Unboxing the strip and controller

I received the complete set: controller, strip and 3 connectors for 90 degree corners.

Supplying 5V DC with a USB power adapter (2 Amp), the lights went on.

Added to SmartThings as a Thing and changed the DTH to homemade Zigbee RGBW 2000-65000K driver.

Then came the surprise :astonished: : one of the color leds fails to be Red. Time for a warranty claim to Official Gledopto Store in AliExpress.

I received a new led strip from Gledopto, warranty.

The driver that is found automatically when adding the controller is the Zigbee RGBW. With that driver the range for the Warmwhite-Coolwhite = 2700-65000K.

At the lowest level, 2700K, both leds (CW + WW) are on. That makes it impossible to get warmwhite only. I changed the driver to a modified one, 2000-65000K and the Warmwhite leds only are on below 2050K.

I hope SmartThings support will improve this, the lower level, from 2700K to 2000K. Not only for Gledopto devices, but also for other bulbs and drivers where needed.
