Fix downlighting on DoES tower #1168
Currently it's got an Arduino Uno with a WiFi shield, and uses the code at https://github.com/brett-lempereur/beaconbot
That expects there to be a companion Raspberry Pi, which monitors twitter to respond to mentions of @DoESTower, and set the colours plus can take a photo with camera connected to the Pi and reply to whoever asks for a new colour with a photo showing it updated.
It might make sense to have it respond to the #cheerlights hashtag instead? Then we wouldn't need to have a Pi (that we haven't taken along with the tower to any events for a while now...). There's an MQTT feed for #cheerlights (I don't know how many colours that supports, or if there's a different one that copes with all the CSS colours...)
(If we switched to an ESP8266, then we could add https://github.com/tzapu/WiFiManager to let us configure new WiFi networks more easily when it's out at events)
