothing that can't be solved.
However, the looks are really good if I my say so... 8)
