This is IM denrite module (remote wifi network device) created for Interplay Mediumâ„¢ project.

Interplay Medium RGB(W) LED Dendrite


For LEDs be sure to add MOSFETs and current limiting resistors appropriately. Wiring scheme will be added probably later.

ESP8266 Pinout ESP8266 Programming

Preparing the building environment

Make sure that you have the environment installed as described at

  2. esp8266 Arduino SDK

  3. In the make script, change path for each variable approprately: MAKEFILE=.... ESPSDK_ROOT=....

Change your IM AXOD microserver or AP (router) WIFI login and password

create the file vim ../info

assign SSID and PASSWORD of your local IM AXOD microserver or Access Point in there

WIFI_PASS="ssid password"

You can change it later whenewer you want using HTTP interface


initial buildong and flashing firmware at once

./make RGBW_Controller upload

after that you may just build the binary and uload it using remote HTTP interface

./make RGBW_Controller  
curl -F image=@RGBW_Controller.bin -s http://im_<....>.lan/update


By default dendrite can be reached "im_rgb5" doman

Change it with

curl "http://im_rgb5?rename=NEWNAME"

Turn on the color and effect

curl "im_rgb5?rgbw=aadd00&rotate=100"

Other options

curl "http://im_rgb5/help"


This firmware is in progress. Here is a brief list of upcoming changes.
