I received mine today, and it works nicely with the 'LEDDimmer.apk' app.
For those who don't know the device: it is a RGB-dimmer through WiFi, based on the popular ESP8266 chip. In the default mode it presents itself as an accespoint and you connect your phone to it.
Productpage (translated from Chinese > English) (also saved PDF-file as mirror, attached to this post).
However, instead of connecting my Android phone to the accespoint-mode of this dimmer, i ofcourse would like to connect it to Domoticz
But how? The code from Quindor' is only for a single monochrome LED-strip. How can we convert this to RGB, so we have a nice colorpicker inside Domoticz?
Maybe use the current firmware and try to mimick the app behaviour with something like 'netcat' to send raw socket commands? I will try to connect the box to my WiFi soon and see if i can sniff the traffic with Wireshark
By the way i put the app online here because i couldn't find it anywhere on the internet, i got this copy by mail from the seller when i asked him about it. Sorry, link is down, don't have the app anymore Search for "LEDDimmer.apk" or ask the seller.
