A general question to the professionals here. I guess the rule section is the best section for my question at the moment.
I’m currently working on a fish tank solution. Now I have to make some general design decisions. Especially for the light control. The water exchange/refill and all the other stuff can be solved with onboard tools.
I control my light with the pca9685 module. The module is actually distributed as a servo driver, but it is indeed a LED driver. I already wrote the binding for the PCA9685 module using the I2C bus because there was no working/satisfying solution
The light has a course of the day. In the morning the sun rises and at noon the light is brightest… Everybody knows what I’m talking about…
But how do I do that? This is a very basic decision and that’s the reason I’m asking.
I could calculate the dimming curves with rules (as said already). Too complicated and inflexible
I could store the dimming curves in a table and read them in. Inflexible and the tables have to be created first.
I could build a webpage to create the dimming curves and store them in OpenHAB. Still too complicated.
I would like to have it in OpenHAB solution with drag and drop. Could one integrate using the frame widget… Is there a better solution? Better Ideas?
