Components and supplies

About this project

The ASL shield can:

  • Get up to 24 stairs setup availability.
  • Use fade out effect and PWM modulation.
  • Connect wirelessly with more than 20 of the leading home automation controllers on the market.
  • Readily be used with sketch.
  • Combine with Mysensors library. (It can be included as relay. In this case, no light sensor is needed, just create a Day/Night scene inside your home controller.)

Here's how I did it...

Step 1:

Get those parts to start the project:

Files for download

Step 2:

Once you get it, follow these step-by-step instructions:

1. Follow the schematic sketch below to wire it up.

2. Download and install Mysensor-master (optional) and ShiftPWM -master libraries to Arduino IDE.

3. Download a sketch. (There are two options: choose sketch ForASLMysensorInkluded or ForASLOnlyLightSensor for controlling day/night mode.

  • ForASLOnlyLightSensor - will work as standalone controller.
  • ForASLMysensorInkluded - will work as standalone controller + with the option to connect to Mysensors network.

4. Edit the code: Set the number of stairs, pause between on/off, check your sensor's type, adjust photocell sensitivity (if using one).

5. Upload the code to Arduino Nano.

6. Insert Arduino to ASL Shield.

7. Insert NRF24L01+ module. (optional)

8. Set Mysensors plugin to including mode. (optional)

9. Power up ASL Shield.

(optional: means you can skip this step, if the ForASLOnlyLightSensor.ino sketch is being used.)

Step 3:

NOTE:

ASL shield needs Mysensors Gateway to communicate with your home controller. If you do not have such, please visit www.mysensors.org

Enjoy!!!
