Connecting RGBW controller to 220v LED strip


Recommended Posts

How to connect a Fibaro RGBW controller to a 220v LED strip


220v LED strips can run for 50m vs 12vDC/24vDC that have a limitation of 5m/10m (then you need to start adding amps, additional controllers and return wires)


You will need:

1. Fibaro RGBW controller x 1

2. Home Center 2

3. Fibaro Dimmer x 3

4. 220v RGB LED 50m roll


Connect before each of the R,G,B lines a dimmer on each line. Let's call them RDimmer, GDimmer and BDimmer 

The RGBW controller will not be connected to any LED strip. It is just used as an interface for the users.



RGB device ID is 100

RDimmer is 101

GDimmer is 102

BDimmer is 103


Create a scene and add the following code. Change the device IDs with your own.





%% properties
%% globals
local colorSet = fibaro:getValue(100, "lastColorSet");
local RGBWTable= {};
local i = 1;
for value in string.gmatch(colorSet,"(%d+)") do     
    RGBWTable = value;
    i = i + 1;
local RRR = math.floor((RGBWTable[1] / 2.55)) ;
local GGG = math.floor((RGBWTable[2] / 2.55)) ;
local BBB = math.floor((RGBWTable[3] / 2.55)) ;
fibaro:call(101, "setValue", RRR);
fibaro:call(102, "setValue", GGG);
fibaro:call(103, "setValue", BBB);
