Bluetooth controlled RGB LED strip

Posted on Tuesday, October 9th, 2012 in DIY, LEDs by DP

Hmms shared his Bluetooth controlled RGB LED strip project. Atmega8 microcontroller with the Arduino bootloader controls the LEDs, while the Bluetooth communication is handled via a cheap serial to Bluetooth module.

I wanted the strip to be Controllable via a PC or a Mobile Phone.So I decided to make my own RGB LED strip Controller and to enable wireless control  i used Bluetooth technology.The device can be controlled using a PC or a mobile phone with Bluetooth having a suitable graphical  user interface.

Via the forum.

    * Android 2.3.3 and above required for Bluetooth
    Android 2.1 to 2.3.2 will support Bluetooth but you’ll need to enter the Bluetooth pairing pin on every connection
    Android 1.5 and above can use a USB cable connection as opposed to Bluetooth. For USB connections, the “USB debugging” setting (also known as ADB) must be turned on in your Android phone, you’ll find this setting under “Settings”, “Applications”, and “Development”.

    Would it be possible to use this LED strip that is controlled by bluetooth with other bluetooth devices besides a phone or computer?

  • KH: Really? They are digital inputs driven by an MCU. The MCU GPIO probably has diode clamps and ESD protection. Have you experienced such failures? Please...
  • KH: Neither. Google "Marco Schweighauser’s 8-bit virtual Javascript CPU" and see the first result. Sounds more like a very limited feature toy CPU.
