A multi-color LED strip, cheap and can by buyed by Action in NL.
You can flash this with tuya-convert2 and control it by Home Assistant via MQTT.


  • Use a raspberry and instructions here: https://github.com/kueblc/tuya-convert
  • Clone tuya-convert
  • Start flashing by ./start-flash.sh
  • Connect vt-trust network
  • Set LED Strip in pairing mode by plug/unplug power 3 times, LED Strip will flash continously
  • Firmware will be downloaded to raspberry as a backup
  • Flash by using: curl (This will flash Sonoff Basic to the LED Strip controller)
  • LED Strip will reboot


  • Connect tot the LED-Strip with the newly wifi network: sonoff-xx and configure your own WIFI settings, save
  • After reboot, check your router to identify the new IP-address
  • Browse, on youre own network to the Tasmota web interface
  • Go to Configuration \ Configure Other
  • Fill in the following template: {"NAME":"LSC-RGBW-Strip","GPIO":[51,0,0,0,37,0,0,0,38,40,39,0,0],"FLAG":0,"BASE":18}
  • Choose Activate, MQTT Enable, fill in a Web Admin password
  • Save, reboot
  • After reboot goto console en give in:
    • SetOption17 1 – This enables decimal colors
    • SetOption59 1 – This enables sending of tele//STATE on POWER and light related commands
  • Go to Configuration \ MQTT and configure your MQTT Server settings

Home Assistant
