Recently moved into a new house back in Sept and currently there are 12VAC bulbs under the cabinets and a 120V switch next to the counter that turns them off/on.
I have located the 12VAC transformer and I was planning on using the existing wiring.
Looking for some recommendations for LED lighting. I do want at least the capability for tunable white, although full RGB support would be nice but is not required. Also since I do have the switch next the counter, it would be nice to incorporate it, but I am open to anything.
I made my own using this kit. The controller works with HUE or directly with hubitat. Custom cut the led strip and inserted white wiring between where I didn't want LEDs to be. I did this for bottom and top of my cabinets.
Looks good. Right now I just have the bulbs by the counter. I was thinking about adding some LED on the top like you did as well. I figured I could extend the wiring through the inside of the cabinet and through the top.
Did you mount the LEDs along the center underside of the cabinet?
So after looking through the options it looks like to use existing wiring I will need a RGB controller at each of the 3 locations, since the existing wiring is just 2-wire 12VAC. I would have no way without running new wires to get the extra leads for LED, since the lighting is split in 3 zones with the kitchen layout.
I am thinking about adding an RGB Zigbee controller at each of the 3 locations using the existing wiring. I would then replace the 12VAC transformer with a 120V-12V/24VDC adapter to power all 3 zones.
