I am planning to install some under cabinet and under plinth lighting in my kitchen. I am looking for ways to do this. Colour lights are good, but not a priority for me. I mostly use 6500K lighting during day and 3500K in the evenings.
Below are some of the ideas I am considering.
- Osram lightify strips. Currently I can get 4M with 2 adapters for £85. Can do RGBW and will integrate with ST.
- FLS-PP ballast with 5M RGBWW light strips. My understanding is that this can only do either warm or cold white. I wont be able to switch between the two. This will cost me about £65
- Fibaro RGBW controller with 5M RGBWW light strips. My understanding is that this can only do either warm or cold white. I wont be able to switch between the two. This will cost me about £60.
- The last option I am considering is to get 5M Cold White and 5M Warm white strips along with the relevant power adapters to control them. Install a Sonoff Switch to each of the power adapters so they can be turned on and off from ST. This setup will be the brightest as I will be using 2 seperate strips for Warm white and cold white. This will be the cheapest with total expense around £30, but no colour.
Below is the shopping list.
Any ideas on what are the pros and cons of above approaches? or there are other alternatives?
