Introduction: Arduino Bluetooth RGB Mood Light in 5 Minutes
In this project I'll show you how to build a simple and complex Arduino Bluetooth projects you can control with your smartphone.
This is made simple with this smart application Remote XY.
All those project can be made simple thanks to this genius application.
Here is my Channel on Youtube:
Here is a detailed step by step guide and code.

Step 1: Hardware Components
Arduino UNO Board
HC-06 Bluetooh Module
Red, Green and Blue LEDs
I connected the negative (shorter) leg of the three LEDs together for easy use.
Step 2: Circuit Connection
The connection is very simple.
You connect the Arduino Board to the Bluetooth Module via the hardware serial port(Pin #0 and Pin #1).
Connect LEDs as follows
GND Common Short Legs
Pin # 9 Red LED +ve terminal (Longer Leg)
Pin # 10 Green LED +ve terminal (Longer Leg)
Pin # 11 Blue LED +ve terminal (Longer Leg)
Step 3: RemoteXY Editor
Open Remote XY Editor at RemoteXY.com and place controls. RGB control and Toggle switch. Here is where you can design the Smartphone interface.
Select Hardware Serial
Speed(Baud Rate) 9600
You can configure controls appearance here.
Step 4: Software Generation
You need to download the generated code from the editor. You also need to include the Remote XY library from the same page.
Then you need to edit the code in Arduino IDE.
The final code is attached within this instructable.
Step 5: Final Interface
Download Remote XY App from Google Play or Apple Store.
Open it and connect to your device.
You can see the interface loads on your smartphone.
This is how the interface looks on the Smartphone.
Step 6: Operational Test
Run the application and power up the device.
Try the different modes of operation.
In the RGB mode, you can control the output color using the RGB circular control.
In the MOOD mode, the light fades in and fades out automatically.
In this instructable, I made a quick light diffuser using a piece of white paper.
