I’ve spent part of Christmas and the new year refurbishing our stairs (more about that later) – they turned out very nicely indeed.
But now on to the electronics part of this.
– Every step will have a (visually hidden) LED strip under the edge of the step, all connected to a JeeLabs LEDnode, and triggered by another Jeenode with a PIR sensor hanging over the steps (hidden among books on a bookshelf).
So far I have written the necessary software to test the coverage and response time of the motion sensor, and written the necessary routines for the LED node to be triggered by the home monitoring server.
This should be fun.
The stairs in question – before the LED’s have been attached.
