Another amazing post from Jeelabs

This is a really handy post from Jeelabs today which describes in details exactly what I will be going through soon. Really great to get some background before I start rehashing the same problems. Thanks J C!


Starting out a small little project

I’ve been tasked with creating a lighting system for the stairs in my sisters house so that when movement is detected a set of LED strip lights comes on for a period of time so that when she moves around at night she does not have to turn on the main lights. Over the last while I have collected the parts and have found the time to start this project. It is pretty basic so I am just using an Atmel ATTINY45, a PIR sensor and a meter or so and LEDs I got on eBay. I will post schematics and updates as I go along but all I’ve got is blinking at the moment.


You will also notice my EVE board lying on the desk there which arrived this weekend. Excited about putting that together and seeing what it can do!
