Controlling RGBW strips with rotary dimmer/pwm dimmer??


Recommended Posts



I want to build a hideout for my kids. And in there i want it to be a RGBW-led strip as light source controlled from a fibaro RGB module.


But is there anyway i can control the color with a physical button or ordinary rotary dimmer/pwm dimmer?

I want this just so the kids easily could change the color by themselves and not be depending on the UI in HC2.

If you use one momentary switch for each channel (RGBW/RGB) you can adjust the color to what you want.

  • Well, that's an easy way to do it. But is it easy enough for a 3-year old?

    I want like a pwm dimmer that generates 1-10 volt and some color spectrum in between. So if I turn the knob, the colour changes. Is this even possible?

    I saw on fibarolife.com that they sort of accomplished this with a distance sensor, rgbw strip and an arduino->pwn- 0-10v controlling a fibaro rgbw module

    Don't really know how they did it
