Some time ago, I already introduced you to the accessories from Light Solutions on the German Hueblog. In the meantime, the products are also available in the USA on Amazon.com. To be more precise, they are cables and adapters for the Philips Hue Lightstrip Plus of the latest generation.
You can find all Light Solutions products on this Amazon page. I would like to present some of them to you in detail – maybe there is something that will make your idea easier to realise.
Controller kit for more possibilities
With the current Lightstrip, you can fortunately separate the light strip from the ZigBee module again. The Controller Kit from Light Solutions can be inserted exactly in between. This gives you the option of using the other accessories not only between the Lightstrip and the extension, but also between the controller and the Lightstrip.
Extensions in different lengths
If you want to install a non-lighting extension between the controller and the beginning of the light strip or before a light strip extension, Light Solutions offers cables in different lengths.
Y-cable for two strings
With this splitter, you can connect two extensions to the end of a light strip. It can also be used with the Controller Kit, whereby an extension or a cut-off end of a Light Strip can be connected to the second string.
Adapter V3 light strip to V4 extension
If you want to extend an old light strip, you currently have a problem, because the current extensions no longer fit due to the pin conversions. However, I can inform you that Light Solutions will soon offer a suitable adapter. As soon as this is available, I will of course contact you again.
Accessories for the Gradient Ambiance Lightstrip
Light Solutions also offers suitable accessories for the still quite new Philips Hue Gradient Ambiance Lightstrip, which can display several colours at the same time, including a controller kit and extensions.
