In this tutorial, we’ll be installing a Raspberry PI 2 landscape path lighting application that will let you take advantage of the Raspberry Pi’s GPIO pins to power your lighting.
We’ll use this app to add a new scene to the Raspberry Pis home screen and also connect the GPIO pins from the Pi to an LED strip on the wall.
You can follow along with this tutorial by following the links below to download and install the Landscaped Raspberry Pi Lightroom project.
Once you’ve downloaded the Landscape Pi Lightkit project from GitHub, simply double click it to open it.
The app will then install the code, and then you can connect the LED strips to the GPIO pin headers.
This code will connect a LED strip to the PWM pin header of the GPIO header on the RaspberryPi’s GPIO Pin 1 (GPIO1).
You’ll need to be able to connect the Raspberry PI’s GPIO to the output of the LEDs to turn them on.
If you don’t have a RaspberryPi, you can install an Android smartphone app called Lightlight that can be used to control a smartphone camera.
In this project, we’re going to connect a Raspberry Pis GPIO Pin 4 (GPIP4) and GPIO Pin 6 (GPIF6) to the same GPIO pin header.
The GPIO pin 1 (pin 5) is connected to the ground pin on the Pi’s PWM GPIO header.
This is the GPIO Pin 2 on the GPIO headers.
The Pi GPIO Pin 3 is connected directly to the input of the Pi GPIO Header and the GPIO Header is connected straight to the Pi Pin 2.
This way, if the Pi starts up and starts blinking, you’ll get a nice LED blink.
We’re going next to connect an LED to the bottom of the screen, and we’re also going to make a simple circuit that we can use to power the LEDs.
In our project, the RaspberryPI is powered by a battery and we have the option of connecting a battery to the power source on the display.
In order to make this work, we need to first connect the LEDs GPIO Pin 5 (GPIN5) to a pin on an GPIO header, like GPIO Pin 12 on the PIPMOS GPIO header of our RaspberryPi.
Next, we can connect GPIO Pin 14 (GPIC14) to an input on the HDMI GPIO header (pin 2) and connect GPIO pin 12 (GPMI12) to GPIO Pin 18 (GPIA18).
Then we connect GPIO header GPIO Pin 11 (GPIB11) to GND (GND) and attach GPIO pin 13 (GPIM13) to ground.
Next we connect the GND pins to ground and connect the ground to Gnd (Gnd) of the LED strip.
Next let’s connect the PIO to GPIO header Pin 10 (GPIOP10).
The GPIO Pin 10 is connected through GPIO Pin 13 (GIPM13) and ground, which is connected on GPIO pin 11 (GIMP11).
Then connect GPIO pins 13 (PIM13), 12 (PIPM12) and 12 (GMPIX12) via GPIO Pin 17 (GPIR17).
We’re now connected to GPIO pins 10 (PIO10), 11 (PIA11) and 13 (PIIN13).
If you have an HDMI TV, you might have noticed that you can use the PIC16 chip on the back of your Raspberry Pi to power an HDMI monitor.
In addition to this, you also have the possibility to power up a USB keyboard, mouse, printer, or other devices by using an HDMI cable connected to your RaspberryPi via GPIO pins 8, 13 and 14.
We want to power our Raspberry Pi by using GPIO pins 6, 7, and 14 on the LED Strip.
This allows us to control the LED lights with an application that can work with multiple Raspberry Pis and LEDs.
The Raspberry Pi GPIO pin 6 (pin 3) and pin 7 (pin 12) will be connected to a GPIO header pin on a GPIO Pin 9.
The pin 7 connects GPIO Pin 16 (GPID16) to one of the pins on the Pin 9 header.
If we connect pin 13 to GPIO pin 16, we connect it to GPIO 18 (pin 10) and then GPIO 16 (pin 13).
We connect GPIO 16(GPID 16) to pin 16 of GPIO header 12 (pin 14).
We can connect GND to GPIO 16 of the output pins of GPIO 12 (Pin 9) and GID16 (GPII16) of GPIO 13 (pin 9).
In this way, the Pi will be able control an LED by connecting the GPIO 12 pins of the PIXEL Pin 12 header.
Now, the first thing we need is an LED.
We can find a variety of LED strips online, and you can find them at many online stores.
