Recently moved into an apartment that didn't have any lights on the balcony. Installed some LED strips and tapped on my previous solar-tracking project to light up the balcony, but the batteries were draining too fast. So recreated a standalone setup with a number of smaller solar panels that fit exactly the width of the balcony railing, an Arduino Nano, a light sensor (when to switch ON/OFF) & a PIR sensor (when to brighten up when motion is detected and dim down to a base level when no motion is detected).
Sensor-Controlled Guard Lights
Customised solar-powered & sensor-controlled guard lights to brighten up my apartment balcony that somehow does not have any lights fitted.
