We wanted LEDs lighting but commercial solution are too expensive and we didn't find any open source project to set up easily.

Each LED strip can be controlled individually with a single color (for the moment) or grouped together as rooms to set up the light pattern of your dream.
You control everything through an Android App.

This project is in early development and aims to add many more functionalities as it grows.

This project is meant to works on a wifi network with a RPI as server and ESP32 as modules.  The RPI can create its own local network or work like a bridge or switch if needed.

The setup only needs you to put the server, the modules and the app on the same wifi network, and every component  can find each other on the network. 

You need to add another module ? Just connect it to the wifi and it will appear in your app immediatly.

You can control every LED strip individually or group them as rooms.
