I was hoping to get advice on my first lighting project. My kitchen has existing under cabinet lighting, 12 volt halogen or xenon bulbs, which appear to be just tact directly into a cord. (It looks like a lamp cord -See picture).
My hope is to convert to dimable LED strips (cool white required but color also would be a bonus). I want to be able to control it both at the switches (3 pole) but also via smarttgings hub (CoRE installed) and my phone or Google home.
I have read countless posts and websites but there are so many configurations and options I’m overwhelmed trying to figure out what will work best for me.
I have 5 separate sections of cabinets with a total of 15 feet of lighting. The existing wiring goes into the wall at the top of our backsplash and is connected in the attic. We are in the process of pulling and replacing our backsplash so I thought this might be a good time to do the lighting if I have to re-do the wiring.
I would appreciate any advice on the project or recommendations on products:
