Tips on how to Make Computerized LED Stair Lighting

Arduino-based, movement sensor-activated stair lights utilizing programmable LED strips. Contains examples of sunshine patterns, description of the way it works, gear prices (2016 costs), hyperlinks to websites to purchase supplies, and schematic.

In the event you’ve by no means executed this earlier than it is best to in all probability get arrange with an Arduino starter equipment:
