I am not new to processing, but have no experience with hardware components.
So I want to control lights (colors and position would be great) using arduino or wiring.
Which board to choose? How can I control lights? Can i use a DMX controllable light with these boards?
Also please suggest me some controllable light source, I want to display lot's of different colors, and motors would be also great. I want to create a relaxing room with slow motions etc.., so power (watt) should be low.
Can i use a DMX controllable light with these boards?
What sort of lights are these, it makes a huge difference as to how you wire them up.
Thanks, this looks good.
I am thinking about buying a cheaper LED source...similar to the one below.
Usually they have this kind of info:
master-slave DMX512, 4-6 channels
This one is:
- RGB control mode
So I either need to create my own DMX shield or something and connect it to arduino, or buy one. Does anyone have information where to buy one? There are some places ( http://www.skpang.co.uk/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=140_142&products_id=663 )
but that isn't really cheap...
I can put together things, so I might want only the board, or board with resistorc etc without assembled.
