Hi Gotchar.

   I'm using power supply from Motorola



The 8.1A would by white (all 3 LEDs On) at maximum brightness, but I don't use that way.

I have these parameters:
Brightness: 10-20
Colors: Rainbow
Pattern: Standard

And there's no problem with power.

I found out that I have a I2C level conversion mode.



I'm going to try it this weekend.

And what about capacitor? Do you use one? It should help (For fast switching effects it's useful).

I've already mentioned it few times: europe.pool.ntp.org

You can use any NTP server, it has noting to do with the arduino code.

The wiring length matters for sure. I'm going to order level converter too.

Fill the NTP server value and press "save and restart" button. ESP should restart and start to communicate with NTP server. If it's not working you're doing something wrong or change something in the code. It's working for 100%.

No this is OK.

Hostname is name of your moodlite as you can in your wifi list. SSID and password is used to connect to your local wifi network (router).

I find it quite bright.  :D I'm using it with brightness between 10 and 20, not more. I like it that way.

Look at timezone lib: https://github.com/JChristensen/Timezone

Part "Coding TimeChangeRules".
Hello.
Can you help.
I just can not deal with ntp.

// Ntp Server
// Time zones
// Eastern European Time (Ukraine, Kiev)
// Eastern European Summer Time
TimeChangeRule uaEest = {'EEST', Last, Sun, Mar, 31, 180};
// Central European Standard Time
TimeChangeRule uaEet = {'EET', Last, Sun, Oct, 27, 120};
Timezone uaEastern (uaEest, uaEet);
TimeChangeRule * tcr;
How to use public ntp server?
And why does one LED remain on when switching off via the interface?

Once you have change  timezones setup in the code and uploaded it to arduino, you need to change NTP server over web interface. Use: europe.pool.ntp.org address for NTP server.

The red LED is "standby" mode. So if you turn off moodlite and see one red LED it means everything is working as it should be.

OK. So I got it flashed successfully. However, I am now having an issue where the only wifi that shows up is "ESP_24EBD2" and the password of "Moodlite" does not work. The serial monitor gives me some information on startup I will paste it below. Also, I didn't change a single thing in the code as the directions said.

Please first of all use eraseEEPROM function to clear EEPROM and than try again.

I think this is "normal" behavior. Look at (Section: Distributing power): https://learn.adafruit.com/adafruit-neopixel-uberguide/powering-neopixels
Maybe adding level converter could help a little bit (It's worth a try).

This is my moodlite:
White:
PS: 600mA, brightness == 10

PS: 600mA, brightness == 120

PS: 1200mA, brightness == 120


Blue:
PS: 600mA, brightness == 10

PS: 600mA, brightness == 120


You can clearly see that it's a power source problem (in my case). If you have power source powerful enough I think it's problem of power distributing (as you stated).
When you use white, all 3 LEDs (in one RGB LED) are turned on at maximum so it consumes a lot of energy. The longer a wire is, the more resistance it has.

I personally don't use white (because of these problems), so I don't care that much.

If you don't have your own domain, use some public NTP server, e.g.: europe.pool.ntp.org (https://www.pool.ntp.org/zone/europe)

Don't forget to change to your time zone:

Code: [Select]
// Ntp Server
// Time zones
// Central European Time (Frankfurt, Paris)
// Central European Summer Time
TimeChangeRule tchrCest = { "CEST", Last, Sun, Mar, 2, 120 };
// Central European Standard Time
TimeChangeRule tchrCet = { "CET", Last, Sun, Oct, 3, 60 };
Timezone tzCe(tchrCest, tchrCet);
TimeChangeRule *tcr;

Finally.

It looks like you're missing timer libraries?

MQTT data is stored only by pressing "save and restart" button.  So if you cleared eeprom, there shouldn't be any data.

Just to be sure, have you cleared EEPROM by uncommenting eraseEEPROM function?
