Above Ground Solar Pool Lighting from SmartThings Shield


(Rob Petersen) #1

Hello all,
I had an idea to create a submersible LED housing for my above ground pool. The LED system would run off of SmartThings Shield with Arduino. I would also like to use rechargeable batteries from solar. Has anyone explored this before? I’m new to this and could use any help. Thanks!

I have 3 very similar to these but “waterproof”:

They were sold as inductive charging, alas they lied. now down to 2. Don’t know if I see the “smarts” as being necessary. RF would be fine to change the colors manually. Have to recharge anyway so auto timers kinda don’t make sense.

Good luck i’m interested.
