How is this working ?

PID - NodeID - R - G - B - CRC

MQTT Control

For convenience here, I used a ready Android application MQTT Dash which worked out of the box once I used the topic payload format for colors which is the #RRGGBB (e.g #FFFFFF for white). It is enough to program the right topic address (e.g. Nodes/10/RGB), this app is cool as it even provides colors pickers.

By the way, we can see here a TVSet Power as well which is an off the shelf Wemo switch connected through OpenHAB2 and MQTT.


If you need just brighter light for your room, do not use this Panel which is more valuable than that, I plan to shit it to a central messaging notifiers and use it to display text and symbols.
