I made a AU$5.50 physical switch for my LIFX bulbs

4-button RF remote - AU$3.50
RF receiver/decoder - AU$2.00
Raspberry Pi - free (everyone has one of these lying around right?)

Result: https://youtu.be/9458-3IiG3Y

Instructions: https://www.liwen.id.au/rf-dimmer-control/

Current version can switch lights on/off and activate scenes.

I’m working on a version that can have different functions for single click, double click, long click, etc, and can incrementally fade lights up and down, similar to how the Phillips Hue dimmer switch works.

Feedback/comments welcome!

Love it! Great work! … your guide could also be used for many other non-LIFX home automation tasks!
