IoT AC dimmer for ESP8266 D1 Mini
On Aliexpress we found this IoT AC dimmer that can house a ESP8266 D1 mini. It’s made by a company called RobotDyn.
You can use it for dimming certain LED lamps as well as incandescent lamps. When dimming LED make sure the LED lamps are in fact dimmable and consume at least 10 Watt.
Setting it up in esphome is fairly straight forward:
substitutions: devicename: d1mini-dimmer01 long_devicename: D1 mini AC dimmer esphome: name: $devicename comment: $long_devicename platform: ESP8266 board: d1_mini wifi: ssid: !secret esphome_wifi_ssid password: !secret esphome_wifi_password ap: ssid: "$devicename Fallback Hotspot" password: !secret esphome_ap_password ap_timeout: 15s captive_portal: web_server: port: 80 logger: api: password: !secret esphome_api_password ota: password: !secret esphome_ota_password sensor: - platform: wifi_signal name: "$devicename WiFi Signal" update_interval: 60s output: - platform: ac_dimmer id: dimmer gate_pin: D0 zero_cross_pin: number: D1 mode: INPUT inverted: yes light: - platform: monochromatic output: dimmer name: "$long_devicename - Light"
It seems this one is no longer available on AliExpress. Maybe you guys can make a nice alternative 🙂
We are in fact working on that 🙂
