HowTo: Node Red / Tasmota – Build an Instagram(*) Icon Lamp

In the article NodeRed/Tasmota - Building a Facebook Icon Lamp, I described why, in my opinion, a Facebook lamp is a useful thing if you want to be sure about Facebook notifications.

Unfortunately, thank God, the social media online world is no longer just Facebook. In addition to Whatsapp, Twitter you also want to be notified via Instagram(*) – notifications. So it's only logical to have this done via an Instagram(*) lamp.

How to do it and what you have to consider is described in the following article.

Safety instructions

I know the following hints are always a bit annoying and seem unnecessary. But unfortunately, many people who knew it "better" from carelessness lost their eyes, fingers or other things or hurt themselves. In comparison, a loss of data is almost not worth mentioning, but even these can be really annoying. Therefore, please take five minutes to read the safety instructions. Even the coolest project is worth no injury or other annoyance.

Required tools:

In the following list you will find all the parts you need to implement this article.

Collect required parts

In the following picture you can see the parts needed to build your own Instagram(*) lamp.

You can see the case of the Instagram(*) lamp, the ESP8266 adapter board (a WEMOS D1 Mini), two WS2812B LED strips with 26 and 9 LEDs and about 15cm 3-wire cable. Not to be seen are the two strips of paper, which are needed later to cover the LED strip.

Circuit diagram

Here you will find the schematics that specify how the lamp is basically constructed.

Fritzing view.

Prepare the small LED strip

The smaller of the two LED strips with nine LEDs is responsible for illuminating the "camera lens" of the Instagram(*) icon from the inside. To do this, the connection cable must first be prepared.

Cut to approx. 9cm long piece of the 3-core wire.
Strip now the ends of the individual wires about 5mm and …
… tin them with some solder.
To be able to solder the cable to the first LED strip later, it must first be prepared. If not already done, disconnect a nine LED's long LED strip. Then you have to look for the end of the LED strip with a small black arrow pointing away from the end. This arrow indicates the control signal input for the LEDs.
At this end you tin now the contact pads of the LED strip as it can be seen in the picture.
Then you can solder the prepared cable to the LED strip. Make sure that you use the red wire for the contact "+ 5V", the green wire for the contact "Din" and the white wire for the contact "GND". So it will be easier for you later to assign the leads to the correct contacts.

Glue the LED strips into the housing

The prepared LED strip can now be glued into the "camera lens" of your Instagram (*) lamp.

To do this you first push the cable of the LED strip as shown …
… through the hole in the “camera lens”.
Before you fumble the LED strip in the "camera lens", you must remove the protective film of the adhesive strip on the back of the LED strip.
Have you fumbled the LED strip in the "camera lens", it is now time to check whether this is aligned everywhere centered and ...
… fits well.
Have you checked everything you can fix the LED strip now with some hot glue. Also fix the ends of the LED strip – as shown – with some hot glue.
Then you can fix the LED strip at two other places.
You can now pull the wires that does look out the back …
… through the hole underneath the socket of your Instagram(*) – lamp.
There you can leave it that way for the first time. Because next, the large LED strip is first glued into the frame.

Attach the second LED strip

In order to be able to glue the second LED strip into the frame, it must first of all be prepared in the same way as the first LED strip.

Take the remaining approx. 6cm long piece of your 3-wire cable …
… and strip the ends about 5mm.
So these stripped ends you tin now with some solder.
As with the first LED strip, place the second LED strip (with 26 LEDs) in front of you so that the black arrow points away from you.
At this end you tinned the contact pads again with some solder.
The tin-plated contact pads can now easily be soldered to the tin-plated wire ends. Make sure again that you use the red wire for the contact "+ 5V", the green wire for the contact "Din" and the white wire for the contact "GND". So it will be easier for you to assign the leads to the correct contacts.
The ready-made LED strip can now be inserted into the frame of your Instagram(*) lamp. Remove the protective foil on the back of the LED strip and stick it – at first provisionally as shown in the frame of your Instagram(*) – lamp.

Now you can also connect the lead of the short LED strip with the long LED strip. Make sure again that you connect the red wire with the contact "+ 5V", the green wire with the contact "DO" and the white wire with the contact "GND".
Now you can finally fix this LED strip with some hot glue.
Make sure that you attach the LED strip sufficiently, especially in the corners of the frame.

Connect the ESP8266 adapter board to the LED strips

The LED strips are now prepared. In order for these to light up and be controlled in general, you also need an ESP8266 adapter board to control the LED strips. In this case a "WEMOS D1 Mini" will be used.

It is also recommended to deactivate the LED of the ESP8266 adapter board at this point. This is described in article ESP8266 - Remove/Disable LED.

Prepare the ESP8266 adapter board again by …

… tinning the contacts “D4”. "G" and "5V" with some solder as shown.
Now you can connect the adapter board to the LED strip by …
… soldering the wire as shown. The red wire must be connected with the contact "5V", the green wire with the contact "GND" and the white wire with the contact "D4" of the adapter board.

Attach ESP8266 adapter board

In order for the adapter board to disappear invisibly in the base of the lamp, this must be accommodated in the socket.

Glue the adapter board into the socket of your Instagram(*) – Lamp as shown.
Pay special attention to the fact that no short circuits (= connections) occur at the contacts of the soldered line.
If you have worked through all the steps to this point, your Instagram(*) – Lamp should now look something like this.

Stick paper covers on

Your Instagram(*) lamp is almost done. The only thing that disturbs the look a bit is that you can see the "naked" LED strips directly.

In order to hide these, three strips of paper are now made. Two of them with the dimensions 30x210mm and one of them with the dimensions 30x135mm. These are then glued into the frame. These strips of paper are actually universal labels, meaning one side is coated with glue so you can easily glue the paper strips into the lamp.

The easiest way to cut the paper strips is to use a cutting plotter. If you do not have access to it, it will do a pair of scissors or a sharp knife and ruler. Then make sure that you do not damage the surface on which you work with the knife.
Then glue the short strip of paper into the "camera lens" of your Instagram(*) lamp first. Remember to remove the protective layer on the back before sticking. Also, make sure the paper strip is flush with the front edge and neatly pressed all over.
Closeup of the paper strip pasted into the "camera lens" of your Instagram(*) lamp.
Now you can also glue the remaining paper strips into the frame. Start with the top one best. Check again that the paper strip is properly pressed everywhere.
The second paper strip is then glued in the same way in the lower area of the frame.
If you have pasted all paper strips in your Instagram (*) – lamp, the whole thing should look something like this.

Before starting up, you should now follow the tips from the article Electronics—Commissioning a new circuit.

Flash Tasmota firmware

Now it's time to transfer the Tasmota firmware to the lamp. Program the Tasmota firmware to the ESP8266 adapter board. How to do this is explained in the article Tasmota-Firmware flashing.

Following is a configuration like I used for my Instagram(*) lamp. Of course, you have to configure the access data for your Wi-Fi and, if necessary, the access data for your MQTT server.

Configure Tasmota firmware

So that the freshly programmed but still unconfigured firmware of the lamp also works correctly, now must be set where the LED strip is connected to the ESP8266 adapter board.

Enter the IP address of your Instagram(*) – lamp in the address bar of your browser and wait until you are greeted by the start page of the Tasmota firmware. How to find out the IP address of your devices in the network can be found in the article IP address of the devices in the network.
There you click on “Settings” …
… and on “configure device”.
In the drop-down list of the GPIO02 or "D4" you now set "07 WS2812", which tells the Tasmota firmware that a WS2812 LED strip is now connected to the GPIO02.
If you have the configuration as shown, click on "Save".
The firmware is then restarted and should be available again after about one minute.
After the restart, you can then turn the lamp on and off the surface.

Control of the lamp

How you can then control the lamp – to adjust, among other things, the appropriate Instagram(*) – colors – is described in the following article NodeRed – Instagram lamp.

If everything went well then your Instagram(*) – lamp should look like this.

Have fun with the project

I hope everything worked as described. If not or you have any other questions or suggestions, please let me know in the comments. Also, ideas for new projects are always welcome. 🙂

P.S. Many of these projects - especially the hardware projects - cost a lot of time and money. Of course I do this because I enjoy it, but if you appreciate that I share this information with you, I would be happy about a small donation to the coffee box. 🙂
