Philips LivingColors hack to drive external LED strip
« on: June 10, 2015, 01:58:17 pm »
Hi guys,

recently I got an Philips LivingColors lamp. I wasn’t too happy with its brightness so I decided to do small hardware modification. I added few N-channel transistors to the LED drivers and connected an RGB LED strip. The effect was soo good that I decided to write a post about the moddification. The single lamp with a strip was able to light up the complete room. The control of the lamp is done via a Philips remote control.

Here is the full article how to modify Philips LivingColors lamp with schematic:

Here is the YouTube movie:

Please let me know what you think about it. Maybe some other stuff can be driven by this 'magic' lamp?:P

Best regards,
