Yeah, ideally I want the RGBW Fibaro Micro Controller for each zone (toe kick, under cabinet and up light) but that would mean I need 8 of them if I want to include island and butlers pantry. I’m having a hard time stomaching that after all the other HA stuff, its definitely a disease, but we’ll see what tomorrow brings. I went in knowing I probably wasn’t going to have physical wall switches for them, as there would be way to many of them and I was comfortable fully automated through other switches, motion detector or ultrasonic occupancy sensor. Let me know what you end up with, I have some LED strips in our pantry right now and I’m concerned they won’t be bright enough for under cabinet task lighting. I should have just done the ready to mount GFCI strips. The metal commercial Legrand strips I used were disassemble, cut to length and then painted to match (way more work than I expected).
As for the outlets, we removed, capped lines with wire nuts and electric tape, and then duct taped right over the holes. Worked perfect, outlets were perpendicular to the 2x4 tile so each one had drywall support. Of course depending on what tile size you end up with, additional support may be needed. Doesn’t need to be pretty, just flat.
