OK, I’m going to setup 5 to 6ft light strips down each side of our bed and want to control it with a Fibaro RGBW (since all this seems cheaper than Hue lightstrips). I’m a little confused at all the parts I might need. So, I’m looking for suggestions / additions to my list below (in case I’m missing something) besides the Fibaro.
Light Strips - although open to suggestions for any others as well. I don’t really need waterproof because it is a bedroom.
It looks like it comes with a power supply, which I have questions later about.
I need a wire to get from one side of the bed to another.
I assume I cut at the specific points on the strip and use the above wide between them.
So, three questions:
- Am I missing any parts?
- I assume I need to cut the power cable and splice the two wires into the Fibaro power in?
- It looks like it has a lead to connect the Fibaro to the strip. If it doesn’t, would I need the following?
I’m pretty comfortable with doing this (don’t mind, I’ve just never done it before. I figured the bed was a good first try since it is well hidden.
