    Sorry, my post may have been misleading. I just copied and pasted the description for the equipment I bought from amazon. I actually don't use homekit.

    I plugged a string into a kilowatt meter to see what they were drawing in terms of watts. The most efficient seems to be the white light from the RGBW string. At full brightness it draws 7.2 watts. At roughly half brightness it is only drawing 2 watts.

    If my thinking is correct, using something like an altronix 12vdc backup battery power supply with a standard ub1280 (8ah) battery, a single string of these lights would run for 54 hours!

    Some strategically placed light strings around the house could be used as emergency lighting. Of course homeseer would have to have enough battery backup itself to trigger an event before dying but then the lights should remain on.
