Hi all - I'm slowly moving to smart bulbs & plugs - currently only have Alexa controlled TP-Link plugs and 1 TP-link bulb and KASA app. Working great for the Christmas tree lights and icicle lights this year.
We have the old style under cabinet kitchen lighting installed in the kitchen which includes 3 tube bulbs and 3 downlighters on the one circuit/switch (hidden wiring behind walls) etc.
I'm no electrician - but I was wondering would the following work.
1) Can I use the existing switch and electrical wiring?
2) replace the 3 tube bulb units with 3 led lighting strips (and maybe a wifi switch). Is it possible to use the existing wiring and then use led connectors to 'join' with existing electrical wiring?
3) What options do I have for the 3 downlighters in the cabinet pelmet on this circuit - the led strip lighting wouldn't work there.
4) Also is it possible to include a motion detector unit to turn on led strips somewhere in this setup?
Sorry for all the probably 'dumb' questions - but I'd like to work on 'smartening' up my home - and the kitchen cabinets are where I'd like to start.
After that I want to move to the multitude of downlighters we have in porch (2), hall (5), the sitting room (4), Living room (4), general kitchen ceiling (9) and even the bedroom (6) - why we installed so many downlighters I'll never know. What're people's ideas to replace these and to be able to turn off / on remotely through an app and control with Alexa.
Appreciate all feedback
