Brand new HE user here. My first hub ever. I have a little experience with X10 stuff from a million years ago.
In my kitchen, I have a 4-gang switch box that controls cabinet lighting. I'm looking for ideas/inspiration/best practices on upgrading to smart lighting.
The existing lights are all 110V.
I want to replace 3 different lights:
Under cabinet. I think dimmable white LED strips here would be great.
Over cabinet. Would prefer RGBW here. Bonus if I can make them dance to music, and do other party tricks.
Inside Cabinet. These might be more problematic. 3 separate cabinets have existing puck lights. They run hot and the bulbs burn out frequently. Not sure what I want to with these, The wiring is really tight and inaccessible.
Here's a quick diagram of what's inside the switch box:
This has nothing to do with your switch question since I'm not an expert on hardwired devices but I just switched some of my puck lights to use led bulbs which are now available seemingly for everything w/o modification of the ballast (or at least for three different types in my case). I made this switch and then put a zwave device on the plug since I was not hardwired. The difference in heat was fantastic.
