Need some white lights now, RGB ones rock. Can anyone confirm one wifi bridge can control 1 RGB zone and a seperate white zone?




Most problems are the result of previous solutions...

Yep should do that, mentions it on the website

"Using iPhone/Android with the WiFi Bridge Receiver:
Each WiFi Bridge does up to 5 zones
• 4 zones of up to 100 bulbs per zone for White.
• 1 zone of up to 100 bulbs per zone for Color.
• Additional bridges can be used to add more zones."

Hamish,

A bug with the wifi controller
If the wifi password contains other characters it doesn't save the password correctly

e.g my password contains !$ etc but they change to %21%24 and it wont connect

So far so good, I found the size of the RGB atleast wouldn't fit in the cover for our ceiling fan which is a bit of a shame. I agree that the doco needs some work, I would almost remove it and direct them to a link on the front page of a website with current documents.

Having said that just purchased 2 whites and a RGB :) Some LED strip lights would be helpful to for cupboards and wardrobes

thanks Skewt, I'll definitely look at allowing special characters in the wifi password. I have also noticed that our wifi SSID can not contain spaces (i.e. no special characters), I'll look into that also.

Cheers,

Can you make the RGB bulbs output White? Warm White? On the colour whell in Hamish's App, there is no white.


To set them to White, it is on Mode0  you can press the M- button. or say if you are on Mode3, then pres M- 3 times to get back to Mode zero.  It is more of a Cool Blue White.. Our Warm White / Cool White bulbs are real white and much brighter.

My network is WPA2 Personal (TKIP+AES encryption) on DD-WRT.


yes, it can connect to this.. WPA2 is very common. just ensure no special characters in the ssid and password. and choose WPA2_PSK(CCMP)   this will connect it to your wifi router

TKIP + AES is not common, AES only is the correct choice for a 802.11n network.

Can I get more info on those din mount meters on the site? One for the flatmates room at least would definatly help. Are they open enough to get charting up on cosm or similar without problems?

perhaps you can create a new thread, or email us direct about this. We developed and built a small limited number of them with the primary goal of entering the GE ecomagination competition in November last year, they are still undergoing development and not ready for the public yet. They will only make it into homes if we can get some assistance from General Electric or startup investors. yes we are using our same led wifi udp technology for reading/graphing the meters and with password to reset totalkWh from iPhones/Androids.

-cheers,

Hamish.

yes that is correct.  you can run 1 RGB zone and a Separate white zone (4 of them) all from the same wifi bridge.  you can also add more wifi bridges if you need more RGB or White zones. Each wifi bridge can be renamed in the android or iPhone/iPad app, for example "upstairs" and "downstairs"

 

Cheers,

Hamish.

reven: im going to hold out for a stronger bulb, have a very large lounge I like to put these in but need don't want it to be too dark.


Hi reven, what would be your minimum considered normal light W? 60W, 75W, 100W? The latest and greatest in lighting control is Clipsal Cbus dimmable installations only allows 2A per group(circuit) and only works with incandescent, which limits cbus installations to 60W bulbs when you have more than a couple on one circuit and most cbus and wall dimmers rule out CFLs and LEDs due to incompatible dimmers vs lights.

Now imagine the new tech:  controller and dimmer inside every light bulb, totally compatible dimmer technology because they are part of the same unit.

its kinda like SSD drives, everyone could only afford the 64Gb ones at the beginning, until it became more mainstream, now everyone is sporting 260Gb SSDs :)


Trust me, I could design a 100W version tomorrow... but it would not be cost effective. Hopefully component supplier companies such as SamsungLED can come out with more efficient (colder), cost effective and brighter LED components.

I have been working on a new 36W LED downlight design, that would blow you away, but it does not look cost effective on paper. at $85 per downlight. :)

 

Cheers,

Andy shows off his raspberry pi doing the control of the limitlessLED, an arduino with an RFID that has rules to set to show to different colours based on the two different cards.

Very cool.
