Colornode holiday lighting microcontroller board

Posted on Saturday, November 19th, 2011 in Arduino, Holiday, LEDs by the machinegeek


ColorNode is a wireless Arduino-compatible microcontroller board designed to replace the stock controller board on GE Color Effects light strings. It’s a project designed by digitalmisery and was inspired by deep darc’s Hacking Christmas Lights project last year.

The schematic and photos are available, and they promise to post the code as soon as the bugs are worked out. Visit digitalmisery’s website for a thorough explanation of this timely holiday season project!
