LED Light Strips
There are a couple things to consider when looking to purchase LED light strips.
- The color
- The style
- The connections
- The power options
- Dimmer options
- The quality
LED Colors and RGB
Obviously any under cabinet lighting in Scottsdale AZ or LED light strips would be easily obtained with any light at Homedepot.com But if you want to get a wide range of professional grade colors you should choose a company that specializes in LED light strips. There are the normal Red, Green and Blue colors, and RGB. RGB is not the greatest because of a lot of technical problems that happen with that particular “multicolor” option. Then there are the white colors. Warm white 3000k, Cool white 6000K and the Pure white 4200K.
LED Light Styles
There are the obvious puck lights, and standard bulb lights, but the newest and best way to light up any under counter area is with the led light strips. These strips can come in hard plastic tubes, or in bare strips with some sort of adhesive on the back. When you opt to purchase the strips or tubes you also need to keep in mind whether the light Diodes are actually projecting the light directly onto the surface or through a lens that disperses the light so as to produce an even look.
The Connections for LED Lights
There is a lot more to say about the styles, but they all connect the same to about a 1.3mm to 3.5mm size connector on the ends. In the past soldering was needed in order to set up certain LED lighting systems, and Inspired LED pioneered the “plug and play” system that is now dominating the LED lighting industry. They also offer their patented Tiger Paw connection which makes cutting LED light strips a breeze allowing multiple LED light strips to be connected.
The Power Options
The options with the power on these systems varies with what you are looking to do. There is transformers/ LED drivers (with lots of Wattage options and brands), there is simple wall plug in types with various Wattage and voltage options, and then there is even battery powered power options. What you are going to do with your lighting is also something to consider (such as dimming). Because what you want to do with your lights will determine what you need to purchase in order to make it work properly.
The Dimmer Options
There are a whole host of dimmers you can purchase such as Lutron or Leviton wall dimmers, but there is also a simple push button 4 position dimmer. Along with these types of dimmers you will also want to purchase a LED driver/ LED transformer.
Thickness of the LED light strip
There are various thicknesses with the LED lights available in the market today. Specifically on Amazon there are different companies that offer length, width and height options. The best options are the thinner LED light strips. Companies that will get them extremely thing and long while maintaining a very long lasting led operating hours, such as 100,000 hours from Under Cabinet Lighting Scottsdale
Basically as mentioned above, you will want a LED light strip that lasts long and continues to maintain it’s color over that long life. You will also want it to be made out of great materials, as well as able to maintain a very low level of energy usage.
