“In this instructable I will be showing you how to turn a standard Ikea Grono lamp into a Wifi-Controlled LED Lamp! The lamp has over 10 different light show modes including a sound reactive mode.
If you have ever been to a goodwill or a local second hand store, you have likely seen an Ikea Grono lamp. For whatever reason, all of the goodwills near me had a ton of these lamps so I decided to see what I could do to make them better. After making these changes, I will definitely not be donating or throwing it away!
I have recently been playing around with NodeMCU Esp8266 microcontrollers which have WiFi capability. They are seriously awesome! This project involves some simple electronics, 3D design/printing, and some programming in C, HTML, and CSS. I haven’t done any HTML/CSS since high school so this was a great project to reintroduce me to these languages.
I tried to make this project simple to follow so you can make your own Ikea Grono WiFi Lamp easily. If you have any questions along the way feel free to ask in the comments below.
