Reverse Engineering a RGB LED Bulb

 

If you have ever wondered how one of those RGB LED light bulbs work have a look at the article that has put together. By monitoring the IR LED of the remote he was able to snif the IR remote codes for the functions. Once he knew the IR codes he used an Arduino to run through all of the byte sequences but unfortunately there were no easter eggs IR codes in the bulb. Since one side of this bulb has line voltage you must be very cautious when hacking it. Chr demonstrates how he works around this danger.
