Under the Bed Nightlight
I made this, but I found the LDR only worked in the daylight and not the dark. I:E The leds came on in the daylight and were not activated in the dark. So I redid the board and schematic using Eagle. Now it all works as it should be, the Led strip now comes on in the dark.

after putting this together I noticed that the LDR and 10k resistor are wired in reverse, the LDR should go to grd and the 10k resistor should go to the vcc side. check the Arduino diagram then look at the board diagram and check how the LDR is orientated.

any chance you could help us out with this. please.
Hi Brad, my controllers are slightly different to the one you show, but I guess they work on the same principal. in your pics you show where to cut the strip on the board but when looking at the other pics further down there is no cut on the board. reason I'm asking is because I've already fried 2 controllers. I've connected everything up as described and programmed the attiny85, but when I power it up the transistors start to smoke. the only thing I can see different is the controller does not have all the smd components yours has. any ideas would help.. regards bill
I'm not disputing the fact that you've made this instructble and manipulated the code to work on arduino. as for yours being advanced as you put it. I don't think so. like I said I've built this for my bike following the instuctions on www. electronics lab.com and it works perfect. I used arduino to program the attiny85 both the 8pin dip and the smd. Anyway that's it I've said my piece. people can either build your version or the can follow the link and build the original version.
hi Roger. go to, www.electronics-lab.com in search box type inmotorcycle universal gear indicator.There you will find full instructions on how to build this project on an attiny85.
sorry alok014, but I can't give you credit for something that is not completely yours. if you had put the link in for the original site then that would have been acceptable.
This has been done before using attiny 85.... This is the Web links for it. www.electronics-lab.com/. when you go to the website in the search box type motorcycle universal indicator. I built it for my bike 3 years ago. It gives you the full code for the attiny85 . also gives you the board layout so you can make your own boards. I'd recommend this site for this project it has the full instuctions on how to build it along with videos. that's where this instructsble comes from as do all the pics.
you have to make sure your XOR values are correct also the type has to be adalight and your output must be dev/ttyAMCO. I had the same problem till I changed it. hope this helps.
yes sorry, I was having a blonde moment. lol.
Hi, you say to trim the anode leg on the 5th columb because it sits above the ic, but in your photos showing the led grid on the board the ic is at the bottom.....which way is correct or does it not matter which way the led matrix goes?
Hiya Nick, what's the difference between this MD version and the old blue led version? Because I'm using ide 1.0.6 which I used for the blue led version with no problems. But the MD version will not upload it just comes up with errors. if I use ide 1.6.10 it uploads with no problems and now the blue led version won't upload. Any ideas what the problem might be?
Hi, I followed you instructable and very pleased with it, Have you got the circuit diagram for the ATtiny 84 version that you have made. have you thought about doing another instuctable on building this version and how to program the ATtiny. Regards Bill
