    I'm going to direct wire and link LED undercabinet lighting for our kitchen. Dimmable is good, selectable color temp is a bonus, but don't need any smart app features. Any particular brand I should go with or are they all the same? Home Depot and Lowes have Feit, Commercial Electric, Good Earth...

    Hello! Years ago I built an infinity mirror with a shadowbox and LED strips. It's great! I hang it on the wall or ceiling, depending on my space. I just moved into a new apartment and want to replace a ceiling light with my mirror. I removed the light and wired a short extension cable into the...

I also wonder if i could change brightness control with how close i move my hand(IR, Ultrasound, Laser distance) for instance, put my hand over what I'm...

    When I removed the old fixture the wires coming out of the can are both white. I understand that old halogen lamps are not polarity sensitive, but now what. do I do? It is possible to install the LED kit using the existing wiring?

    Replaced incandescent downlight with LED inserts a few weeks ago - the LEDs flicker on dimmer switches. I know all about LED flickering, and was sure to get an LED compatible dimmer. I even switched to a different brand of LED downlight for these recessed lights while sure to read the reviews...

    Hello! I have one set of LED lights on a dimmer that flicker/flash brighter randomly. Here's a video: (note the video is slow-mo, the flickering is very fast real time) My Google skills are failing me, as it seems most commonly LEDs will dim when they flicker, not get brighter, so it's hard to...

    I'm looking at adding some under cabinet low voltage led based lighting in our kitchen. About 6 feet or so on both sides of the range hood. Unfortunately there isn't a readily accessible power outlet in the cabinets. I'm thinking the easiest to method gain an outlet for that purpose would be...

    I am installing Dimmable LED Rope Light (ETL-Listed 110V 120V AC) - linked below - along the molding in my media room. My question is, am I able to hardwire something like this to a dimmer switch if I use a junction box, etc.? Or, can I just plug it in to an outlet and connect said outlet to a...

    Hey everyone. I am in the process of getting my shop lights installed. I plan on 6 fixtures of 10,000 lumen 100watt led lights from harbor freight. I have already pulled wire to j boxes. The fixtures say they are capable of being linkable up to four fixtures. This might be a stupid question but...

    I have two LED lights (identical fixed lamps on a ceiling about 6' apart) on a dimmer and one of them keeps occasionally flickering. This has been happening for years. I have tried swapping the bulbs (with each other and new ones) and swapping the fixtures with each other. I have also tried a...

    Hi My home was built in the 70s. There are three halogen can lights in the dining room. The lights are 50w and they get SUPER hot. I removed the lights and clipped the two wires so I could rewire to a pendant light. The first one had a little bit of power but then it went away. The other two...

    Maybe a dumb question, but I'm doing my own wiring for a custom Sprinter Van build. I'm wondering if I can have a switch in the middle of a circuit of LED lights. So basically, it would be + 12v Battery -> LED lights -> 2 way Switch -> LED lights -> - Battery/Ground. I'd really appreciate any...

    Regular compasses don't seem to work in my car (too much metal?), so I want to replace the mirror with one that has a compass built in (different sensing method). The one I want takes <200mA to feed the compass, but I'm not sure if that means its memory or its display. Could I leave it plugged...
