ESP8266 LED Lighting: Using QuinLED with Domoticz

Today we’re going to take a look at using QuinLED with Domoticz. First I’ll take you along while we install Domoticz on a Fedora 25 Server and then we configure it work with QuinLED. Continue reading ESP8266 LED Lighting: Using QuinLED with Domoticz

ESP8266 LED Lighting: Installing COB LED downlights controlled using QuinLED

Because we’re now living in the house I can finally get to work on installing the actual lights I’m going to be using all throughout the house. So, I made a video on how to install lights and connected them to QuinLED!

ESP8266 LED lighting: QuinLED soldering tutorial & Tools

After getting all the required components together it’s time to solder them onto the QuinLED board. I made a 30 minute video going through all the steps of soldering everything together trying to show that it’s actually quite easy to do so yourself!

This post also highlights on all the tools I use while working with QuinLED. I describe most of them and explain a little bit what I use them for. Continue reading ESP8266 LED lighting: QuinLED soldering tutorial & Tools

ESP8266 LED Lighting: Revisit and history of QuinLED

It’s been about 1,5 to 2 years since I started the project to create my own wirelessly controlled PWM LED dimmer. Since that time I’ve kept refining the PCB and code and this post will be a sort of revisit and revision history of QuinLED.

In future posts and videos we will be doing a new tutorial on what components you need, how to solder it all together, program the ESP8266 and link it to Domoticz. I also plan to create posts about the LED Power wall I’m going to build to house everything centralized in my house.

ESP8266 LED lighting: LED Power Supply China vs Mean Well

As you’ve been able to read in previous posts, I’m working on a lighting system in my new home based on LED downlights and LED strip.

Although the LED Downlights can come with a driver, I’ve opted not to use those (and save about ~5$ per light). I will be driving both directly with DC power. This requires me to have a large amount of DC wattage. And since buying power supplies for this is an investment, I’ve decided to test a few “cheap” Chinese models vs Mean Well models to see how they compare and which would be the best investment.
