Remote controlled LED lighting effects




LED’s have become most important component in lighting industry due to its miniature size and less power consumption. Also LED lights are lot more attractive than the primitive lights used once. This project focused on building an remote controlled LED with multiple lighting effects. Imagine setting the mood of your room using remote, will be cool isn’t it.Remote controlled LED lighting effects

DESIGN OF RECEIVER AND CONTROLLER:

The receiver and Controller part comes with TSOP1738, a receiver capable of receiving IR beam of 38Khz which is the operating frequency of a normal household remote. This receiver acts as an activator for the controller connected to it. PIC12F1822, a 8 pin low end microcontroller is deployed as a controller in this project. Other low end microcontrollers can also be used for this purpose.Schematic Remote controlled LED lighting effects

Other low end microcontrollers can also be used for this purpose.

The Microcontroller cannot produce enough current to drive a large set of transistors. So we are using a Transistors as a driver element in this circuit, RA2 pin from the controller feeds the signal to the base of these transistors. The reason for using two individual transistors is to create attractive effect when driven by a pulse from the Microcontroller. When the Pulse from MCU is Logic 1 Q1 will activate the LED’s connected to it, when it was logic 0 Q2 will activate all the LED’s connected to it.
