While looking around for interesting chargers, I came across this TOPK charger which has a built-in night light. Often, combined products fail at the multiple tasks they set out to do so I decided to order one and test it out. The results surprised me!
Welcome to my “Ultimate Overkill Desk” project! It’s basically what it says, I’m building a new desk for in my office and it’s going to be total overkill in all regards, including custom cable ducting and integrated LEDs! Continue reading Ultimate Overkill Desk Project
Recently I finished the outdoor garden lighting, follow along while I make them QuinLED compatible and install them! Continue reading ESP8266 LED Lighting: Using QuinLED with Domoticz
Today we’re going to take a look at using QuinLED with Domoticz. First I’ll take you along while we install Domoticz on a Fedora 25 Server and then we configure it work with QuinLED. Continue reading ESP8266 LED Lighting: Using QuinLED with Domoticz
It’s been a long time in the making but I’ve finally put the final touches on my newest revision of QuinLED! This makes it version 2.6 rev 1.00. Let’s check it out!
It’s been a while since the last article and video about the ESP8266 but finally the article and video on how how to program QuinLED and then control it from your PC is here! Continue reading ESP8266 LED Lighting: Programming and controlling QuinLED
The next step in the series of building your own ESP8266 is to set the voltage and flash the ESP-01 with the NodeMCU firmware! Continue reading ESP8266 LED Lighting: Setting voltage and flashing NodeMCU
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. Continue reading ESP8266 LED Lighting: Revisit and history of QuinLED
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
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
