This is a just a small box for a IR-Led-Kit that I use to illuminate the bed when our baby is asleep. I use this together with the Cell-phone holder thing to be able to see our child when it's dark in the room. :)


Print parts, file a little bit to get a snug fit on the parts, place the electronics inside, push together and use. :)
I used this Infrared spotlight kit: http://www.kemo-electronic.de/en/Light-Sound/Infrared/Kits/B223-Infrared-spotlight.php
Then a small switch for on/off and a 3,5mm mono connector to get the 12v power in.
I had to file a bit on the circuit board to get the parts to fit because I didn't want to print out the box again. :) But you can just make the box a little bigger before you print.

Please remove those IR LEDs as soon as possible, they are really harmful in close range for human eye specially for kids. Kids under 10 have wider pupils in compare to adults because their iris muscles are not fully developed yet. If you don't see above 700nm does not necessarily mean that LEDs right above your head won't harm your eyes for long term use, even when they are closed.

Those LED also generate heat, not just electrical heat but also infrared heat, that can set the bed on fire. Yours looks around 4 watts that I don't think it would catch fire but still looks like a slow cooker. Just remove it from the bed and put it on the wall somewhere indirectly lighting up the bed.

Don't worry, I didn't actually ever use it as intended here. I read up a bit on the IR-light and removed the holder from the bed before the baby was even in it. :)

Nice design, but i would rethink the application...


Its probably a big deal, but I'm the paranoid type....

Oh... I did not know that. Thank you for the information. Better safe then sorry. :)
