tiRGBLED from rgbled.org
« on: April 08, 2009, 01:23:25 pm »
G'day..

I've been reading through the wiki and these forums, and I would like a little further information about the GSD.

The board I'd like to interface over serial can set leds to any of 16 mil colours and animate.

It takes commands over rs232

Is there a way to send advanced commands with dcerouter such as colour parameters rather than just off on and dim etc ?

The full command set is available on the website.

Thanks in advance for your advice :)

You can send any command. Question is, what would you like the user to select on the orbiter.

Each RS-232 command can be as complex or as simple as you like.

I'd ideally like to have different modes that could be 'fade between red and blue over 10 seconds and then fade back and loop' or 'fade to red and 3 seconds later go back to whatever colour was being displayed before..

This could be a visual doorbell signal when I'm out in the garden entertaining

You would essentially be adding any necessary commands to the system as DCE commands, and implementing those commands in GSD.

You should sit down and think carefully of the commands you wish to add, to make it feasible to use within your scenarios...But also try to make it easy for others to use those commands as well.
