ESP8266 LED Lighting: Revisit and history of QuinLED

It’s been about 1,5 to 2 years since I started the project to create my own wirelessly controlled PWM LED dimmer. Since that time I’ve kept refining the PCB and code and this post will be a sort of revisit and revision history of QuinLED.

In future posts and videos we will be doing a new tutorial on what components you need, how to solder it all together, program the ESP8266 and link it to Domoticz. I also plan to create posts about the LED Power wall I’m going to build to house everything centralized in my house.

Live test of another LED charging cable

After recently testing a moving LED charging cable I thought I’d do another Quick Charge test of different LED charging cable. No running lights this time but just illumination. Will it survive Quick Charge 9v and 12v? Continue reading Live test of another LED charging cable

Home Networking: First walk through on the build site

As some might know, we’ve been building a house for a while now. We’re now into it about 1 year and I thought it would be nice to show a video of how things are progressing and also showcase some of the “features” that are going into the house.

So, introducing the Home Networking series 1st post and video! The home networking series will be my journey starting from scratch, creating the plans, having the house built and installing everything to try and create the ultimate home setup. I’ll take you with me, share the good and the bad and hopefully some some fun going along! Continue reading Home Networking: First walk through on the build site

Panasonic G7 25FPS to 30FPS

As you probably where able to see in the previous video I decided to replace my 6 year old Sony Nex-5 with a Panasonic G7. I remember thinking 6 years ago that it was sad they where still bringing out PAL (25FPS) and NTSC (30FPS) models of the same camera without allowing you to change it. Guess what, this new Panasonic is locked too! Horrible!

I found a away to change that though! Continue reading Panasonic G7 25FPS to 30FPS

The Ikea tinker storage system

Ever since I started tinkering with hardware I’ve been accumulating more and more “stuff”. Most often these are little things like connectors, sensors, mosfets, etc.. And more often then not I don’t buy 1 or 2 but buy them per 10 or even 20 at the same time.

After a while I was having trouble keeping it all sorted and easily accessible so I started to look around for a cost effective way of storing everything and I think I might have found it. Read on to see what I’m using.

ESP8266 WiFi LED dimmer Part 10 of X: Finding the right lights

Now that the LED dimmer is working and I have workable boards (Still working on better PCB designs) and I have a plan laid out for the house, the last task was to find the right lights to use them with. This turned out to be harder then I thought!

Recently I finally found what I’ve been looking for, both a downlights and LED strip!
