After yesterday’s post, this RGB strip control project is essentially done. Keep in mind that I’m doing this only to adjust what comes out as “white”. I’ll leave light levels and color variations up to nature, since all I need to do is look out the window…
But since wireless control is present anyway, I might as well create a little demo using the JeeMon software.
So here goes. The setup I’m using is as follows:
The JeeNode is configured as node 30 and the JeeLink as node 1 (in the same group). The manual way to send out a color command via serial USB is to type:
Where each of the four values are in the range 0..255 (0 = off, 255 = full on).
Now the GUI version (Mac OS X):
The code for this is as follows:
Like everything in JeeMon, it’s cross platform since it uses Tcl/Tk.
Here are the screen shots for Linux (Ubuntu) and Windows (W7, XP, 2K), respectively:
As you can see, the light gray background color was adjusted for the Mac – on some of the other platforms it needs to be darkened a bit to match the default label background.
Anyway. I’m not a GUI wizard, so this’ll have to do for now…
