New to these chats though I’ve been using SmartThings and several z-wave products successfully in my home as I renovate my little fixer-upper room by room.
I am now trying to finish the remaining electrical components of my kitchen project, and the last thing for me to complete before hanging drywall is figuring out the setup for our under-cabinet lighting.
I’ve installed several smart switches, outlets and dimmers throughout my home, but I haven’t been able to find the resources or guides/plans to copy in terms of using a z-wave dimmer switch, and strip LED lights.
I am specifically looking to use an in-wall dimmer switch, but I don’t believe that standard smart dimmers work with low voltage lights. Do I need a transformer? I don’t need any RGB lights… just going for a standard soft-white light… but again, I’m open to ALL suggestions.
I’ve read dozens of different workarounds or creative ideas that people have done… but I’m struggle to make sense of it all. Any product thoughts? (In-wall dimmer -> transformer -> strip LEDs?)
Any suggestions or criticisms would be welcome at this point in order to help me move along and solve this thing!
