“The Light Controller is a certified open source hardware development board for controlling 12 V RGB LED strips and reading data from I2C sensors for light, temperature, humidity and gesture detection.”

The board, called ANAVI, can be programmed with the Arduino IDE or Home Assistant, and controlled with MQTT or any modern web browser. Since the project is open source hardware, all KiCad & OpenSCAD hardware design files and open source firmware can be found on AnaviTechnology Github account.

Supported I2C modules include BH1750 light sensor, HTU21D temperature and humidity sensor, and APDS-9960 RGB color and gesture detection sensor. A one meter 12 V RGB LED strip with 30 LEDs is provided in the kits.
