Might be nice to have these change colour when the space is open. Ideally low power and MQTT controllable.


12v Light Strips and controllers

Can maybe use the same setup as Projects:HackyLEDS, which already works with the current home assistant config. These are 12v light strips hooked up to a DIY power FET parent variboard that mates with an ESP8266 flashed with MQTT-over-wifi Micropython.

Alternatively, we have successfully used the H801 LED Strip Light Lamp WiFi Controllers with our MQTT HASS setup.
