Hii Friends Today I'll Show You How To Make Simple DIY Eclipse Wall Light Using ESP8266

SO LET'S Make It🔥

 

 

I created this project after I was inspired by smartphone controlled neopixels in a friends house but his were shop-bought. I thought "how hard can it be to make my own, it would be much cheaper too!"

(✯ᴗ✯) (✯ᴗ✯)

Supplies:

Hardware:

Ws2812b RGB Led Strip

Wires

: Buying these from local shops would be a better

Software:

Arduino IDE

BLYNK App

Step 1: WS2812B LED (Neopixel) Strips Are Individually Addressable LED Strips

WS2812B LED (Neopixel) Strips are individually addressable LED strips. These are awesome tools. The ability to program each LED individually using only one data line is amazing. The pad on the strips allow you to solder directly to this semi-flexible PCB, but I find that a little cumbersome. Here's how I make modular hookups for these types of strips or the older 4-pin style of addressable strips.

Step 2: Print Your Plate With 3D Printer

FAATH5HKD4IX6CN.jpg?auto=webp&frame=1&crop=3:2&width=320&md=1595892017

I made this plate using 3D printer

If you don't have a 3D printer, don't worry, you can make it without a 3D printer.

You will need a box lid

And you can use it to make it 😞

You can Download 3d Printing File From Here.

Step 3: RGB STRIP LED

FPX935BKD4IX80C.jpg?auto=webp&frame=1&crop=3:2&width=320&md=1595893209

I used this W2812b RGB Strip led in it

I would advise you to use the same as they are very good

Now you put the strip led in a plate

As shown in the image

Step 4: Connect the RGB Led With Esp8266

FSTG7MMKD4IX8MS.jpg?auto=webp&frame=1&crop=3:2&width=320&md=1595893238

I have used ESP8266 in it, if you also have Wemos D1, then we can use it

Connections :-

RGB LED ESP8266

DIN Pin D3

GND GND

VCC 3.3v

Step 5: Upload Code in ESP8266

FTBXLYPKD4IX9IO.jpg?auto=webp&frame=1&crop=3:2&width=320&md=1595893821

Download Libraries

First we will need the adafruit neopixel library to control the LEDs. It can be found in the libraries manager, just search for 'adafruit neopixel' and select the one shown and install it....
Then to download the board definitions, open prefrences and paste ..

http://arduino.esp8266.com/stable/package_esp8266c... into the 'additional board URLs' box. Then open boards manager and search for 'esp8266' it should be the first one, click on it and install it....

Code
Create a new sketch and name it 'neopixels on esp8266 with blynk' (or something that you're going to remember). Paste in the code. Change 'yourAuthCode' to the auth code for your project. (found in the 'nut' icon in blynk app) Change your wifi name and password to those of your network. Set the number of neopixels to the length of your strip. Plug your MCU into your computer, select MCU from the board menu in the ide, select the COM port and baud rate(115200) but ignore all the rest, it should be pre-configured.

Then upload!!

Step 6: Blynk

FKZMCZKKD4IX9T7.jpg?auto=webp&frame=1&crop=3:2&width=320&md=1595894422

Install blynk app from app store or play store.

Create a New Project in BLYNK app.Write Project Name and Select ESP8266 or NodeMCU from dropdown.An AUTH token will be sent to your registered email, note this down.Tap on the screen and add a ZERGBA WIDGET on screen..
Note: This will change colors only over WIFI not over internet.

Step 7: Upload the Code to NodeMCU and Play

FKRUNKFKD4IXA58.jpg?auto=webp&frame=1&width=320&md=1595895022

Upload the code to your NodeMCU or ESP8266 and device will be displayed online on your BLYNK app.

Click Play button on top right of your app and start changing colors of your light. Oh yeah!

Small (5.25" / 133.35mm) clock and art display built with 60 RGB LEDs, controlled with an ESP8266 using the FastLED library.

Fully open-source, and programmable over Wi-Fi or micro USB cable.

If there is any problem then you can ask me in the comment

Step 9: : Thanks Nextpcb for Sponsoship

If you don't make your PCBs yourself, where do you make them?Personally, I do not have the space and the courage (nor the skill) to do them myself.For SF, I turn to Util-Pocket, because I find that the quality is excellent for the price.For the DF (with metallic holes), I tried several companies, all of which do a good job, but it costs a lot.This time I addressed myself here. I had 3 circuits to do, totaling an average surface of 49 cm2.When I saw that the minimum quantity to order was 5 PCBs, I continued my order out of curiosity, just to see the quote.And when I saw the asking price, I placed the order.NEXTPCB
