It says 2.1 amps/5 meters for the 30 LED/meter strip, 4.2 amps/5 meters for the 60 LED/meter strip. So, that's either a 5 amp @ 12V supply or a 10 amp @ 12V supply. I would not recommend hooking up the two strips in serial; the LEDs at the end of the second strip will likely be much dimmer than the ones at the beginning. You can get around this by running a ...

I have a house that has pretty high (12-13 foot) ceilings with recessed cans. I was using 120 Watt BR40 bulbs (the highest wattage allowed for the cans), and my electric bills were over the top. About 3 years ago, I switched to CFL's, and my bills went down significantly. Unfortunately, my wife did not like the CFL's (light color, long time to turn on, etc, ...

new-work Halo cans are adjustable to accommodate different ceiling height. Remove the reflector trim and the lamp. Then remove the three sheet metal screws from near the bottom of the can. Slowly work the can down and out. There is enough slack in the jacketed cable to let the can hang about six inches below the ceiling. Reach through the hole and unclip ...

Is 5050 the model number or the quantity of leds? The cable you linked to looks very lightweight - you don't need a lot of copper to run leds directly off of low voltage DC but you do need to handle it a lot during installation. I would get something heavier, just for the mechanical advantage. 16AWG stranded 300 volt should do nicely, the voltage rating is ...

You'll need 2 switches, one that controls set 1 and one that controls set 2. Remember a typical switch only has 2 states so there is no option to make that 3 states. There are various ways to ensure set 1 is always on when set 2 is on. One of which is putting the circuit for set 2 behind the switch for set 1 so set 2 only comes on when switch 1 AND switch ...

The 953P does not come with a socket extension. I'm not sure where you got it or why. With an H99 I can't see the use of one. You CANNOT use a 12v MR16 in an H99 can. In fact, the 1420 trim is not for use with the H99 series. It is ONLY for use with the H1499 series low voltage housings. See here: ...
