Things used in this project

Hardware components:
Photon new

IKEA Spoka
There are two models. The big on (with blue ears is easier to transform)

SparkFun Wall Adapter Power Supply 5v DC (at least 500mA)
Pay attention to IKEA Spoka DC plug. Two of my 40+ Spokas had a different plug (but still 5 VDC)

SpokaPhoton scriptC/C++
/*

 This template can be used for both Spoka models (the small one and the big one) but there are some differences at HW level

 Small Spoka (with pink ears)
 - There is a push button on its head. The button is connected to 3.3v and to D4 pin. When the button is pressed, D4 goes HIGH
 - There are 9 single color LEDS, with a common anode (i.e they share the same positive input) and connected in 3 groups:
    - group 0 = blue = D1 (when group is turned On, LEDs 1, 4 and 7 will turn On)
    - group 1 = pink = D2 (when group is turned On, LEDs 2, 5 and 8 will turn On)
    - group 2 = orange = D3 (when group is turned On, LEDs 3, 6 and 9 will turn On)
    Obviously, you can mix colors by turning more than one group On at a time

 Big Spoka (with blue ears)
 - There is a push button on its head, identical to the one within Small Spoka. The button is connected to 3.3v and to D4 pin. When the button is pressed, D4 goes HIGH
 - There a 3 bicolor LEDs on this, connected all together. To keep it simple and to have a unified script for both Spoka modesl,
   I decided to create virtual groups
    - group 0 = blue = D2  (when group is turned On, ALL LEDs will turn On in blue)
    - group 1 = green = D3 (when group is turned On, ALL LEDs will turn On in green)
    - group 2 = white-blue = D2 and D3 (when group is turned On, ALL LEDs will turn On in white-blue)
    
 The way to figure out which Spoka model is to probe D5. 
 On Big Spoka, D5 is not connected to anything and has an internal pull-up
 On the Small Spoka, D5 and D6 are physically connected and D6 is set to LOW
 Therefore...  D5 will be HIGH for Big Spoka but LOW for Small Spoka
