Beginner how to to making an led change through iphone app?
« on: April 11, 2017, 12:35:32 PM »
Im a pretty new to arduino and totally new to rfduino.

I want to make a simple project. I have a multicolor led and want to control it with my iphone.

Where do I start? I'm having trouble finding a sketch thats so simple. Everything seems to include drivers for more complex things that are above my level. Once I have the arduino set up I can make it better , but have no idea where to start.

What would be an example sketch?
Whats the app called that would work?
Is the app specific to the sketch or is there a generic I could use?

Do you have a RFduino or Simblee?
You mention RFduino, but you are asking in the Simblee section.

What kind of multicolor LED? The digital neopixel type like WS2812 are complicated. I won't explain this.

Or, the simple 3 separate LEDs in one package type like what comes with the RFD22122 RGB/Button Shield.

For these...
For RFduino there is...
There is an example sketch for this under File->Examples->RFduinoBLE->ColorWheel
And there was a iPhone called the ColorWheel for this.

For the Simblee the same iPhone APP should work. But, I forget if there was an issue with it.
There is an example sketch for this under File->Examples->SimbleBLE->ColorWheel

However, for the Simblee the better approach is to use Simblee For Mobile instead, then you can use iPhone or Android.
