So there are certainly other ways to control RGB LED strips with Arduino, but the point of this project was to keep the main hardware setup with the power supply and DMX decoder, and then get a better control experience on top by using the browser or your voice. And I chose to do that by generating DMX.Now.. if you want to use any kind of different power control, you should still be able to easily integrate the webpage shown on this instructable. Let me know if you want me to expand on this!
Hi, so with an Arduino and a Bluetooth shield, afaik you wouldn't be able to build the whole webpage system. However, if you're only interested in "Ok Google", you could make the Arduino send the DMX signal upon receiving a serial request via Bluetooth... and it looks like this app might help with that.I haven't tried it, but according to the description, if you link the "Ok Google" command to writing a file called mnt/sdcard/sendtmp.txt in Tasker, you could Serial.read the incoming data on the Arduino (i.e. the RGB color) and then "turn on the lights".Let me kow if this works.. and good luck,
