A DIY Arduino network controllable RGB lamp made from scanner parts!


This project is about reusing the wasted RGB LED part and making it remote RGB Lamp. Through web page, they turn on/off the lamp & change its color. The Ethernet Shield is used for Ethernet connection and TCP/IP processing.


This is something we have really been meaning to write up. A few weeks ago we ripped out an RGB LED from an old Canon Scanner that was laying around and going to waste. Since then we’ve been playing around with the RGB LED element and decided to put it to good use.

We have come up with LANp – This is an Arduino and Ethernet Shield that controls an RGB LED colour real-time with a Javascript colour picker.

Take a look below for the YouTube video of this working at the bottom of the page!

What’s in it?

  • 1x Arduino
  • 1x Arduino Ethernet/SD Shield (WIZnet W5100 is embedded)
  • 1x Micro-SDHC Card
  • 1x Scanner LED RGB
  • Various jumper wires

This webserver code is based on our previous article, located just here which shows how to set up an SD Card based web server and serve files over a network, with support for AJAX requests…
