connected lighting
« on: October 23, 2012, 05:13:18 pm »
I found this on the net: http://www.greenwavereality.com/solutions/led-lighting/
sounds really neat controlling the light via wifi...too bad I can't get it here in germany.

I wonder how much energy the wifi module eats

Really cool. I'll have to watch for prices to get more into my range....but can think of many fun ways to use.

We have found a more cost effective LED / LED color solution, so hopefully I get my hands on a dev kit soon and we can integrate it as well. Im having to learn the innards of dce to create the proper setup (right now, hue requires web admin  :-\ ) but working to improve on screen setup.

What is this new potential solution?
I was leaning towards Hue as they will shortly have GU10 bulbs.

thanks,

This is a good review of the current state of play in connected lighting; http://www.ellipticalcurve.com/2014/10/the-smart-lighting-battle-smartlighting/

Belkin are the latest entrant in this market. They look to have some nice solutions too.

All the best
