I'm sure you will like the Hue lighting system just as much as I do, they are a major part of my rec / HT room now.
Zombie, does the Led strip just clip into the ballast? The strips you linked to work just as well as the matching strip?

So it's a standard connection?

I can barely finish my own projects.

lighting angle on the GU10's seems right, the various photos on their site are a good representation of how it looks in person.

The BR30's have identical features as the A19, not sure why there would be a variance in the marketing material. The main benefit I suppose is the size. it has a wider surface area than the A19 so it may have a better flood effect depending on what fixture was used. It might be worth picking one of these up to see if it will work in the room.

It's not a standard connection, just thin metal wire that has to be stripped and carefully inserted into the ballast.

Download this photo and zoom in a bit, you can see the connections here:

I wonder what level of electrical skills I'd need to pull that off?

there really isn't much to it besides stripping some of the plastic off the wiring of the LED's and inserting them into the controller.

The trick is to push down on this clip area to open up the metal prongs inside so that the wire can be inserted correctly for a good connection. you'll figure it out when you see it in person.

Ha, he's done so much already! His lighting is a great inspiration for what I'm putting together. Speaking of @zombie10k - I have the LED started pack light kit from Amazon that you liked me too. I don't have the FLS-PP Ip or HUE part going yet. With the LED light strips and the remote it comes with, its dimmest setting is still too bright for certain scenes I want to ultimately create. Will the FLS-PP Ip with HUE controls give me finer control over the dimming and in particular let me go quite a bit dimmer? Or regardless of how I drive these is the dimmest option I see now as dim as it goes? Thanks!

I'd say. He's gone above and beyond
