i'm looking to make a series of floor lamps to use on a stage setting. the simple LEDs that I have are clearly not bright enough.
so what kind of options do i have for really bright LEDs?
and how would you control a bigger light with arduino? say a normal lamp?
For LEDs you could use a high power LED with a driver. For controlling a regular lamp you would need a relay
thanks. what is an example of a high power LED with a driver ? maybe on a site like adafruit?
and how does the relay work? (i imagine it’s something like when you put your lights on a timer)
Well i attached a schematic for controlling a relay with arduino. And heres a link for a driver, a LED, and a heatsink.

thanks, this is really interesting to me :)
Yea me too. Now the LED I linked to is insanely bright, its as powerful as 3.5 maglites. If you want less just search ebay for 1w or 3w led
Yea i just posted that one since i am using it for a current project. It puts out 456 lumens
