I finally completed the multi endpoint with 4 RGB lights. I was hoping to drive more lights with a single JN5168, but it seems 4 RGB’s is the absolute limit. Since the JN5168 only has 5 PWM outputs, an external PWM controller is required
Last week I completed the firmware capable of controlling up to 5 lights and I can finally control my ceiling lights through the Hue system.
Update (mar 23, 2017) Now supporting Multi Endpoint Lights (RGB is coming). I put all the relevant info on this page, and I will keep it updated. Update (dec 3, 2016) Pushed the sources to GitHub, available here In my previous posts I described how I was able to connect a Mesh Bee with cloned […]
As of today I am able to connect any JN5168, with custom firmware, to my Hue. The problem I thought I was having was not with the Bee’s, but with the NXP demo software and a lost key.
After my last post I kind of gave up on my project of creating a custom ZLL device to control with the Hue. It was to time consuming and there was no real progress. Until yesterday.
For a while now, I have had this idea to create a hardware interface for custom led lighting which connects to my Philips Hue. Since the Hue device only accepts Zigbee Light Link compliant devices, I did some research on the possibilities of creating my own device. As I am not an electronics engineer, I was looking for components that require minimal […]
