Add nRF2401 & Arduino Functionality to Hacked #IKEA Molgan LED Lamp | @IKEAUSA

Or how to turn this:


into this:


Thanks to Yveaux for sharing this project over at OpenHardware – Yveaux shows how to turn a cheap, $5 lamp into a project with wireless/radio functionality and Arduino Pro Mini compatibility.

Original features

  • Powered from 3 AAA batteries
  • Motion PIR sensor, which switches on the LED light for some time when detecting motion.
  • Nice, compact enclosure
  • Mounting plate
  • Cheap, approx. E 4,99
    Hacked features

  • Atmel ATmega328P microntroller, compatible with Arduino Pro-Mini
  • nRF24L01+ 2.4GHz radio module (not WiFi!)
  • Optional ATSHA204 CryptoAthentication chip
  • Default sketch implements a MySensors enabled motion sensor
  • Serial connector for programming sketches
  • ISP for programming the ATmega directly
  • LED light function can be removed, either partially or complete, to save battery power
  • Quite cheap, around E 10,- including Molgan.
    The project consists of a custom PCB, which is mounted on top of the original Molgan PCB. I had the custom PCB produced in white, to prevent it from being visible trhough the semi-transparent cover of the Molgan.
