moodlite Software / IFTTT/ Google Home Integration?
« on: February 26, 2019, 03:04:42 PM »
Someone here mentioned before that they setup IFTTT integration so they could change the patterns, and presumably turn it on/off with voice commands via Google home.

Is there any more info/guide available? I got my 20 tiles wall mounted finally and everything is working great, but I'd like to work on that as my next step :)

moodlite Software / Re: Flashed sketch, web interface wont save SSID/Pass?

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).

Weird, I would think hostname would end up just being what the device hostname is on my network instead of what the broadcast network is.

Is there a way I can stop it from broadcasting entirely? Can I just clear out the hostname field in full?

Are you sure it's not showing an old SSID ?  Have you tried connecting to it.

I did some more testing and something strange is still happening.

The "hostname" I set on the WiFi page ends up being turned into the SSID it broadcasts instead of being the hostname on my local network?

Very weird.

More attachments for clarification.

Can anyone tell me where the erase eeprom function is? Canít seam to find it and I think thatís what I need to do. Looked through the sketch and canít locate it :(

Just Ctrl+F for find and type in "erase" you'll find it there. there's 2 options, one for the eeprom and one for the spiffs, after you erase it, be sure to re-flash it again with it commented back out so it doesn't erase the 2nd time.

Yep! It's both connected to my home WiFi, and still serving its own WiFi and serving the page on both the internal IP and

See attachments.

can you post the text on your debug window?

If it's creating the access point moodlite then it's failed to connect to your home wifi. Double check the settings you have added.

Weird though, I can connect to it from my home WiFi just fine, I see it in my WiFi controller and it has an IP address on my network which loads the web server.

moodlite Software / Re: LED's just blinking at random very fast?

So I did get this fixed incase it helps anyone in the future.

I had wired up my power adapter straight into the leads but was still powering my Adruino via USB, for some reason this was causing issues like interference on the data line to the LEDs.

I was able to get it working by powering everything off of USB, and once I knew that was good I soldered it in fully as shown in the wiring diagram and that seemed to work and now I can actually see/use the patterns effectively.

Did you set to erase eeprom etc.. but not commented it back out once done?  I did this and wondered why it wasn't saving any details.

Nope, but for good measure I just re-flashed everything.

I ereased eeprom and spiff and then re-commented both of those out, flashed again, setup and got it to connect to my home wifi, but the "Moodlite" SSID is still broadcasting with a password of Moodlite.

I completed flashing the NodeMCU board, and also completed one single tile all wired up (Just don't have female servo lead attached and ran around back.

Right now I can see changing patterns/colors seem to kind of make a difference, but for the most part everything just flashes at random extremely fast with no rhyme or reason for this.

I bought the components linked in the creator's build log except I got a different power supply since that one was sold out, matched his specs though! so I'm not sure what would be different here.

I did go in and set 1 LED per corner already and 3 LEDs total since I only have one panel done, but I'm having a hard time figuring out what anything else is supposed to do since it does'nt seem to really affect much, every now and then it stops and restarts the blinking cycle?

I keep getting deeper into this on my own. I turned static IP off and re-flashed, but now I'm seeing that it's still hosting it's own SSID of "moodlite" and also connected to my WiFi - is this normal? If not how can I fix it so it stops broadcasting it's own SSID? I'd like to get rid of that, I don't want someone else connecting to it.

moodlite Software / Flashed sketch, web interface wont save SSID/Pass?
« on: January 30, 2019, 02:31:08 AM »
Hi all, I got the sketch flashed, and for some reason it seems the info in the documentation is wrong, for some reason I can only find the web interface at instead, so I go there, enter my home SSID, pass, and give it a hostname of "Moodlite" but when I hit submit I just get taken to and it says the site cannot be reached.

The moment I hit the "Set" button I see the NodeMCU board have a blue flash (as if it's resetting?) but it never saves my WiFi information and just seems to reboot and still serve the Moodlite SSID and web server on

Any help is appreciated!

Perfect, thank you! I'll use that. I didn't check the github wiki, I was looking for everything here on this site! whoops!

moodlite Software / Guide to flashing from start to finish? (v2.0)
« on: January 29, 2019, 08:50:06 PM »
I'm a total arduino noob, I've got the IDE installed but would love if someone could point me into the right direction for a full start-to-finish guide.

I seem to have a good grasp on the wiring, and would like to work on this tonight if possible for flashing the NodMCU board and fire up my first actual lite.

Thanks in advance!
