I'm relatively new to the RaspberryPi community and don't have too much experience with programming, etc in general.
However my first project is rather ambitious and I was hoping for the input of you experts, your general experience with Dali and if there are ready made solutions or if i have to start from scratch.
I have around 25 Dali Lamps which i want to control individually and in groups with for example EnOcean buttons or others. A Webbrowser-Site or App to control the lamps is ok too.
For Example with 1 button i want to activate lamp 1 to 80% light, with button 2 I want to activate lamp 2 to 60% and lamp 1 to 40% and lamp 3 to 90%, with button 3 i want to activate lamps 1 to 25, with button 4 I want to activate lamp 4 to 100% and lamp 2 to 60%....etc.... you catch my drift.
Additionally all of the lamps or different groups of them should turn off if a light sensor detects a certain amount of light. I'm also thinking about having a proximity sensor per lamp installed, all the sensors should be Dali enabled for this.
So there are some very expensive software solutions out there but I think it should also be able to achieve with a RaspberryPi.
I was hoping that Kunbus would be finished with his RevPi Controller with Dali, but he says he has some issues buying/getting the Dali License. He estimates he will be able to ship by end of the year, which is sadly too late for me (https://revolution.kunbus.com/gateways/
So I was hoping you guys might give me some good ideas i could research on?
If my Raspberry is the controller, than I need a DALI readable Interface/OS and a module which has Dali Entrances for all the lamps and sensors.
Thankyou for your help!
