I wanted to have some soft lighting on the stairs and didn’t really want anything too fancy. Over the holidays I was able to pick up some 10ft Decorative LED String lights. 62 LEDs in various colors. Connecting two together and then shortening it a bit leaves me with a nice string of lights.
NODEMCU in a box controlling a transistor to 5V for the LED. USB power at 2A+. All in a custom printed container.
- On at Sunset
- Off at Sunrise
- PWM control for brightness TBD
- Maybe Dim at midnight until sunrise
