Let me explain.
The Phillips power supply is stupid. Why? because the plug that goes in the socket is attached into the power adaptor, rather than coming from a lead. I need a lead because I don’t have a power socket, but a junction box. The idea would be to cut the power plug away a wire the lead into the junction box.
On top of that, I would like to have something that is pretty low profile and that can be elegantly mounted on the cupboard away from view, rather than having to to tape some stupid power brick like these ones. The power adaptor I linked in the original post seems to be perfect for such purpose.
As far as I can tell from browsing Amazon and the HUE website, Philips in all their might only sell their controller with their asinine power adaptor and 2 metre of LED stripe.
What I need is TWO SETS (one for each side of the kitchen) of:
- 1m of LED stripe;
- a discrete power adaptor that have leads at both ends, like I explained above; and
- a Zigbee controller.
Honestly it puzzles me how Phillips can be so short-sighted not to sell items individually, and for not having alternative power supplies.
Going back to the power supply I listed in the original post, they have other models with different power output. Would you say some of the options there would work for the Gledopto and the Phillips 1 metre LED stripe?
