Smart Lamps can be controlled individually.
This is the best solution when the customer wants granular control over every light within a Space.
Smart Lamps also allow for a wider range of colours (Colour Temperature and RGB).
This does mean that for large installations, more Devices will be required meaning that multiple Hubs may be needed to complete the System.
When only standard(dimming) control is required, an Inline Dimmer may be the better option.
This means you can save costs by installing non-smart dimmable LED Lamps on a circuit and install a Smart Dimmer to control them.
This reduces the total amount of Smart Devices required, allowing you to control dozens of lights with a minimal amount of Smart Products, meaning you can install other Smart Products on one Hub.
For a physical or secondary control solution, you can install one of the options available such as the Battery Remote or the Kinetic Wall Switch.
This is especially useful when installing Smart Lamps or Inline Dimmers such as the 320W Dimmer.
If the Inline Rotary is installed, a Battery Rotary Dimmer can be used on circuits where a user would like 2-way dimming but their circuit would not meet the minimum load requirements for it.
Remember to always check the compatibility of the LED Strip, Driver and LED Strip Controller you will be using or get in touch with us.
Most LED Strip lengths cannot be over 5M due to the possibility of Voltage Drop (LEDs near the end of the Strip will appear dimmer or may not be turned on).
You can run multiple lengths in parallel if the Driver and Controller can handle the total wattage.
The Single Colour Controller requires a 2 Core cable for the LED Strip
The Colour Tunable Controller requires a 3 Core cable (Warm White / Cool White / Power)
The RGBCX Controller requires a 6 Core cable (Warm White / Cool White / Red / Green / Blue / Power)
Most Single Colour and Colour Tunable LED Strips will be fully compatible with the AOne Controllers.
The Recommended RGBCX LED Strip is EN-ST80RGBCX.
Most RGB LED Strips on the market are RGBW or simply RGB (they don’t have separate LED Chips for Warm White / Cool White) meaning that you will not be able to use all the features available on the AOne Controller.
We recommend checking that the RGB LED Strip you are purchasing has individual Chips for RGBCX (6 Cores).
While RGB and RGBW LED Strips can work, the LED Strip Controller has no way of differentiating between a full LED Strip and an RGB or RGBW one.
This means the App will display the Colour Tuning Slider but it will not control anything and the LED Strip may appear as Off until a colour from the Colour wheel is selected.
