Step 1: The product and proect goals
I want to use them in the color fade mode, but the color fade in these bulbs suck. For some reason they fade the LEDs to almost white color, which doesn't look that great.
I am hoping to find some hidden modes, or alternative ways of controlling this thing without too much work.
Step 2: Sniffing the remote
I soldered on some wires to the LED, and put the cover back on, so I could have easy access to the signal while pressing the buttons.
Step 3: IR carrier frequency
One important thing I can get from the IR remote, is the carrier frequency. I used the frecuency measurement in my oscilloscope to measure this.
