I have been looking for some better lighting
in the scamp
and I think I have come up with something that works great for me. The strips are warm white, they diffuse well with the covers, the switch is built into the strip, and it has the ability to dim. These strips are extremely bright on full power and this one strip lights
up most of the scamp
. I tapped into the power in the existing kitchen light
, i may replace the light
in the future with a long led strip under the whole cabinet, but i haven't decided if something like marine-tex will cover the rivet holes well enough.
There is a blue status light
on the capacities touch switch, i am experimenting with covering it for now, if its a problem at night I will remove the led and just use the black dot as a visual for where to touch the strip to turn it on and dim it. (quick tip, the round sticker is just electrical
tape that was stuck to wax paper and cut out with a standard hole puncher)
In the future I think I will be replacing my reading lights
with the same style of led strip.
Here is an amazon parts list:
Capacitive touch dimmer switches
5630 led strip, which has bigger and brigher leds than strips of the past
Aluminum led channel
