The only bit I cant get working with MQTT2.4 is the color. If anyone has a solution for that it would be nice to see it. By the way I am not a coder so these things can be tricky.
I used a simple rule to implement the color part in this. Hope thats helpful.
Thanks will try it later
wled 0.8.6 is a pre release as of now. I found bugs(possibly errors from my side(I am still a noob)) using that. Better use 0.8.5 . Works perfectly.
Keep in mind, there’s this proposal open to change the MQTT structure for WLED in one of the upcoming releases. It’ll make things much easier, and I’ve been holding off from converting my LED controller project to WLED until that’s done. The only thing that concerns me about it, is there will no longer be a “group” topic (i.e. to allow you to send commands to single LED strips, or all at once), but you’ll still be able to send commands to individual LED strips, and have them sync each other via UDP…
Hi @bartus .
Yeah, the 9.0 release is scheduled to be released on 1st December. Pretty excited about it.
BTW I have subscribed to your channel. Its Really great. The first time I learned about OH was when you featured in a video with DrZzzz talking about the differences and similarities between HA and OH. And later I migrated to OH as soon as I found easy tutorials on your channel. Thanks for that BTW.
Just got WLED up and running in time for the tree to go up. I designed this case to make a neat setup with a D1 mini and am looking at how easily this can be setup in Openhab.
Just a heads up I have spent a few hours converting my espmilighthub binding into a wled binding and it is 70% working. I should have two way connectivity with wled so any changes in the phone app will show up right away in Openhab and vice versa. Already have google voice control working through Openhab. on/off, colour and brightness.
That sounds really great ,that will be great for my rooms were I have both kinds (milights and wled)
thanks a lot. a binding for wled is all we need
No problem. The binding is ready for beta testing over in the below thread and has more functionality than the other method used in this thread…
Thanks I’ll be using that from now on.
Is there a way to make the wled works like a touch dimmer? I build my kitchin lights whit w2812b strips and I wood like too be able to make it work whit short press to turn on and off and long press to make it dim up and down like a touch dimmer.
Yes It is Possible can do that.
Connect push button in Wemos mini Pin D2 and GND .
Then in WLED Setting page Time and Macro Page set macro
These macros can be executed using Button functionality
Button functionality have 3 action 1. Short Press 2. Long press 3. Double press
This is currently supported for the following parameters:
A, R, G, B, W, R2, G2, B2, W2, FX, SX, IX, FP, PL
