For poorly illuminated stairs to a decrease degree, I needed to create automated lighting that might add a ‘wow’ issue and be enjoyable and really completely different.
Sure, in fact, it could have been potential for some form of regular overhead lighting managed by a change, however that requires somebody to do one thing (easy sufficient, I do know, to flip a change) nevertheless it’s boring. I needed one thing completely different. Admittedly, my venture is overkill however enjoyable and offered various challenges.
So, first, let’s evaluation the venture specs.
- Lighting for an 11-step staircase resulting in the decrease degree that activates and off robotically
- ‘Wow’ issue that might make individuals notice a really completely different and enjoyable expertise
The challenges have been:
- Methods to make the lights come on and off robotically utilizing some form of sensory enter
- Not altering the construction of the staircase
- Not having to invent a brand new system for each step whereas having every step carry out as a part of an total system
- Being able to make modifications, updates and carry out upkeep simply on the general system–and never 11 instances for every step
My answer concerned a staircase illuminated with LEDs, a sensor at every step related to an impartial board with all of the boards related and speaking with one another to kind the system.
- Every step is impartial however can work together with others
- Simple updates to the programs
- Means to alter lights or add one thing new with no modifications to the prevailing boards
- System may be managed from any laptop to make modifications, updates, carry out upkeep
Here’s a quick video demonstration of the venture:
