Wireless IGBT-dimmers for lightning
Status: In progress.
A sister to chatbee and moizbee. Dimmbee is a stand alone module for setting/dimming lightning/lamps in an apartment or house wirelessly using the Zigbee/MiWi/IEEE 802.15.4 protocol. Each module should be so small that it can be fitted in existing light installation and take its power from lamp power supply. A host Zigbee module connected to a PC via USB using genericusb or directly to internet using a genericethernet can be used to control the lights. When lights are remote controlled and dimmed they can be scheduled to turn on/off at specific or random times as well creating artificial maybe togheter with the internet alarm-clock.
A PCB with a MRF24J40, 3.3V supply, BALUN, a microcontroller and high current componentes for controlling the lights. Image to be added.
Firmware written in Microchip C18.
Latest soure code and schematic/PCB-layout can be found in repository
/hardware/trunk/schematics/Dimmbee/ in SVN.
