Does anyone have experience with this color changing LED rope lighting? I know it was mentioned in the thread earlier. So does anyone own it?Link
I will be hard wiring it to romex in my rope light tray hooked up to an Insteon dimmer. If I ran an IR repeater to the rope light could I then control it with a harmony or iRule via the Insteon dimmer switch? I guess the dimmer switch would turn it on and off and the IR would control the color. Is this correct? Is there a better way to do this?
Is there a specific type of connector that is best to make the 4 turns necessary to daisy chain this thing in my rope light tray? These can be cut every 3 LED's. There are 150 LED's per 16.4' so I think that would be an LED about every 1.2''. Someone check my math. If that is true then you can cut it every 3.4'' which I hope would work to make turns but I do have a very tight space so if it does not come out exactly right what is the best way to deal with that?
I am also considering incandescent rope lights. I thought about getting the 150' spool of 1/2'' for $80 through 1000 bulbs and running it triple since I only need about 43'. Is this a good idea? Do I need the extra brightness? I have a very very small rope light tray only 1.5-2'' across and around 2.5'' tall (I will need to measure again). Any problems with this?
