Motion sensing led strip with dimming on/off?
I'm making a coat rack that will be hung in a poorly lit hallway. The coat rack will have a basic mountain shape to it and I'd like to put some LEDs behind the mountains that fade on when I approach and fade off after a minute or so. Is this possible?
I'm brand new at this but I'm not afraid to learn. The shelf is about 3 feet long and I thought I'd use about 3 feet total of an LED strip (1' behind the mountain and 2' pointing at the hooks).
I'm incorporating a charging station into this as well. I would love for the LEDs to be able to run off a USB charger (like this one from Anker)
I'd love some recommendations for how to do this. Arduino? Raspberry Pi? Something else?
Thank you in advance.
