Need simple relay mod

I don’t know if these usermods are what I think they are (like plugins for firefox for extended functionality) but I could use a simple ON/OFF switch on the WLED frontend for 1 or more relays.

I installing the LED strip next to a regular 230V top ceiling light and I would like to control both from the WLED frontend.

Did anyone do something like this before?

In Arduino IDE it’s an easy job but I wouldn’t get into the WLEDs source code trying to figure it out how to modify it…


There is a new usermod for this now in the @blazoncek branch.

Serge usually has recent bins so you can just download them.

As of right now relay mod is very impressive :wink:

Hard resetting via RTS pin...

After that it does nothing no AP, does not connect, I tried factory reset before as well. Original WLED image reflashing works any time.

Also if I get this mod working will that add a turn on relay button to the phoneapp as well or only the webpage accessible through the browser??

Re-download, perhaps you have a corrupted file, or build yourself using VSC+PIO.

@srg74 I uploaded the multirelay bin found in the link that @tonyno referenced above. I set the relay0 pin in the usermod section of the wled interface and also set a relay0 physical button pin, this is all good but is there no digital button on the WLED interface to toggle the new relays? My use case is I have leds on a drone that work great but I want to have a bright white headlight that I can toggle on and off wirelessly with the same controller, I was hoping this usermod would be my solution to use either a relay or a mosfet to toggle a separate led but if there’s not digital button…

There is a GUI button if you check “external button” and it will appear at “info” menu.

Click on the info button in the main screen. :grin:

Uhm button for what?
Maybe I misunderstand what this mod is supposed to do, if I mark the external it will just show number of relays 1 plain text on the info page thats all.

What I would’ve need is an easy turn on and off for 1 relay separately from the whole WLED functionality like with a big ON/OFF button what you have in the Android WLED app where you add the nodes.

I just decided to do this setup with an Arduino + INFRA receiver its just way more practical to turn on my light then find and unlock my phone, start the app …

relay has to be marked external in usermod settings and a button has to be selected (for HW button support).
unfortunately there will not be a big red button in wled UI since this is a usermod
you will get a button for each relay in Info dialogue once relay is marked external.
