Harmish won't make a thing. He will only resell the stuff (as if).

As an insider I can tell you that the (real) producer of the bulbs is in the proces of making a STRONG downlight that will be available any time soon. Then Harmish (and I on a different webspot) will probably sell the goods. Only I don't pretend to have invented them.
Cheers.

That I'm not talking bullocks is proven by the attached screenshot ;)

correct, I am on the board and engineering team that designed those downlights pictured... 15W 24W 36W model downlights are already in production, and we are designing the next generation products at the moment also.

Q: for hamish.

Is there any documented way to whack some sort of RF transciever onto a Rasp Pi or some other ethernet enabled device to get something with individual control of multiple banks of lights without needing to buy and power a crapload of the little wifi boxes?

If so, then tell me what is the exact type of RF chip beign used.
What I know about Harmish is that he is the agent for NZ for this product.
With 4.5 mill people that is not so special. I would advice Harmish to take another Taakawa Maori beer and speak the truth.

if you want to market the socialway, rule numer #1 is: be honest and answer all questions ( not selective answers that best fit your commercial purpose ).

@richms, sorry not at the moment due to price constraints on the rf technology chips we are using.. and really 3xWifi Bridges $51 will give you 12 white zones and 3 rgb zones...

I would want dozens of RGB zones, one for each lamp in a festoon set pretty much. How about changing the LED drive so that the PWM doesnt get into the light output? If you sort that, and something like those recessed lights I would probably kit most of the loungeroom out with them.

stop believing any answer by Harmish, will get you going on an improved hack journey

hi latcho: I'm your friend man, chill out. I am not an agent for anywhere. I am an electronics architect, and all for the technology advancement and work with the product team.
correct, I didn't invent it, Samsung and other chip companies we use in the LEDs are the real inventors here.

Another Harmish twist to say that he actually engineered this bulb.
Well then I did too...

I am chill. I did not reveal the real producer did I ?
Commerce is commerce. Making money is cool. Pretending you invented this actual product is not.

Latcho, this is not the way to do it. If you have reservations then contact LimitlessLED directly via PM but don't do it in public. If you have something you can provide to myself. Another post like these and we will have to ban the account.

To take this thread back where it belongs.
I figured out how to run a simple javascript with nodeJS and create a nice hue color sweep on THE color bulbs.
LimitLess LED has a nice control script available too, only I was missing the context on how to run it. An answer did not follow, so I looked up how to send these JS scripted UDP commands from JS on a console.

Here follows a little example / howto.

- Just download NodeJS installer here and after installing add node.exe to your Windows PATH:

SET PATH=C:\Program Files\Nodejs;%PATH%
- now create an new JS text file: " ledsweep.js " and paste the code below.

- change the IP of the WifiBoxHost to your need in the script

- open a CMD prompt and go to the dir where you saved the JS script.

- type>>:  node ledsweep.js [ENTER]

Enjoy a smooth color sweep !

 <ledsweep.js>::
var WifiBoxPort = 50000;
var WifiBoxHost = '192.168.1.100';
const ColCmd = 0x20;
const CmdValEmpty = 0x00;
const EndByte = 0x55;
var dgram = require('dgram');
var timeOutLoopMS = 33;

var client = dgram.createSocket('udp4');
var fs = require('fs');
colorSweepLoop();


var sweepCol = 0;
function colorSweepLoop()
{
if(sweepCol >= 255) sweepCol = 0;
 var col = sweepCol++;
 var colHex = componentToHex(col);
 var message = new Buffer([ColCmd,colHex,EndByte]);
 client.send(message, 0, message.length, WifiBoxPort, WifiBoxHost, function(err, bytes) {
    if (err) throw err;
    //console.log('UDP sent to ' + HOST +':'+ PORT);
    //client.close();
});
setTimeout(colorSweepLoop,timeOutLoopMS);
}
function componentToHex(c) {
    var hex = c.toString(16);
    return hex.length == 1 ? "0x0" + hex : "0x"+hex;
}
