Introduction: DIY Internet Controlled Lamp
Hey everyone, in this instructable, I will show you how to make a DIY lamp that can be controlled from anywhere in your house.
Step 1: Parts and Tools
Here are the parts and tools that you will need to make this project:
Linkit ONE board and WiFi antenna (included with the board)
Acrylic (white or clear) 3mm
5x Ultrabright LEDs
Computer with the latest version of the arduino IDE and linkit ONE drivers
Soldering Iron and solder
Desktop printer and paper
Mitre saw (I used a scrap piece, so I didn't need one.)
Step 2: Glue Template Onto Maple
Download the attached template and print it. Now, use a glue stick to glue it onto the maple.
Step 3: Cut Out Template
Use a bandsaw to cut out the maple case. Then, cut out a piece of acrylic the same size as the outside of the maple box.
Step 4: Glue Enclosure Together
Use wood glue to connect each of the pieces of the enclosure. You may need to sand down some of the sides.
Step 5: Wiring
Use the attached circuit diagram to make the connections to the Linkit ONE.
Step 6: Code
Download the (first) attached code and open it. Then, change the line that says "#define WIFI_AP "Your Network" " and change "Your Network" to the name of your wifi network. Do the same with the line of code after that, but change "Your Password" to the password to your wifi network. Now, upload it to the Linkit ONE. Open the serial monitor and copy the first IP address shown as you will need it later.
Now that you have the IP address, download the second code and do the same to the two lines of code, in fact, you can just copy/paste. Now, upload the code to the linkit ONE
Step 7: Mount Electronics
Use hot glue to secure the LEDs and the Linkit ONE to the enclosure
Step 8: How to Use
Start by plugging in the linkit ONE to a power source, then, paste in the IP address that you found in the first code into a web browser.
There will be two buttons, ON, and OFF. Press either to use the Lamp. If it turns on, you have successfully completed this project! If you like it, please like, share, or follow.
