I'm considering performing an install with this type of LED strip. I'm assuming (but haven't seen any definitive statement in this board) that any RGB/W capable DC controller can work with them and that you're simply using only 3 wires. I do have a few questions though:
- how is the color temp controlling handled in Hubitat? Do you just make it a RGB/w device or is there a specific driver for color temp only control? (sorry I don't have my hubitat w/ me)
- If there is no issue, does the community like this combo controller/driver?
- Do you hook up the 3 leads to V+/W-/R-? Or would I jump the RGB posts together for the third wire? Couldn't see any diagram to perform a CCT install in the instructions for the above device.
- I'm assuming you feed this a constant 120v and the device's on/off is executed inside the driver and NOT via a dumb line voltage switch on the wall as you'd be messing w/ your mesh every time you turned the light on and off.
*Is there a speed/stability difference between zigbee or z-wave? I have about 10 zwave devices.. and I'm not impressed with the speed, and set up.. especially compared to the lutron devices (even when it's going through 2 hubs). The device would be about 20' from the hubitat through the floor.
*finally is there any way within Hubitat to create a dimming level to color temp relationship mapping? IE if I want to mimic a traditional halogen I'd set higher dimming to 2.7k and when dimming is low set the dimming level to 2.4k.
thanks so much!
