Dimming meanwell drivers with Raspberry Pi

Mon Sep 23, 2019 8:53 pm

Hi,

I'm a noob, never used raspberry pi before, but I'm a programmer and I'm good at self-learning.

I currently have a LED light setup with 9 qb288v2 quantum boards powered by three Meanwell drivers (HLG-240H-C2100B)

I would like to be able to turn on/off the lights using the rasp pi, and also dim the lights. Eventually, I would also like to use a humidity sensor and temp sensor to turn on/off the fans when a certain humidity threshold is hit.

So where do I start? What do I buy?
Any helpful links/advice would be greatly appreciated!

Mycodo is an automated monitoring and regulation system that was built to run on the Raspberry Pi (versions Zero, 1, 2, 3, and 4).

Originally designed to cultivate edible mushrooms, Mycodo has grown to include the ability to do much more, including cultivating plants, culturing microorganisms, maintaining honey bee apiary homeostasis, incubating animals and eggs, maintaining aquatic systems, aging cheeses, fermenting foods and tobacco, cooking food (sous-vide), and more.

The system comprises a backend (daemon) and a frontend (user interface). The backend conducts measurements from sensors and devices, then coordinate a diverse set of responses to those measurements, including the ability to modulate outputs (relays, PWM, wireless outlets), regulate environmental conditions with electrical devices under PID control (steady regulation or changing over time), schedule timers, capture photos and stream video, trigger actions when measurements meet certain conditions (modulate relays, execute commands, notify by email, etc.), and more. The frontend is a web interface that enables easy navigation and configuration from any browser-enabled device.

If you post on this forum I'm sure someone will give you a hand.

Posting a couple of links without any explanation looks more like spam than anything else...
Can you explain how this helps the OP?
Does it support the hardware and functions that OP mentions?
