    Control ANY Light With Philips Hue

    Hi tekkfreakk, thank you for your reply.I Managed to find a bulb with the daughter board here in France at Darty, it's an E27 and the packaging is a little more grey(cf. photo below) than the previous one ( my previous B22) and mine had the silver text too.Regarding the (1) 4v-25v DC supply and (2) Ground I was thinking about leaving the daughter board on the bigger one maybe desoldering the big brown capacitor to get acces for soldering the wire to get the PWM signal and then put it back.About the FDH5500 or the IRF540N as I intend to drive 4x 7.2w 230v spotlights I think that their V(BR)DSS : Drain-to-Source Breakdown Voltage of 100v / 55V is not enough, is that right ? Could u suggest me a suitable one or maybe I'm just wrong about this.Also is it possible that the 3.3v is weak becau...

Could u suggest me a suitable one or maybe I'm just wrong about this.Also is it possible that the 3.3v is weak because the daughter board is no longer on the big one ? Also I'm not sure what you mean by weak as for the IRF540N the VGS(th) Gate Threshold Voltage needs to be between 2 and 4V ?Thanks in advance for your time.

    Control ANY Light With Philips Hue

    Hi, This is very interesting for me, thanks for sharing, as I had the previous board of the B22 which doesn't have the daughter board. I wonder if you could give me some information on where you bought the newer B22 with the daughter board ? Is there a serial number change on this new version of it ?I bought mine from amazon and I have these numbers:ASIN : B0152WXDDSKU : 929001137101I'd like to get the daughter board but I don't want to waste another similar B22 bulb without it.Could you describe the wiring and the parts on your last photo ?Another question, but the last one, could you give me some information on the NPN transistor and the mosfet so I can buy them too for my project.Thanks in advance for your time.
