[Project] LEDnode from Jeelabs

Postby airox » Mon Jan 14, 2013 7:59 pm

Hi guys,

Lately I've been exploring the world of LED-strips. Those nice things which can lower your energy bill. I explored the options to get them wireless controlled. Seen a lot and a lot I didn't like. Overkill solutions or to complicated (WIFI for LED controllers?). I also wanted to keep the price low for each LED-strip. I expect to implement three of them in my house (and one ambilight effect you can view numerous videos on youtube). I settled for the nice new LED node v2 from Jeelabs. Not afraid of doing some soldering and software development.

Bill of materials used for my first LED-strip (which is put on our sleepingroom):
- RGB strip (only 2 meter used) - 7,2 euros
http://samenkopen.net/action_product/909457/822877
- 12v adapter - 6 euros
http://samenkopen.net/action_product/909457/681680
- LED-node - 28 euros
- http://jeelabs.com/products/led-node-v2
- Some corner profile (or whatever it's called) from our local Gamma
Something like this: http://www.bouwmarktconcurrent.nl/lamin ... er-4423704
------ TOTAL => +/- 50 euros

But there wasn't any nice good software on the internet capable of things I wanted the strip to do. Scenario's I had were the following:

- Wireless send commands to control the LED-strip.
- Capable of doing effects continously or just once.
- Signal an alarm by glowing red.
- Signal an incoming telephone conversation by flashing yellow a few times, one second of silence and than flashing again.
- Signal a notification by fading to orange and back to the current color again (whenever I'm sitting with my headphones on I know something is happining).
- Fading effects.
- Plain simpel show color effects.
- Certain beautifull presets available (blacklight, purple, and whites)
- Random show some colors (disco effect).
- Send a "turn up" or "turn down" command for an RGB channel or the whole strip (easy adjusting).
- Queue a series of effects described above in the "continous" queue to be played by the LED node.
- Queue some effects described above in the "do once" queue. Whenever something is added to this queue the strip will do this and return to playing the continous queue.
- Fire and water effects (TODO)
- HUE color codes effects (TODO)

I basically want to mimic events in the house on the LED-strip. In the next code samples I have the LED-strip libraries and a sample sketch (which will take it commands from a Jeelink or from a serial port during development).

Some documentation about the codes you can test on the serial console and can be sent through the air:

Example: 1A11000255000000
First char [1] = Replace all (once and continous) queues and with the command just send (zero to add instead of replace)
Second char [A] = Effect type (A=Set to RGB immediately)
Next: [1] = Add this command to the once queue (0 = continous)
Next: [1000] = The number of seconds the effect should take (in this case no effect)
Next: [255] = Red
Next: [000] = Green
Next: [000] = Blue

For more documentation on the effects check the source code. Not all effects have the same command setup.

Oh and for those wondering how I control this LED-strip in a Wife-Acceptance-Factor fashion. I ordered the following remote control on dx.com:

http://dx.com/p/24-key-wireless-infrare ... 2025-47019

The already in place Raspberry PI with IguanaIR infrared USB module behind the television at the sleeping room picks up the signal and sends it towards my home automation server. This then converts this to the command and sends it through the Jeelink towards the LED-node. Other effects are obviously send whenever an event arrises.

It runs Raspbmc (XBMC) and has an IR usb stick from iguanaworks and a WIFI N adapter attached. The IR usb stick receives IR commands but also to sends IR commands to turn on the TV and on correct input (HDMI) for "Movie mode", "Ambient mode", "Relax mode", etc. I just connected the LIRCD instances from my home automation server and the one running on the Raspberry PI using the --connect and --listen parameters.

The movie, ambient, relax, party, sleeping and normal mode also influence the LED-node light settings :-)

Nice work!
One question though: when will we be invited to have a look at the 'party' mode?
Really interested in that one! :) 8)
