Introducing ANAVI Light Controller

After a lot of hard work and several hardware revisions, I am proud to announce the official launch of my new hobby project ANAVI Light Controller.

ANAVI Light Controller is a certified open source hardware WiFi device for controlling a 12 V RGB LED strip. It also supports sensors for light, temperature, humidity, and gesture recognition.

The core of ANAVI Light Controller is ESP8266 and the firmware has been written as an Arduino sketch. The firmware, the software, as well as the hardware schematics and KiCAD project are all available at GitHub. ANAVI Light Controller is fully compliant with the popular open source platform, Home Assistant. That means that when paired with Amazon Alexa, the device can be turned on and off with voice commands.

For almost a year I have been spending a lot of my spare time on this hobby project and now am I running a modest crowdfunding campaign at Crowd Supply to fund mass production. The launch of the campaign was deferred so we could make improvements to the hardware based on user feedback on our prototypes. Following recommendations from the community, the ESP8266 module was rotated 90 degrees from its previous position. Now the antenna provides better quality and strength of the WiFi signal. Revision 1.3 of ANAVI Light Controller has already been certified by the Open Source Hardware Association with UID BG000005.
