Automating a Xiaomi Mi lamp with Arduino Nano #Arduino
The Xiaomi Mi Computer Monitor Light Bar provides extra computer lighting without taking desktop space by sitting atop monitors 1.25″ thick and less. It has a wireless remote control for adjusting the light but no automation like more expensive products.
Ben Allen has posted on GitHub a proof of concept for automating control of the light using an Arduino Nano and RF24 module, all under an MIT license.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
