Arduino ASL shield is designed to build and integrate a stair lighting system to your home controller.
Ready to use code examples for Arduino . ( ForASLOnlyLightSensor.ino – simple code example
and ForASLMysensorInkluded.ino if you are going to connect to home controller.)
You can edit this to add more lights or to use a different lighting sequence.
Can be connected wirelessly with more than 20 of the leading home automation controllers.
HOW TO BUILD
1. Follow the schematic sketch bellow to wire it up.
2. Download and install Mysensor-master (Optional) and ShiftPWM -master libraries to Arduino IDE:
3. Download the sketch .
(Three options to choose a sketch: ‘ForASLOnlyLightSensor’ , ‘ASLFirstLast.ino’ or ‘ForASLMysensorIncluded’.
The therd one is for inclusion to mysensors network.For more info visit Mysensors.org . )
4. Edit code : Set number of stairs, pause between on/off, check your sensors type, adjust photocell
sensitivity (If using)
5. Upload the code to Arduino Nano.
6. Insert Arduino to ASL Shield.
7. Insert NRF24L01+ modul . (Optional)
8. Set Mysensors plugin to including mode. (Optional)
8. Power up ASL Shield.
(Optional – means you can skip this step, if ‘ForASLOnlyLightSensor.ino’ or ‘ASLFirstLast.ino’sketch is used)
A. You can use any SMART HOME relay to control day/night mode.
B. You can connect ASL to your home controller using Mysensors network.
In this case you do not need a light sensor for Day/Night mode activation.
Let it be controlled by the Home controller.
ASL shield needs Mysensors Gateway to communicate with your home controller and ‘ForASLMysensorIncluded’ sketch to be uploaded to Arduino.
ASL shield will then appear as the relay on your home controller dashboard page.
