    I would be interested in these LEDs as well if you can find a link to them

      Don't know if these are the same, but I purchased similar from US Costco a while back.

      I am also pretty happy with the Fibaro LED controllers. I have three. The big advantage is easy Z-wave control. If you go this way, I would definitely use RGBW strips. I only have RGB and I think that the W would add some additional dimension.

        Would these work

        I would need to use 3 of them hooked together

          I have had a look in my local Costco, and they no longer have this LED strip. It isn't the Sylvania one that DSteiNeuro found. I had purchased this a couple of years ago, and waited for something that it could do. After hearing my poor old dog roll down the stairs in the dark, I had found it

          Blade: The Fibaro RGBW is for common anode LED strip (i.e. the tape will have a +12V {Or +24V} and three negatives for RGB {four negatives with RGBW} - the Fibaro module switches the negative side of the supply). You need to ensure that you have the correct polarity strip [Don't buy common cathode], and then be careful of the maximum watts drawn. The data sheet for the Fibaro module shows that it can supply 144W for a 12V strip (RGBW combined total wattage), and 288W for a 24V strip (RGBW combined total wattage). The LED strip that you have linked to does have terminals marked +,W,B,R,G so it is common anode strip.

            Anyone ever used one of these LED systems?

            I wonder if the Fibaro RGBW would control it

              I've set my first Fibaro RGBW controller yesterday and can some tell me why I'm not getting any Wattage reading when drawing about 62W? (@12v)
              and what would be the unknown (its a sensor multilevel command class) device?

                Hi johnny_holden,
                Which version of the z-wave plug in are you using ? I have HS3 Pro V3.0.0.293 and z-wave plug in version 3.0.1.87 and have similar devices, but it includes a root device. I would try excluding the Fibaro RGBW device and updating your z-wave plug in, if it is older than mine, then re-including the Fibaro RGBW device.

                I have a 1m remnant of my original LED tape, and that on a second Fibaro RGBW controller shows 4.6W in HS3 when RGB are all fully ON.
                Oh, and how do you know you are drawing 62W ?

                  One of the things - I often see Sooty Paul do when he fixes my system (frequently) is checks the associations...
                  I have often seen reporting of power fail when there are bad associations.
                  I would recommend adding more information - about your module from the zwave node page. What plugin versions your using for zwave. Stick. And association details.?

                    I am still trying to find a good RGBW led strip to use with this. I need about 64' of led strip

                      I Used 2 1/2 reels on the outside of the house under the eaves.

                            When you guys are changing the "custom color" via the color picker, did you notice the value does not save in HS3 after a refresh? Not sure how to make it stick.

                              CATHODE VS ANODE
                              This SOLVES the mystery on why most people's "fireplace" setting is Green! I just purchased NEW rgbw pucks to replace a WW and I tied it into my existing RGBW wiring powered by the Fibaro RGBW we're talking about. Hooked up all the colors in the proper slots, but when I turned on fireplace setting my new puck shows Red, but my old one shows green... hmmm. I look closer at the wiring and I originally swapped the G and R colors (why?) know it all makes sense. My RGB strips are common Cathode, and the new pucks are Anode... now do I pull ALL 300' (yes with multiple power supplies) and re-wire with the common anode? I really would like to see the fireplace light my living room in the proper colors... right now it's more like "radioactive mode"
                              Thank you for explaining this!
