In terms of install prep, here’s our preferred method:

  1. Set a standard 120v outlet, controlled by a switch. Add more than one outlets to the same switch if you want.
  2. Do your best to hide the outlets as much as is possible (i.e., putting inside or on top of a cabinet upper).
  3. Then cut, link, & adhere your light strips to their desired place, typically an indirect site (like under a cab, behind a mirror, or in a ceiling rib).
  4. Connect wires from LED strips to a single controller that connects to a transformer.
  5. Now plug your transformer into that concealed switched outlet (see step 1 & 2).
  6. Switch the outlet ON, and SHOWTIME!
  7. Control the action with the  wireless remote. For even more color options and timer capabilities, use a mobile device app, like WeMo.
