How to turn on and off a light with python ?
What I am trying to code is not (or at least I dont think it is) very hard. I am trying to code a simple program to turn on and off a light. I will later connect it with an Arduino to turn on and off a light with my program. I need the command to control the light/LED, if you know it. I also would like to know how to give a time limit to the lighting time.
If you can help me thank you !
P.S. : I am exactly trying to make a code to make optic morse. I got the code to translate text to morse, but now I need to translate morse code into light signals. Once I will now how to turn on and off a light/LED, I think it will be easier.
Hi, OP. An interesting thread. I am not a programmer and don’t understand the whole process. I just wanted to ask whether it will be possible to use a similar program to turn on and off led strip light from https://www.vont.com/product/smart-strip-lights-led-strip-lights/? They look cool in my room and I like them but I wanted to be able to turn them off and on automatically at certain time.
For example, I usually go to bed at 10 pm, and fall asleep around 10:30 pm. Is it possible that the lights turn off themselves at that time that was set by me? I am sorry if it’s a stupid question, I just want to know if it’s possible.
you can't do that on repl.it, and no this is not easy at all.
First, you need access to the hardware, the easiest lang to do this would be something like C/C++, but if you are using raspberry pi, you could also use node.js.
@InvisibleOne That was the last part I needed to finish the code but I did not know how it worked (I am quite new). I was hesitating between pi or arduino but you convinced me, thanks. If you are interested I'll show you the final projet with the LED/lamp connected. If I get it to work it'll translate text into optic morse (light signals).
P.S. Can a pi be transportable ?
