I’m still relatively knew with openHAB but am getting used to it. The next project I want to do is put controllable LED lights behind the TV’s as well as some accent lights. I think the Philips Hue accent lights and LED strips are very expensive.
I’ve been looking at a couple of ways to do this and seemed to be at a delima as to which route I should go.
The first option is to try something like this:
If I buy all the parts I’m missing, its going to be around $55 but with a lot left over to do more lights. I have a coding background but a little less confident on the wiring part. Doesn’t seem too hard and I’ve done a little in the past. It would give me an opportunity to learn. From my understanding this method is paired with MQTT.
I also found this:
It goes with the exact lights I have. I found a thread somewhere where someone used this with openHAB2 but I can’t seem to relocate it now.
I’m not sure which route I should take. I’m thinking option 1 would give the most control? My plan is to setup scenes with these and have them match my Hue bulbs as close as possible. I’m just wondering what others have used. Thanks.
