RGB Lighting for 21st Century

Recommended Posts

A quick search and is seems RGB lightning is way outdated in technology. What solution can I go with that powers an RGB strip from Chandalier wiring in the ceiling so it's activated via a C4 Wireless switch on the wall? A wireless RGB Controller sits in the ceiling cavity and connects to the C4 controller via Zigbee (no different than any other wireless Zigbee device). Everything is powered via 120v using existing chandalier or fan wiring (no fan installed of course). I run the RGB strips out along the ceiling trim to my desired location and control the lighting through my C4 App. What solution gets me this?

I believe the best integration is Philips Hue. Philips has their own bridge that sits out in the open and connects to each Philips Hue light or strip.

Then you would leave power to the light on all the time and use a configurable keypad to control the light. A light switch might be useful in some cases, but all control of the lights is gone until the light switch is turned back on.

Sounds feasible, although Philips Hue is powered by standard outlet. Presumably this option requires converting a ceiling fan wiring into a standard outlet so there is a place to plug the Hue base into in the cileing, right?

Correct, but you do not have to have the Hue Bridge that close to the lights themselves.
