PhoneyTV for Vera with Arduino (FakeTV) Spark Core
« on: May 02, 2014, 08:19:40 am »
I'm copying over some of my post at MySensors in case some of you are interested in making a really quick, fun and inexpensive project for Arduino and Vera Home Automation.

DeltaNu1142 had a good idea to build off of the FakeTV product and enable it for Home Automation.  Basically this project builds a device that is intended reproduce the seemingly random ambient light of a television.  This may provide increased security by making the house appear occupied and hopefully detracting would-be burglars whilst you are away. 

Build it, set it in a room and project it against the ceiling, walls or even onto a translucent window covering for the perfect effect.  Set a scene, use a PLEG schedule or Vacation Ghost to have it come on at different times during the evening adding an even more realistic occupancy effect.

I have attached a few photos of my build.  The sketch, wiring diagrams (so simple) and other information can be found at the link above...

Added a pushbutton ON/OFF and updated sketch at MySensors.org.

I have been developing with Spark Core for a couple of weeks and ported this over...

I thought I would share the code if anyone was working with Spark... No Arduino needed, no gateway needed, just a Spark Core, a few ultrabright LEDs (a few transistors) and a board to solder it up... If anyone is interested I can share the revised schematic for the 3V3 output of Spark.

Here is the code and the library is on GitHub https://github.com/BulldogLowell/Sunrise :

 * PhoneyTV_Spark V1.0
 * 8-FEB-2014
 * by Jim Brower  >> BulldogLowell@gmail.com
 *
 * PhoneyTV_Spark illuminates 6 sets of LED's in a random fashion as to mimic the
 * ambient light emanating from a television.  It is intended to make an empty
 * home (or an empty section of a home) appear to be occupied by someone watching
 * TV.  As an alternative to a real television, this uses a tiny fraction of the
 * electrical energy.
 *
 * You can adjust the length of the blink interval and its "twitchyness" by
 * modifying the random number generators, if you prefer more/less 'motion' in
 * in your unit.
 *
 * Takes advantage of available PWM using the wht/blu LEDs to allow
 * fluctuations in the intensity of the light, enhancing the PhoneyTV's
 * realistic ambient light effect.
 *
 * Originally Created 12-APR-2014
 * http://forum.mysensors.org/topic/85/phoneytv-for-vera-is-here/3
 *
 * To set the time and mode:
 * curl -k https://api.spark.io/v1/devices/<yourSparkID>/phoneyTV  -d access_token=<yourAccessToken> -d params=solarMode=<MODE 0/1>#onTime=<float_decimal_time>#offset=<float_decimal_time>#offTime=<float_decimal_time>?
 *
 * for time, enter 8:15pm like this: 20.25  (eight and one-quarter hours pm)
 *
 * To turn on/off
 * curl -k https://api.spark.io/v1/devices/<yourSparkID>/phoneyPower -d access_token=<yourAccessToken> -d params=1
