I am a little confused as to how this works.

You obviously get a strip of light, but does one end connect to an outlet? And if you cut it down to size what happens to the end that has been cut off?

It turns into a snake and eats your children.

So don't do it.

it works the same way as any other LED light strip.

there's a connector that goes to power.

if you cut it down, then you can either get another power connector and attach it to the new strip or you can do some soldering

thank you for that, I have been pondering that for quite some tie.

Not a bad price but think it may cheaper on Black Friday from Amazon if you can wait, last time it was on offer in July it was less than £50

I love my hue lights but these light strip prices are ridiculous considering how cheap rgb led light strips are from banggood etc

I disagree, I love my Hue lights as well but I think a Light Strip is much better value and twice as bright as a single Hue Colour Lamp.

I found the price of these crazy so I did some research and have bought a Dresden zigbee controller. This works perfectly with the Phillips hue bridge for a fraction of the price of Phillips units. The rgbw strip is then only 16 quid for 5metres and gives an excellent light

That says £51 just for the controller. I suppose it's cheaper for many metres, but not for just a couple. Did you manage to get the controller somewhere else cheaper?

you need to add a suitable power supply to that and also have the DIY ability to hard wire it into the controller, only really worth it if you want longer that the Hue's 2metres as your not really saving much compared to the genuine Philips stuff, also its not 'Homekit' certified if you need that.

I have one inside a thing bit of plastic tubing along the bath tub to light across the bathroom floor. I also have another at the very top of the lounge wall, again hidden this time with some wood painted the same black as the wall. I've had to hide both as they are super ugly. It's a shame they aren't just an opaque white line or something. Obviously I also have some under kitchen units as well.

Yes true. I bought a power supply and 10 metres strip and it came to £100 in total. The extensions for the Phillips hue was what put me off. TBH I thought this deal was for only light strip without supply so have some heat ;)
